Trade License Verification Service

Partnering with a trade license verification service can make all the difference in your contractor compliance program. Here’s what you should know.

If your organization relies on skilled contractors to accomplish tasks on your behalf, verifying licenses should be a central part of your agreement with the contractor. Our team at PlusOne Solutions provides the ideal solution to any organization that needs a trade license verification service. We efficiently and accurately provide the information and added peace of mind you’re looking for.

Why You Need A Trade License Verification Service:

Your Team Can’t Keep Up

If you have hundreds or thousands of contractors in your network, like many of the large organizations we work with, license verification can turn into a highly-burdensome task.

Not only do you have to verify the licenses before the contractor starts to work for you, but you should understand if the licenses provided are appropriate for the work being completed. You also need to check that the license is being renewed at the appropriate time and all credentials are up to date. Any delay in this process could put your organization at risk.

You Need Access to Experts

Managing contractor licensing in-house often means members of your team are left juggling this task along with their other responsibilities. They may not verify licenses as a regular part of their role, which makes it easy to make mistakes.

Our license tracking team actively provides trade license verification services to our customers every day. We have a deep understanding of what licenses are required in your state and jurisdiction, and we are able to verify that the license actually belongs to your contractor and not to someone else. Our team knows where to go to verify each license, and we have the systems in place to follow up with your contractors if the need arises.

Since not every license verification is one size fits all, we offer customized and robust reporting, report what licenses are required and for which jurisdictions, and work tirelessly to create solutions that fit your needs. Our tailored license and certification requirements are based on the scope of work performed specific to your contractors and vendors. We even offer reporting of licenses for multiple jurisdictions.

Licensed Contractors Perform Better Work

Trade License Verification ServiceNot only does working with licensed contractors keep your organization compliant, but it’s also the best choice for your customers. Your contractors are a reflection of your organization, and when they provide services on your behalf, your customers view them as representatives of your brand.

Licensed contractors have completed sufficient training and have the knowledge and years of experience needed to obtain their trade licenses. This translates into higher quality work for your customers and an overall more positive experience.

We also understand that some work does not require a license and can help you make informed decisions as whether a license is required or not.
