InfoMart Celebrates 30 Years of Background Screening Innovation

September 18, 2019 – Marietta, GAInfoMart, a global provider of background screening and identity verification services, celebrates their 30th anniversary this month. InfoMart has a reputation for first-to-market products that proactively push the screening industry’s compliance, process, and technological standards.

“This industry has changed significantly in 30 years, from fax machines in the mid-80s to today’s innovative technology. AI, identity verification, and blockchain solutions are reshaping how people hire—and I’m proud to say InfoMart has been instrumental in the advancement of background screening,” said Tammy Cohen, founder and chief visionary officer of InfoMart and 2019’s most influential woman in background screening. In addition to consistently ranking as one of the top ten background screening providers, InfoMart is also the largest diverse-owned company in background checks.

InfoMart introduced the industry’s first-to-market mobile onboarding and identity screening platform over three years ago, a tool that other companies have just begun to develop while InfoMart pushes into new emerging markets. Anticipating the importance of data control, InfoMart developed the industry’s first self-sovereign screening platform. This streak of leading innovation is nothing new to the company. They introduced a nationwide criminal reporting network of 3,000 counties in the early ‘90s and the first system to allow electronic background check submissions. From that point forward, innovation remained a core value.

InfoMart also helped found the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA)—now the leading organization for the screening industry. On the company’s achievement, PBSA executive director Melissa Sorenson commented, “We’re pleased to congratulate one of our founding members, InfoMart, for reaching the institutional milestone of 30 years in business. As our member organizations succeed, so too will the Professional Background Screening Association’s impact on global business continue to expand.”

After 30 years in business, InfoMart has served tens of thousands of clients around the world, including many Fortune 500 corporations. “Our clients trust InfoMart to anticipate their needs. That philosophy drives our strategy and development teams. 30 years of experience has given our innovators a platform to shape the future of background screening and identity services. I’m proud to be a part of it,” said Erica Clausen-Lee, chief strategy officer of InfoMart.

Alongside their reputation as innovators in background screening, InfoMart also boasts an impressive record of awards and recognitions for employee engagement from publications like HR Magazine and the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The success of their I’M Committees, employee-led committees dedicated to education, leadership, personal and professional growth, health and community involvement, have earned InfoMart a spot as one of Atlanta’s “Best Places to Work” for the last seven consecutive years.

InfoMart’s impact on the background screening industry has been significant, and their influence continues to grow. “Tammy has built an incredibly successful company. The level of detail and care dedicated to our customer experience, technology and quality of service is unmatched in this field. It’s an honor to lead one of the most innovative and effective teams in the background screening industry,” said Marco Piovesan, CEO of InfoMart.

“I had confidence 30 years ago in this company and in the team,” added Cohen. “It’s rewarding to see our continued success years later—and even more rewarding to know the best is yet to come.”
