Securus Brings a Video Visitation Technology to Correction Facilities

Securus Technology has revolutionized communication in correction facilities. The company has gone beyond its duty and provided a video visitation technology. Rates for the video communication system are reasonable for any video chat. Considering that you can see and hear your loved one, the communication is better. Traditional communication systems had several problems. One could barely hear the caller or receiver. There was always an annoying electronic operator reminding one that time was up. The video visitation program allows one to talk for longer.

 

The online video visitation program has created convenience for inmates and their loved ones. Prison facilities are always on the outskirts of town. Depending on your state, it could be anywhere from 25 to 50 miles. One had to travel for several miles to visit their loved ones. Securus has made it possible to talk to loved ones without wasting time on the road. It is important to know that you no longer have to go on a road trip to see an incarcerated family member.

 

I find that the video visitation beneficial as it has eliminated time factor in prison visits. Instead of waiting in long queues, a simple online video call completes the entire communication. This is real progress. The communication industry has never had such flawless communication.

 

Securus Technologies was established to avail its services to people within correction facilities. The company has served its purpose by providing an excellent communication network. Securus is a leading provider of communication service. Through the help of the company, family and friends can communicate through a video visitation option. The availability of personal computers, smartphone and tablets has made this possible. Securus is a company based in Dallas, Texas. It currently serves more than one million inmates across North America. It avails its services to thousands of correction facilities within the United States and Canada.

 

The Securus Video Visitation program is a two-way video screen. It allows an inmate to use screens located at specific locations in the correction facilities. They can contact their loved ones through a smartphone, a computer or a tablet with a camera. The family can also schedule a block of time for communication. The use of the communication system has made it possible for family and friends to communicate.

 

I find that the video visitation is a great idea for friends and families that have small children. People that cannot access correction facilities find the video extremely beneficial. It creates a great ease with mobility, time and distance.

 

 

Securus Technologies Fights To Protect Their Industry’s Reputation

I’m glad Securus Technologies is trying to shame Global Tel Link (GTL), also an inmate communications provider, into acting more responsibly toward the families of inmates. While Securus highlights GTL’s past fraudulent actions, Securus’ CEO says that GTL still isn’t acting with integrity. Providing the only link that some family members have with inmates is such an important function, nevertheless, some communication providers only care about revenues. At least Securus understands that while they have a right to make a profit, they are also serving the child who calls his parent in prison because he or she can’t visit the facility and the mother who keeps in touch with her son to keep his spirits up.

I realize that some people may question Securus Technologies’ press release about GTL, especially since inmate communication companies have been taking a beating in the press lately, however, Securus does not engage in questionable practices like some of their competitors. The company is trying to improve the image of the prison communication industry, because the industry provides a vital service. Securus has an A+ rating from the BBB, therefore, they have a right to call out other companies in the same sector that are tarnishing the public’s perception of the industry.
