“Our company have been using VSC for a number of years, the friendly and professional service we consistently receive from them is excellent. The service they provide is quick, efficient and the screening checks are tailored to our specific needs, which is exactly what our company was looking for to cover our BS7858 security vetting requirements. VSC provide a really personal service, for example, if things at first appearance doesn’t seem right they’ll call and ask for additional information and evidence rather than take the easy option of simply “failing”, the vetting, which was our experience of previous companies. Their completed screening reports are easy to read and well presented. We would have no hesitation in recommending VSC to other companies.”

I’ve used CheckBack International for security screening on behalf of my clients for nearly a year. I can’t even begin to explain how much simpler the whole process is now, in comparison to doing this in-house. I’ve had the privilege of dealing with Joey personally on several occasions, as well as the VERY competent Nicola Beels in the UK office. My clients in the security industry are safe in the knowledge that they are fully compliant with standards, through the use of CheckBack. I’m happy to recommend Joey and his team at CheckBack.
