Companies nowadays know the importance of investing in technology. New ways of doing new things are new ways of finding solutions for problems that did not have better ways to handle them. The advancement of technology is great for consumers but is also great for innovators, company developers and entrepreneurs as well. Employees can do their work with the same amount of dedication, but, with a well-developed platform, the efficiency is doubled, tripled. Or, for that example, they can do the same, with less work.
Technology has advanced in all sectors, from medicine to communication. More and more, clients are preferring those with modern solutions and new ways to make their lives easier or to provide something that they desire.
When it comes to prisons, though, no one really talks about the advancement of technology. After all, it is so far-fetched from our society, as we like to think, and the prison environment rarely is mentioned when we talk about things that are not disastrous news or crimes in the penitentiaries. When we talk about tech, however, prisons and correction agencies have a lot to teach about their development throughout the years.
When Securus Technologies was created, they had the focus of using new tech to provide solutions for penitentiaries, prisons and correction agencies. They had the primary focus of communication in mind, but have since branched to other paths, even if their communication services are still the premium images of the company.
With Securus emphasizing their efficiency at developing secure and stable technology and the other part of the name being self-explanatory, this corporation has, since its creation, dominated a market that was seeing a downfall in innovation and actual improvement in service.
The communication aspect of Securus Technologies show their commitment to finding new ways to do old things. Their telephone services, although not that different on paper, have the best quality in the market. Many inmates have shared their opinion on what Securus brought to the table, and they all wanted to add that the calls did not fail once.
Securus Technologies, making sure that their name is accurate, also developed a way of monitoring calls and making sure the staff of the prisons can, with a few clicks, revisit past calls between inmates and their connections. With that tech, employees of these agencies can, if needed, investigate on crimes that they believe are happening.
One example of the prime use of that tech was when a few employees of a prison found out that there was an insider that was helping an inmate contraband drugs inside the jail. The man was arrested immediately, and the monitored call was proof enough of the crime.
Securus Technologies has changed the industry completely.
