And Identity Services
For The Retail Industry

The Fresh Market Sees Quick Fulfillment During COVID-19 with Sterling's Help
Since we partnered with Sterling on our background check program in 2017, we have seen a dramatic decrease of 53% in average fulfillment turnaround time as a result of their proprietary technology and automation. Despite court closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continued seeing our orders fulfilled in less than one business day on average. We appreciate the customized reports Sterling provides regarding COVID-19 impacted searches, as well as its proactive communication, collaborative consultative engagement, and ongoing commitment to quality during a time when the health and safety of our community is top priority.”

Colony Brands Appreciates Sterling's Longstanding Service
We have been a customer of Sterling’s for over 15 years. We’ve assessed other vendors in the past, and they have a difficult time competing with Sterling’s turnaround time and overall level of customer service. We have seen very minimal decline in their service despite the pandemic currently facing the world today. We are fortunate that our screening services are more isolated to the US Midwest, where we have not seen nearly as many impacts to accessing court houses. Our partnership is and continues to be strong."
