ConnectUs Automated Forms is a new platform recently launched by Securus Technologies of Texas. Securus Technologies caters to some 1.2 million inmates across the US, each of which average about 13.8 complaints and grievances forms a month. Those inmates wrack up quite a few additional forms on a monthly basis, too; which is why for years Securus has been working on a means of consolidating that information into a digital system that can handle the load. ConnectUs has arrived as a result, and represents a customizable set of digital storage and filing which has basically unlimited potential. It has a bevy of applications whose scope is rather wide, and have enough customization undergirding them that they too are essentially infinite. Inmates can file a form and monitor its progress live, if it’s within their rights to do so. Correctional facilities can meter exactly how much use a prisoner may or may not be privy to. Restrictions and allowances are entirely customizable to the client’s wish, as per Securus‘ intention. Nurses at correctional facilities have already shown an ecstatic response to the new software. Especially on the medical side of things, paperwork can get pretty monstrous.
Securus Technologies have always had a prime focus on ensuring the most cutting-edge options available be developed to suit the needs of their clients. For a small company (between 500 and 1000 employees, according to LinkedIn), Securus has a national impact that could end up being socially positive in more ways than one. If millions can be saved every year on infrastructural paperwork, that money can be allocated to improved rehabilitation programs which release inmates back into society at statistically lowered rates of recidivism. At least, that’s the hope. Time is the only thing that can really tell on such a score; but with ConnectUs Automated Forms, additional budgetary means will definitely be available to correctional facilities in the days to come.
