Securus Technologies is a Dallas based technology company specializing in prison technology. Founded way back before the 1990s, the company now boasts over 1000 employees. Moreover, it is contracted by over 2500 correctional facilities across the United States alone. Across the borders to Canada, Securus Technologies has a market share of about 2200 correctional institutions. An announcement by the company in the year 2016 placed its financial investment at above $600 million covering acquisitions, technological assets and patents over a period of three years.
Securus Technologies has several products in its name. It introduced a control system for contraband cell phones. The company via its Managed Access Solutions product had gained confidence with over five correctional facilities by 2016. Through a partnership with Harris Corporation, Securus worked on a technology termed as the Cell Defender technology. Further still, it is through the company’s developed wireless solution that we can keep mobile networks safe from infiltration by contraband cell phones.
As a global leader in provision of communication to detainees, Securus Technologies sets its focus to meet the special needs associated with law enforcement institutions. Apart from communication services, Securus also offers tracking of parolees and management solutions for government information systems. Part of the acquisitions by Securus Technologies include Guarded Exchange, Primonics and Telerus and many others. Offering more than one service I believe sets Securus apart from their competition.
Securus Technologies Deserves the Winner Prize
The naming of Securus Technologies as finalist in the competition for Customer Service Training Team of the year places it in a position to earn either the gold, silver or bronze. This according to my assessment is a welcome achievement but it is not enough. I believe that Securus should clinch the winner in this gala because their service has been exceptionally great. Their technology is easy and efficient; I can attest to that.
Moreover, securus’ work impacts more on the society and thus the company’s influence is important to our inmates and ourselves. Though the choice will be tough to make, my take is that considering the strides Securus Technologies has made in improving prison technology, it stands as the worthy recipient of the winner prize.
