Securus Technologies continues to remain the world’s leader in criminal justice solutions for jails, correctional employees, inmates and their families. Securus is a technology firm based out of Dallas, TX. The firm services over 3,400 public safety law enforcement and corrections institutions as well as servicing over 1,200,000 inmates. They are dedicated to providing biometric analysis, data engineering and other inmate communication solutions to everyone involved in the corrections industry whether they are an employee or a consumer.
The technology company recently announced the first major 2016 platform upgrade to many of their technological options. The newest release will have better front-end and back-end technology to give users the best experience possible. One of the first things users will notice is that usage and performance is much more streamlined.
Russell Roberts, who is the vice president of marketing and technology with Securus Technologies, said that their main purpose is to create a sense of community and keep everyone safe. “We have the largest IT development staff in the correction industry,” Roberts said. “We’re able to help everyone because we reduce the inconvenience of incarceration. It makes everyone’s experience better.”
Officials with the company were very excited this year because their platform update literally touched every part of their system. The online component, video visitation, the secure inmate phone calls platform, the investigator pro system, and the SecureView tablet system.
They have also launched a video visitation platform that allows inmates to connect with their families via their mobile app. You can register on Securus’ website for the software then download the app to your mobile phone by getting it for free from Google Play here >> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.securus.videoclient&hl=en
The CEO of Securus was also very excited about the different options under the new platform. He said that each release helps them to move further ahead of the competition. They have been able to do this with a great team and with a state-of-the-art calling platform and a good investment strategy for all of their clients. Those in corrections, family and friends of inmates, and corrections agencies will be pleased with the improved ancillary platform of the Securus system.
