Mindful Products

Securus Technologies, an information technology communication firm, has recently been under fire by GTL. GTL has stated that Securus Technologies no longer has valid patents for its products, which means that their product base is no longer under any sort of legal protection. This information is based upon a report that was released to the media a few months ago. What this means for Securus is that different companies would have access to their product information, which would lead to a major issue with future developmental projects. These accusations have recently been proven as inaccurate, meaning that Securus no longer has anything to worry about in terms of its products falling into the wrong hands.

 

Securus is an interesting technology corporation, in that it focuses on a particular niche for its customer base. Securus customers are incarcerated individuals currently serving time within the United States penal system. This means that these individuals do not have as much access to the outside world as their friends and family. This also means that they require a certain level of communications technology that they would not have access to without certain products. In order to meet customer needs Securus has provided inmates with reliable forms of technology, such as free mobile applications that allow inmates to communicate with their loved ones over video chat conferences.

 

The issues with Securus in terms of its patent content and validity is being put to rest finally. After months of accusations being brought upon them by GTL it would seem that things are finally starting to quiet down. The future looks bright for Securus, which continues to provide excellent customer service and reliable products of high quality to its customers. This means that they can continue to do business as they have been without further fear generation.

 

Free Calls in Flooded Areas

The southern portion of the United States has been facing more than their fair share of hardships over recent years. The most recent has been the severe flooding that has been forcing a deeply negative impact on southerners and their pockets. A seemingly countless line of storms have dumped an enormous amount of rain causing flooding in areas that were already suffering from poverty, leaving them completely stricken with poverty.

 

Many people and companies have decided to help to provide some relief and pitch in to ease the pain that the flooding has caused by providing free services to those citizens. One of the largest companies to recently make a generous contribution to help ease the financial hardships of those that have been affected by the flooding is Securus Technologies, a communications and prison supply company that is based out of Dallas Texas.

 

An article was recently published by the writers for PRN Newswire discussing the surprise donations of free phone calls from Securus Technologies to prisoners that currently live in one of the more than 3,400 different facilities that they contract with. The CEO issued a statement saying that the company will be allowing each of the prisoners to make a single free phone call every day until September 7th, so that they will be able to stay in touch with their loved ones during this difficult time.

 

Although the article says it outright, it is clear by the announcement of this more than generous donation, that the CEO Rick Smith and the company as a whole understand that providing high quality communications and support to prison inmates and their families is a very important part of the overall culture and success of prisons and detention facilities. The company has estimated that the overall value of the free calls will reach $350,000.
