This process involves authenticating documents such as certifications, licenses, training, and more. Primary source verification is considered the most reliable and accurate identification process, as it is a standardized solution that confirms the license or certification is active and appropriate according to the issuing organizations standards. Automating this process increases accuracy and reliability in a consistent manner while mitigating errors and saving time. How Automated Primary Source Verification WorksAutomated primary source verification is a technology-driven process in which a system automatically validates an employees licenses and certifications or extends the validation when the employees license or certification nears expiration. A secure, technology-driven platform searches for the employees name and other information supplied by the employer. An automated system will search for this information on databases, local and state agencies, and other industry credentials. In most cases, the system will be able to validate the license or certification by itself; if additional information or documents are required, the system will inform the employers before the license or certification expires. Benefits of Automated Primary Source VerificationThe use of automated primary source verification for occupational licenses offers several key advantages. By automating the process of verifying credentials, employers can be sure that their employees meet legal requirements and that their licenses and certifications are up to date and active.
