Normally, a correctional facility is going to have a great deal of paperwork tied up in day-to-day operations. For legal reasons this is often a necessity. Establishing a paper trail demonstrates legal acuity, and the following of established procedures. It’s a very necessary component of the modern legal system. However, properly categorizing information can be time consuming; especially if this is done using antiquated 20th century methods. Unfortunately, most correctional facilities don’t have direct access to the kind of tech corporations do, and so must resort to older tech. That’s a problem swiftly being solved by Securus Technologies of Texas, however.
Formed in 1986, Securus Technologies is the leading technology provider for corrective facilities in the United States, and likely the world–though their concentration is primarily within the country. It is Securus’ goal to continuously be on the cutting edge of all technology developments related to law enforcement. They’ve been very successful at this over the last several decades. One of their most notable recent innovations is called ConnectUs.
ConnectUs is a platform that provides inmates with endless features and applications that were previously beyond availability or imagination. These apps and features are strictly customizable and can be completely controlled by the institution which unveils ConnectUs. The full name of this new software innovation is ConnectUs Automated Forms. All the ubiquitous paperwork of operations is consolidated digitally, saving the paper, the time, the storage, and the aggravation of antiquated infrastructural operation.
The potential for savings across the country is in the multi millions with ConnectUs. Securus Technologies already caters to some 2,600+ corrective facilities across the country. Additionally, they cater to 1.2 million inmates across the country. This from a company that only has 500 to 1000 employees, according to LinkedIn. Streamlined, efficient success is the name of the game at Securus, and ConnectUs Automated Forms just proves that once more.
