IDfy, a people information company, has been recognised as the "Best Background Screening Service Provider" at the Human Resources Vendors Awards, 2016 organised as a part of the recently concluded 24th edition of the World HRD Congress held in Mumbai.
The Awards recognise the best technical vendors in various categories such as background verification, psychometric training, and skills development. Vendors in this category must have demonstrable ability to deploy state-of-the-art technology to enable HR teams at companies to run talent acquisition, interviews, background verification, payroll, and other HR activities.
IDfy has pioneered the use of technology in background verification to make this necessary but onerous process automated, transparent, and simple while adding scalability and reducing fraud. They have a cloud-based platform to help screen candidate information such as education, skillset, past experience, salary structure, tax and credit history, and social aspects including criminal records. With the shortest turn-around time in the industry, IDfy helps identify the right talent for the right job. The services offered are supplemented with real-time access to reports, statistics, and analytical tools which further add to the ease of hiring for clients. IDfy's current client list includes players from industries like E-commerce, ITES, App-based firms and so on.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Wriju Ray, Chief Operating Officer, IDfy said, "Background verification as a concept is not new. These services have been fairly manual. IDfy is challenging the status quo by using technology and automation in this space. In a short span of time IDfy has been able to win many large customers by giving them speed, scale, and better quality. The award represents a coming of age - a tectonic shift of sorts where the use of technology becomes the norm rather than the exception".
The award was presented by Dr. R.L. Bhatia, a celebrated Human Resources professional and pioneer of many best practices in the industry, in a glittering ceremony.
