Faster Turnaround Times & Better Support
Staffworks needs to move very fast to meet our clients needs. Our previous providers background checks often took a long time and we did not know why. Additionally, we kept finding errors on the report.. which could be difficult to read. With ScoutLogic, our report turnaround times are much faster and the customer service is so much better.
