Access Personal Checking Service extends identity verification contract with Callcredit Information Group

Access Personal CheckingAccess Personal Checking Services (APCS) has secured a further deal with Callcredit which will provide access to the consumer data expert’s powerful customer identity verification products and employee vetting tool.

APCS is one of the largest Disclosure and Barring Service umbrella bodies specialising in processing disclosures for a wide range of clients, from small businesses, to major public and private sector companies and organisations.

The new contract extension enables APCS to continue using products from Callcredit’s verification suite to provide third parties with employee vetting and disclosures.  By using CallID APCS has access to a powerful customer identity verification tool which can help to prevent fraud, and is designed to meet the requirements of organisations who need to verify customer details but do not want to carry out full anti-money laundering identity verification checks. In addition CallReport provides APCS with a basic identification, verification and authentication service confirming an applicant’s name, address and the presence or absence of any adverse public data.

Peter Mansfield, Managing Director, Callcredit Ltd said: “We have been working with APCS for two years providing our identity verification products helping the organisation to instantly check the accuracy of an individual’s identity and payment details and detect inconsistencies on behalf of its clients.  We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with them. 

“At Callcredit we understand the importance of companies being able to easily screen employees and recruit the right person for their business as well as identify individuals to help prevent fraud.”

Mark Gardner, Director at Access Personal Checking Services said:  “Our business focus is to provide our clients with the fastest and easiest to use online systems for processing DBS/CRB disclosures and other vetting services. The services  we obtain from Callcredit are a key element in our vetting process. We partnered with Callcredit because they offered the types of checks we were looking for, with quick response times and at reasonable and predictable costs. That is what our clients want and so our business grows steadily as we deliver a reliable, timely, and easy to use service, at a reasonable cost.”
