PR Log - Nov 19, 2012 - Internet startup Instant Checkmate, headquartered in San Diego, California, has recently launched a substantial new feature on its fast-growing criminal background check website—the Instant Checkmate “Criminal Arrest Records Database.”
Instant Checkmate subscribers already enjoy instant access to anyone’s public records. Clients can view both marriage/divorce records and arrest/conviction history, as well as possible relatives and general identifying information. The new Criminal Records Directory is now available to the general public, so individuals browsing the company’s website can retrieve limited public data on just about anybody—without paying for a subscription.
This new feature serves as a sort-of “try before you buy” mini-search, so you can make sure the subject of your curiosity is in the database before you purchase a full background check. Anyone can visit Instant Checkmate’s website and look up individuals located in the U.S. using the criminal records directory for free.
Public Relations specialist Kristen Bright explains the idea behind this new directory: "It’s the logical next step in showing new customers we can provide all the background information they are looking for. With the new Instant Checkmate Public Criminal Records Directory, you can hone and refine your searches until you’ve successfully located all your search targets.”
Bright continues to say that the new feature will be offered for no additional fee: “Think of it as a ‘Yellow Pages’ for background checks,” she says.
The Instant Checkmate Public Criminal Records Directory allows clients to narrow their searches first based their state of residence, then city, and even down to zip code. Age and other relative data are also culled in order to find the correct person before ordering a complete criminal background check.
Bright says that this new feature came about as a response to customers who wanted to perform background checks on people whose full names they didn’t necessarily know. “Sometimes, you need to do a little research in order to find the right person to investigate,” she says. “The Public Criminal Records Directory does just that—it creates a new, linear path for customers to find the right person.”
Instant Checkmate continues to assert itself as the leader in online background checks. The launch of an internally built personal directory only adds to the company’s forward momentum as Instant Checkmate solidifies its place as a leader in the competitive world of Internet startups.
