You’ve worked hard to build your business and establish trust with your customers. Protect your brand with comprehensive background screening from SterlingNOW.

Industry-leading protection

Many other providers rely exclusively on a national database search, with no data verification. SterlingNOW goes straight to the source to provide a more complete picture of criminal history, and results undergo QA for validation and compliance.

Fast results

SterlingNOW leverages proprietary CourtDirect™ technology to deliver trusted results quickly. 66% of criminal searches are complete within the hour, and 90% are done within a day.

Decades of trusted experience

Sterling has pioneered background screening innovation for more than 40 years, serving over 25,000 customers and conducting more than 100 million annual screens.

Self-service customizations

SterlingNOW has three different levels of background checks to match the needs of your business, and you can add customizations including driver’s records and education verification.

Easy (and free!) account setup

No sales calls or hidden setup fees. Create your account and order a self-service, online background check in under five minutes.

Compliance by design

SterlingNOW is fully compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS).
