Overland Park, KS — September 2, 2009

Inc. 5000

Inc. magazine has ranked eScreen, Inc. NO. 3,850 on the third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This is eScreen’s second consecutive year as a list honoree and the company earned a higher ranking over its position in 2008. The list represents a comprehensive look at one of the most important segments of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.

“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”

eScreen was founded in 1998 as the pioneer manufacturer and marketer of employment screening technology and web-based applications for the hiring and maintaining of efficient workforces. eScreen set the new standard for drug testing program management and directly affected the evolution of employee drug screening, including introduction of the industry’s only instrumented 10-minute negative urine drug screen, the first-tomarket paperless chain of custody form, and integrated web-based result reporting.

Today, as one of the largest Third Party Administrators (TPA) in the country, eScreen processes millions of corporate data transactions each year and offers a centralized process to ensure program compliance for both federally regulated (DOT) and non-regulated hiring programs.

“Over the past year, eScreen has prospered in a turbulent economic climate by focusing on applying technology to our clients’ problems”, said eScreen’s President and CEO Robert Thompson. “Our ability to rise to the challenge of each individual customer and deliver a best-in-class process serves as a testimony to the dedication of the eScreen team. We appreciate Inc. magazine for recognizing our company along with the other prestigious organizations on the list.”
