About Us

Our History

The founders of Amerisearch Background Alliance began their careers in the human resource, trust, banking, law, charitable gaming, and motor coach industries. Collectively, they witnessed that the screening procedures in these industries had many shortcomings which could easily be overcome. Through discussions and meetings with screening consultants and the Professional Background Screeners Association (PBSA), Amerisearch was formed in early 2006.

Our mission is to provide an easy-to-use comprehensive pre-employment information system, using screening methods that exceed the requirements governing consumer reporting agencies including the: Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as well as, all other industry-required federal, state, and municipal laws, regulations, acts, and ordinances.

Our team of experienced and well-trained personnel, provides detailed research to serve our client’s needs while also providing superior customer service. At the same time, innovative systems and technology are implemented to reduce turnaround times and improve human resource and security department efficiencies. 

Where We Are Today

Today, Amerisearch is a woman-owned business with approximately 2000 clients located in North America, Europe, and Africa.  Our clients range from 5 to 10,000 employees and perform background screening services that range from a few a year to 50 a day.

We are a certified Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), a certified member of the Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBENC), an accredited member of the Professional Background Screeners Association, and members of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), United Motor Coach Association (UMA), Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), and the Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors (PHCC).

Amerisearch Background Alliance is also a registered designated agent for Homeland Security’s E-verify system and approved by the State Department for international searches via Privacy Shield.

What We Do

Amerisearch provides a confidential encrypted portal that permits designated corporate employees to fill out the application screening information for verification and records search. Additionally, the applicant may access the portal through our invitation system to complete the required information.

The Amerisearch Portal also allows for the integration of many popular ATS systems providing a better overall application experience for potential new employees. This unique system is designed to reduce our client’s operational workload and provides them access to the system online at any time.

Before our clients receive each report with an adverse or negative result, the report is thoroughly reviewed by our compliance staff and when necessary additional due diligence is conducted by our researchers prior to the release of results. By employing this method, we provide maximum accuracy on all results.

Background check components include criminal, civil, federal, professional references, employer, education, social media reports, international and drug screenings.  All searches can be organized in prepared packages according to employment category.

On behalf of all of us at Amerisearch Background Alliance, we would like to welcome you as a highly valued customer.
