Securus Technologies and GTL Face-Off – Setting the Facts Straight

Startups in numerous industries have been giving established giant corporations a run for their money thanks to their innovative approaches. In the civil and criminal technology industry, Securus Technologies, a relatively young company, has challenged giant GTL to a ‘technology face-off’.

Securus Technologies seems very confident that it will win and has already outlined all its strengths compared to GTL.

 

All Factors on the Table

Securus Technologies claims that it has overtaken its main competitor GTL in every aspect. It has even taken the liberty of highlighting factors that judges should consider when evaluating the companies’ performances. And, although this may seem audacious of the company, it is fascinating to see that the highlighted areas cover virtually every aspect of each company.

Product set – which is the best and largest?

Telephone calling platform – considering modern technology

The quality of customer care services

 

A quality and capital efficient platform

Securus Technologies’ confidence is largely based on its state-of-the-art technology. Like in most other industries, modern technology is a determinative competitive factor as it guarantees better quality services. Securus Technologies is relatively new compared to GTL, and it is constantly upgrading its technology. In fact, it claims that it has ploughed back over $700 million of its revenues into the company.

Looking at the numbers, Securus Technologies has nothing to prove as it is already giving GTL a run for its money. It loses about $1 to GTL, but it then makes back $4 for each dollar lost; it is well on its way to dominating the market. However, the company’s founder and CEO Richard Smith felt that he had to confront GTL for its claims that it was better than Securus Technologies.

 

Richard Smith was so confident that he urged GTL to save its face and turn down the challenge. However, the latter has not yet responded; hence the possibility of a face-off cannot be ruled out.

The Quincy Shootings

The Quincy Apartments at 120 Neilson Street located in New Brunswick, NJ with approximately 200 apartments, have had multiple shootings. One, on May 7th of 2013 was a phony phone call for a pizza delivery. The gentleman delivering the pizza was leaving the apartment where the lessee said he never ordered pizza when three men surprised him, held him at gun point, and stole his money, his wallet and the pizza.

Officials took four months to solve the crime, but, due to persistence, found the man responsible for the pizza order due to technological footprints and was then able to trace the other perpetrators. One young man, the twenty-one year leader of the robbery, Parysh Wood, charged with robbery where prosecutors expect further arrests and convictions.

Shootings, theft, illegal weapons, and crime have become common place in the Quincy apartments. Another shooting on October 7th, 2015 where four gun shots were heard leaving one man hospitalized.

On January 24th, 2017 police are still watching the Quincy as suspects have been reported to commit a string of robberies while the victims are robbed walking from their cars to their home. The last incident was an unarmed robbery where the suspects are not similar in appearances. An even more recent robbery left a woman held at gunpoint while leaving the Dollar Tree. The difference in this robbery is the woman was walking form work to her car versus from her car to home. However, police are still trying to determine if these robberies are related and solve the crimes.

As the investigation continues, police ask anyone with information regarding these robberies to call 617-745-5766.

My Husband And I Are Very Happy That We Worked With Ignition Financial

It was on my husband’s idea to get a car from a dealership that I felt was not on the level. They had inflated prices, they lied about the conditions of their cars, and we were suckers enough to end up buying one. Unfortunately, even with the lies that the dealership told us, we were still stuck paying for the vehicle that was having one problem after another because we signed up with an outside lender. Taking the company to court only got us back a small percentage of the money we had paid on the car, so we had very few options.

 

Our monthly payments were pretty high, so it was my idea to refinance the loan. I told my husband that if we refinanced the loan with the right people that we not only would be able to lower our rates, we’d also be able to take any additional money that we save to get another car. We both needed our own car because it was too much for us to be going back and forth to each other’s job on a daily basis, but we were paying $500 a month for the car payments alone, not to mention $100 monthly for insurance.

 

Ignition Financial made every bit of difference in our lives, and it’s all because they have such professional people who know all about the refinancing process. If it wasn’t for a friend who told us about Ignition Financial, we would have never known about them. I put in an application online, and I completed everything by going down to see them in person. My husband wasn’t willing to go because he honestly didn’t think we would qualify for refinancing that was substantial, but was he ever wrong.

 

I was hoping that Ignition Financial was going to be able to slash my payments, but they did me one better by slashing the payments in half. Ignition Financial was able to find us a lender that made the payments go from almost $500 a month down to just under $250 a month. When I called my husband to give him the good news, he was eager to sign the paperwork and came down to the office with a big smile on his face. We signed the paperwork, and the extra savings has allowed us to purchase another vehicle, so Ignition Financial really saved us money.
