OUR STORY

About Us

TrendSource launched our OnSite Inspection Services in 2005, and since that time we have earned a reputation as the premier provider of OnSite Inspections (OSIs) in the industry. Our commitment to integrity, quality, quick turnaround times, responsive customer service, and an innovative mindset keeps us at the head of the pack.

Although we started as a mystery shop company in 1989, we take pride in where we've come from, who we are, and how we got here, and we think this history differentiates us from other OnSite Inspection service providers.

WHERE WE CAME FROM

While TrendSource started as "a mystery shopping company" in 1989, we quickly grew into other areas as our clients gained confidence in our ability to deliver high quality intelligence that supported them in informed decision-making. Presently, the Trusted Insight side of TrendSource is a full-service market research firm with a diverse product offering and powerful client list that crosses a wide array of industries from Healthcare to Food Service. For more information about this side of our business, go here.

WHERE WE ARE TODAY

TrendSource OnSite Inspections began in Physical OnSite Inspection industry, and has grown to be represented in over 10 different OnSite Inspection industries, including Property Assessments, various areas for Compliance, and I-9 verifications. We are a group of innovators who are consistently assessing new areas in which we can leverage our network of Inspectors and our processes to provide value for the ever-changing needs of today's markets.

HOW WE GOT HERE

Our ISO Certification – Because we take great care in making sure all of our processes are mapped to clear outcomes for our clients, and we are always looking for continual improvement in our products, we were able to transfer this methodology to OSIs.

Our Proprietary Systems – Not only does this make our ordering website easy to use and clear for our clients, it also allows us to customize requests when needed and be flexible to our clients' evolving needs.

Our Field Agent Coverage – After spending 25 years perfecting our recruitment strategies to find good candidates to execute our work, we are able to pull from a network of 300,000+ Field Agents in North America, allowing us to get our OSIs done in record times! Our Certified OnSite Inspectors are a subset of individuals in this database who have specialized skill sets and are required to complete additional certifications and background checks on an annual basis.

Our Management of our Inspector Network – In addition to the size of our Field Agent network, we also make sure that our certification processes for the different types of work that we perform are accurately mapped to the complexity of that work. Our Certified OnSite Inspectors who execute OSIs are uniquely qualified to do so through a proprietary certification process that we have created to ensure that we have the right people doing the work.

Rest assured, we are thorough in our processes, and we take pride in our work. Order from us and you'll quickly realize that this is true.
