What CIC's Customers Have to Say

I have had a great experience with CIC. I was able to speak with a person about our account one time and CIC was very understanding. They knocked off the late charges and kept our account open. Some vendors can really harass you when you are late with an invoice, but I felt like I was talking to a person with great customer service.
Jaime W., CBRE
My experience with CIC has been and continues to be great. I utilize the credit and eviction report features when processing prospective tenant applications. I find the system easy to use, and very affordable. The security features when logging on also help me to feel like the information that I enter is also kept safe and confidential. CIC has also provided me with opportunities to increase my knowledge base. Thank you CIC for helping me to improve my skills as an Onsite Manager with Bessire & Casenhiser.
Renee J., Bessire & Cassenhiser
I’ve worked with a few credit check companies and I really like that I can enter the info in and receive the report instantly. This saves time and removes the need to follow-up with a rep if the report doesn’t get sent timely.
Anne T., Charles Dunn Company, Inc.
CIC’s customer service is one of the best! They’re knowledgeable, courtesy and if they need to research an issue and get back to me, they actually do! I find it easy to navigate your website to run employment background checks and if I have a question regarding the results, I don’t hesitate to call customer service as I know they’re there for me!
Janice O., KMK Management
I am a landlord that has been using CIC for the past 9 years to run all of my credit/background reports (and I run a lot of them). We have tried other providers that have been offered through our property management software provider because it could save us some time only putting the information in once, but it is well worth the time to get a much better and more detailed report from CIC!!! And their customer service is always helpful when I call them!
Morgan V., Century 21 – Meyer Real Estate
Running criminal background checks on our new residents is easy and quick with CIC. I had a question on what was “criminal justice” jargon and reached out to CIC Customer Service and they were very helpful in explaining the terms and helping me understand the jargon. Makes my life as a property manager easy when it comes to running these reports!
