Securus issues challenge, GTL takes rain check

Recently, Securus Technologies, the leading provider of inmate communications services, challenged its vocal opponent, GTL, to a game of technological one-on-one. The idea was to pit Securus’ widely acclaimed, proprietary video visitation technology up against GTL’s knock-off, dollar-store brand. As expected, GTL made an unqualified dash for the exit. This unwillingness to put its technology to the test signals that GTL doesn’t actually believe in its own core product, much less the fusillade of empty claims it has shot over Securus’ bow for the last two years.

 

First to market advantage

The truth is that GTL and other competitors have been playing catch-up with first-to-market Securus’ video visitation product since launch day, over a decade ago. Securus’ lead, rather than narrow, has widened to a yawning chasm that has seen its video visitation system become the dominant solution across the U.S. inmate communication market.

 

And this is all for good cause. Securus’ early rollout of the first VoIP-based inmate communication solution has saved prisoners and their families millions of dollars while allowing for unprecedented levels of contact between those who are incarcerated and those who love them. These benefits are not measured in mere dollars. It has been shown that prisons where Securus’ video visitation has been installed suffer from fewer disciplinary incidents as well as less contraband and fewer instances of the commission of felonies. This is due to the fact that the privilege of staying in nearly daily contact with one’s family provides an incentive for good behavior that few other things can.  Inmates who maintain hope and a sense of community outside of prison are far less likely to recidivist.

Knowing How Securus Works

Being able to keep in touch with your loved one in prison every single day from your own house can be something that seems like a dream for you. The problem a lot of prison families have if they just do not have the time or money to make those lengthy trip to the prison every single weekend like they would like. This is a problem in so many individuals lives and it is something that you will find to be able to be remedied simply by using a company like Securus.

 

Securus has recently launched a multi-state campaign to raise awareness for their video visitation service is available all across the country. My own experience using Securus has been a great one and it is why I always think it is something that prison families can benefit from no matter what type of situation they are currently in themselves.

 

More more individuals need to learn about this amazing company and to see if it can benefit them because of the fact that it has benefited so many other people in the same situation that they are in. You will be amazed at how quick and easy it is for you to video visit with a loved one and chat with them just by using a computer or laptop that you have in your very own home. It is enabling people to keep in touch with each other more easily in a secure and safe manner that they simply would not be able to get anywhere else by using a different type of service that happens to be out there.
