Securus Technologies Introduces a ConnectUs Application to the Corrections Market

At Securus Technologies, we are saving clients time and money by integrating our Grievance application and Inmate Forms on ConnectUs. We operate on a philosophy of serving and connecting. Our main agenda is to set new standards of distinction in the corrections market.

Russell Roberts’ opinions

Russell Roberts believes that Securus is headed in the right direction. He gives the Grievance Application and Inmate Forms as one of the examples of our dedication to providing high-quality services. Russell heads our Marketing and Strategy division. As the division’s Vice President, he is in charge of our investment strategies.

Correctional agencies utilize paper forms for many inmate requests including medical, sign up forms, grievances, and handbook acceptance forms. The correctional administrators/officer spend a lot of time issuing, assembling, longing, copying, routing, filing and storing forms.

About the ConnectUs application

This innovative application allows inmates to access customized forms. The process of changing the form is easy and time conscious. It does not involve any form of printing. The ConnectUs application converts manual paper procedures to digital automation. The application is making a significant difference for clients. Automation of these processes allows the correctional facilities to focus on other important matters such improving safety and security. Detainees can access the forms on a self-service basis, check out the status of grievances, and accept or file an appeal.

Why Is The Securus Setup Best For Our Nonprofit?

We have set up an entire nonprofit around helping people who are in prison, but we have been in need of a system that helps us reach out o prisoners who are not near us. It is nice to be on the Securus app, and I actually put it on every single device that we own. It was much easier for us to see the people we were working with, and it helped us to put a personal touch on the services that we provided. That meant that we were talking to people who could see that there was a live person who cared.

We are all about caring, and we want to show the prisoners that they have someone who can help them. We want to be sure that all the people that we work with feel cared for, and we want them to know that they have a place to go when they get out. Released prisoners who are not able to get any help do not do well, and that is why we have set up our nonprofit to help these people. We want to be right there when they get out, but they have to know our faces first.

The video calls that we do at Securus [see their BBB page] are very helpful in that they help us get to know everyone we work with. We can go get them when they get out, and we can teach them a lot of things about the way that they can manage their lives once they are out. We want people to feel like they can function once they get out, and we want these people to know that there is a place to go until they get back on their feet. The only way to do that is to call in to them with Securus.
