employee/job applicant credit checks

We use a service to do our background checks on job applicants, but I am hiring a controller and would like to do a credit check (I have the applicant's authorization to do so). Does anyone have a service they use as a matter of course when hiring? I plan to make this part of our standard hiring practices for all office positions. Thank you.

Here's a webpage of SHRM exhibitors that include credit check (more broadly background checks) services to employers. I've used Hireright in the past without issue. The turnaround time and different categories of background checks will drive price of service. Hope this helps.
