New IntelliCorp Website Offers Enhanced Search Capability, More Functionality and Easier Access to Public Records

SOLON, OHIO, Sept. 26, 2005 — IntelliCorp Records, Inc., has significantly increased the functionality available through its website to provide more sophisticated search capability, more user options and easier access to more online criminal, driving and other public-records information. These enhancements will enable employers and others to conduct even more comprehensive background checks on prospective employees and screen potential volunteers.

The redesigned website (www.intellicorp.net) provides secure online transactions, an improved navigation capability to easily access publicly available information and a customizable menu for user-defined search criteria. The new website enables users to manage their accounts more efficiently with an advanced administration area.

The site's most significant new feature is an enhanced and integrated Results Center to store all search results in a single, easy-to-use location. Users can archive results at this location indefinitely.

IntelliSearch is a sophisticated tool that incorporates a "recommendation engine" — an industry first for background searches — to provide the most thorough, accurate and cost-effective investigation. By dynamically evaluating data against a complex set of criteria and the client's needs, IntelliCorp recommends the best combination of instant database results and single-county court research.

With its built-in "fuzzy name logic" capability and use of geographic coverage, address history, Social Security numbers and dates of birth to refine the search, IntelliSearch finds candidates who attempt to conceal their backgrounds and returns the best set of results for those individuals.

The new website also features:

  • an improved, user-friendly subject entry page with a new Search Navigator function to process IntelliSearch requests. Search Navigator allows users to go back and edit request contents on previous pages.
  • an intuitive and easy-to-use navigation bar with drop-down menu, requiring fewer mouse clicks to access the most-used pages and arranged in the exact sequence a user would expect them to be in.
  • report building through the state menu that eliminates the need to run multiple searches on the same individual and allows the user to create an integrated report with all search results, thus saving time and effort.
