Correctional facilities are overcrowded today, pure and simple. This overcrowding leads to an overabundance of paperwork that takes many man hours to complete. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent every year which could have been saved with simple technological upgrades. Until now, there’s been no cohesive way to recoup that loss, but Securus Technologies has just released a new platform that will very likely change that for the better.
Established in 1986, Securus Technologies has provided information technology solutions for law enforcement and surrounding areas over thirty years. Since its inception in the 80s, Securus has expanded to provide help to over 2,600 corrective facilities. Among those facilities they cater to some 1.2 million inmates every year. Securus has also recently received an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau; and with thirty years’ successful, useful service, it’s easy to see why they deserve every bit of it.
The most recent innovation of Securus is ConnectUs Automated Forms. This platform provides features and applications of almost unlimited variety, and is certainly more all-encompassing than any options that have ever been available to incarcerated individuals. But with that exceptional spread of features comes great security responsibility. Securus understands this, and so has given customizability and control to the administrators of their new platform per facility. Specific limitations can be set which ensure that no inmate has access privileges they should not, and that they are accessing the information they need to at the right time of day in the correctional facility’s regular cycle of things.
Without the need to file and categorize physical paperwork, correctional facilities can devote the expanded budget to more rehabilitative measures of correction over time. Money is saved, inmates are treated with greater humanity than they could have been before, and Securus is able to look to the next big innovation. Indeed, ConnectUs is revolutionary.
