Senior ride service partners with background screening firm

Envoy America, a new “door-to-door” transportation model designed specifically for seniors to help them maintain their independence, announced a partnership agreement with Scottsdale-based Reliable Background Screening to screen all of its drivers and employees.

The background screening program includes criminal background checks, safe driving reviews, drug testing, and other security programs. Each element of the program is key to maintaining the commitment to safety and security, and trust, for Senior passengers.

Envoy America is an affordable time-based subscription ride service. Envoy America drivers are also companions and helpers. For example, during an outing, the driver may help with errands by carrying groceries or picking items off high or low shelves.

Drivers also accompany seniors to medical or social appointments just like a family member would.  The background screening process provides seniors and their adult children confidence and trust in their drivers and in Envoy America.

“Our motto is – if you could have known, you should have known,” says Rudy Troisi, president and CEO of Reliable Background Screening.

“We are proud to work with Envoy America, especially given the nature of their business and their passengers. We have designed a custom program just for Envoy America to meet and exceed their expectations.”

“We treat each of our clients as a precious trust and we devote every possible resource to ensure a safe trip,” said K.C. Kanaan, co-founder of Envoy America.

“This starts with the careful screening of our driver team members and the on-going monitoring of their full compliance with our policies, procedures, and values. Our partnership with Reliable Background Screening is an important part of how we deliver on our brand promise.”
