Information technology is changing fast today, and there are new ways of communication popping up to redefine the way we communicate with each other. In correctional facilities, communication could be more complicated without the innovations brought by the new technologies which have enabled inmates and their families and relatives to communicate remotely. Securus Technologies, a company, based in Dallas, Texas has exploited the new technology to ensure the correctional facilities make use of these technologies to improve inmate communication, investigations, public safety and monitoring activities.
Securus Technologies serves about 3000 firms and agencies, and it’s one of the biggest companies providing tech solutions to organizations in the law enforcement and corrections. Securus has managed to release the 3.1 version of THREADS, a solution that is about to change how data is corrected, managed and how the agencies make their decisions. The new version of THREADS has data analytical tools that will ease the process of information collection in the U.S.
According to PR Newswire, the release of 3.1 will allow for direct integration between the Secure Call Platform (SCP) and the Securus products enabled by the upgrade of the software platform from Silverlight to HTML 5. Securus has ensured that the new upgrade will be utilizing big data analytics to provide the users or the investigators with actionable and focused intelligence. Tools such as linkage charts furnished by the 3.1 version will deliver a visual presentation and accelerated manipulation. Also, the latest version 31 has data import tools that will help the investigators to create some form of uniformity while they import internal and external data.
THREADS 3.1 has an enhanced user control of workspace to support importing of inmate financial transaction apart from the traditional cell forensics and communications. According PR Newswire’s article about Robert Pickens, Securus Technologies has positioned itself as the leader in providing tech solutions aimed at enhancing the work of public safety agencies, corrections and law enforcement agencies. The aim of Securus Technologies is to help its clients do their job better and easier with the new tech solution.
Kelly Solid, the General Manager and Acting Product Manager of Threads commented the new 3.1 release saying that even before 3.1 was released, v2.0 was still the most powerful analytical tool in the market. Securus Technologies also offers other services such as bio metric analysis and incident management. To reach out many of its clients, the company has recently hired John Bell as the senior sales executive to create a highly qualified software based team.
