How It Works

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

Ultimate Software partners with Sarma to offer a comprehensive suite of cloud-based pre-employment and on-going employment background screening services.

Through a bi-directional integration between Ultimate and Sarma, powered by TazWorks, recruiters and hiring managers can initiate employment background and drug testing 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.
