Orange Tree Employment Screening, a leader in the global background screening industry, is announcing the acquisition of Vericon.

Based in Georgia, Vericon has earned the trust of its clients by providing custom solutions and proactive, personal service. Vericon customers will continue to receive the great service and personal client care they deserve. They will also benefit from Orange Tree’s proprietary technology platform. Fully cloud-enabled, Orange Tree’s architecture has been designed to meet the needs of its clients today and to scale with their growth requirements of tomorrow.

This acquisition aligns well with Orange Tree’s client-centric approach to business. “Vericon is a firm that has served the background screening industry since 1988 providing excellent customer care. We are excited to blend the unique strengths of both our companies and increase value for our customers” said Renee Ernste, CEO of Orange Tree.

Orange Tree was recently acquired by Tonka Bay Equity Partners. Tonka Bay’s investment in Orange Tree has accelerated the company’s ability to grow and deliver even more for its customers. “Clients want fast turnaround times, easy-to-use technology, and responsive customer service,” Ernste said. “We are rolling out technology to enhance our clients’ and their candidates’ experience.”  Among other things, Orange Tree has delivered new ATS integrations, reporting dashboards, and usability features to its mobile candidate portal.
