SafeGuard is pre-integrated with the most widely used ATS and HR systems, reducing the time and cost required to begin ordering background checks.
What are the Benefits of Integrating Applicant Tracking Software with SafeGuard Background Screening ?
Does your organization use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) for recruiting and onboarding new employees? How about an HRIS (Human Resources Information System) to automate and manage human resource functions? If so, it might be beneficial to make the shift and integrate your background screening too. Listed below are a few of the advantages you will realize when you decide to integrate your ATS or HRIS system with SafeGuard background screening provider:
Eliminate Redundant Data Entry and Duplicate Processes
By connecting your applicant tracking system or human resources information system to SafeGuard background screening, your staff can order and retrieve the background screening and drug testing reports with the push of a button. This will save valuable time by eliminating the need to login to an outside website to order and retrieve background screening report, as well as the duplication of data entry, and errors that sometimes result from this process.
SafeGuard Background Screening is pre-integrated with almost every commercial ATA and HR platform on the market, and has seamlessly integrated with scores of other private, internal HRIS platforms.
Better Reporting and Data Analysis
Your company’s data is growing daily. It can be difficult to pool related data together to collect actionable insights when a different information systems are being used. Having all of your information together and available within your ATS or HRIS means that internal reports can use that data and cross reference it with other information to compile reports that can be used for improvements.
Keeping all of your data on one platform reduces the potential for private or protected information to be breached. This eliminates email transmission, or the need to maintain a separate set of credential required to login to an outside system to download background screening reports. Even reports that are faxed back to you can sit in the open for prying eyes to see. When the information is transmitted between your ATS or HRIS system and the background screening company, the information remains encrypted and secure. You can leverage the same internal access controls that govern your HR information to also control who sees and reviews these background screening reports.
If you are still printing out background screening reports or receiving them via fax, then integration can reduce or eliminate the paper waste entirely. This also reduces workplace clutter and reliance on document destruction services. It also reduces your company’s negative impact on the environment. In the long run, every bit helps, and you can feel better knowing that you are part of the solution for improving the environment.
