There are more than 2,600 contracts under the management of the Securus Technologies team. The organization has up to 1,000 employees working on services for a variety of clients. Securus is built to grow and adjust to the changes in the market. It is paving the way for other organizations in the field.
GovPayNet was acquired by Securus Technologies to broaden the company’s range within the criminal technology industry. GovPayNet is a well-established organization. It specializes in payment services to government agencies. GovPayNet provides the ability to pay fines issued by the court, speeding tickets, parking violations and real estate property tax. It is currently operating with 2,300 agencies in 35 States. GovPayNet has a broad operating base that covers 26% of all US counties.
JPay was acquired by Securus Technologies as the company continues to push forward. JPay increases the ability to provide clients with every necessary aspect of running their operations. It is a strong organization that offers electronic payments, emails and entertainment to correctional facilities. JPay is currently operating in 33 States throughout the country. The JPay business model will add to the bottom line services that Securus already provides to correctional facilities and law enforcement bureaus.
Securus Technologies is expecting the acquisitions of GovPayNet and JPay to open up its market share within criminal technology. Both of these companies will continue to operate as subsidiary brands. However, they will benefit greatly from the resources that come with being affiliated with a large company such as Securus Technologies.
