Securus Technologies announced a challenge to a company considered its main competitor. Securus Technologies challenged Global Tel Link, or GTL, to submit to an independent technology judge. The purpose will be to determine which company possesses the most expansive and best solution set. The challenge is also to determine which company has the most modern high-tech and sophisticated telephone calling solution on the market. In addition, the evaluation will include a consideration of which company has the most capital as well as the most cost effective solutions. The evaluation is also to take into account customer service metrics.
Securus Technologies, through its Chief Executive Officer, Richard A. Smith, maintains that GTL has not been accurate in describing its solutions as being better than those offered by Securus Technologies. The drive for an independent evaluation is to assist Securus Technologies in debunking what it considered to be inaccurate boosting by GTL.
Securus Technologies is based in Dallas, Texas. The company currently serves over serving 3,450 public safety, law enforcement and corrections agencies across the United States. This includes agencies on the federal, state, and local level. The company continues to expand its client list on a consistent basis.
The company provides services to over 1,200,000 inmates throughout North America. This includes services and solutions provided by the company and all of its subsidiaries. GTL does not serve nearly as many inmates or offenders of other statuses as does Securus Technologies at this juncture in time.
At the heart of all of the solutions provided through Securus Technologies is safety and security for the general population. The company is an industry leader in this regard.
