Lattice Completes New Video Visitation Installations for Existing Customers
By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor
Lattice Incorporated recently announced the completion of the installation of new video visitation systems at the McIntosh County Jail and Canadian County Jail located in Oklahoma. The latest installations follow the recently completed deployment of Lattice’s Integrated Corrections Operating Network (ICON) at these two facilities in December 2013.
Following the current development, both the correctional facilities in Oklahoma have now increased the number of stations for video visitations. The Canadian County Jail has also inaugurated a new 120 bed facility, which was also installed with the new video visitation systems from Lattice.
In a release, Paul Burgess, CEO of Lattice, said “While we've only been working with these facilities for a short period of time, it's obvious they see the value in our technology, and we're pleased they've chosen to deepen their relationship with us so soon. Over the past four years, we've made substantial inroads in the region, and while we continue to exploit our growing dominance in the Oklahoman corrections market, we're looking to repeat this success in a growing number of additional markets where we've more recently begun operating. With the ease of scalability that we've demonstrated, we're confident we'll see substantial revenue growth in 2014 and beyond.”
Lattice’s ICON, previously installed at both the correctional facilities, is an extensive cloud-based platform designed specifically for penal institutions to efficiently manage inmates’ activities and also features a set of investigative tools for specific applications in correctional facilities. The search feature allows the management of the correction facility as well as external agencies to easily search for an inmate’s records including past crimes, telephone calls, visitations, medical history, associations, incident reports and other relevant information. The other features include point-of-sale kiosks, automated payment processing, video visitations, text messaging, email and modular kiosk facilities. ICON system can be deployed across multiple penal institutions and can be integrated with the systems of multiple agencies.
Lattice Incorporated is engaged in the development of the latest information and communications technology services for prisons and penal institutions across the globe. The company’s flagship solution, ICON, is currently deployed in more than 50 facilities across the US, Canada, Japan, Caribbean and Europe. Lattice’s all-in-one solutions leverage the company’s Nexus platform to provide customized software applications using cloud technology for facilities that require military-grade security for its data and operations.
