LONDON, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aperion Screening Limited, which was acquired by Sterling Infosystems, Inc. last July, has announced that it is changing its name to Sterling Infosystems Limited.
Over the six months following the acquisition, Aperion and Sterling, a leading provider of employment background screening services, have worked diligently to integrate the businesses. The objective of the transaction, and now the name change, is part of a long term strategy to provide clients with a truly global and integrated screening solution, which will be best in class.
The first step in this transition will be the formal changing of the Aperion Screening Limited name to Sterling Infosystems Limited which occurred on Tuesday 8th March 2011. On that day, Aperion Screening began to implement the global adoption of the Sterling Infosystems brand.
"This name change in the UK allows us to expand the global Sterling Infosystems brand and introduce our industry- leading products, services and technology to new markets," said Anton Watson, Sales Director, EMEA.
Sterling Infosystems Limited in the UK will continue to provide the same high level of service to clients and the name change will not impact any screening processes.
