Daphne Large, founding CEO of Data Facts started her career at age 16 working for Equifax Services. In 1989, at the age of 27, Daphne recognized a competitive advantage in the Consumer Reporting Industry and started Data Facts. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Data Facts initially focused on providing consumer information to mortgage lending institutions to assist them in closing mortgage loans. In 1991, Data Facts diversified its portfolio by expanding into the Background Screening industry.
In 1992, Data Facts opened its second branch of operations in Little Rock, Arkansas. Three years later, Julie Wink, partner and current President joined Data Facts. In 2003, Data Facts recognized the need for stricter industry regulations regarding background screening agencies and the information they provide to their clients. Along with a group of additional background screening agencies, Data Facts became one of the founding members of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) now known as the Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA). Over the next nine years, Data Facts was instrumental in shaping the foundation of the PBSA, and shortly after accreditation was offered, Data Facts became PBSA accredited.
In 2013, having served on the board since 2007, Daphne Large was elected as the President of the National Consumer Reporting Agency (NCRA) and over the next six years, excluding 2018, Data Facts was recognized by the Commercial Appeal as a Top Workplace in Memphis.
2014 was an important year for Data Facts. The acquisition of One Source Credit Reporting in Houston, Texas was completed and Data Facts received their SOC 1 and SOC 2, Types I & II certification. Additionally, Daphne Large was inducted into the Society of Entrepreneurs.
In 2015, Data Facts received their Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) certification and became officially recognized as a woman-owned and operated business.
Two years later, Julie Wink was elected as the NCRA President, making her the second officer from Data Facts to serve.
In 2018, Data Facts expanded its operations and relocated to their new corporate headquarters at 8000 Centerview Parkway in Cordova, Tennessee. This move tripled Data Facts footprint and consolidated two Memphis locations into one corporate facility. Two months later, Data Facts was ranked as a top background screening provider by HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings.
2019 proved to be a turning point for Data Facts. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, our company doubled in size when we acquired Strategic Information Resources, Background Decision and All In Compliance based out of Holyoke, Massachusetts. This acquisition allowed Data Facts to offer a wider range of complimentary and adjacent lending and background screening products and solutions to our customers and increased our influence with legislative and regulatory activities. Later in 2019, Data Facts was ranked again by HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings. This time; however, Data Facts was listed as the number 1 mid-size program background screening firm in the nation. Data Facts was also selected as a Top Workplace in Memphis by the Commercial Appeal for 2019.
“We currently use Data Facts for Verification of Employment and Tax Transcripts. One piece of the ATR/QM mortgage regulation that came out last August, was that employment must be verified before the loan closes. Data Facts is very prompt in getting these verifications back for us! Tax Transcripts were a whole other issue, we would spend weeks waiting on tax transcripts to be returned to us. When we signed on with Data Facts we now receive these within 24 hours. This not only makes it easier for us to do our job, but makes our customers very happy because they are able to close that much quicker! ”
