PESCHECK is an international screening company that developed its own background checking software. Their solution is designed under strict data privacy principles, and provides digital, fast, and automated employee and candidate background checking solutions for any type of business worldwide. As of last June 2022, the integration of Web-IQ was made available to all users of PESCHECK to bring screenings to the next level and deliver high quality and efficient screenings.

Now available for all PESCHECK users

With the addition of Web-IQ's IRIS, customers can now, in addition to the already implemented 800+ international PEP, Sanction, and risk databases, find out if candidates appear negatively in online searches.

Potential red flags are looked for in various languages and in millions of online public webpages. Using advanced data analytics, IRIS filters out the most of the irrelevant pages and false positives in order to provide specific and relevant data, thereby substantially improving the screening process and delivering a quick and complete background check.

"By integrating the Web-IQ OSINT technology into our system, we are performing this background check at lightning speed, which offers unique advantages for both organisations and candidates. Instead of 15 minutes manual searching on the internet, this check performs it in under 1 minute", says Serhat Elban, CEO of PESCHECK.

“Our clients are relieved by not having to search manually through dozens of webpages from Google, Bing, or Yandex in different languages. They now immediately know where they stand and receive indicators that may affect the integrity of the candidate. Web-IQ ensures that it can perform fast, reliable, and privacy-compliant screenings at a level that is being used by the most prestigious law enforcement agencies in the world."
