In a continued attempt made by Securus Technologies, for improved public safety, this firm signed a Stock Purchase Agreement that ensured the acquisition of JPay Inc. This buy out has resulted in JPay to function as a wholly owned subsidiary of Securus Technologies, which can be now considered as the parent company. This merger has not in any way disrupted the operations of JPay. In fact, it has provided this payment and communication platform with added benefits of being associated with the new parent company.
In the recent past, Securus Technologies has also been responsible for creating Wireless Containment Units that ban calls made from inmates using contraband devices. These wireless units also ban calls from unknown numbers to be received by phones while within prison walls. Eight corrections units within the country have embraced this new technology with other jails soon to follow their lead.
According to a recent article posted on PR Newswire, this acquisition has ensured that Securus Technologies gets a lead in sectors such as corrections, payments and public safety. The primary purpose of this buy out, was to combine the two forces to create a better jail system that runs on modern equipment, the latest security and with high tech hardware as well as cutting edge software programs to ensure that the greater good of people’s safety is always put forward.
In another article posted on PR Newswire, it was revealed that Securus Technologies had recently been given an accolade of the highest standard. This accreditation was provided by the Better Business Bureau as Securus Technologies had maintained a clean track record of honest and transparent operations as well as straightforward advertisements. This accolade was also granted because this firm had established an improved call center to deal with customer grievances in the first call itself with an overall customer satisfaction score of 4.3 on a scale of 5.
