Know your Customer (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) are big problems that start-up financial services firms (and market places) need to deal with. Is Checkr going to become the developers default solution for background checks?
Checkr offers a service that simplifies the mostly manual process of requesting background checks and makes it easy to integrate into a company’s existing onboarding workflow. With its platform businesses could vet new workers through an online form or by integrating its API with their hiring systems. The company offers a series of background checks, including social security number validation, address history, sex offender searches, and checks against terrorist watch lists and national crime databases. It also provides driver background checks for an additional fee.
