EmployeeScreenIQ is pleased to announce the following enhancements to our website, My EmployeeScreen 4.0!

(Effective July 27, 2009)

Order Placement Enhancements

    If you previously conducted a background check but accidentally request it a 2nd time, My EmployeeScreen 4.0 will notify you of a duplicate order before you submit it. This enhancement crosscheck’s your candidate’s Social Security Number with your previous orders. The Social Security Administration has never issued a number greater than 772-00-0000. If you order a Social Security Number Trace, My EmployeeScreen 4.0 will validate the Social Security Number and alert you before you proceed with the rest of the order. By entering just a zip code, the state and city will automatically populate, simplifying the order entry process. EmployeescreenIQ can create a drop down list for clients that require adding P.O. Numbers, Billing Codes, etc. to the report. EmployeeScreenIQ will gladly customize this solution based on your specific needs. Clients can now enter more than 3 alias names to search, if needed. Simply click on the green “+” button to add all information your applicant supplied to you.
