New online service boosts collections, settlement ratesMortgagePress.comSourcingPoint Solutions, track down delinquent debtors, settlement processes
A new online service offered by SourcingPoint Solutions is
helping businesses track down delinquent debtors and conduct
faster, more efficient settlement processes.
PersonLocate, the newest addition to SourcingPoint Solutions'
PowerScreen background screening services line, gives users the
ability to access information that can help determine a person's
whereabouts. The new service automates a practice commonly referred
to as "skip tracing," and it helps attorneys, collections
professionals, bail bondsmen and even government agencies locate an
individual with minimal investment.
To initiate a search, an authorized user logs in to a simple,
secure online system from any computer with Internet access, and
enters a full or partial name or Social Security number. With a few
clicks, the user can order an electronic report that contains the
search subject's current and former addresses, aliases, vehicle
records, court actions, and known relatives and associates. The
service references more than 30 years of address information, and
it lets users quickly and efficiently check against billions of
records that represent nearly 98 percent of the United States'
According to Tom Clowdus, SourcingPoint Solutions' senior VP of
sales, the new PersonLocate service was introduced in response to
growing demand from professionals with needs "outside the scope" of
typical background screening applications.
"There was a whole segment of the business community missing out
on the benefits of our screening services," said Clowdus. "While
they understood and embraced the need for the employment and tenant
screening we offer, many were also looking for a cost-effective way
to recoup loss and speed settlement. Our PersonLocate service gives
them that capability." Clowdus added that the service, priced at
$35 per profile, is an "extremely economical way" to differentiate
between "valuable leads and dead ends."
The new PersonLocate service is available to registered
accountholders through the SourcingPoint Solutions Web site at www.sourcingpoint.com.
Since the service is part of the company's PowerScreen offering,
users get access to the complete PowerScreen line, including Social
Security traces and credit history checks, criminal history data,
Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) "watch list" checks, drug
screening, and employment eligibility status (I-9) verification.
Account setup is free, and training is provided.
