Montreal

Iscopia, a leading provider of online recruitment and applicant qualification solutions, and Aurico Reports, a national and international leader in the field of background screening, today announced the signing of a multi-year agreement whereby each company will increase service alternatives for customers by integrating their offerings to deliver added value and efficiency. Specifically, Iscopia will make available Aurico Reports’ background screening services to customers and partners of The Hiring Kit™, Iscopia’s online hiring solution for small and medium-sized businesses, while Aurico Reports will provide access to The Hiring Kit for users of its background screening services.

Leveraging Iscopia’s award-winning AQS™ platform, The Hiring Kit is a complete, online solution created to meet the specific hiring requirements of SMBs. The Hiring Kit is based on a user-friendly 3-step process for defining an open job position, attracting candidates, and then qualifying them. Each of the dozens of job profiles included with The Hiring Kit includes a customizable, pre-built job description; links to relevant job boards; job-specific online tests and questionnaires; candidate ranking reports; interview guides; and online reference checks. Aurico Reports’ background screening services supplement the core Hiring Kit offering and will be made available alongside psychometric testing as an optional paid service to be used to further validate candidates before a formal job offer is made.

“We are pleased to offer Aurico Report’s background screening services to our Hiring Kit customers in the US and Canada,” said François Plamondon, President and CEO of Iscopia. He added, “The addition of their offering builds on our philosophy of providing small and medium-sized businesses with a one-stop shop for all of their hiring needs.”

“Our suite of background screening solutions help to reduce the risk of hiring, an important consideration for small and medium-sized businesses, where the margin for error is small,” declared Ben Goldberg, Vice President of Aurico Reports Inc. He added, “By taking advantage of our background screening offering when using Iscopia’s Hiring Kit solution, small and medium-sized business owners can be sure that the candidates they attract are as good as they appear or represent themselves before hiring them.”
