How It Works

At Commercial Investigations LLC, we outshine the competition by creating tailored background investigation packages and utilizing a comprehensive investigative approach to bring maximum value and compliance with your current hiring process.

Commercial Investigations, powered by Accio Data, allows us to provide background investigations with human intervention to help you make the most informed hiring decisions. 

Through a bi-directional integration between Ultimate Software and Commercial Investigations LLC, recruiters and hiring managers can initiate employment background checks on candidates directly within UltiPro® Recruiting with just a few clicks.

Once a background check is initiated, information entered into UltiPro Recruiting is pre-populated in the background check form, reducing duplicate data entry. Then, an email is sent to the candidate to provide any additional information and to obtain consent.

With seamless access and an interactive workflow for managing background screening requirements, the solution offers a fast, simple, and intuitive user and applicant experience, allowing you to increase workforce productivity, reduce time-to-hire, and get more, high-quality hires.
