DATE: January 2013 - Origin Replaces Protection Plus and Adds a Whole Lot More
CI launched Origin in Fall of 2010 as "The New Beginning in Background Investigations". Since then virtually all new clients have
started their background investigations with Origin.
Over the last two years we've converted many clients who had been using Protection Plus to Origin. Some clients who were using our
SSN & Address Information inquiry in conjunction with our Multijurisdictional Criminal inquiry have also moved to Origin (Origin contains both of those inquiries and runs all names against the Multijurisdictional Criminal data).
Here’s why you should convert to Origin today:
First off, what is Origin? Origin is a multidimensional inquiry that combines our Multijurisdictional Criminal inquiry with the known
aliases provided from our SSN & Address Information inquiry. With a name, date of birth and SSN, we report the state and the
approximate date that the SSN was issued and then run the SSN through the Social Security Administration’s Death Master File. Next,
we run the SSN trace to obtain a list of alias names, including maiden names. We then use this information to make a final pass through ofour Multijurisdictional Criminal inquiry instant database on the primary name supplied and all aliases revealed in the SSN & Address Information.
Second, why should you choose Origin and leave Protection Plus behind by upgrading? As you can see in the table below, Origin
searches more than twice as many records as Protection Plus. Origin searches more historical data, where Protection Plus is only a seven year search. Origin also includes anti-terrorist data, and most importantly, Origin searches all names against the multijurisdictional data. All for one set price (e.g. there is no per name fee with Origin).
Origin is the best way to start any and all background investigations by validating a subject’s identity and personal identifiers, e.g.
name(s), date of birth, Social Security Number and address(es). Origin reveals Criminal Information on all names associated with the subject and identifies jurisdictions where it would be prudent to do more thorough criminal, sex offender, and other inquiries.
