Enhancing Screening Services: Shield’s Latest Innovations

In today’s fast-paced world, where businesses face constant challenges and uncertainties, the need for reliable screening solutions has never been greater. Companies rely on screening services to ensure their operations’ safety, security, and integrity.

At Shield Screening, we’re constantly evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of our clients in the dynamic landscape of screening. Here are ways we have made significant strides in expanding our services and improving efficiency to better serve clients in 2024.


Expanded ATS Integrations: We have made integrating with your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) platforms easier than ever. Did you know that Shield Screening integrates with 80% of the leading platforms? Our seamless integrations allow our clients to consolidate their candidate tracking, hiring, screening, and onboarding processes into a single, user-friendly interface. Plus, with most integrations taking five hours or less of development work, you can start reaping the benefits of centralized workflow management in no time.

Candidate Turnaround Time: Our company has adopted a mobile-first approach and implemented multi-channel communication strategies, including email and text, to simplify the process for candidates. As a result of this strategic approach, we have observed a significant reduction of over 15% in the time it takes for candidates to complete their information after clients initiate a background check. This streamlined process subsequently leads to faster report turnaround times, equipping you with the ability to make quicker and more informed decisions.

National Criminal Coverage: We continually expand our coverage of the National Criminal Database search, offering one of the most comprehensive nationwide products on the market. You can be assured we leave no stone unturned in our quest for accuracy and reliability.

Criminal Record Information Management Process Improvement: We’ve revamped our Criminal Record Information Management (CRIM) process, making it 25% faster. Through meticulous analysis and optimization, we have streamlined our process to deliver timely and accurate results. You can count on efficient record management to safeguard your organization.

Drug Processing Speed: Speed and accuracy go hand in hand at Shield, ensuring swift yet reliable results. Investing in optimizing our drug screening process reduces processing times by a remarkable 63%. We are committed to providing the latest drug testing technology, such as the HOUND® CANNABIS BREATHALYZER, to help clients detect THC use in their workplace. 

Expanded Dispute Tracker: While we prioritize speed, it is not at the expense of quality. Our accuracy rate of 99.995% speaks volumes. We have also bolstered our dispute resolution system, providing comprehensive support to clients and candidates. You can trust any discrepancies will be promptly addressed, ensuring a fair and transparent process.

Customer Success Team: Your success is our top priority. That is why our team is committed to providing support and guidance at every step of the process. Rest assured, you are in the best hands as all of our tenured employees have individual Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) basic certifications obtained from the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA), and all compliance and tenured Public Records Specialists have individual PBSA advanced FCRA certifications.

Cybersecurity Focus: We take cybersecurity seriously and have implemented robust measures, including Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and redundancy, to safeguard your data against potential threats. We are certified by the Security Operations Center (SOC), demonstrating our commitment to maintaining the highest security standards.
