"We were looking for a solution to address the delays to our recruitment process because of DBS checks. When we first saw the Authentiquest demonstration we were hopeful that it would address our issue and, with the expert assistance of the Terraquest team, we were able to bespoke the system to cater for our unique circumstances. We are very happy to say that the turnaround times for the majority of our DBS checks is significantly reduced and they no longer hold up the recruitment of our new employees."
