Business Background Investigations

Business background investigations are usually focused on the business’s current situation. Common areas of interest in a business are its leadership and management structures, information and communications infrastructure, and its financial, operational and reputational health. More comprehensive business background investigations usually target the company’s current and future products and services; their processes, policies, procedures and methods; their clientele, vendors, partners and associates; and their marketing, sales and public relations strategies.
