Dallas, TX —/PRNewswire/-- Securus
Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of inmate communications services, today
is introducing a fully integrated inmate communications platform with Swanson
Services Corporation. Swanson
Services Corporation is a leading provider of end to end commissary and
financial software used within corrections facilities nationwide.
The typical correctional
facility environment will have the following systems or applications:
- Inmate Telephone System which allows inmates to place
collect or debit phone calls
- Jail Management System which tracks the booking,
releasing, and moving of inmates
- Commissary and/or Trust Account system which allows inmates
to purchase commissary items and related services
inmate information in all three systems can be challenging. With the Securus/Swanson
partnership, information is easily and seamlessly integrated throughout the
different platforms, in real time.
This automated information sharing helps prevent errors and allows facility
staff to focus on other tasks. Other commissary and telephone providers rely
solely on scheduled processes which can delay the transfer of important information,
delay money being transferred between accounts, and cause errors in the overall
booking and release process within correctional facilities.
Securus/Swanson integration also provides facilities with multiple ways to implement
popular products and services.
Correctional facilities can take advantage of the inmate phone system to
enable inmates to order commissary items without staff intervention and inmates
can purchase phone time and manage their accounts in real time.
“The Securus/Swanson integration certainly demonstrates the
power of services and technology leadership for both companies,” said Adam
Edwards, Senior Product Development Manager for Securus’ Secure Call Platform (SCP).
“When both providers are working hard for our customers, our customers always
