American DataBank Home Office

The 1990's saw the emergence of negligent hiring and negligent retention lawsuits, rising employee fraud and theft, and violence in the workplace. As a result, there was a dramatic increase in the number of companies performing background screening on applicants and employees. By 1998, however, the background screening industry’s focus had shifted to growth and profitability at the expense of quality research, reliable reports and customer support.

American DataBank was founded as a solution to these challenges. Our goal was to revolutionize the background screening industry by:

  • Conducting accurate, reliable background investigation research
  • Delivering the best possible turnaround times without compromising quality
  • Creating the first online background and drug screening system
  • Giving clients superior customer service

Top management was recruited from diverse fields, including law enforcement, human resources, healthcare, general business administration and information technology. We developed court record research practices and quality control processes designed to deliver timely results without compromising quality. Then, we added customer service protocol to ensure a positive client experience.

Our dedication to excellence has fueled our growth and positioned us as a background screening industry leader. Today, more than 3,000 diverse clients benefit from our consultative approach, customizable background and drug screening solutions and years of experience. The clients we serve range from small, local businesses to global, Fortune 500 companies. Our client referral rate is concrete proof of our strong commitment to integrity, value and service.
