Securus Technologies has recently announced that they have reached an agreement to purchase government payment giant, GovPayNet. This acquisition is just the latest in a number of acquisitions that the inmate technology company has made in the past several years. President and CEO of Securus, Bob Pickens, is excited about the move, saying that it will now allow the company capability to process over 40 million transactions annually. It will allow the company to provide their existing customers with a wider suite of products. GovPayNet CEO, Mark MacKenzie, will stay on as the leader at the company and is excited to see their growth potential expand.
Securus Technologies was founded in 1986 and provides inmate technology services to prisons, correctional facilities, and government public safety agencies. They currently serve over 3,500 agencies across the United States. The company is headquartered in Dallas, with three other regional offices nationwide. This acquisition is the latest in over 20 different transactions that Securus has completed in the past several years. GovPayNet provides payment processing solutions for debit and credit transactions to over 2,300 government agencies. Some payment services they provide are tax payments, traffic fines and fees, probation fees, and bail payments. They have a market share that covers over 36% of counties in the United States. The company is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana and has been in business since 1997.
It hurts me to know that an innocent nine-month-old baby was murdered under the orders of an incarcerated gang member. This man was able to give such an order because he was in possession of a phone in jail. The fact that someone who is already in a corrections facility can orchestrate such an atrocious act is dumbfounding. For that reason, Wireless Containment Solution is one of the most impactful ideas Securus Technologies has ever come up with. It is designed to prevent contraband cell phones for accessing network.
It has been well received by the corrections community. Since its introduction to the world, it has prevented about 1.7 million illegal communication attempts in eight facilities, which is a very short time. Given the commitment of the company to making this technology better, it will do more in the future. No wonder one customer applauded the company’s mission to revolutionize the incarceration environment.
Strive For Consistent Improvement
Securus Technologies was founded in 1986 for the sole purpose of providing solutions that aid the improvement of public safety. The company deals in detainee communications, parolee tracking, and government information management solutions. More than 20 years later, Securus Technologies boasts of a round the clock tech support team and 140 patents with 90 more pending approval. This company possesses an unwavering determination to solve and prevent crimes by creating at least one new product on average every week.
Giving Room to Innovation
I am certain that the ever-evolving investigative tools marry well with an aggressive investigative mindset, which is bad news for criminals everywhere. The company seeks to provide specialized communication experiences between detainees and their families. Today, Securus Technologies has served thousands of facilities and more than one million inmates nationwide. In a bid to be better and to give better services, the company invests heavily in research and development.
