New York, NY and Stow, OH, May 30, 2014 – SterlingBackcheck, the world’s most trusted background screening company, Aspen Grove Solutions and the National Association of Mortgage Field Services (NAMFS) are pleased to announce the addition of SterlingBackcheck to the industrywide background screening solution Aspen iRecord™. NAMFS is the industry trade association that promotes education, industry standards, political awareness, and professional development within the Mortgage Field Service Industry. NAMFS members and other contractors are increasingly required by major lending institutions, national property preservation companies, law firms and regulatory agencies to provide a background check as part of their professional profile. In addition, a new background check is required each time they engage with a new organization, creating a burden of multiple background checks on contractors who work with many organizations. The partnership between Aspen Grove Solutions, NAMFS and SterlingBackcheck allows Mortgage Field Servicers to use and re-use a single annual background check, eliminating the needless cost and wasted time of repeated background checks for multiple clients while still meeting the highest consumer protection standards. 
Said Eric Miller, Executive Director of NAMFS, “Our goal is to assist our NAMFS members meet the increasing regulatory requirements and costs associated with background screening and we are excited about SterlingBackcheck’s participation. Continue Reading
