MOBILE or IN-OFFICE FINGERPRINTING SERVICE

 

What is Mobile Fingerprinting?

 

Today, mobile fingerprinting has become more important than ever. Mobile fingerprinting allows you convenience and saves you valuable time. Unlike other live scans, this is ink-based where the technician manually captures fingerprints on to the required FD-258 card. This process allows on-the-beat background checks for licensing, permits, employment or investigations and so much more.

Mobile fingerprinting is a valuable service for anyone who might find it difficult to leave their location during their work day. Hence, mobile fingerprinting has become more popular in helping clients have more flexibility and is filling that need. After an appointment is scheduled our technician will arrive on-time to make the process go as quickly and efficiently as possible.
