What You Get

Quick Turnaround

Sterling offers a full suite of criminal background checks powered by our pioneering CourtDirect™ technology, which provides instant access to criminal records located in county court jurisdictions.

Accuracy & Thoroughness

Screening processes include numerous checkpoints and quality controls, designed to deliver reliable information, so you can make informed hiring decisions.


Sterling's team of compliance professionals employ a strict “monitor, update, inform” lifecycle to keep tabs on all legislative and regulatory bodies and ensure you're in check.

Speed & Efficiency

Further streamline your workflow and improve overall time-to-hire by integrating background screening directly into Ultimate Software's UltiPro® Recruiting.

Global Expertise

With more than 196 countries to monitor, the key to global screening success is knowing where to search, the information to search for, and the required compliance requirements in each country.

Unparalleled Service

In each of our offices, we have teams of highly trained service and account professionals who are passionate about delivering the best service every day.

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.

That's why Ultimate Software partners with Sterling Talent Solutions to offer a comprehensive suite of cloud-based, background check and drug solutions.

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.

Next, the candidate receives an email to provide any additional information and provide consent. Once Sterling conducts the background check, the status of results are visible to the recruiter and/or hiring manager directly within UltiPro Recruiting. This bi-directional integration increases workforce productivity, reduces time-to-hire, and results in better quality hires.

Sterling Talent Solutions offers more than 100 unique services, including:

  • Criminal Record Checks
  • Employment & Education Verification
  • Credit Reports
  • Global Screening
  • Drug and Health Screening
  • Motor Vehicle Record Checks
