Integrated recruitment, HR and employee background checking software

Keying candidate data can make recruitment processes slow and inefficient, especially if you’re hiring for multiple positions at the same time. Our HR software creates a single source of truth for all your people data, speeding up your processes, improving data integrity, and maximising your chances to hire and retain top talent.

Full integration between Ciphr and Experian with single sign-on means that you no longer have to remember multiple logins and the data is automatically pulled across from Ciphr’s employee background checking system to Experian. For auditing purposes, you can produce a history of all the checks that you have carried out.

View and report on UK background checks' progress

Ciphr’s UK background checks portal enables you to view the progress of all your checks at any time. Once the checks are complete, the reports from Experian are available to HR to view in the system. The visual dashboard will help you spot any gaps or trends in checks’ results.

What is employee background checking software?

Traditionally, employee background checking software has been invaluable to the education sector, to ensure high standards of safeguarding are attained, as well as any job where candidates may deal with sensitive data. But it has also been used to verify identity and run candidate background checks, to prevent any unnecessary delays in the hiring process.

Usability is a key factor when selecting a system, as HR teams look to carry out multiple background checks without having to key the same data multiple times in different systems.

“The implementation of Ciphr iRecruit has been a smooth process and has streamlined the way that things are done here.”
