Securus Technologies does an excellent job of securing inmate calls. Their families will receive every minute that is available to them under their agreement. Inmates and their families can now say goodbye to inmate calling with Securus Technologies. For over 30 years Securus has been successfully processing inmate calls throughout the nation and looking to expand globally. Securus Technologies started out as an inmate calling regulator and now they offer cost effective features to their clients.They have proudly concluded a fourth quarter audit of Global Tel-Link. A PRN Newswire article has named Securus Technologies one of the leading inmate monitoring networks.

 

They offer services that limit your commute to a correctional facility. Securus is securing inmate calling by partnering with Vimeo to offer superior calling features. JPay Service also shares a partnership with Securus. Thousands of inmates and their families can trust the Securus network as they continue to process over 56.7 billion calls annually. No other provider is equipped to handle the amount of calls they’ve helped inmates and their families. Inmates and their families never have to miss a moment of staying connected. Inmates depend on the telephone to transition out of a facility.

 

Securus Technology Programs

 

Video Chat Visitation

 

If you’re on an inmates visiting list you can get your visitation over the internet by video chatting. This reduces the need to commute to a correctional facility and eliminates traditional operator assistance. Visit your loved ones in a correctional facility from the privacy of your home or from anywhere you choose.

 

Prepaid Calling

 

Prepaid calling from Securus allows you to pay for inmate calling credits in advance. Say goodbye to the hassle of locating an authorized agent. This feature is available to inmates from inside the institution and their families through the official Securus Technologies website.

 

Recently as reported by PR Newswire, Securus Technologies has released the new THREADS 3.1 which is the most advanced data analytical tool in the market today. I also learned that the release was announced by Securus last December 21, 2015.

What is the impact of this latest update?

BBB.org gives us a backgrounder, Securus is the number 1 provider of technological innovations designed primarily for security and investigation activities especially in the field of public safety and criminal justice. The company is known for its state-of-the art platforms one of which is THREADS.

This implies that Securus is not jut satisfied with being the leader in the industry. It shows that user satisfaction is its primary concern over its market position.

Why are the changes they have made?

n They enabled some features that can record the loading details as well as the search function.

n They improved the system navigation and other related functions in order to make the platform much more user-friendly.

n There were also several built-in functions that were no longer useful and necessary, and they have now been removed to make the system more efficient and effective.

n Web-based technologies have advanced over a certain period of time. Therefore, to keep up with the latest technology, they adjusted the platform to make it more compatible with all the latest web-based technologies.

n They also enhanced the user interface (UI) not only for aesthetic purpose but also for smart functionality.

Is there a big difference from the previous one?

As far as I can see, there is a big difference since some unnecessary actions have already been removed. Nevertheless, the powerful features which many of Securus clients got used to are still kept. What makes THREADS 3.1 far different is because of the improvements of existing functions and the addition of new features.

Additional Features

n Guided real-time analysis

n Context-sensitive reports

n Customized mapping and printing

n Capability of integration with other Securus products

Conclusion

In my own assessment, I am convinced that THREADS 3.1 is an improvement rather than a correction. The changes that Securus has made seem to be based on the changes in the field of technology in general. Even so, THREADS 3.1 has been released not only to keep up with the latest technology but to be introduced as the most advanced data analytical tool in the market today.
