Securus Technologies is one of the leading providers of criminal and civil justice technology services for investigations, monitoring, and corrections. Just recently, the company decided to issue corrections to a press release that was issued by one of its main competitors, Global Tel. The press release was issued this year in May, but Securus Technologies felt that it was misleading to the public.
Securus Technologies had previously released a statement announcing the Patent Trial and Appeal Board had decided to validate twenty-five claims out of the twenty-seven. This was a true victory for Securus Technologies, but GTL decided to issue a statement that was clearly misleading. According to the management in Securus, the inaccurate statements is already in public, and it was important to correct it and provide clarification to the consumers.
Richard Smith is the Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technologies, and he says that the decision by GTL did not come as a surprise to them. Smith says that it was easy for GTL to mischaracterize the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ruling. This was a move by GTL to prove that Securus Technologies did not have adequate technologies, and the software development was not enough. However, the idea did not work.
Securus Technologies is headquartered in Texas, and it offers its services to over three thousand law enforcement, public safety and correction agencies in the United States. The privately held institution provides its services to more than one million inmates in Northern America, and it is recognized for providing inmates with the high-quality services at affordable rates. Since the company was founded, it has done its best to ensure that prisoners in the country communicate with their loved ones using the latest technologies. The company has introduced visitation options for the inmates, making visitation better and more affordable for the families and loved ones.
