Securus Technologies is a well-known industry leader in the communications industry. It serves corrections institutes, safety associations, and law enforcement organizations. Securus currently works with over 3,400 clients and over 1.2 million inmates all over North America.
Phones such as iPhones, Android phones, tablets and regular landline phones all can hook up to Securus Technologies plans successfully. Calling plans include collect calls, direct billing, inmate debit plans in which the inmate himself is responsible for payment, and prepaid calling.
A video calling plan is very popular with inmates and the families as it allows callers to view each other during the call if a webcam is present on both ends of the call. It allows people to forego physical visits at the prison and the tiresome waiting in line at those facilities. A Jail Voicemail feature is also available along with email and a money transfer capability as well.
Recently, GTL, a competitor of Securus Technologies has put out propaganda that is blatantly untrue about Securus. They claim that their servicing and pricing capabilities are far superior to those of Securus, and the examples of their numbers are so far from the truth it must have come from Grimm’s Fairy Tales. There is nothing objective or true about their claims and Securus decided to put a stop to all the foolishness.
Securus publically issued a challenge to GTL to put up or shut up, in so many words. The challenge, officiated by a disinterested and impartial party, would have each company display their metrics regarding pricing and servicing results, backed by proofs that would be unimpeachable. The result would be the final judge for all of the world to see.
As soon as the challenge was put in place, the silence from GTL was amazing. Nothing was heard from them for a few weeks when the quietly declined to take part in the challenge. The truth won out in the instance, as it always does.
