About Us

Welcome to ACRANET. Our industry is responsible for gathering, researching and verifying your applicants, but very few companies are able to deliver the quality along with the price and speed that you require. We have provided businesses, employers and landlords with the ability to conduct in-depth background screening on individuals and organizations with whom they engage.

Quality customer interaction and our hands-on approach have been the foundation of our company since 1903. We have branches from coast to coast that share a common software platform and an extraordinary commitment to customer service, providing our clients with a vast network of resources right at their fingertips.

We believe that our commitment to personable service, persistent accuracy and leading-edge technology sets us apart in the industry.

Our History

ACRANET has been a family-owned business since 1903. Serving as a credit bureau for nearly 100 years, ACRANET was formed to specialize in thorough background screening and products to serve the mortgage industry. Never wavering from a hands-on approach, our evolution continues to build toward the future of credit and background reporting.

With all the companies that claim to provide credit reporting services and vendor management, it is fair to ask “Why ACRAnet?” 

From the beginning, ACRAnet has been committed to providing:

  • Personal Services
  • Cutting-Edge Technology
  • Consistent Quality
  • Competitive Pricing

Personal Services

ACRAnet is committed to providing 100% satisfaction through superior customer service. We offer a unique alternative to the ever-growing problem of centralization of service centers. Larger providers often compete exclusively on price. Because they focus exclusively on quantity over quality, customers simply don’t get the most accurate and in-depth results. With other companies, instant results may result in instant risk. ACRAnet provides the best of both worlds: competitive pricing and industry-leading customer service.

Cutting-Edge Technology

ACRAnet’s products are able to be used through multiple platforms, simplifying processes across various industries while remaining in compliance. Technology partners are Soc 2 Type 2. ACRAnet is able to provide innovative and intuitive Internet based connections that integrate seamlessly with software used in financial and other industries.

Consistent Quality

ACRAnet is truly “the Information Network.” When we talk about service, we really mean it. Our cutting-edge delivery platforms allow for ordering, delivering, tracking, and supplementing requests. There are times when you need to talk to someone, and our specially trained customer service representatives and product managers are there to provide you with one-on-one human interaction when you need it.

Competitive Pricing

Customer service and competitive pricing need not be mutually exclusive. ACRAnet has more than 100 years’ experienced in the consumer reporting industry. We offer billing options to fit your individual business needs. With competitive pricing and customizable packages, our experience, friendly, and available staff can work with you to determine how our knowledge can best be provided to your business.
