Securus Technologies has responded to a press release from GTL. In their response, the company seeks to correct some information which it says that it is not true. The Dallas-based civil and criminal justice technology solutions provider has expressed shock at the information which it terms as misleading.
Clearly misleading statements
Chief executive officer, Richard A. Smith, says that there are multiple errors contained in the press published by GTL. The CEO, therefore, sought to highlight the errors and provide clarifications for the records. One of the facts that he noted was the announcement that GTL would be back in court to seek patent litigation.
Duration of the litigation
While noting that patent litigation usually takes several years to conclude, the CEO wondered if the whole case makes any sense. Securus Technologies has been a leader in providing solutions for public safety corrections, monitoring, and investigations. Over the years, the company has partnered with various other firms to pursue their business models. Mr. Smith says that there has always been a good relationship between Securus Technologies and other companies.
Asserting the company’s patents
According to the CEO, Securus will defend themselves against any attacks even though they remain committed to the best interests of the company as well as good financial practices. While noting that Securus was unquestionably a superior company and that their patent portfolio is far more extensive, Smith wondered why GTL was pursuing such an approach.
Securus Technologies serves an estimated 3,450 law enforcement, public safety and corrections agencies. The company’s commitment to serving and correcting over one million inmates across North America has always been evident with their activities based in Dallas, Texas. This has been aided by a more innovative approach to public safety issues. It is the reason the company has grown significantly over the past few years.
