HireRight is a background check service that can be integrated with the Fountain application process.


Getting Started with HireRight

  1. Existing HireRight clients will need to execute a Modification of Services (MOD) with HireRight. Clients can request the integration and MOD from their HireRight Account Manager, or if a client does not have a dedicated Account Manager they can contact the HireRight Client Engagement Team at
  2. New sales customers to HireRight will work with their HireRight Sales Executive to include the integration with their scope of services.
  3. Once the necessary HireRight paperwork is executed by the client, a request for a HireRight Technical Consultant (TC) will be submitted by the Hire Right Account Manager Client Engagement Team. Assignment of a TC will be made 8-10 business days from the date of the request. New customers to HireRight will need to have their Account created in HireRight before a TC will be assigned.
  4. The TC will perform the following functions:

    1. Engage with the client and/or Fountain Implementation Manager/CSM to start the integration project.

    2. Configure the integration profile on the HireRight side.

    3. Provide the API Key and Integration Settings Guide.

    4. Assist with questions for configuring the integration on the Fountain side.

    5. Perform testing with the client once the HireRight TC has configured the integration profile in HireRight and has provided the API Key, the integration should be able to be configured and connectivity established with HireRight in less than 1 hour. 

  5. The total length of an integration project from the time of TC assignment to go-live readiness will vary by customer depending on the customer's readiness, account complexity and amount of testing the client requires.
