Anticipating unprecedented growth for pre-employment and renter background screening and other background check services, Nationwide Background Checks, LLC today announced a strategic alliance with PointHR, Inc. based in Dallas, TX.

"Government agencies report fourfold growth over previous years in the use of services like E-Verify and FBI Live Scan," says Paul Bryant, CEO and president of Nationwide. "We expect 400% growth just in California, mainly among small and medium-sized businesses that are screening their existing workforce and rehires, but also from landlords and private individuals who need to conduct personal background checks on prospective renters and babysitters, and even former spouses."

Founded in 2007 in Huntington Beach, CA, Nationwide Background Checks enters a marketplace that expects online convenience and wide range of services. "Our alliance with PointHR has allowed us to expand our online services, plus we have added drug testing, fingerprint with Live Scan, and hands-on criminal searches," says Bryant. Full services include employment and education confirmation, professional certification and licensing verification, drivers license record check, criminal background check, credit check (for pre-employment, renter), I-9 residency (E-Verify), social security trace, bankruptcy and eviction trace, and other vital background check services.

Jim Castor, Point HR president, considers California a golden opportunity for growth. "Despite the myriad obstacles for doing business in California, we see this partnership with Nationwide as a great opportunity for both businesses to get a toehold on the new growth that is projected for the next two to three years," says Castor. "Nationwide gives us an alliance in a state where we believe growth will be particularly high for years."

Nationwide now operates two business portals: is geared toward personal use; PointHR-California is geared toward the needs of employers and property managers in California.

"Thanks to our strategic alliance with PointHR, we now offer a state-of-the-art online service and extremely competitive pricing. Whether the end-user looks to conduct one or two searches or 200, we can now accommodate all requests accurately, in a timely manner, and at the lowest cost to the user," says Bryant.

"These days, HR departments are pulled in so many different directions. Outsourcing background screening makes sense from a management stand-point and also from the perspective of the vital role background screening plays in workplace safety. Moreover, we are focused on making these services as cost-effective as possible while maintaining the highest level of professionalism," comments Castor. "You will not see any of our operations pander to so-called 'free background check' propositions that frequent the web. All of our services are high quality and professional."

Bryant observes that this sector presents new investment opportunity as the economy and job market begins the long road to recovery. "Business owners, landlords and private individuals are looking for ways to ensure safety in the workplace and at home. Background screening services are already an indispensable feature in communities throughout the country. We are looking forward to serving them with the best possible product."

PointHR, Inc. is a private corporation involved in the background search industry for more than 10 years. Nationwide Background Checks, LLC began operations in 2007 serving California businesses and private parties.
