Man the more research I do this man more tired I get just thinking of all the amazing things this man has done. First of all he has gone to Rochester school for his mba and his associates’ degree in technology. He also has gone to buffalo New York to get a bachelor’s degree in engineering, masters in engineering from state university of New York. From 1972 to 1998 Rick Smith held roles of controller and chief information officer with global crossing North America inc. Then from 1998-2000 he works at Eschelon telecom INC. as the chief financial officer. From 2000-2003 he was the company president than promoted to CEO in that time frame he increased the company’s revenue from 30 million dollars to 350 million dollars. Which in a matter of 3 years I couldn’t even imagine that much Money in a company in that short of a time. Summer of 2005 Rick smith led the company to a successful Ipo. He stayed with the company until 2007.
Than in 2008 he was hired into Securus technology as a president and CEO, and then became companies chairman in January 2009. So many articles so that this company is so happy to have hired him and that if this company succeeds it’s going to be because of him being in charge.
I’m sorry I’m getting ahead of myself Securus is a company that was in Dallas, Texas. The company provides a wide range of services like monitoring, biometric analysis, incident management, and emergency response communications. This company services more than 1 million inmates and 2600 corrections. The leadership under Rick Smith Securus performs 600 percent better than their competitor Global Tel Link. If the man can’t be any better of a leader from 2013-2016 the company invested in over 600 million dollars with patients, technologies and acquisitions. I thought this man couldn’t do any better than his company before Securus. This man is still young and this man can still do so much I couldn’t even imagine what he could do next. Maybe go back to school for more degrees. Maybe make the company more money than you could even count. Maybe he could even branch off and make his own company and be a billionaire. For this man life is endless. Check this article at Bloomberg.com to know more about Rick Smith.
Securus Technologies is a company that represents individuals who are normally not represented within America. This primarily includes incarcerated individuals who are currently serving time for past mistakes. These individuals, just like any other American citizen, would like to have the ability to openly communicate with their family members and loved ones who are not facing the same prison time as they are. Even though visitation time is available to these people to see their families normally these situations aren’t comfortable and require a lot of time to develop properly. In order to avoid these problems Securus Technologies has devised a series of different services and products to suit these customer needs. Products such as a free downloadable application for mobile devices offer seamless streaming technology for video conference abilities. This not only makes communication between these two parties efficient and effective, but it also means that inmates are able to relax even when they are still being locked away. Unfortunately with all of these positive points for the company Securus has recently taken fire from another company, GTL, who has accused Securus of having expired patents on their products.
GTL, having released a multitude of different spreadsheets to the internet a few months back, was assumed to have information regarding these patent expiration dates. Most of these patents were for products that secure is currently has in circulation with the customers, and if found to be true would have caused a major problem for the corporation as a whole. Fortunately for Securus this information has proven to be inaccurate and the accusations against them has been taken away. It is safe to say that Securus Technologies has to be a reliable and customer based Corporation, following its Niche customer base for many years to come.
I read an article about Securus Technologies, an organization that provides civil and criminal justice technology for corrections, public safety, monitoring and investigation, and how they released a report that highlighted wrongdoings by the company Global Tel Link, a provider of inmate communications solutions.
That is not a bad thing though because this will likely lead to GTL acting with better integrity. At least that’s what Securus thinks. In regards to the report, some of the things mentioned was how GTL programmed clocks in the phones at various correctional facilities to add 15-36 seconds to the total length of each call.
The article goes on to discuss how Securus’ report claimed that Global Tel Link overcharged taxpayers in Louisiana more than $1.2 million. The Louisiana PSC investigated GTL actions, and came to the conclusions that they were engaging in the practice of double billing phone calls.
The company is known for providing quality and innovative solutions to their customers, so it is almost certain they will make any necessary changes.
