What’s moving the CV Check share price?
The CV Check share price is on the rise after the company advised that its best-of-breed screening and verification solution is now available to the market. The new product is aimed at providing wholesale services to other large international screening and verification players.
The white label rollout will tick off the company’s strategic objective as previously announced.
Further to the update, CV Check signed United States employment screening specialist, NetForce Global LLC. The agreement will see NetForce become CV Check’s first international wholesale customer.
What did management say?
CV Check CEO, Mr Rod Sherwood, commented on the deal. He said:
In its FY2020 Annual Report, CV1 advised pre-commercialisation had commenced on the strategic project to take its white label technology beyond our current Australia and New Zealand base.
We are pleased to advise that our first major contract under this initiative has now been executed and we welcome NetForce Global as our first inbound international wholesale customer.
White label addressable market
The full-service screening and verification market comprises several thousand firms on a global scale. While most background checks occur within domestic markets, CV Check said that the international mobile workforce is increasing. Thus, companies like NetForce are able to rely on a trusted partner to screen any persons who are seeking employment.
In addition, both CV Check and NetForce are active members of the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA). The international organisation represents the interests of companies offering background screening services and promotes a high level of ethics and performance standards.
Should you invest?
Over the course of the last six months, the CV Check share price has performed strongly. The company’s shares have risen over 114%, trading just below their 52-week high of 18 cents. As more companies continue to return to normal trading following the fallout of COVID-19, employment checks could be expected to surge.
