Second U.S. Patent by iReviewNow LLC Allows Consumers the Ability to Instantly Review Background Reports to Ensure Accuracy and FCRA Compliance Solving Growing Federal Lawsuits
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
iReviewNow LLC, a leader in background screening and consumer compliance
systems and sister company to inventor, Steven C. Millwee of SecurTest,
has obtained its second U.S. patent for a technology that allows
individuals to review their background reports in real-time, ensure the
accuracy of the reports, instantly file disputes securely online, and
explain adverse or negative information. This second patent, 8,646,101,
expands protections to help individuals increase their chances of
employment and government clearances despite having a less than perfect
background. Engaging the subject by these two patents eliminates errors
and inaccurate information, as it creates unprecedented transparency.
"Our cloud-based solution, unique to iReviewNow.com, automatically
delivers reports contemporaneously to consumers and users alike, while
providing the subject of the investigation ample time to identify any
misinformation, providing them the opportunity to self-Accuratize their
report and become part of the screening process. This provides critical
evidence of compliance to legal mandates surrounding consumer reporting,
such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Equal Employment Opportunity,"
said Steven C. Millwee, CPP, President and CEO of iReviewNow and the
Employers improve employee and aplicant relationships by creating a
transparent system through iReviewNow. "Applicants often start as
customers. Thus, treating consumers fairly through every stage of the
screening process makes business sense in a litigious world that has
many on edge as to what employers and others are uncovering to make
hiring, business or government access decisions," said Raymond Humphrey,
Chairman of SecurTest.
"The expansion of iReviewNow's technology substantially increases the
accuracy in real-life scenarios that touch all our lives, as accuracy
and fairness are the touch points in determining whether you have a
chance of a new job or receive a government clearance. These patents
take away the mystery surrounding background and credit checks," said
Kay Stephenson, the CEO of Datamaxx Group, the premier provider of
advanced communications, data access, information sharing, enterprise
intelligence, and access control solutions to the law enforcement,
criminal justice, public safety, and security.
The Ninth Circuit of the US Court of Appeals reversed a decision opening
the floodgates against users and background screening providers that
report inaccurate information without allowing instant dispute
resolution by the impacted individual. (Opinion: http://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/opinions/2014/02/04/11-56843.pdf.)
The iReviewNow patents mitigate such risks, while treating consumers the
way everyone wants to be treated.
