Product Offerings

ShareAble by TransUnion keeps its offerings tied to its core purpose: to bring corporate level new hire screening to busy small business owners. 

There are several ways ShareAble accomplishes this goal. It exists entirely online, so the client costs are kept low and the screening process proceeds as quickly as your WiFi connection allows. And ShareAble keeps your screening process compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA, as well as other important laws. Information tracked by consumer reporting agencies is regulated and protected by these acts, including who can access it for screenings for jobs applications and rental applications. 

And ShareAble’s pay-per-use model means you aren’t spending money on an expensive membership or subscription service that you may only use a few times a year. Even as your business grows, ShareAble’s model is still affordable if you need more frequent service.

The following reports are available as part of ShareAble by TransUnion’s bundled screenings:

Background Checks

An applicant may have all the right skills for a certain position, but you want to know who you’re hiring too. That’s why background checks are a vital part of new hire screenings. 

ShareAble for Hires provides an especially broad background report. It scans over 370 criminal records and information from several federal organizations and criminal databases like the National Sex Offender Public Registry and the U.S. Customs and Border Protections.

Unlike some other online criminal checks, results are typically delivered within minutes. Using cutting edge algorithms, ShareAble ensures accuracy and reduces the risk of an applicant being accidentally matched with someone else’s background history. You can also look into your potential future employee’s background knowing you’re fully compliant — all shareable criminal background reports are consumer reports regulated by the FCRA.

Identity Checks

Even with decreased privacy and mass data storage and harvesting in the Internet age, it's still surprisingly easy to obscure your identity or misrepresent yourself using someone else’s information. ShareAble makes light work of identity verification for busy small business owners like yourself. 

When you send the invite to screening to a prospective hire, they are prompted to self-report their name, address, social security number and date of birth. ShareAble runs this information against its expansive databases, providing you with a clear Identity Check report within minutes. 

Not only will it tell you if your applicant is who they say they are, it can also indicate if they’ve ever said they were someone they weren’t before. The report can even tell you if the applicant has been a victim of fraud themselves, which could skew their background and credit checks. 

An identity report from TransUnion is not adverse actionable, meaning you can’t use the information in your decision to deny an applicant. These safeguards and more keep you compliant with the GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act), which mandates that certain institutions must explain and be held accountable for how they protect private consumer information, including how they share it with other institutions. 

An identity check saves you the time and energy of verifying an applicant’s information and indicates which applicants need to submit further proof of ID.

Credit Checks

A credit check is an important part of any new hire screening, but it’s especially important if you’re hiring someone for a sensitive role or a position that puts someone in charge of large amounts of money. 

Credit checks haven’t always been accessible for small business owners, though. ShareAble for Hires provides a convenient way to get effective, low-cost credit checks by allowing the prospective hire to accept your offer for screening and initiate the sharing of their own information. This also saves the potential employee from a hard credit check, making the entire process smoother for both parties.


Pricing with SharAble by TransUnion is fairly straightforward. Signing up is free, and you won’t pay any subscription fees. 

ShareAble has a pay-per-use structure, so you choose from 3 different pre-employment report tiers depending on the depth of each screening. 

Background Check Basic $25

  • Instant State and County Check
  • Federal Watch Lists Check
  • National Sex Offender Registry Check

  • Name and SSN Match Report

Aside from the per-report fee, you won’t find hidden expenses, fees or subscriptions to be part of the ShareAble experience.

Mobile App

ShareAble aims to streamline the hiring process, so you don’t want to be limited to completing employee screenings by the time spent in your office chair. Luckily, the widespread use of smartphones means most of us have a small, high-powered computer in our pocket (okay, more like glued to our hand) and are able to tackle important tasks without ever slowing down.

ShareAble by TransUnion doesn’t offer a mobile application. But its mobile website is so well-designed, you may not miss the app. We found the mobile site to be as easily navigable as the browser version. This means you and any prospective future employees can access your screenings and reports anytime, anywhere. 

Customer Service

ShareAble boasts accessible customer service. You can tweet @ShareAbleHires or call 888-710-0272. 

You’ll also find helpful FAQ sections for both employers and applicants, as well as insights and best practices for finding good hires in the hiring resource center. This educational hub includes expertise on topics like compliance, reducing employee turnover and more.

ShareAble Overall Rating
