About Us

How did we get here?

Two decades ago, before FIRST, VERIFY came into existence, our founders developed a proprietary database as a solution for a client seeking to qualify service providers by size, location, and safe work history.

Over the years, that database evolved into a critical tool for expediting the flow of information among the client’s employees that were separated by different departments and facilities. It ensured that hundreds of outside contractors met corporate standards for safety and other criteria. Contractor selection and access to corporate property could finally occur without the bottlenecks associated with case-by-case checking and authorization.

Word of the success of this custom system spread, and our founders began developing similar databases for clients in other industries. Today, thousands of contractors and suppliers are prequalified every year to work at hundreds of facilities and construction sites around the country through FIRST, VERIFY. We are on the third generation of this well-tested, cutting-edge service, with expanded features to provide the same reliable and secure third-party verification capabilities for all kinds of vendors. We provide you with a continually expanding universe of potential vendors to ensure that you’ll have options when a spike demand hits or when you expand into new markets. Or if you prefer a private database, we can create that, too. If your current system involves auditing vendor information—whether remote audits or on-site audits—FIRST, VERIFY can provide this service, as well.

FIRST, VERIFY is here to simplify your life and help you make the best use of your valuable time. For more information, complete the contact form on this page or call (800) 651-7180.
