Chequed.com Powers Automated Reference Checking From Anywhere With Mobile Optimization

Company Offers Mobile-Enabled, Automated Reference Checking Technology Across All Major Mobile Devices

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY--(Marketwire - Oct 8, 2012) -  Chequed.com, Inc., an online reference checking and pre-employment testing provider, today announced details of its new mobile-optimized reference-checking platform. Making its cloud-based reference checking system, ChequedReference™, available on all iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, Windows Mobile™ and Palm®-enabled devices, the company further enhances the way job references share feedback about candidates and enables employers to review the results of their pre-employment reference checking from anywhere.

With more than 70 percent of workers having some level of mobility with their jobs in 2011, and sales for tablets and smartphones rapidly increasing, mobility is increasingly important for employers. Additionally, studies find that use of mobile email has increased annually by 36 percent, while the use of traditional web-based email continues to decline. Recognizing the value of delivering a fully mobile-optimized reference checking platform, Chequed.com offers an easy way for references to complete candidates' reference assessments when and where it is most convenient.

When employers use ChequedReference, they benefit from a highly effective pre-employment reference checking system backed by behavioral science that leads to better candidate selection. A candidate simply enters the contact information of their previous employers, and these references receive an email asking them to complete the reference assessment. With its new mobile-optimized capability, the company makes it even easier for references to complete their assessments, as they can do so right from their phones or tablets, anywhere and at any time. Additionally, employers can then view the results, which include an overall score of the candidate's job fit, an executive summary and interview questions, from their mobile devices as well.

Greg Moran, chairman and president of Chequed.com, commented, "One of Chequed.com's main goals is to reduce the time it takes employers to check references in order to more quickly engage the right candidates and make better informed hiring decisions. Accessing our reference checking technology through their mobile devices, employers are untethered and experience an even more convenient way to collect the critical information they need when considering candidates. Staying in lockstep with the current state of mobile technology, we are proud to offer Chequed.com's mobile capabilities on all major mobile brands."

Chequed.com will be exhibiting its solutions in Booth no. 670 at the 15th Annual HR Technology Conference, October 8 - 10, 2012 in Chicago. More information about ChequedReference™ can be accessed at: www.chequed.com.

About Chequed.com
References are a joke. Every company requests them, every candidate provides them, but no one checks them. Why? Because old-fashioned reference checks are phone-based, time-consuming and obsolete. Chequed.com makes reference checks relevant with an automated reference-checking solution built on assessment-based logic. As an add-on for an even greater level in hiring accuracy, Chequed.com delivers the same assessment-based screening logic in ChequedFit™, a high-volume early stage pre-employment test to rapidly weed out low potential and identify high potential candidates.
