Securus Streamlines Branding, Changes Evercom Name to Securus Technologies, Inc.
Press Release Dec 24, 2010
Dallas, TX —/PRNewswire/-- Securus Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of inmate communications services, today announced the company is in the process of changing the name of its operating entity, Evercom Systems, Inc. to Securus Technologies, Inc. This name change is neither a merger nor a transfer of assets among companies and will not affect the services that facilities or friends and family members of inmates receive in any way. Rather, this initiative will consolidate Securus’ branding under the Securus Technologies, Inc. name.
In December 2010, Securus completed filings for all required document changes at both state and federal agencies and is awaiting the approval from a small number of state regulatory commissions. The company has also mailed letters to its affected customers providing them with formal notice of the change.
Additionally, in January 2011, Securus plans to:
- Change calls branded with the Evercom Systems, Inc. name to the Securus Technologies, Inc. name; and
- Redirect customers from www.correctionalbillingservices.com to www.securustech.net to access their accounts.
“The steps we are taking with this name change will take the Securus brand to a new level of recognition,” said Robert Pickens, Securus’ Chief Operating Officer. “And as always, we will continue to provide our customers with the best service and as many programs as possible to assist them in managing call activity.”
