What is Fresh Haystack?

Fresh Haystack is a “game-changer”, as some of our clients have described it post implementation. A comprehensive, logically structured, user friendly case management system, Fresh Haystack (FH) is a paperless, workflow based and automated Case Management solution built for the specific purpose of streamlining the complex security and background investigation management processes. FH was built to cut cost, increase efficiency, increase productivity, enable automation and deliver visibility into the security clearance process. FH brings clarity to candidates, security personnel, adjudicators, investigators and internal auditors. Our modular system is easy to implement, allowing for a rapid, staged deployment with follow-on releases of enhanced features to accommodate program breadth, secure integration needs and evolving requirements.

The continual changes to security requirements are driven by the challenges in our economic landscape, the ever-present threats to our national security, and the evolving complexity of human resource capital. These security requirements dramatically impact business resources, with executives and managers seeking operationally relevant tools to balance business and talent requirements.

Fresh Haystack is the first commercial software platform designed to meet these growing demands, offering customizable solutions to government and corporate organizations in need of the Risk/Threat Assessment and Personnel Security. The Fresh Haystack solution offers flexible and scalable installation to meet the needs of any size corporate or government institution, on premise or in the cloud.
