firm American Management Systems (AMS) and partner DAC Services
have developed an electronic identity authentication system for
the transportation industry to be used during pre-employment screening
DAC, a provider
of employment screening, will provide AMS's electronic identity
authentication service, Identicate, in conjunction with its background
and pre-employment screening data.
products will authenticate identity using both credit bureau-derived
questions as well as industry-specific information from DAC's
proprietary databases, the companies said. The new service will
allow transportation companies to pre-screen applicants and employees,
detect fraud, and verify an applicant's identity.
VA-based AMS added that Identicate is an Internet-based service
that analyzes the authenticity of applicants' responses to personal
questions that include home address, Social Security number, and
telephone numbers. The sources of Identicate's data are providers
of fraud-prevention and consumer data and services, AMS said.
