Securus Technologies – ConnectUs Automated Forms

Securus Technologies, one of the leading providers of inmate communications, parolee tracking and government information has introduced a time and money saving service. It is the automation of inmate grievance applications and other forms. Changing these forms from paper to electronic applications will reduce the time spent processing the requests. The platform used is called ConnectUs.

ConnectUs will reduce the work formerly involved. Because forms are on paper, corrections officers are currently responsible for each step of the implementing process. The paperwork includes medical forms, sign-up forms, grievances and handbook acceptance forms. This wide range of paperwork must be distributed, collected and then routed to the correct authorities. These applications and grievances must be logged and a response must be given. They are also copied, filed and then finally archived and stored.

Rather than having corrections officers perform all this work, ConnectUs simplifies the whole process by changing from the physical movement of forms to the electronic transfer of them using the platform. Because the forms are now digital, the application can be accessed online. Inmates can follow-up on the status of a form with self-service options. Using the self-service set-up, the inmate can check the form’s status online and accept or appeal the decisions online too.

Each institution can have forms developed that suit their particular needs. Each institution has complete control over the content of the forms available for the inmates to access. Included in the system is a digital bulletin board that allows corrections staff to leave notes for the inmates. This allows for more efficient communications. The digital platform also allows for translations in different languages.

Reducing the work load processing inmate forms creates makes ConnectUs an excellent choice for Securus Technologies to implement. Money will be saved by lessening the workload and paper costs. Less time will be wasted as well. Most importantly, the prison population which is rarely content, will now have one less complaint as their concerns will be addressed in a faster more expedient manner through the digitized processing of inmate forms.
