Correctional facilities see benefits in functionality and applications of GTL Flex Link units
RESTON, Virginia, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GTL, the leading provider of correctional technology solutions and an innovator in payment services solutions for government, announced the nationwide deployment of its 1000th Flex® Link multi-service kiosk unit, increasing GTL's overall kiosk installs to over 10,000.
GTL's Flex Link and Inspire tablet programs are a culmination of GTL's efforts to provide customers with a unified enhanced services platform. "Over the last three years, we have spent millions of dollars redeveloping our service offerings and hardware platforms to ensure correctional facilities can easily offer everything from educational services to video visitation without the burden of hardware and infrastructure changes," said Brian Peters, Executive Director of Inmate Applications & Hardware at GTL. "The Flex Link product was launched less than nine months ago and already over 1,000 Flex Link units have been installed across the nation. It's a testament to our product management, development and service organizations to make this happen in such short time."
The Flex Link's patent-pending design is adaptable to the corrections market, allowing units to be mounted to any pre-existing inmate telephone infrastructure. The slim design of the Flex Link provides a drastically reduced footprint on a correctional facility's wall space. This all-in-one solution integrates some of the most commonly requested inmate services into one secure application – including ordering commissary items and receiving incoming email messages – all while seamlessly interfacing with current facility applications and those from third-party vendors. Utilizing a multi-function device like GTL's Flex Link eliminates the need to have several systems and processes in an inmate pod.
