ClearStar (AIM: CLSU), a provider of Human Capital Integrity℠ technology-based services specializing in the background and medical screening, announces that it has been appointed by a leading facilities management company to provide background screening of service providers entering its healthcare locations. This is ClearStar’s first contract in the facilities management sector and the Company expects it to generate a minimum revenue of $0.4m during the roll-out phase this year.
The customer provides facilities management and maintenance to leading brands across North America, with over 120,000 locations under management, in a range of industries. It helps manage facilities through its technology solutions and a substantial network of service providers. ClearStar has been appointed to provide background screening for the customer’s new program that requires all service providers to its healthcare facilities to undergo a background check and maintain a virtual ID card.
The virtual ID card incorporates the relevant information from the background screen thanks to ClearStar’s integration with the provider, Virtual Badge. The integration can also allow for continuous screening monitoring, with a badge becoming automatically suspended should the employee commit a predefined offense.
Robert Vale, CEO of ClearStar, said: “This is another fantastic customer win for ClearStar, reflecting the continuing upscaling of our client base with the increasing recognition of our brand. It marks a milestone as our first contract in the facilities management industry, which is an area with great growth potential. We help ensure the safety of the workplace by verifying the individuals who are entering, which is particularly relevant when it involves a large number of external service providers. We also have the opportunity to cross-sell further solutions to these service providers who will already be on-boarded to our platform. In addition, this contract expands our footprint within healthcare – and adds to a number of wins or expansions that we have recently received in this core sector. As a result, it has been an encouraging start to 2020 and we remain excited about the opportunities ahead.”
