Submitting application forms though our bespoke online system is a proven cost effective and time saving solution, compared to the old paper based forms.
With less manual administration carried out by the Umbrella Body, administration fees can be negotiated and are generally considerably less than the administration fees for paper based application forms.
Eliminating the postage times for the paper based applications, the online system provides a faster turnaround time. The fastest ever completion of an enhanced disclosure was just 61 minutes; from the submission of the application to the issue of the disclosure. But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself!
How our System Works
When designing our bespoke system, the ease of use was at the forefront of our mind. The application forms are straightforward and take about 10 minutes to complete. If an applicant struggles to use our form, or has a general question about the application process, they can call us on 0845 643 1145 and a member of our processing team will provide friendly, confidential support to ensure the applicant has the best experience possible.
Here’s a quick overview at how simple our online system is from the applicant’s perspective:
- The applicant logs on to our website here: www.onlinecrbcheck.co.uk
- They enter their User ID (as issued by their employer) in the ‘User ID’ field in the ‘Create New Application’ section of the website, and then create a password (at least 8 characters in length). Once they have confirmed their password, they click on the ‘Create Application‘ button and complete their application. The applicant does not need to upload any documents, they just enter in their details manually.
- Once the applicant has completed their application, an email is generated and instantly sent to your nominated administrator asking them to ID check the applicant’s identity. Your ID checker simply clicks on the link in the email and is presented with the ID checking page, at which point they tick the relevant boxes and submit the application.
- From the moment the ID checking page is submitted, we receive the application instantly and submit it to the Disclosure & Barring Service within 1 hour of receiving it.
When the DBS and local police force(s) have completed their searches, the result is automatically uploaded directly into our system and within 1 hour an electronic copy is sent to your nominated Disclosure Manager and the paper certificate is sent in the post by the DBS directly to the applicants’ current home address.
Please note: for Basic Disclosures the applicant can nominate an alternative address to send the certificate to.
We understand that there is a lot of information to take in when trying to decide who to use to process your criminal record checks. We also understand that some people would rather talk to somebody than read off a computer screen! If you would like a friendly, no obligation chat to discuss which option is right for you, then we encourage you to call us on 0845 643 1145. Please note that calls are charged at your local rate.
