Building A Better Background Check Company


How We Got Our Start

In the early 2000’s, data was rapidly being digitized. Court records and other public documents were suddenly more accessible. This presented a huge opportunity for the background check industry to speed up the process while making it more affordable. But because it was dominated by older companies with outdated technology, clunky business practices, and an uneasy relationship with the digital realm, legacy providers were slow to take advantage of it. 

Meanwhile, in Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs Matthew and Brian Monahan were running an innovative and driven technology team that had already built simple, straightforward, all-digital products to help consumers access this newly digitized public records data. They spotted an opportunity to aggregate the data in ways that would help overstretched and under-served HR and Operations people in small businesses get background checks done quickly, affordably, and in a way that eased the burden of compliance. They created AmeriaScan and built a self-service backgroundcheck platform for businesses that’s simple to use. 

Today at AmeriaScan we’re continuing our quest to take the work out of background checks and help employers speed up their decision flows. Built to be simple, easy to use, and configurable, AmeriaScan intuitive, paperless workflow allows you to bring on new hires faster, with less hassle, and with more confidence than any other service.

That's why more than 100 employers have trusted AmeriaScan for employment screening services.
