What You Get

Up-Front Accuracy

We do things right the first time (like sending actual people to courthouses to check records), so you don’t have messy legal issues on the back end.

Proactive Compliance

Don’t worry about keeping up with the ever-changing laws and regulations. Our Compliance Department lets you know when things change and makes sure you’re compliant.

Unmatched Data Security

We protect your candidates’ and employees’ personal information like it’s our own. (And we have the ISO Quality and Information Security certifications to back it up.)

User-Friendly Experience

You worked hard to create an experience that attracts top talent. We’ll continue that experience with a user-friendly screening portal and dedicated support when your candidates need it.

Quick & Easy Support

Our U.S.-based customer care team answers 98% of calls immediately and responds to emails in less than 10 minutes. That’s more time back in your day.

One-Stop Shop

No need to juggle different vendors for background screening, drug testing, occupational health screening and programs, and Form I-9/E-Verify processes. EBI does them all from under one roof.

How It Works

EBI's technology, powered by Accio Data, delivers pre-integrated solutions that help make you more competitive in the never-ending quest to assess and hire world-class talent.

We partner with Ultimate Software to offer you a direct link to UltiPro® Recruiting and improve efficiencies, reduce redundant data entry, save money, and improve the candidate experience. Submitting requests and getting results has never been easier.

Through our bi-directional integration, recruiters and hiring managers can initiate a pre-employment background check 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. Then, an email is sent to the candidate to provide any additional information and to obtain consent.
