Irvine-based HireRight – which provides customers with employment background, drug and health screening services – has collaborated with SilkRoad Technology Inc. to help customers better manage their employment screening programs through a new integrated system.

The platform, a combination of the HireRight Connect system, and SilkRoad’s OpenHire technology, will allow the latter's clients to perform more comprehensive screenings with increased efficiency and turnaround.

“We are extremely excited to offer our clients this capability from HireRight,” said Thomas Boyle, director of product strategy at SilkRoad. “Many of the world’s most successful companies use HireRight, and with this offering, our customers will be able to easily implement consistent-screening policies across their organizations.”

SilkRoad technology provides “software-as-a-service” solutions aimed at equipping companies with the tools to perform more thorough and accurate employment screenings. SilkRoad’s Life Suite system includes OpenHire, RedCarpet, Wingspan, GreenLight, Eprise and HeartBeat.

“HireRight pioneered the integration of employment screening in talent-management platforms, and we are delighted to be partnering with a leading innovator such as SilkRoad,” said Kevin Dunning, director of product management at HireRight. “Both companies offer easy-to-use, streamlined solutions for customers that can make a real difference in productivity, accuracy and, ultimately, customer satisfaction. We look forward to helping SilkRoad’s numerous clients across the globe work smarter by giving them the tools to make better-informed hiring decisions.”
