Certn team celebrating $30 million Series B boost

Certn, the background screening vendor with the fastest and easiest background checks, was named one of the 2023 Report on Business magazine’s Top Growing Companies – this year we’re #16 out of 425!

We don’t want you to have to settle for the status quo, so we’re excited any time our innovative leadership in background screening gets noticed. Plus, we’re even more proud to have grown by 2,045% over the last three years in a time of economic challenges.

Thanks for being a part of our success story! Keep reading to learn more about what’s behind our growth and why we’re different.

Certn Background Check Process

Certn is used by employers to make informed hiring decisions and by landlords or property management companies to evaluate potential tenants. By conducting comprehensive background checks, organizations can mitigate risks associated with hiring employees or renting properties to individuals with undisclosed criminal records or other issues that may impact their suitability.

The Certn background check process, screening such as criminal background checks, employment verification, credit checks, education verification, and reference checks, is all online to streamline the process for everyone.

Say Goodbye to Slow Turnaround Times

Slow turnaround times can be a problem in background screening – it can take days and weeks for results. Add in international criminal record checks and watch timelines explode. Our mission at Certn is to make it easier and faster to share information and build trust, so the Certn background check process offers instant identity verification and results in under 15 minutes for basic criminal record checks.

No Bad UX

Manual and in-person processes are long and painful and lead to errors that make everyone frustrated. Can you relate? The Certn background check process is mobile-friendly and syncs with the tools you already use. Automated data pre-fill helps prevent errors and makes the process easier. 

Available Everywhere You Hire

Few background screening vendors offer domestic and international criminal record checks on one platform,  meaning multiple licences and logins. Certn is available everywhere you hire. What’s better? We integrate with leading applicant tracking systems and hiring platforms. Visit our Partner Marketplace for our full list of partners and no-code, no-dev integrations.

Industry-Leading Background Checks

Don’t let background checks be a bottleneck – we’re talking painfully slow turnaround times, outdated interfaces, and piecemeal coverage that makes hiring harder. Not with us.

The old way, background screening is lengthy and exhausting. With the Certn background check process, you get fully digital criminal record check results in as little as 15 minutes. You only pay for the checks you run, so there are no subscription or cancellation fees with Certn.
