The Starting Years:
What does MIE stand for?
Where did MIE start off?
How did MIE process orders?
The Development Years:
It was the time of the Great Y2K Scare, the biggest New Year’s parties in history were being planned for the Millennium and petrol cost a mere 67 cents per litre.
MIE’s incumbent system, codenamed Vista was straining under the weight of processing more than 100 transactions per day!
MIE developed the NQR™ (the National Qualifications Register) to manage qualification verification on behalf of all South African Universities.
“Integration” was the keyword! Get the fingers off the keyboards! Tight integration with ITC, Experian, the SAPS and Umalusi was implemented.
1000 verifications per day became a breeze!
The Kroll Years:
Midway through 2003 MIE was acquired by international background screener Kroll Inc. The company was rebranded to Kroll MIE
How many transactions did you do?
The National Credit Act came into effect and MIE registered as a Credit Bureau.
Muvoni was eyeing the Kroll crown jewels for one and the criminal record stage was set to raise the Background Screening bar.
The Muvoni Years:
The American-led Kroll brand was seeking to consolidate across the Atlantic. It made sense, everyone wanted it to be so, and MIE was acquired in full by the Muvoni group in 2009.
One of the first challenges for the new MIE was a dramatic change in the way criminal record checks were to be conducted. The SAPS required scanned fingerprint images!
MIE responded with one of its most effective innovations yet: SmartScreen®.
In response to a serious demand for SmartScreen® and its abilities, MIE built a custom training venue and developed a mobile training team that extended the company’s reach even further.
The 3, 4, 5 and 6,000,000th transactions hit the servers in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 respectively.
To celebrate, MIE built Background Screening’s first mobile app - MIETouch
The EOH Group acquired Managed Integrity Evaluation signalling a new era for the company. MIE might have a new Holding company but the same old standards of excellence remain.
MIE will remain an independent business within the EOH Group and continue to do what we do best: provide exceptional background screening services. The intention of the acquisition is to grow MIE’s business, and not change MIE’s continued successful business model. The existing MIE Management Team will continue to be the driving force and they assure their customers that the acquisition will not lead to any changes in service delivery.
An assurance to our clients is that:
