Leading corrections technology provider Securus Technologies is helping correctional facilities modernize the way inmates make requests. Through ConnectUs, inmates in jails and prisons automatically make requests digitally, instead of using paper forms. This saves the guards from having to distribute paper forms, collect them, and then file the forms; tedious paperwork that takes them away from their real job. ConnectUs is customizable; correctional facilities can choose what inmates can access. ConnectUs is available on the iPhone inmate terminal hardware, which is also revolutionary since it is powered by facility’s existing copper wire, instead of AC power.
Securus Technologies makes acquisitions, nine so far, in order to offer the latest technology to its customers. When Securus Technologies acquired JPay Inc., the company gained access to JPay’s software for inmate tablets, which, like ConnectUs, helps prisons run more efficiently.
Innovative technology that allows inmates control over submitting grievance forms and helps acquaint inmates with the latest educational apps helps promote a safer corrections environment. Inmate’s families also benefit when jails and prisons implement Securus Technologies communication equipment, including video visitation and telephone call services.
