VeriCORP has partnered with 3M Cogent, a world-wide provider of electronic fingerprint services and technology, and proudly introduces the eGAPS service. The eGAPS service provides a quicker, easier way to complete selected State, Federal and Corporate fingerprint based background checks.
In response to the growth of federal and state legislation requiring mandatory criminal history searches for select positions, 3M Cogent has been selected by the FBI as an authorized Channeling Agency. 3M Cogent is authorized to provide criminal history searches (i.e. fingerprint-based background checks) for non-criminal applicants using the applicants’ own fingerprint records. The capturing of applicant fingerprints is achieved through the use of FBI-certified 3M Cogent LiveScan devices.
Each captured applicant fingerprint record is transmitted to the FBI as a digitized electronic record, in compliance with the Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification (EFTS). Once received by the FBI, applicant fingerprint images are compared against the FBI’s known criminal fingerprint database to determine if any criminal history exists.
No longer do Applicants have to put up with messy ink and the inconvenience of travelling long distances to complete their required fingerprinting. 3M Cogent has partnered with local retail business all across the country to provide high quality, electronic fingerprint services. There are hundreds of 3M Cogent fingerprint locations nationwide; most of which provide fingerprinting with no appointment required.
Registration requires the collection of the Applicant’s demographic information. This may be completed online or in some cases, over the phone via 3M Cogent’s Call Center. Once registered, eGAPS fingerprint locations provides walk-in fingerprint services in cities all across the United States. The 3M Cogent partners that offer eGAPS will administer the fingerprint collection on a FBI certified electronic LiveScan; in a clean and safe business environment. Various payment options are available.
eGAPS provides users a national network of fingerprint locations.
