National Sign Manufacturing Company

Our experience in the past 30 or so days in transitioning to Alliance 2020 has been much easier than I expected. Yes, your technology is impressive and nice, but it's the PEOPLE who have made it truly special. They all seem to be happy working there, and that comes through in their emails and phone calls.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share our good experience with you. We look forward to many years ahead of doing business together.

Cathy B. | Sr. Administrative Manager

Regional Fire Authority

We have been very pleased with not only the process and how easy and efficient it is but, their customer service as well. They have worked with us to make custom additions to our process and have always completed any and all requests, verification of employment, and education in a very timely fashion saving us valuable time here at our office and allowing us to focus on what we do best.

Thanks Alliance 2020!

Jennifer Z. | Human Resources Specialist

Regional Pest Control Company

Working with Alliance 2020 helps our organization verify past employment and educational degrees in a timely and professional manner. The turnaround is quick because the professionals at Alliance 2020 respond promptly; and repeatedly contact the employer or institution each day and by multiple means such as by phone, email, and fax. They are well worth the money whether you are calculating Cost Per Hire or the labor hours spent for an hourly or salary employee to do the same work as consistently and honestly as Alliance 2020. You can read the feedback provided during professional reference checks and know within minutes how a candidate's reference responded to important pre-employment questions. If nothing else the verification service allows for a consistent and accurate approach to assess individuals in regard to their honesty about past employment and selection when it comes to professional references.

Alex E. | Talent Development Specialist

Statewide Health Insurance Agency

I think the number one reason for having Alliance 2020 perform verifications for us is that it is a huge time saver. The process is consistent for each candidate. I also appreciate the direct communications from Alliance team members when they find they need additional information or guidance on how to proceed.

Suzette N. | Talent Acquisition Specialist

Local Real Estate Broker

We have been using Alliance 2020 for all our screening needs for over 10 years. Primarily screening applications for tenancy. We can always count on Alliance 2020 for their thorough and prompt screening and their easy to understand reports. Time is always of the essence in our business and it's nice to know that our screening company understands this as well. An additional plus is we can always get a real person to answer any questions that might arise from an application. In the world of modern technology, it’s nice to have a live person answer the phone.
