Securus Technologies, the go to provider for communications solutions within the United States prison system, has just recently increased its clout by purchasing a credit and debit card processing firm, GovPayNet. This merger of sorts will allow Securus to offer to its customers a more reliable and secure way to make payments for its products.
GovNetPay, up to this point in time, has serviced an estimated 26% of all US counties. Services they have provided are offered in over 35 states, and are used by over 2,300 agencies. The purchase of this company and addition of it to Securus Technologies gives the communications corporation an added edge in the market against its competitors.
Securus Technologies itself has been the leading producer of communications solutions for inmates and their families for a number of years. Products they have created include a very simple video chat interface, allowing convicts to speak with their loved ones over an internet connection. Not only do they offer this service, but they also supply penal facilities and its staff with security systems, communication devices, and the training needed to perform maintenance on their various systems when the need arises.
