SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 26, 2012) - Instant Checkmate, the San Diego, California-based Internet startup that provides instant criminal background checks, has rolled out a new public platform for anyone to use. This all-new directory is free to use for anyone visiting the instantcheckmate.com website, whether they are a first-time visitor or a monthly subscriber. Their newly launched Public Criminal Records Directory will provide preliminary searches on potential subjects, so that anyone can locate the right subject before they order a full criminal background check.
According to Instant Checkmate Media Liaison Mike Smith, the initial idea for the Public Criminal Records Directory came about in a company-wide brainstorming session: "When people would visit our website in the past, they had concerns that the subject of their search might not be in our database. This new directory is a way for us to show potential subscribers whether or not a background check can be performed, before they order one."
Features such as the free Public Criminal Records Directory are part of what keep Instant Checkmate a leader in its field. Kristen Bright, Instant Checkmate's Public Relations Specialist, explains that the new Public Criminal Records Directory is a way of reaching out to a wider audience: "Everybody has someone in mind that they've wondered about," she explains. "It's perfectly natural to want to know more about a person's criminal history. But in our society, it's considered impolite to ask them directly. That's where Instant Checkmate comes in. It's a simple, cost effective, and discreet way to look into someone's background."
Smith explains that the new Public Criminal Records Directory is just another way for Instant Checkmate to maintain its status as an industry leader: "With other background check companies, you're sort of flying blind," he says. " We realize that people may not want to take that leap of faith with their searches, and especially with their money. That's why we want our clients to look around before they buy."
In under three years, Instant Checkmate has risen from a small Internet startup to become a leader in the field of criminal background checks, revolutionizing the market and taking the company from a fledgling brand to an industry leader. With the new Public Criminal Records Directory, Instant Checkmate cements its status as a trendsetter in the highly competitive world of Internet startups.
