Securus Technologies is a high end and well-known information technology firm based in Dallas, Texas. The company was originally created in order to offer communications support to security personnel but quickly expanded to meet the needs of prison inmates and their families. Having prisoners as your main customer base offers a number of challenges, one of which is being able to collect monthly subscription fees from clients. Many families who rely on Securus do not have functional bank accounts or credit cards, with usual life hardships to blame. In order to further support their clients and give them the ability to pay more frequently, Securus Technologies has decided to spend some additional money and purchase online financial sensation GovPayNet.
This particular merger will allow Securus Technologies to make a huge dent in the industry, and not only that, but they will also increase the ability to support their customers on a much larger scale. Loyal customers of the corporation will now be able to have peace of mind knowing that Securus Technologies will allow them the ability to be much more flexible on their payment methods. This is great news considering most customers for Securus are family members of prison inmates and do not necessarily have the ability to make payments by credit card. GovPayNet, as a payment provider, allows clients to use payment methods such as pre-paid credit cards, money orders, PayPal, and a variety of other choices. Since there are so many options a customer would be hard pressed to not be able to pay on time.
