Securus Technologies is the leader in the Correctional Market with technologies and Services that have proven revolutionary. The company is now launching a campaign relative to its Video Visitation Technology. Other technological solutions include those specifically designed for public safety, investigations of criminal activities, monitoring and more. The new campaign will emphasize the benefits of its Video Visitation technology.
The campaign is initiated by way of a number of commercials, designed to illustrate how the video visitation technology should be used. The CEO of Securus, Richard A. “Rick” Smith, states that the company has connected 160,000 visits, on a monthly basis, using the revolutionary, new technology. The family member of the incarcerated individual is able to make use of the technology, in way of his or her scheduled visits. The visits may be performed, through means of a mobile application, or conveniently from a person’s desktop computer. The remote technology allows a visit, by the family member, without the need to drive to the correctional facility location. The commercials will show how the video visits provide value, to the visitation and the person making use of it. The commercials are scheduled to begin at the end of November 2016, and for 30 days—forward.
Securus Technologies, providing the correctional facility with the video visitation solution, has been able to connect an incarcerated father with his son during the Holidays. Daughters have received help, with regard to their homework assignments, from their imprisoned fathers. Special occasions have been shared between that of the inmate and family member—such as Birthdays. Some members of the correctional facility have been able to use video visitation technology, witnessing their off-spring grow up.
Persons who are opponents of video visitation, inside of the correctional system, have made false accusations that Securus, somehow, has some sort of special influence over its use—with regard to its correctional institution consumer-base. The preceding is simply not true. How the technology is used, procedure-wise, is up to the institution. Additionally, the use of video visitation does not limit a family member or inmate’s friend from making a physical visit to the jail. It is merely another visitation option for persons, located outside of the correctional center environment. The feature of visiting, remotely, however, is that a person can visit with his or her loved-one, more frequently. The technology, too, is a safe and secure means of visitation. The following reasons are why the technology of Video Visitation has enjoyed a growth spurt and continues its pattern of growing from year-to-year.
Securus’s CEO and Chairman, Richard A. (“Rick”) Smith, conveyed, that persons who do not understand the practical aspect of video visitation technology, simply do not understand what it is like to be incarcerated. Nevertheless, a person opting to visit an incarcerated individual, by using the technology, is able to reduce the costs of travel to the facility and that of parking. Another hassle, too,is that of checking into the correctional institution. Video visitation, assures the preceding hassle is avoided.
Some persons, according to Mr. Smith, have inaccurately depicted video visitation technology as some form of chat or Skype—both representations simply untrue. In reality, video visitation requires the family member of the inmate to register and schedule his or her visit. The processes associated with video visitation are totally automatic. Technological features, with respect to the solution, apply, inclusive of stack, security, and scalability.
Relative statistics, with regard to the video visitation solution follow:
–One hundred seventy-eight U.S. agencies offer the solution;
–One hundred sixty thousand visits are connected every 30 days, and 2,000,000, yearly;
–One hundred ten thousand visits are performed by way of an app;
–Two dollars and seventy-two cents is the average cost of a visit by video;
–A member of an inmate’s family saves around one-hundred dollars per visit; and
–Two hundred thirty-two thousand downloads have occurred.
In conclusion, the incarcerated person’s family is able to easily communicate with him or her, during the holidays. He or she can choose a remote visit or to pay a visit to the correctional facility.
