Verified income and employment data are now instantly available to Yardi clients using its ScreeningWorks Pro resident screening solution
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Feb. 19, 2019 — Yardi® now offers instant income and employment verification via The Work Number® from Equifax® as part of ScreeningWorks® Pro, a comprehensive resident screening solution that also includes credit reports, rental history and other publicly reportable civil or criminal records.
Equifax manages the nation’s largest centralized repository of verified income and employment information powered by The Work Number, a proprietary database containing more than 350 million payroll records. Verified compensation documents can be instantly obtained online.
Property managers using ScreeningWorks Pro can now leverage The Work Number to eliminate reliance on applicant-provided pay stubs and W-2s. The Work Number delivers a concise consumer report that provides current employment status and payroll income on the spot.
“We are very excited to join forces with Yardi to offer instant verifications to the rental community utilizing The Work Number database,” said Tom Ciulla, vice president of enterprise alliances at Equifax. “Available for the first time in rental markets, these solutions will not only help speed up the application process, but greatly assist the consumer and property manager with each transaction.”
“Without online access to verified income data, property managers could spend hours tracking down current and legitimate pay stubs. The Work Number is a great service that helps ScreeningWorks Pro clients reduce fraud and speed up the approval of qualified applicants,” said Patrick Hennessey, vice president of resident screening for Yardi.
