Securus Technologies is planning to venture into new industries. The company is one of the leading communications providers inside the prison and other related facilities. Through the years of operation, Securus Technologies managed to expand their business to include more than 3,500 correctional institutions in the United States and Canada, and they are currently serving more than one million inmates. They are providing them with services that allow the inmates to call outside the correctional facility, although every call is heavily monitored. However, it seems like Securus Technologies is going to expand their business to include other areas of industry, and they have already begun by acquiring GovPayNet earlier this year. The acquisition of GovPayNet made headlines all across the United States, prompting the question how Securus Technologies would want to manage their business and what other ventures they are planning to partake in.
GovPayNet is the leading payment platform in more than 26% of the counties across the United States. The platform is being used to pay for real estate taxes and property taxes, and it can also be used to pay for fines and bails. The platform accepts credit and debit payments, and it goes directly to the funds of the government. The platform is fast and efficient, which is why it gained more users since it was established by a brilliant sheriff in 1997.
Robert E. Pickens, Securus Technologies’ newest chief executive officer, who is also serving as the company’s president, is proud to say that with the acquisition of GovPayNet, Securus Technologies will now be able to process more than 40 million payments annually. Robert E. Pickens also expressed his gratitude to all of the people who are showing their continued support for Securus Technologies. They promised their loyal customers that the company would deliver more improvements, and all they have to do is to wait and see.
