Community Brands Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
In January 2019, Community Brands deepens background screening capabilities with the acquisitions of AmericanChecked, Shield Screening and U.S. Information Search. In addition to its volunteer screening, the company’s background check capabilities will now include industry-leading employment and tenant screening.
The company’s screening business continues to experience rapid growth through new customers, repeat sales, and company acquisitions. The newly-acquired companies and their respective services immediately strengthen the comprehensive background check business of Community Brands. The company also adds organizations that hold Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) accreditation offered by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS). BSAAP accreditation is the industry standard, awarded to organizations that uphold the highest standards of background screening.
As Community Brands launched new products and entered adjacent markets, the company continued to sign a significant number of customers across each line of business. Core, cloud-based, membership management systems grew double-digits, and dollars raised through the company's event fundraising platforms grew 24 percent. The company continues to capitalize on a market shift to electronic giving and fundraising; it is also benefiting from continued adoption of mobile tools by members, donors, and student families.
