CEO Barton Taylor founded TazWorks in October of 2002 to provide a comprehensive software solution to background screeners and filling a void in the industry. Prior to TazWorks in 1989, Barton started Far West Credit services, a credit reporting agency. In an effort to diversify and grow his business, Barton expanded into background screening in 1997. During this transition, he had a lightbulb moment: most background screening companies struggle to afford to fund their own software, so why not build a simple, powerful solution that would meet and exceed their needs? Enter TazWorks. Barton’s experience as an entrepreneur, coupled with his insight into the background screening industry, has uniquely prepared him for the challenges of creating TazWorks. Each year brings new releases of features, functionality, and tools as he continues to push the boundaries of background screening software.
