The upgrade to THREADS 3.1 makes SECURUS more secure and convenient for users
Unveiling of THREADS 3.1
Securus ushered the year 2016 in style with the unveiling of an upgrade of its THREADS investigative software platform to a new 3.1 version and the appointment of a new sales executive. John Bell joined Secures as the senior vice president in charge of sales (http://www.financial-news.co.uk/32705/2016/01/securus-expands-leadership-team-20160112100500/). I feel that both events are a great achievement by Securus, but the unveiling of the new THREADS 3.1 is better news to millions of its users who comprise of investigators, law enforcers, and corrections officers. THREADS was originally developed by Direct Hit Systems which was acquired by Securus in the year 2012, as a way of closing the gap between law enforcement and corrections. It allows investigators to comb through millions of integrated inmate data files conveniently at the comfort of their offices (http://apps.securustech.net/press_listing.asp?press_id=101).
What’s new in Threads 3.1
The THREADS 3.1 upgrade comes with a myriad of benefits for investigators and corrections systems. This new system has better integration with other platforms including the Secure Call Platform (SCP) used to record and retrieve inmate calls. I would associate this better integration with other systems with the switch from plug-in based Silverlight platform to the new standard HTML 5 platform. With this better integration, multiple users can listen to and analyze a call in real time and do other things on the platform at the same time. This new system also allows for better sharing of context-sensitive reports; inmate data is now safer. The customized mapping and printing feature in the new system allows investigators and corrections facilities to track calls made between inmates that could lead to clues to the past and future criminal activity. The system can easily and more accurately identify and report questionable inmate calling patterns, relations that are crucial to investigations.
Users of the THREADS platform have another reason to smile after upgrading to the new system. This system is a lot easier to use than the previous versions. Law enforcers and corrections officers require less training for the new interface is friendlier than in the previous model. This is an easier to use interface and it comes as a boost to investigations for it makes users access actionable intelligence easily.
The threads 3.1 upgrade brings lots of benefits to investigative communities in the criminal and corrections systems. I can’t forget to mention that Securus has made the upgrade free and available automatically to all existing users (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/securus-delivers-the-most-advanced-big-data-analytical-tool-in-corrections-300195882.html). With the new sales executive in place Securus expects that this new, more acceptable system will reach new markets and enhance corrections.
