Client Testimonials

  • "Our company has been using NAPS for our background screening since December of 1998. When submitting a background check request, we are confident NAPS will complete it quickly and accurately. NAPS also keeps us informed of changes to laws affecting the background screening process to ensure we remain compliant with our practices. It is a pleasure to work with such a friendly and knowledgeable group of people."

    Carol Statter Employment Services Manager
  • "Our company has used NAPS services for over ten years and we have been extremely pleased with the customer service, quality of reporting and rates. Sam Ciulla and the other employees at NAPS continue to provide me with the safety and security knowing we have thoroughly investigated applicants we consider for hire."

    Trish White Corporate Human Resources Manager
  • “With more than 30 years of experience in human resources, I feel qualified to know what to look for in a background screening company. What I have learned over the years is that most reputable background screening companies, excluding online scams or those used for "entertainment" purposes, essentially operate the same. They all use essentially the same databases and resources to compile their reports.  The differentiating factor between these companies is their customer service.  Over 20 years ago, I was introduced to NAPS as being a first-class background screening company.  Over the years I have found them to continually live up to this billing.  NAPS brings a highly developed team of specialists, laser focused on quality customer service. NAPS not only represents the best in industry standards but also is committed to protecting our good name. I can attest to their resolve to provide everything I am looking for in a background screening firm. I highly recommend this company to anyone committed to providing a safe and secure working environment.” 

    Jack Trimm Senior Director, Human Resources
  • “With 15 years of experience in law enforcement, I have worked many cases where an employee has caused major problems for management. So when I started my own business, I knew the screening of applicants would greatly reduce the opportunity for such problems.  I found NAPS to be the real deal.  Online background checks are a dime a dozen and fail to provide accurate data.  Looking at the process of NAPS, I knew the data provided was accurate and much more comprehensive.”

    John L. Kessler Chief Executive Officer / Community Response Systems, LLC
  • "I would like to highly recommend using Sam Ciulla and his team at NAPS for any background and drug screen reporting. ADEX Medical Staffing has utilized NAPS for 7 years and we have always been pleased with the exemplary customer service they have provided. The thoroughness of the job that NAPS performs assures us that we are always doing the best possible due diligence on our candidates as possible."  

    Jim Shoemaker ADEX Medical Staffing | R.N., Chief Clinical Officer

Welcome to our world!  NAPS stands for National Application Processing & Screening Inc. We are located in Birmingham, Alabama but have the capacity to run background checks in all 50 states. NAPS has been providing employment and tenant background screening services since 1997. We combine automated screening services with old-fashioned customer service. At NAPS Background Checks, we work directly with each customer to assess their needs while providing expert advice and industry knowledge.  Our customer is always in control. We simply assist in the development of a quality screening program and then get to work protecting your good name.


Our integrated software platform has Continuous Monitoring with fail safe redundancies via multiple independent servers, Best Practices, Manageable Permissions, Secure Data Encryption, and Multi-Factor Authentication that requires every user and applicant to prove their identity beyond that of just a password and username, proving an extra level of protection.

Applicant Tracking Systems:

NAPS offers a secure, Applicant Tracking System (ATS) that streamlines the application process by providing a simple, powerful and customized application form or background screening questionnaire. NAPS Background Checks’ online ATS System is:

  • Responsive: Allows applicants to apply at any time, from anywhere, on any device.
  • Brandable: Brand your own forms with your own logos and custom domains.
  • Fast: View, Process, and Print applications in real-time.
  • Automated: Collect personal identifiers directly from the applicant.
  • Compliant: Reduces exposure to discrimination lawsuits and identity theft.
  • Customizable: We can edit applications to your preferences.

What else can you do?

  • Save labor, time, and postage
  • Send a highly secure unique email link to only one applicant (Pro-Series version allows an embedded link to job applications be placed on your website)
  • Securely connect from anywhere an internet connection is available
  • Allow applicants to complete secure online applications or consent forms.
  • Allow applicants to attach any documents, such as a resume or pay stubs, directly to the application form
  • Configure settings to receive automated email notices that completed applications are available to view, print, and/or auto dispatch for background check
  • View the background check results and a side-by-side comparison of your hiring requirements at the same time.
  • Send FCRA adverse action notices and disclosures using our Report Decision Tool, while keeping a “Client Notes” record of your reason for a decline.

Advanced XML Integration Capabilities:

NAPS Background Checks has the ability to integrate with numerous HRIS, recruiting, and applicant tracking systems to seamlessly transmit and receive background checks.

This capability enables NAPS to streamline the hiring process that tracking systems offer to employers and landlords. Integration improves turnaround, lowers costs, increases data security, and reduces human error, allowing for a healthier bottom line.

Offering XML (eXtensible Markup Language) background check software, as well as employee screening software, criminal background check software and tenant screening software, NAPS has everything our clients want and need in a fully developed background screening service.

DOT Integrations: Using our customized integration platform, when a driver completes your application online, we can incorporate portions of their application data into our system and begin the background check upon arrival. This shortens the time it takes to complete the application and decreases the turnaround time for background research. Additionally, the customized, highly-flexible automation workflow adds efficiency to application processing (e.g. workflow, document processing, status reporting, etc.), improving speed, and significantly reducing human error. Finally, we have automated the process that emails digital FCRA adverse action letters to applicants when a consumer report, either in whole or in part, causes their application to be declined.

At NAPS Background Checks, we custom tailor the screening process to your needs.
