Securus Technologies has launched the sPhone. This is in response to the need by most correctional facilities to upgrade their telecommunication systems. It was launched last made last month and reported on PRNewswire.
The launch of the newest inmate hardware came as a surprise to many people. Securus Technologies is known for providing software solutions. This new area of business will see the company expand its sources of revenue and its client base. With the aging inmate phones, many correctional facilities are expected to purchase the sPhone.
Securus Technologies has praised the new hardware as the product needed by correctional facilities. This is because it is easy to install and can use telephone terminals available in prisons. Consequently, the upgrades will be made with minimal interruptions to prisons activities across the United States.
Over the years, many correctional facilities have been satisfied by the services offered by Securus Technologies. These services have resulted in the transformation of the correctional facilities through provision of new methods of communication, new investigative solutions and modern jail operational processes. Securus’s services have guaranteed the security of prison staff, inmates, and the public.
Unlike other working environments, security guards must escort technicians working inside a prison. With thousands of feet of telephone power cables in some correctional facilities, it will take months to replace the old copper terminals with new AC powered terminals. This will leave the correctional facilities with inadequate staff to cater for their inmates. However, the sPhone has solved this problem. The phone is designed to use the existing copper lines, meaning that the installations will made extremely fast.
During its launch, Russell Roberts, Securus’ Vice President of Marketing & Strategy, said that the phone runs on ConnectUs. The software, developed by Securus, will enable the phone to offer all the current telecommunication services and add more when the need arises. The software will also enable inmates to enjoy self-help and educational applications. This information was originally reported on PRNewswire as provided in the following link
