VALUE FOR YOU


WORKLOAD RELIEF
Many verifiers already know us and are integrated directly into our process, so they automatically come to us for information first instead of your employer.

DIRECT CONNECTIONS
Equifax experience in Canada with credentialling as well as our experience in the United States positions Equifax to immediately help reduce the number of verification requests coming into the employer. We help employers streamline the transfer of information from their organization to the verifier as they need it.

They will not have to bring in any income or employment verification paperwork or wait to have the verification completed.
