Stevie Awards finals see newcomers, including Securus Technologies

Securus Technologies has made it to the final three positions in the contest for the Stevie Awards Gold Trophy. This remarkable feat has seen them move ahead of thousands of competitors in their bid for the title of reigning U.S. Customer Service Champion. Regardless of whether or not Securus takes the gold, reaching the final three ensures that they will, at a minimum, receive the Bronze Award. This marks a rite of passage for a company which has struggled against dogged critics and false accusations, taking on all comers headlong and slaying them utterly in the fight to rise to the top. Today, Securus Technologies is the undisputed king of the prison telecommunications industry and a major driver of innovation not just in the prison sector, but throughout the country as a whole.

 

Domination through innovation

Securus has over 600 patents and has spent billions of dollars on researching and developing new technologies that will make prisons safer and more efficient. This is an example of the best aspects of capitalism, where self-interest leads directly to the pursuit of paradigm-shifting innovations which transform the lives for the better of everyone they touch. This describes Securus’ journey without fault.

 

Over the last 10 years, Securus has rolled out so many new products that they couldn’t possibly all be listed. Securus has brought to market everything from the mundane, like prepaid collect calling accounts, to the exotic, like the DoD-inspired STINGRAY weapons system, to the transformative, such as Securus’ game-changing video visitation software. This tireless font of creative energy harnessed for the public good is one of the defining characteristics of Securus.

 

Such enviable results come from a corporate philosophy of putting the customer first, listening carefully and attracting the absolute best talent the tech sector has to offer. The Stevie Awards serve as a validation of this philosophy, one that will allow Securus to proceed into the future even more confident in its ability to juggle the ethical, moral and financial considerations required to run a world class prison communications firm.

 

 

Securus Giving Families More Options For Communication

It is insane to listen to the detractors of the latest Securus Technologies innovation. Securus is this telecommunications company that provides telecommunications services to prisons and jails around the country. That means they operate those telephones hanging on the walls of the prison, as well as other telecommunication services such as the new video visitation.

 

Somehow, opponents of the new video visitation technology say that families are being forced to use it. That is simply not true. Families are never forced to use a telecommunications service that they do not want to use. They are simply choosing to use this new technology in order to communicate with their inmate on the inside of the prison. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why.

 

Visiting a prison can be an uncomfortable and intimidating process. Prisons are not known for being the most beautiful buildings in the world. These dreary, drab and uncomfortable places can put even the most intrepid visitor at unease. Visiting a prison also requires a security check. These security checks can be fairly invasive and could make anybody feel uncomfortable. And on top of all of this, you are likely to wait a long time before visiting with your inmate.

 

Video visitation technology is instant. Securus makes using the technology as simple as possible. A friend or family member of an inmate can set up an account at the website of Securus. Once an account has been set up. The user can simply request a time for a video chat. The user then gets instant notification when the chat is approved. Then the user logs back into the website at the appropriate time to initiate the video visit. There are no long drives, embarrassing security checks or long waits injury buildings. Video visitation sounds like an alluring alternative.

 

11 Securus Technologies Employees Awarded A World Recognized Certification

Securus Technologies is dedicated to providing quality service to its clients. Securus Technologies has clients in business areas such as public safety, corrections agencies, law enforcement, and serves over 1 million inmates across North America. Securus Technologies provides an array of products and services that include emergency response, public information, incident management, investigation, biometric analysis, communication, information management, inmate self-service, and monitoring products.

 

Recently Securus Technologies announced that 11 of its field specialists have received an internationally recognized certification. The certification comes from Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI), which is a professional association that supports the information and communication technology (ICT) industry. The field specialists for Securus Technologies are to be commended for their hard work and dedication that was needed to earn the certification awarded by BICSI.

 

 Performing the necessary installs, cable connections, testing, and operations required for some of the jobs that are handled by field specialists at Securus Technologies is an awesome responsibility. Also, I am sure that Building Industry Consulting Service International has strict guidelines and requirements concerning the certification the organization provides to professionals in the information and communication technology industry.

 

ICT handles services and products such as project management, voice, data, electronic safety & security, and audio & video technologies. BICSI members and credential holders design, install, manage and maintain ICT projects. The projects concern issues including optical fiber- and copper-based distribution systems, pathways, spaces, and wireless-based systems and infrastructure. BICSI helps over 20,000 ICT professionals by providing training, conferences, publications and credentials.

 

I feel that the certification that the 11 Securus Technologies  field specialists received is good for the specialist because it helps them regarding recognition, training, expertise, and experience.

 

In addition, this is also good for Securus Technologies because the certification achieved by the 11 field specialists shows that the company is willing and able to provide quality training for its employees. This ultimately will help the company serve its clients better.
