Correctional facilities are always busy. Prisons in the United States are overcrowded, and there’s seldom time to upgrade systems such that they correspond to changing social and technological climates. As a result, paperwork is still a primary means by which information is collected and sorted in many correctional facilities today. This antiquated method of operations takes many many hours and costs resources as well as storage. ConnectUs Automated Forms by Securus Technologies has been engineered specifically to streamline this process such that no time is wasted, resources are curtailed, and storage space can be freed up.
Securus Technologies has been working with correctional institutions for thirty years. Starting in 1986, this organization has expanded from their Texas inception point to a nationwide operation that assists some 2,600 facilities on a regular basis. Considering the size of the company is only 500 to 1000 employees, this becomes especially astonishing. But, as an Information Technology provider, Securus definitely knows their business–especially when it comes to correctional facilities; about which intimate infrastructural details are known by Securus, allowing them to engineer platforms with an informed approach.
ConnectUs Automated forms additionally provides inmates to applications and features like never before, while still giving facilities the ability to meter which content is and is not available. This way no unauthorized information is spread, but educational parameters are expanded. Inmates can obtain the education they were unable to achieve without being incarcerated via Securus Technologies.
Recidivism in the United States is high, and one reason for that is a lack of true rehabilitation during incarceration. Securus has created something that can help the recidivism trend to decline by providing education which can lead to gainful employment after a term is completed. Meanwhile, facilities can consolidate resources, space, and time. Hopefully true positive change results from ConnectUs’ innovation.
