Discovering the answers needed for an effective background checks client requires delivering on your promise to gather intelligence on the subject you are investigating. Increasingly the investigative industry is more interested in Electronically Stored Information (ESI) than many of the old methods of collecting data. Whether the information comes from private data sources (e.g. CLEAR, TLO, and IRB), from public records, or from electronic evidence (e.g. email records and internet log files), the availability of large volumes of intelligence in an electronic format is appealing. Modern investigators seize the opportunity to access this information with apparent simplicity, efficiency and convenience while leveraging the intel into more valuable case results.
