Roswell, GA, United States, 2007/01/05 - ClearStar.net and BRB Publications have entered a partnership that will allow background screening firms using the ClearStar.net distribution network to obtain educational institution verification information and MVR validations from the BRB database.
ClearStar.net, a leading service provider for the employment screening industry, announced today the formation of a new partnership with BRB Publications. Under the terms of the arrangement, members of the ClearStar.net distribution network will now be able to gain direct access to the educational institution information as well as the state Motor Vehicle Records information in the BRB Publications database.
"Historically, education verifications have been a relentless job for background screening firms," explained R.J. Vale, CEO of ClearStar.net. "By integrating the BRB Publications database, we've eliminated many of the tedious steps and streamlined the verification process to save time and money for our members."
With ClearStar.net's new education service, suppliers or processors can search for colleges and technical schools in the BRB Database by name or location then view degrees granted and capture the contact information necessary to secure alumni verifications.
"Publishing thorough, up-to-date information for locating public records is the hallmark of our organization," said Mark Sankey, president of BRB Publications, Inc. "The seamless integration of our databases with ClearStar.net is an incredibly efficient use of our data that permits us to better serve the processors and suppliers in this industry."
In addition to the new education service, ClearStar.net members will now be able to perform Motor Vehicle Records validations utilizing the BRB Publications MVR database. Suppliers will be able to enter an applicant's driver's license number and determine whether it is the valid format for the state specified. If the entered license format is not valid for that state, then the state criteria can be viewed for clarification.
"Suppliers are increasingly looking for a single-source solution for managing their background screening operations," explained R.J. Vale, CEO of ClearStar.net. "By providing easy access to essential data sources like the databases from BRB Publications, we are further cementing ClearStar.net's commitment to our distribution network."
