ClearStar acquires SingleSource Services Corporation
The acquisition is in line with the company’s stated strategy of growing its direct sales. SingleSource provides background screening services directly to its customer base, which consists primarily of faith-based organisations and retail franchisees. SingleSource provides approximately 725,000 background checks per year, which are generally paid for at the time of the request. These types of organisations and companies have a large turnover of staff and helpers and are usually required to conduct background screening on all new employees. The combined business – utilising ClearStar’s technology platform and growing sales team – will have a wider retail offering reach and will be well-positioned to target these opportunities.
In addition, Don Dymer, the founder and owner of SingleSource, has entered into a consulting agreement with the Company to assist with the integration process for a period of 12 months.
Dymer, commented, “We are delighted to have joined forces with ClearStar. We share their vision of becoming a leading and trusted provider of background check services that furnish employers with reliable decision-making information. We want to provide employers of all sizes across the globe with intuitive systems, cutting-edge tools, and comprehensive reports that they can use to affirm their decision to confidently welcome individuals to their team. We look forward to building our joint business at this exciting time for the industry.”
