Tascent powers new fingerprinting solution for employee background check and onboarding


Background check and drug screening solution provider First Advantage has launched a Mobile Fingerprint Capture solution, through a partnership with Tascent. The solution, which integrates the Tascent Enterprise Suite and Tascent MX, accelerates the screening time for job candidates and improve their experience with recruiters and employers, as companies can collect fingerprints without sending them to a third-party, according to the announcement.

With fingerprinting commonly required in child and health care, financial services and transportation careers, job candidates have often been required to visit another physical location or wait for a scheduled appointment with a “mobile” unit. First Advantage says that with low unemployment in the U.S., elongated hiring cycles are costing prospective employers candidates.

“Our background check solutions are available via mobile device, and we sought to deliver that same convenience and speed through our biometric partner – particularly at a time in our industry when minimizing time-to-hire is a crucial differentiator,” comments First Advantage Senior Vice President and General Manager, Biometrics Solutions, Ranjeev Teelock. “This new technology enables our clients to capture candidate fingerprints quickly, cost-effectively and without interruptions.”

Tascent MX, which supports multimodal mobile biometrics, was launched in April, and Tascent VP of Sales for MEA/CIS Nidal Mallouhi told Biometric Update at ID4Africa 2018 that the technology is part of the company’s move “to change the concept of enrollment” to one leveraging the familiar capabilities and small size of current consumer mobile devices.

“We’re thrilled to be able to collaborate with First Advantage as it brings this groundbreaking service to market,” said Joey Pritikin, Founder and Co-CEO of Tascent. “The combination of Tascent’s leading technology and First Advantage’s customer-centric approach and integrated services offering will give companies across the U.S. a modern, efficient and easily accessible way to establish and verify employee identity.”
