Employment verification process streamlined through direct interface
EAST MOLINE, Ill. – EBE, the leader in transportation-specific workflow applications, has announced it has partnered with Equifax Workforce Solutions to allow employment verification reports to be requested and returned directly through its SHIPS (Shipping and Hauling Image Processing System™) recruiting software.
Through the new integration, a candidate’s employment history records can be requested by employers with permissible purpose directly from The Work Number(R) database from Equifax through the SHIPS recruiting solution. The reports are then received, stored, and available in the candidate’s file within SHIPS. This automation replaces the manual process of logging in to The Work Number to request and receive the reports outside of SHIPS recruiting solution. The integration eliminates the additional steps and time required to import these documents in the candidate’s file.
The integration with The Work Number is another example of providing value to EBE clients, said Cindy Nelson, EBE vice president of recruiting and onboarding solutions. “EBE is committed to streamlining the process of recruiting and onboarding candidates as quickly and efficiently as possible while providing visibility to the most qualified and safe drivers. Employment history records are a critical factor in determining the quality and eligibility of candidates,” she said. “We are privileged to work with such a reputable organization to ensure that carriers have immediate access to the data necessary to make the most informed hiring decision.”
Melissa Stephan, recruiting director at Melton Truck Lines, Inc., a national trucking company based in Tulsa, Okla., said her team is more efficient with the new, integrated process. “Our background investigators run numerous Equifax reports each week. Now that the process is self-contained within the EBE system, they spend 75% less time on this task. They say it’s life changing.”
The Work Number integration is available now with EBE’s current SHIPS recruiting software.
