When one is locked-up in a correctional facility one thing they wish for is to get in-touch with the outside world. Essentially, the fundamental aim when an authority decides to jail someone is so that that person can reform and become a useful part of the society in future. The mental growth of a prisoner is important both for him or herself and the nation at large. Telmate LLC is one technology company that has made this possible for the last ten years. The company develops tech products that enable inmates to interact with their folks and to make good use of their time while in the cells. Today, the firm serves over 2.2 million inmates held in jails and prisons across the United States.
For as much as interactions of inmates with the outside world are important, it is not lost to Telmate that the same can be a recipe for criminal activities. Some inmates misuse the privileges accorded to them by making illegal deals over the phones. With this in mind, Telmate designs a calling platform that can be monitored by officials. As a matter of fact, jail officials attest to the fact that Telmate has made their job of collecting intelligence much easier.
Telmate stands out among all of its competitors because of a handful of reasons. To begin with, the company was the first to design a system where inmates leave voice messages to their family and friends. Secondly, Telmate has a system in place where inmates make international calls, including using social apps such as Skype. Thirdly, its call rates are FCC compliant and are inarguably the lowest in the industry. Another key point to note is that the firm’s depositing system is fast, convenient, and reliable. Clients make deposits through several platforms, including online and through mobile applications. Lastly and most importantly, Template is soon going to be the first tech company to introduce phone calls over tablets in correctional facilities.
