How It Works

High-quality background checks are a crucial step in the hiring process, and employers need to ensure they are hiring the right people for the business.

We integrate with Ultimate Software to make it easier for our customers (Consumer Reporting Agencies, such as your background screening provider) to exchange data between UltiPro®’s suite of HCM solutions and the deverus platform.

With just a few clicks, recruiters and hiring managers can initiate a pre-employment background check on candidates directly within UltiPro Recruiting.

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 candidates 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.

"Candidates are consumers. Give them a great hiring experience that supports your business and your employer brand."
