BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, April 04, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HireRight Holdings Corporation (NYSE: HRT) ("HireRight"), a leading provider of global background screening services and workforce solutions, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Inquiro Vitae, a background screening provider based in Argentina, allowing more targeted local support for its customers hiring not only in Argentina, but across Latin America.
The acquisition is part of HireRight’s continued investment and growth strategy in Latin America following the launch of its Mexico subsidiary in 2021 and will enable the company to extend its background screening services to local small and medium-sized businesses in the region.
"We are thrilled to expand our footprint into Argentina to help better serve our customers operating throughout Latin America," said Guy Abramo, President and CEO of HireRight. "We understand the significance of local expertise when conducting employment background checks and believe that our local presence in Argentina will help set us apart from other global screening providers and open the door for new business in the region."
HireRight customers screening candidates and employees in Argentina should benefit from faster identity checks, local fulfilment of verifications in Argentina through direct connections to local sources, and commercial vendor-to-vendor screening services. Additionally, with its new local operating entity, HireRight will be able to invoice its customers in local currency – the Argentine Peso – a major benefit for global customers with a presence in Argentina.
"Considering the sustained growth of background check services in Latin America, we are happy to become part of HireRight and strengthen their offerings by incorporating clients, proprietary software, criminal and credit checks, ID validation services, and a local presence to stay closer to our customers’ needs," said Federico Bove, Regional Senior Director of Business Development at Inquiro Vitae.
Inquiro Vitae was founded in 2019 and was formerly part of the credit bureau Fidelitas. Its services include academic verifications, employment background checks, identity verification, legal searches, and continuous monitoring services.
