Securus Technologies, a communications provider for law enforcement, government and corrections recently expanded its payment services by acquiring GovPayNet. GovPayNet’s services over 26% of the United States. The Chief Executive Officer of Securus notes that GovPayNet is a quality organization and Securus Technologies will greatly benefit from its acquisition.
GovPayNet processes debit and credit card transactions. Consumers can use their services to pay bails, court fines and associated costs, speeding and parking violations, traffic tickets, cash bail and property and real estate taxes. Over 2,300 agencies use GovPayNet to process payments for their organizations.
Now Securus can add GovPayNet to the group of services already available to their local, state and government clients. GovPayNet was built by Mark MacKenzie and team. It’s been noted that the resulting company offers excellent customer service, a high quality group of solutions and good customer satisfaction after 20 years in business. By adding GovPayNet, Securus can now process over 40 million payments yearly.
Securus plans to add JPay to their roster of services. This segment of business will allow Securus to process payments expanding Securus’ share of the payment processing market. Mark MacKenzie of GovPayNet looks forward to adding both Securus and JPay into their network of influence, so they can expand while continuing to provide quality services.
GovPayNet was founded in 1997 by an ex-sheriff who sought to process payments for law enforcement related costs: payments for probation oversight, electronic monitoring, restitution, towing and impound fees, records fees, publicly administered child support and department of revenue payments.
Securus Technologies is headquartered in Carrolton, Texas. Now that it has combined forces with GovPayNet, it can readily expand on the 1,200,000 inmates in its 3,500 public safety, law enforcement and corrections facilities across the U.S. Securus Technologies offers a full suite of technology to the professional staff, inmates and their loved ones dependent upon their services.
