With satisfactory completion of the pilot program, Xref and Verify have indicated they intend to enter into a longer-term integration agreement.
The final agreement would see the ASX-listed Xref (ASX:XF1) platform, which automates the candidate process for employers, branded “Powered by Xref” and integrated with the Verify platform, enabling Verify clients to take candidate references through Xref.
Verify’s services will also be accessible from the Xref platform.
Xref executive director and chief technology, Tim Griffiths, said Xref’s open platform and flexible architecture would enable the company to integrate with an extensive range of systems, and enable Verify’s clients to access Xref's services.
“Our programme is divided into two phases and the first phase, the integration of Xref into Verify’s platform, is already complete. As the second phase continues, Xref clients will be able to access Verify’s and Veda’s range of checks from within the Xref platform.”
Xref chief executive and executive director, Lee-Martin Seymour, said Xref is focused on providing “a seamless workflow in the recruitment process, and this alliance allows the end-to-end checking of candidates across all aspects of the recruitment process”.
