Securus Technologies is a private company that is based in Dallas, Texas. The company offers inmates monitoring, biometric analysis, public information and self-service solutions to prisoners in the United States and Mexico. The company has achieved a lot since it was established in the market several years ago.
Securus Technologies has been working hard to mutually negotiate financial agreements and arrangements with organizations that have been utilizing its rights without proper licensing for a while. The private organization was willing to agree on some reasonable licensing with the parties involved, including their greatest competitor, Global Tel. However, GTL went ahead and published some information on Securus Technologies patents after their transactions.
According to a recent press release from Securus Technologies, Global Tel had issued a statement to the public that was inaccurate and at the same time misleading. Global Tel had made it clear that they will be engaging Securus in a licensing fight. The management at Securus Technologies decided to issue a statement to its consumers in order to clarify and also correct the claims by GTL.
Securus Technologies and Global Tel have been having differences for some time now. Earlier this year, Securus announced that it was going to announce some of the wrongdoings taking place in GTL. GTL is believed to have been cheating the inmates by charging them with very high-interest rates. Some inmates were being charged double the amount indicated by the organization, and this did not go well with their competitors.
Communication is very important for the individuals who are incarcerated, and it was unfair for Global Tel to overcharge its clients. This was also giving the industry a bad reputation, and it needed to be exposed. Without adequate communication, it is impossible for these individuals to become good citizens and abandon their wicked ways.
