Securus technologies recently signed a deal to purchase JPay. A prison payment system founded in Miami Florida. The company (JPay) is a provider of payment, email and other electronic services to prisons across the United States. Japay CEO Ryan Shapiro (who has since been replaced by Errol Feldman) is excited about the mission and is eager for the company to expand its footprint in the prison service providers market. The terms of the deal were kept secret as was the cost of purchase. With the merger, the two companies have expanded their reach across the US and are able to capture a wider client base with which to serve. What’s more, the email service that is being supplied by Securus gives prisoners hope for the future and better access to communicate with loved ones. Rick Smith is truly a wonderful man who offers inmates hope for the future and the outside connections that are needed to maintain or even boost an inmate’s morale, and such communications lessen the chance of recidivism amongst parolees upon their release from prison and what Rick Smith knows.
Rick and his team are committed to serving the industry and providing safe communications to the prisons they serve, but they also care about the community and seek to improve the lives of many who are in need. With JPay joining the family Rick and his team will have a greater chance to support the community through the various charities that JPay supports which include, Kids In Distress of Broward and Palm Beach Counties (a child abuse prevention group) and Prison Library Book Initiative that seeks to improve literacy among the inmate population across the United States of America and Rick Smith’s lacrosse camp.
