Cerebrum partners with MeridianLink’s TazWorks to bring identity verification and digital credential wallet to customers

Pittsburgh, Feb. 26 2024 — Cerebrum is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with MeridianLink's TazWorks™, a leading technology platform for independent background screening professionals. This collaboration will integrate Cerebrum's identity verification and digital credential management expertise with TazWorks' robust suite of screening applications, tools, and advanced business intelligence features to enhance operational efficiency and deliver exceptional accuracy.

Cerebrum will integrate its Verified Identity Documentation (vID), a biometrically-secured identity and credential verification technology, into TazWorks, a unified screening technology platform used by numerous consumer reporting agencies (CRAs). With vID enabled, TazWorks software customers will be able to seamlessly incorporate identity data capture and verification into their screening workflows. This integration is vital to the screening industry, enabling cleaner data and more precise, efficient outcomes for candidates, tenants, and volunteers.

The collaboration of Cerebrum's vID technology with TazWorks' screening platform represents a milestone in the evolution of background screening and reflects a shared vision for pioneering solutions that address the escalating risks associated with fraud and incomplete data. Clients will be empowered to set a new baseline for what it means to “know your candidate” with exceptional data integrity and streamlined operations.

Mike Griffith, Vice President of Product Management at MeridianLink said,

“Our partnership with Cerebrum and the integration of vID with our offerings provide customers with a valuable tool to address organizations’ pressing need to authenticate candidate identities and qualifications.”

Sebastian Mellen, CEO of Cerebrum adds,

“Cerebrum is excited to partner with forward-thinking companies like MeridianLink looking to bolster trust and reliability for their clients. vID is poised to enhance TazWorks' offerings, providing a fluid user experience that streamlines screening processes across various sectors, from employment to tenant to volunteer screening.”
