Paper Conversion

Card Scan is a high reliability alternative that is cost effective for very remote or low volume fingerprinting requirements.

Ink and roll fingerprinting has been the hallmark of criminal history checks for years. Most corporate/departmental security officers still process fingerprints in this fashion. An experienced fingerprint taker can capture exceptional quality prints using this method. Unfortunately, the conversion process to turn these prints into an electronic format that can be compared against criminal records can take an inordinate amount of time. Delays in excess of 8 months are commonplace.

Investing in livescan capture equipment in an effort to be able to submit electronically cannot usually be justified based on the low fingerprint volumes and high cost of acquiring, supporting and upgrading systems. A local ClearNeed Affiliate may be available to come to your office and provide this service. If you are in a remote area or you simply want to continue with the process you have found to be tried and true, ClearNeed's Paper Conversion service is right for you.
