Securus Technologies Acquiring GovPayNet as Part of Its Expansion Drive

In the correctional field, one of the companies that have made remarkable progress in the last couple of decades is Securus Technologies. The company provides inmate communication services that are known to be efficient as well as customer-centric. Rick Smith, the CEO of Securus Technologies has been associated with the telecommunication sector for the past many years and knows that the competition is high.

 

The only way to stay ahead in this highly competitive field is to keep researching and innovating is what Rick Smith believes, and rightly so. Securus Technologies has been developing high-end technologies from time to time, one of which is the video visitation facility that it developed. It allows the inmates as well as their family members to communicate with each other. It would ensure that the family members don’t have to come to the prison to meet the inmates, saving them considerable time and money.

 

Securus Technologies also recently announced that the company has been spending an enormous amount on research and development as well as for patent acquisition. The company recently made two significant purchases, which includes Jpay Inc and another GovPayNet. Both these companies are into payment processing services and have helped Securus Technologies to strengthen its position in money transfer and payment processing business, which is integral as well as the highly profitable arm of the correctional field. Securus Technologies doesn’t only focus on building new technologies and expanding its product portfolio but has also been able to develop its customer service.

 

The customer service of Securus Technologies has won many awards, including the famous Gold Stevie Award. Securus Technologies has received the topmost rating by the Better Business Bureau, which showcases the high standard maintained by the company internally in its management and operations. Securus Technologies ensures that customers get complete value for money always.

Securus Technologies is Clamping Down on Prison Violence

In order to make certain that officers are protected while working in prisons, these institutions have begun utilizing a modern call monitoring system designed by Securus Technologies. I have been working in the local prison for a decade and in no time have I seen things so dangerous as they are right now. The inmates can easily get drugs, weapons, and just about any contraband they want to make life behind bars dangerous for all.

 

These inmates will often brag to one another about how easily they can get just about anything they want inside the jail, even easier than when they were out free on the streets. This is problematic for me and my officers because we can not have eyes in every area of the prison to stop potential trouble, and violent crimes have been on the rise in recent years.

 

To try and keep a lid on the violence, my team of officers will often rely on a number of resources to maintain order. Since the majority of contraband is confiscated inside the inmate visitor center, that is where we utilize scanning devices that can see everything each person coming into the jail is in possession of. We use that same device to check inmates before they are allowed to go back to their cells.

 

Securus Technologies is responsible for the implementation of a new inmate call monitoring system that we now use inside our jail. In the old days, we would simply place officers in a room to listen to the inmates on the phone, and it definitely was not an exact science trying to uncover information that we could make use of to maintain order. Now the LBS software allows my team of officers to know exactly when anyone on the phone mentions things like drugs or weapons.

 

Competition Between Securus Technolgies And GTL

In an effort to prove once and for all which is the better company, Securus Technologies has decided to give GTL a challenge to prove which company is better. Securus Technologies is the leader in the public safety field, but GTL is a competitor of theirs, that always wants to say that their technology is better. It is not, and this time, the company Securus Technologies wants it proven once and for all.

 

They have many of GTL customers coming to them in an effort to get the best in the industry, whether it is for telephone platforms or other safety measures. Since Securus Technologies is by far doing way more than their competitor on a regular basis.

 

The challenge will definitely be me by GTL, because they do want to keep some of their customers happy. They, however, must know that their technology is less efficient than Securus Technologies. By taking on the challenge they will show that they are able to handle competition, and also to admit defeat when they need to.

 

Securus Technologies is the leader in the safety field. The work in both the criminal and civil sector of justice, and they deal with the government on a regular basis. Every week, they develop better and newer technologies that help keep the public safer. The world is always watching what they are doing, because of their ability to create these types of technologies and techniques. Since they deal with over a million prisoners all the time, they are known as the leader in the field because of how they are able to control the safety aspects of correction facilities in order to make it safer for everyone involved. The future looks to be fantastic for them.
