About SAS

Our Value to You

SAS Data Retrieval is your nationwide wholesale research provider specializing in criminal and civil court records research. The company’s standards were built upon three industry valued principles; constant communication, impeccable accuracy, and fast turn-around-times. SAS Data Retrieval strives to be the leading records research provider in the background check industry while always retaining a close personal relationship with each and every client.

Start with the customer

With the customer in the center of everything we do, we promote a partnership approach experience. We are committed to deeply understanding our clients’ needs and work hard to create relevant solutions. 

One team, trusting culture

We believe that the company is the culture it promotes. Together we push forth our mission and values. The success of the company depends on our team and it is through the sharing of information and team work that we are able to overcome our challenges successfully.

Know why

We provide full context, set clear goals and use independent thinking. We believe in the power of information not only with our clients but also with team members. Knowing why before taking action and investing time is essential.

Challenge ideas, respect decisions

All of our team members have a voice and we encourage them to use it. Having a diverse team is only beneficial if the team feels comfortable sharing their thoughts and ideas. Having a safe space to share concerns and vet ideas is the foundation of a trusting team. Once the decision is made, we all jump onboard.

Lead with accountability and integrity

We are in the business of accountability and integrity and we take our role very seriously, not only with our clients but also with our team members. The role of a leader is to create an environment in which their team feels supported, are provided clear expectations and held accountable for their actions. Be the leader you wish you had.

Listen to comprehend not to respond

The biggest communication issues and missed opportunities happen when we do not listen to comprehend. There is more than one solution to any problem and taking into consideration the opinions of others is something we make space for.

Face situations with empathy and objectivity

We believe in putting yourself into the other person’s shoes in order to better understand their perspective with compassion without letting emotions cloud your judgment. Be open minded and compassionate but always consider the facts rather than feelings. 

Provide clear expectations

Never assume anything. We provide clear expectations to both clients and team members. We believe by being clear and concise we promote healthy teamwork and increase initiative and productivity. 

Address issues, not solutions

There is always more than one way to solve an issue and the best solutions can change over time. We focus on the issue at hand without getting so attached that we can’t let a solution go when a better one arises. 

Think outside the box

Challenge the status quo and allow for innovation to happen. We explore ideas that are creative and unusual by not limiting ourselves to be controlled by preconceptions.

SAS Data Retrieval 

Seth worked as a researcher for a public record retrieval company prior to founding SAS Data Retrieval. While the other company was successful, Seth saw many opportunities to make changes that he thought would greatly benefit the clients, the end users, the operation of the company, and the industry overall. In 2015, shortly after graduating from business school, SAS Data Retrieval was born. The ideas such as constant communication, use of technology, and a different management structure were put into practice and received nothing but positive reviews from each and every client that we have had the pleasure to work with.
