Our partnership with KMS will provide our clients with access to the industry’s leading online solution for I-9 processing, verification, storage and maintenance
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2007
Sterling Testing Systems, a leading provider of employment screening services, has entered a partnership with California-based Knowledge Management Systems (KMS), which streamlines manual and paper-intensive business processes, especially those related to on-boarding new employees such as I-9 processing and verification.
The partnership will provide Sterling clients with access to the full suite of KMS services, including XpressHRTM, a tool that incorporates online forms, I-9 form processing and storage, document management, on-boarding workflow and electronic signature technology to capture, process, manage and integrate personnel data.
Prior to 2005, the U.S. Government required all U.S. companies to collect, manage, and store paper I-9 forms with employee "wet" signatures, which made on-boarding new employees a tedious and cumbersome task. With the changes in law regarding I-9’s, companies are now able to maintain electronic versions of documents, creating a more versatile and consistent system for employee on-boarding. KMS is able to leverage these changes to create a powerful and flexible tool for collecting and maintaining employee records, including I-9’s.
"Our partnership with KMS will provide our clients with access to the industry’s leading online solution for I-9 processing, verification, storage and maintenance," said Paul Mladineo, Vice President of Strategic Development at Sterling Testing Systems. "This will help employers better manage on-boarding new employees in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We also are excited to provide KMS’ customers with a seamless integration to our industry-leading background screening solutions."
"KMS is very excited about our partnership with Sterling Testing Systems," said Yolanda Parker, Principal, KMS. "The XpressHR I-9 module will allow Sterling to extend its screening offering to include the Basic Pilot program, which electronically verifies employment eligibility with the Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security. Sterling’s clients will benefit greatly from both the added confidence that their employees are eligible to work in the US as well as a streamlined and highly efficient hiring process."
