Orlando, FL, United States, 2011/11/03 - United Servicers Association (USA) endorses PlusOne Solutions and its dedication in pushing for industry-wide standards of credentialing - PlusOneSolutions.net.
PlusOne Solutions, Inc., a provider of comprehensive management services including criminal background and drug screens, insurance verification, online training, and recruiting and dispatch for the in-home service industry, announced an agreement with the United Servicers Association (USA) to develop industry standards for the credentialing of in-home service providers. USA is one of the largest trade associations representing the appliance service industry. In addition, PlusOne has been approved to provide background and drug screenings for USA’s member companies.
"We want each of our members to have confidence in their workforce while giving the homeowners and businesses they serve peace of mind,” said Lance Kimball, president of USA. “This is gained by knowing they have a trusted technician serving them.”
PlusOne offers criminal background and drug screenings that are universally accepted throughout the appliance and consumer electronics industries in the US and Canada. This portability saves dealers and contractors the time and expense of having to repeat the screening process, which enables them to remain in-compliance with multiple manufacturers for a two-year period. PlusOne also serves as a central source for manufacturers and retailers to confirm proof of compliance for their contracted servicing companies including insurance and contract documentation.
“We are looking forward to working with USA and its members,” said Craig Reilly, CEO of PlusOne Solutions. “Our common goal is to match trusted contractors with trusted brands.”
While the industry has been moving toward an industry standard, USA’s partnership with PlusOne is an effort to solidify a high bar when it comes to performing thorough criminal background screens and drug tests of technicians and personnel who work in people’s homes.
Many retailers, manufacturers, and third party administrators in the service industry already contractually require their service networks be background screened and/or drug tested including Samsung, Fisher & Paykel, Brand Source, NEW Customer Service Companies, Inc., and Assurant Solutions.
