As your company grows and your needs change, so do Edge’s and often times this means giving you more options with the latest technologies available. Using an Applicant Tracking System (ATS), like Oracle, eliminates the need for duplicate entry. As you enter information directly into Oracle, it is then pre-populated into Edge’s WebScreen system, creating fewer errors and quicker turnaround times, as well as the ability to eliminate the need for paper processing.

Edge Information Management, Inc. has successfully proved compliant with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and is formally recognized as “BSCC Accredited” by The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS).
Why is this important when choosing a background screening provider?
Each year, U.S. employers, organizations and governmental agencies request millions of consumer reports to assist with critical business decisions involving background screening. Background screening reports, which are categorized as consumer reports are currently regulated at both the federal and state level. Since its inception, NAPBS has believed that there is a strong need for a singular cohesive industry standard and therefore created the BSAAP. Governed by a strict professional standard composed of requirements and measurements, the BSAAP is positioned to become a widely recognized seal of approval that brings national recognition to background screening organizations (also referred to as Consumer Reporting Agencies). This recognition will stand as the industry “seal” representing a background screening organization’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and continued institutional improvement.
The NAPBS Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that will ensure the background screening organizations seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence. To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.
