4 Background Screening Add-Ons You Didn’t Know You Needed

Streamline Your Background Checks By Adding These Features in Fastrax®  

There are many elements that companies worry about on a day-to-day basis. Making sure that background screening is done correctly shouldn’t be one of those worries. At SELECTiON.COM®, we can manage your business’s compliance with the FCRA along with state and local background screening laws, so you don’t need to yourself. There are several features that you can add to your background screening account process to better manage your company’s time and resources. 

Applicant Entry 

Save valuable time by having the applicant fill out the background check form themselves. Our applicant entry feature can be added at no additional cost. Once activated, you can send a secure, one-time-use link to the applicant’s email through Fastrax®. We can customize the email to include a personalized message and greeting. From there, the applicant can input their information, including name, social security number, date of birth, and current address. Depending on the types of reports you wish to run, the form can be customized to include additional information such as employment history, education, or driver’s license number.  

Once the applicant has filled out their information, the background check can be run immediately. Alternatively, you can also place a hold on the form and review it before approving it for a background check. This is helpful when interviewing multiple job candidates and helps narrow down applicants before running a background check. 

Bulk Print   

Bulk print gives you the ability to be able to view or print more than one report at a time in Fastrax®. Check the box near the name of each applicant you’d like to see in order to convert the reports into a single PDF file. This allows you to easily print or download multiple reports at a time.   


Your company can manage the employee work authorization program through Fastrax® from start to finish. Our E-Verify portal will help you to ensure that your workforce is legally authorized to work.  

Once an account is created for you through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), you will have the ability to process your applicants from application to employment through Fastrax®. E-Verify should be run within three days of hire. The tab in Fastrax® is labeled “E-Verify” and allows you to create an E-Verify request from the already existing information in our system. Search for the applicant by name or SSN. From there, you will only need to type in the information on your employee’s I-9 form to start the E-Verify process. Most requests are returned instantaneously. Tentative Non-Conformation documents can easily be printed and for your employee’s signature. Our system will notify you once the employee has resolved any issues with their work authorization at the DHS or local Social Security Administration office. With Fastrax®, our program improves the efficiency of your Form I-9 employment verification process and the accuracy of your payroll and tax reporting.  

FCRA Delivery 

We stay up to date on FCRA regulations and provide the tools to keep you compliant with the click of a button via our proprietary web portal, Fastrax®. Once activated, you can choose to have our in-house staff mail the Pre-Adverse and Adverse Action Letter for a nominal fee, with the click of a button. 

You will see a “FCRA” tab on Fastrax®. After you’ve requested a FCRA mailing, a red envelope will show up next to the applicant’s name once a letter has been sent to the individual. The details on which letter was sent will be available to you in the log notes.
