The National WebCheck system makes the process of collecting civilian fingerprints and utilizing the fingerprints to conduct reliable background checks effective and efficient. Making the process digital has greatly reduced the time it takes to conduct a background check.
Obsolete systems required all background checks to be submitted manually. With National WebCheck this is no longer the case because the software’s submission is automatic. The essential images and corresponding demographic information are transmitted to the FBI and the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification Service (IAFIS).
National WebCheck complies with FBI requirements by capturing and transmitting three separate images, the four fingers on the right hand, the four fingers on the left hand, and then the two thumbs. After the images are transmitted, the system checks the sequence of the prints to ensure they are valid. It then separates the prints into fourteen images. The system again checks to make sure the quality of the prints will be sufficient for future identification purposes and also that they are real.
These are steps that would have been done manually prior to the creation of National WebCheck. Doing it this way reduces the possibility of human error, and requires fewer man-hours than the obsolete systems did.
National WebCheck’s necessary tools for the collection and transmission of the fingerprints are relatively simple. All it takes is a PC with access to the Internet so that the images can be transmitted, a four-digit fingerprint scanner, and a magnetic swipe reader. These devices save time on the front end of the process. Instead of waiting while identification information is manually entered into the computer, users can simply have their driver’s licenses scanned into the system.
Background check results can come back to the National WebCheck workstation from which the information was originally submitted in as little as a few hours over the Internet. The process never takes more than a couple business days.
Mobile Fingerprinting Solutions is proud to offer the most reliable and efficient service to its customers. National WebCheck allows us to do just that. By reducing manual data entry, using the speed of the Internet, and taking advantage of the IAFIS, we can provide the most advanced fingerprinting and background check system there is.
