The Nature Of How We Work Is Changing

While part-time jobs and side hustles bring freedom, they also bring risk. Be well equipped to screen applicants in this ever-growing, modern economy.

Care Providers

People rely on your platform every day to find care providers for their children, family members, and pets. Companies turn to Sterling to deliver background checks to their users to help them screen and safely hire care providers.

Ride Share

For consumers, ride sharing is about getting to Point B safely and enjoying the ride. Our API can help you on board and screen drivers faster within your platform to ensure you are keeping up with demand and keeping your community safe.

Talent Market Places

In a modern, networked, and knowledge-based business environment, skills and reputation generate value. Delivering background checks in your application via Sterling’s API ensures you provide your customers with candidates that have been vetted and are ready for hire.

Education Providers

To maintain the integrity of your learning community, all instructors and tutors need to verify their identity and qualifications. With the Sterling API, you can collect information, run a check, and confirm identity and credentials for new instructors before accepting them on your platform.

Hospitality Share Apps

House sharing and apartment sharing provides travelers with a home away from home, and ensuring they are safe is a key part of growing your community. From sign up to approval, Sterling can help automate the screening and onboarding of community members to help ensure your community can grow quickly and safely.

Food Delivery

In addition to delivering food on time – you need your drivers to be able to follow the rules of the road and ensure your customers are safe. With the Sterling API, you can add background checks to your platform to help drivers meet your standards for safety and keep your community from risk.

On Demand Services

The On Demand economy is revolutionising consumer behavior – whether customers want an on demand landscaper, doctor, stylist, masseuse, or another type of service provider trust, safety, and professionalism are essential. Sterling’s API can help you to fulfill consumer demand and ensure you are onboarding service providers with as little friction as possible while keeping bad actors out of your community.
