PBSA 2021: SJV Sets A New Tempo for the Background Screening Industry from Supersized Booth #202


For the employment background screening industry, PBSA 2021 marks a turning point. Unlike 2020 which was mired in uncertainty about nearly everything, the past 8 months have been all about growth in the background screening business.

Today Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) are awash in demand, asking how they will keep up rather than how they will remain open. With that backdrop, what has SJV, the largest independent wholesale data provider in the background screening industry, been up to and what can you expect to see at PBSA 2021?

Most importantly, for the past 18 months, SJV has stuck to its core principles of product and service strategies balancing people, process and technology. This year SJV is a PBSA platinum sponsor and CRAs will see a bigger, more efficient and more comprehensive SJV prepared to provide the data and service that CRAs need to meet today’s challenging screening demands.

SJV has added staff across the organization and re-organized to focus on strategic data initiatives as well as building out a massive call-center-like service organization to supplement CRAs’ internal verification resources, to meet increasing demand. (We’re processing in excess of 12,000 employment verifications per day! What are you waiting for?)

We've hired 319 people since January 1st and can onboard a new worker in 2 business days...

- Bill Wilder, SJV COO on our June 14, 2021 Podcast. CRA Toolbox: Managing this unpresendented Surge of Employment Verifications.

Supporting SJV’s service organization are numerous new technology innovations such as a powerful Rules Engine. Every CRA needs results in the form their customers require. Picking out required data and reformatting it is one of the tasks that impede CRAs ability to maximize efficiency. One of the reasons SJV is doing over 12,000 verifications per day is that our search results come out in exactly the form that every CRA needs. It’s like your own organization just grew to the exact size you need to meet demand. We’d love to talk with you about your own rules at PBSA. C’mon down!

But wait, there’s more… perhaps the most exciting activity at the show will be the panel discussion that SJV is moderating. Panelists explore the hot topic of advances in automation for employment verification. We’ve got Bill Wilder, COO at SJV, Kirill Klokov, CEO at Citadel ID and John Hartigan, Lead, US Healthcare at Velocity Network Foundation representing three different methods of making automation possible, who are each going to advocate their approach for bringing this essential technology to market. Moderation provided by industry veteran and former CRA entrepreneur, now SJVs CMO, Nick Fishman. It will be a lively discussion. Be there on Tuesday, September 14 at 1:00 pm PT. You don’t want to miss this!

So please join us at PBSA 2021. Bring your questions. Bring your business challenges. But most importantly, bring a desire to have a great time and learn how your CRA can do more business, be more profitable and have happier customers by working together with SJV, the largest independent wholesale data provider in the background screening industry. See you in Anaheim!
