The benefits eVerify offers their customers are found in the details of how their reports are obtained. Many competing companies offer the same benefits and the questions truly lie in the extra things each company offers.
- Simple purchasing plan
- Free Trial period
- Good customer support
- Many search types and screening services
eVerify has one of the simplest purchasing plans especially when compared to other competing people search engines. A single report that includes basic background checks information is available for purchase for $19.95. A subscription to become a member at eVerify is also available for $19.95 per month. The subscription allows for unlimited access to any individual search or background instant reports. Customers also have the ability to purchase the subscription but cancel it anytime they want to by contacting customer support.
One huge benefit offered is their free trial period for their customers. Unlike other background check companies, they have a long free trial period of five days. This allows customers to try out the reports and make an educated decision whether or not they are the right company for them. However, signing up for the free trial period automatically signs customers up for the membership subscription after the trial period is over. If a customer wants to cancel that subscription they will be billed the $19.95 cost of a single instant report.
eVerify also has a good customer support staff that is available to answer any questions or concerns a customer might have. They are available through phone or through online contact form that can be submitted and quickly returned with answers. Online reviews state that the customer support department is dedicated to helping customers as quickly and efficiently as possible. They are friendly and easy to work with when customers contact them for help.
Another benefit they have to offer its customers is their varying search types. A customer using them to search for an individual can start with only a name and a vague state location and get results. If that information is unknown, phone numbers, address, or even email address can be used to search for an individual. This gives customers a variety of ways to search for the people they are looking for. With the purchase of a subscription customers are also provided with more ways to conduct searches such as birthday, death date, and more. In addition to the numerous search type options, there are also many screening services available to include in the reports. The four main type of screenings they conduct are background checks, social media, and criminal records and people searches. Each of these reports includes but are not limited to; arrest or warrants, sex offender status, photos, blogs, address history, marriage or divorce records, property records, mug shots, relatives, associates and much more.
Accucom, eVerify’s parent company, is a big data company specializing in subscription-based services and housed public data throughout the country. Their goal is to gather and make public information accessible for everyone. They gather tons of records from courthouses, registries, law enforcement resources, and the World Wide Web and compile this information in their corporate databases. Here are some of the public records that Accucom maintains as part of their big data paradigm:
- Criminal Records
- Arrest/Warrant Records
- Marriage and Divorce
- Contract Details public online
- Court Records
- Census information
- Other publicly available records such as debt and tax levies and liens.
Accucom maintains its records with many different “brands,” including:
- Email Tracer
- Tenant Detector
eVerify is very similar to other online background check companies and offers many of the same benefits but unfortunately contains some of the same negatives.
- Not a Consumer Reporting Agency
Like some other background check companies, under the Fair Credit Reporting Act they are not considered a Consumer Reporting Agency. This mean customers can’t use eVerify for employment, credit or tenant screening or any other uses as defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Unlike other competing background check companies though, eVerify does have partnering companies that can provide background reports for these purposes. This can make choosing their website as the source for an online background check limited in its uses. Other websites might have similar partnering companies that broaden their ability and services that they provide to their customers. They are unfortunately limited in that it can only provide reports for reasons not defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act such as a relative or friend search, classmate, or other people searching reasons.
eVerify has a simple purchasing plan. Customers can purchase a single report for $19.95 or can subscribe to a monthly-unlimited report plan for $19.95 per month.
