" Do not hesitate to work with DataCheck. It is a wonderful company that delivers better and faster results than our previous provider, a very large, well known background screening company, who we left after many years! JFSA began working with DataCheck about a year ago and we never looked back. The website to place orders is very user friendly and the results arrive within 24 hours in most cases. In addition, DataCheck has excellent customer service and personal touch. They are always available to answer questions as needed. We are located on the east coast and DataCheck is on the west coast, and I was somewhat concerned in the beginning about being in a different time zone, but the time difference has never presented a problem to us. DataCheck met and exceeded all our expectations!"
