G2 Data Shows GoodHire Customers Go Live Faster, Achieve ROI Faster

When it comes to searching for and selecting a background check provider, many buyers turn to review sites to learn what actual users say about their satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) with their vendor. One review site, G2, takes user review data a step further to provide estimated time to go live and average time to achieve ROI. 

Understanding the implementation time and average ROI for a new tool or platform is extremely helpful—and when it impacts your company’s time-to-hire, an important KPI, the difference between one vendor over another can make a significant difference.

59% of Customers Get Started with GoodHire in Less Than One Day

In comparison of time to go live across major screening vendors, G2 data shows GoodHire customers are able to implement GoodHire and start running background checks faster than customers using HireRight, Sterling and Checkr. 

According to the implementation data from G2’s Spring Grid Report for Background Check vendors, the average number of months to go live is 2.7 months. Getting started with GoodHire is significantly faster—the majority of customers (59%) report a go live time of less than one day, while 30% say they implemented GoodHire in less than one month.
