There are many avenues across the country for inmates incarcerated in jails and prisons to communicate with family and loved ones. But behind the means to communicate are technologies that have shaped and molded phone calls, VOIP, video chats and email. And driving those technologies are companies who have invested time and money to bring about the ideas of advanced technology.
Securus Technologies and Global Tel Link (GTL) are two of the biggest communications giants that have shaped the industry today, and Securus Technologies who has invested and grown more than GTL has issued the challenge to prove they are the biggest and most advanced communication company in the country.
Securus Technologies boasts a broad array of technology platforms that allow inmates communication to reach friends and families because of how they have leveraged their reinvestment back into the company to the tune of over $700 million. Part of the investments they have made have been to buy up smaller companies to acquire necessary technology to add to the many platforms available.
Because of the amount of time and money Securus Technologies has invested in their growth, they feel that through an independent judge they would win a head-to-head competition against GTL as the company of choice for inmate communications. With the use of an independent judge, the competition will measure the two companies in comparison to product sets, calling platforms and customer service.
Even without engaging in a head-on competition or using an independent judge, Securus Technologies feels they are superior for a very simple reason; time and time again customers are leaving companies like GTL to join Securus Technologies and enjoy the great technology they have to offer. Securus Technologies provides communications for nearly 1.2 million inmates across the country.
