Company description

We specialize in providing cost effective services to address the clear and ever growing security screening needs of both the private sector and government agencies. Unlike the usual software, equipment, support and upgrades that system vendors charge tens of thousands of dollars for, ClearNeed provides service based solutions that are never out of step with the RCMP’s latest NIST standards. Our services are designed to suit your business requirements:

• We are able to provide all the necessary hardware, software, connectivity, training and support at your facility for your exclusive use. If your security profile permits, you will also be able to receive electronic responses as well from the RCMP.

• We also have a network of Affiliates who are able to come to your facilities to capture and submit electronic fingerprints or you can visit them at their business address; the choice is yours.

• Should you be in a remote location and only have a limited need for fingerprinting services you can always make use of ClearNeed’s secure fingerprint conversion facilities where we guarantee same day conversion and electronic submission of your inked and rolled prints at extremely affordable prices.

• To accommodate the needs of agencies that process a large number of transactions ClearNeed also provides a capital purchase option that works hand-in-hand with the ClearNeed transaction server to provide secure, hassle free connectivity to the RCMP.
