There is one clear technology leader in the law enforcement and public safety sector. That is Securus Technologies. They have been in business since 1986 and have been creating and developing new technologies ever since. The company currently holds over 100 patents and is always working to expand on what they currently have as well as to create something new.
For twenty years and counting, GovPayNet provided card processing services to government agencies. These systems allowed the agencies to receive payment for items such as probation fines, traffic tickets, record fees, and child support by using a credit or debit card. In the past, all that could be accepted was a cash payment. With the services that GovPayNet provided, customers now had more options when it came to payment.
At a recent announcement, Securus Technologies announced that they were acquiring GovPayNet. The CEO and President of Securus stated that he was very excited for this merger. He stated that GovPayNet has a stellar company record, and they have served their customers well. By adding their services to the long list of services already provided by Securus Technologies, they will be able to expand their brand and expand what they can provide to their customers. It is estimated that they will be able to process over 40 million payments annually.
Securus Technologies has already proven themselves to be an industry leader. By adding the services that GovPayNet has to offer, Securus can now provide the full-service treatment to their customers. GovPayNet being a positive force coming in will allow Securus Technologies to move forward and on to bigger and better things down the road. Their customers will definitely benefit from this acquisition.
