Video visitation is a technology that we at Securus Technologies are encouraging people to try. Other than going physically to penitentiaries, we are encouraging inmates and their kin to try out this video system. This does not mean that all physical visitations should cease, rather the video system should be a complement.
At secures, we are determined to spread the good news of the video visitation technology. This technology ensures that though inmates are doing time, they are not locked out of the affections of their loved ones. There are those who wish they could visit their loved ones more, but are unable to do so due to the cost involved. So far we have been able to connect over 160,000 visits.
Nothing beats the physical touch, but when this cannot be realized we offer something close to that. This way, instead of no visit at all, inmates can enjoy video visitation. Now, the special days do not have to ignite memories of those who are absent.
Although this system appears closely related to skype and video chat features of social interaction, it is way better. This system ensures that the possibility of interference is nil. This means that we have a secure system and as such clients need not worry that their conversations may be recorded, disseminated, or listened in to by third parties.
While we have 160000 monthly visits to our name, we boast of close to 2 million connections yearly. The relative cost of $2.72 has drawn many so that now we are offering this service to 178 state run agencies in US. Through mobile applications there are a number of people who have been able to connect with loved ones: 110,000 to be exact.
We are based in Dallas, Texas. We offer additional services as above indicated to ensure a tamper proof system. So far close to 3500 agencies are benefiting from our services.
