Jan 06, 2010, 19:49 ET from Innovative Enterprises, Inc.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Enterprises, Inc., a strategic partner to the background screening industry and expert provider of court research information products, smart data solutions and ancillary services, today announced the release of the National Criminal Information Scan(TM), the first in its rapidly-emerging suite of Innovative Data Solutions(TM) services designed specifically for background screening professionals.

NCIS(TM) provides a powerful, high speed, multi-jurisdictional examination of an increasingly complex array of sources spanning court records, incarceration data, prison and inmate populations, probation and parolee supervision and release information, records of arrests and wants and warrants. Additionally, NCIS(TM) incorporates Innovative's proprietary OffenderScan(TM) sex offender screening and Sentinel(TM) terrorist watch list tools.

Using unique similarity and probability scoring methodologies, NCIS(TM) easily overcomes obstacles such as misspellings and punctuation, transposition and outright applicant fraud, delivering enhanced clarity and increased precision. The end result for the professional screener is more relevant matches and fewer false positives, saving time and valuable staff resources.

"We're excited to launch NCIS(TM) as the cornerstone offering in our emerging Innovative Data Solutions(TM) suite of services," said William J. Bollinger, Innovative's Executive Vice President. "We're committed to bringing our industry partners both new and unique tools that will help them to differentiate themselves as well as enhanced versions of the staple services that screeners have become accustomed to using in their businesses."

"All too often I hear the phrase, 'data is data' within industry circles," added Clifford J. Williams, Innovative's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "Our team understands public records and the judicial system. We know how, when and where records are filed, and we are intimately familiar with the various paths to justice. Through NCIS(TM) we share our knowledge and experience with our industry partners and demonstrate the significant value that comes from infusing this expertise into a product that is built from the ground up."

National Criminal Information Scan(TM) is currently available through direct XML integration and through select industry software provider partners and will be available through additional channels in the near future.
