For the past decade, one of the leaders in the communication technology industry has been Securus Technologies. The company, which is based in Dallas, Texas, has provided many different services and products to hundreds of different prisons and correctional facilities located all over the country. The products that they develop are used for both convenience and to improve security. The company is considered to be a leader when it comes to providing new innovation to the industry.
The most recent product and service that the company has unveiled in recent years has been the innovative video visitation platform. This platform allows for an inmate to directly face-to-face chat with family member or friend from the prison. The family member or friend can done also communicate with the inmate from the safety of their own home using a tablet computer or other mobile device. This has greatly improved security and experience for all parties involved. While the company knew that it would be a very popular product, the users have come up with unique ways to use the product that wasn’t expected before.
One way that inmates in the facilities are using the video visitation program is to stay connected with their children’s educational advancement. One way that children often suffer while they have incarcerated parents is by no longer receiving the assistance that they need with their homework. Several inmates and facilities have reported that they use the video visitation service to help their kids with homework and provide guidance by reviewing homework assignments wide with their children.
