Securus Technologies is a leading company as far as communication in correction facilities is concerned. The company has availed several services to prisons that range from monitoring, safety to investigations. Securus has been in the headlines for correcting information released by GTL. Global Tel Technologies published information through a press release. Securus Technologies have revealed the information as false, misleading, and illogical. Global Tel Link made a press statement concerning various patents. Securus Technologies came out to provide clarification on the information and to correct the claims.
Securus Technologies insisted that Global Tel Link knows that patents and litigation take years and millions of dollars to pursue. The lawsuit approach undertaken by GTL is thus questionable. One can wonder if the approach is in the best interest of the company. Securus Technologies has determined to defend themselves from any allegations made by GTL. Securus Technologies has advised GTL to stop picking fights with other companies. As an alternative, the company should strive to gain more patents and licenses. Securus Technologies revealed that GTL had only 51 patents while Securus had 150 patents.
During the press release, Richard Smith expressed his love for the correction industry. He stated that he has enjoyed working with the correction facility community. However, he was offended by companies like GTL which strive to ruin other company’s reputation just to get ahead of the competition. He insisted that instead of publishing false information everywhere, the company should air out their differences in a meeting. GTL acted below the integrity line when it decided to release false information. Rick Smith stated the Securus Technologies is out there to make profits. However, the company puts its customers above the company’s interests. GTL has been caught in several misconducts in the past. The company stated that it would release misconducts released by the firm.
