Raising the safety bar to ensure faster, accurate people decisions.
Not all background screening is created equal, and obtaining a complete picture of a candidate’s criminal history is harder than you think. With a vision to make the world a safer place, Sterling stands apart with our advanced technology, accuracy, and industry-leading turnaround times.
We Expose More Criminals
With Sterling’s premier package – Complete Criminal Locator – we use a multi-step locator process to cast a wider net and identify the most likely places to search for criminal records for each candidate. The Complete Criminal Locator is made up of three powerful locator tools – Social Security Number Trace, Enhanced Nationwide, and Locator Select. Together, the locator tools uncover tens of thousands more criminal records than instant database searches alone.
Gain Higher Quality Hires
Most background screening providers use third-party vendors to pull and aggregate criminal record data from courthouses. However, Sterling does things differently. With CourtDirect™ – our proprietary fulfillment technology – we have automated direct digital access to 2,300+ US county jurisdictions (or 85% of Sterling’s court records). And we don’t stop there. When automation isn’t available, we have our team of court runners. Court records are collected 39% faster by our court runners than third-party vendors. That’s the power of owning and controlling our channels.

Faster Time to Hire Using AI Innovation
Through our cutting-edge, proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) technology called Smart Data, we associate only relevant criminal information from courts in an automated way and then apply hiring criteria based on your business needs. And the results have been extraordinary.
We increased the speed of our criminal searches by 40% year-over-year, and 66% of our criminal searches now close in an hour.
