Acquisition of Crime Finders, Inc. (CFi) Expands Appriss’ Data Capabilities for Background Screening and Enterprise Risk Markets

Appriss, a leading provider of Data Analytics solutions, announced today the acquisition of Crime Finders, Inc. (CFi), a top provider of court research services for the background screening industry.

Established in 1999, CFi offers county-level felony and misdemeanor criminal records research for all counties in California, Nevada, Hawaii and Illinois. CFi’s researchers investigate individual cases using online tools or the county courthouse of a requested jurisdiction.

“Appriss has quickly become a major data supplier in the background screening industry,” said Jim Daxner, Chief Marketing and Product Officer at HireRight. “The CFi acquisition adds to their data assets, enabling Appriss to uniquely deliver a truly continuous monitoring solution to CRAs.”

Appriss’ acquisition of CFi, combined with the acquisition of HygenicsData (HDI) in July, positions Appriss as a significant player within the data supplier landscape and solidifies its commitment to the background screening market.

“Appriss is transforming the background screening industry by enabling a best-of-breed post hire suite of products,” said Brian Matthews, Appriss Sr. Vice President of Data Products. “The addition of CFi and HDI data assets enables us to deliver a complete solution for the screening industry, moving beyond a simple alert product to a comprehensive continuous employee monitoring solution, which includes criminal record verification, court case updates and adjudication services.”

District Capital Partners acted as the buyside advisor to Appriss.
