About Chris and Konfir
Konfir launched in 2021 with the aim of changing employment verifications by making use of disparate data sources, protecting consumers, and saving businesses time. Their B2B SaaS platform lets users instantly access employment or income records for any UK-based worker, with their consent.
The platform aggregates multiple consent driven payroll, HR and banking data sources, to offer an efficient solution to the current administrative headache of running pre-employment verification and getting the necessary checks employees need and it is the first of its kind in Europe.
Employment verifications are required in various consumer life events such as moving jobs or homes. Companies and individuals face a barrier, having to prove on average either 3 or 5 years of work history. This sensitive employment data is currently shared in an unsecure way via email, PDF or on phone calls.
Konfir simplifies and secures the process; starting with employee permission and then moving through a streamlined workflow which companies can integrate with directly.
The team at Konfir have built out their network throughout 2022; launching with the UK’s biggest background checkers. Whereas verification used to take 5-15 days to be completed, Konfir is now completing nearly half of verification in under one hour.
Next year, Konfir plans to scale rapidly, increasing volumes with new and existing clients. They aim to become the de facto proof of employment and income in the UK.
