Securus Technologies promotes many benefits of video visitation

Securus Technologies, the largest provider of jail and prison services in the U.S., has begun a campaign to spread awareness of its products to those who could most benefit from their use. Securus’ giant product line is aimed at making prisons safer and more efficient while making a difficult time a little more bearable for inmates. It’s best known product is probably its video visitation service. This service has caught on like wildfire in recent years, becoming a great favorite of inmates and their families nationwide.

 

Securus is running ads through various media including television, social media and through Google ads. In addition, it is undertaking an outreach program to directly inform inmates and their loved ones about the compelling benefits of video visitation over traditional in-person visitation. This campaign has been a resounding success, as Securus’ video visitation traffic has nearly doubled in just the last year.

 

 

A long overdue relief for families

 

The modern U.S. prison system has evolved greatly since its inception in the early 19th century. Unfortunately, through all the progress that’s been made things had not gotten much easier for the families of inmates. Most state corrections departments don’t consider an inmate’s city of origin when choosing to which facility they are sent. In practice, this means inmates will often end up hundreds, or in the case of the Federal system, even thousands of miles from their loved ones. Until recently, this meant visitations were often luxuries undertaken only once or twice a year.

 

Securus’ video visitation eliminates the barriers of communication between an inmate and their loved ones. At just $2.72, the price of the average video visitation is often hundreds of times less expensive than in-person visits. Inmates who were previously cut off from their outside life now have hope and goals to strive for, thanks to Securus.

Handy Makes Some Slick Business Decisions to Keep Itself Competitive

Handy probably wouldn’t have survived as long as it has if the founders didn’t put an extra amount of effort into keeping it afloat. The company’s idea is inherently very simple. It hires cleaners and assemblers. It then matches them up with customers that are looking for the services provided. It is said that 90% of startups fail. The reasons for this are usually complicated. Handy’s simple business model was met with some very odd complications that involved situations that were out of the company’s control.

Many people think of the beginning of business startups as a sort of spending spree. Handy managed to raise a huge amount of venture capital, but it wasn’t able to immediately turn it into a profit. That part isn’t very surprising. The company still saw a sharp decline in profits in the middle of 2015. Founders Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua were afraid that this would be their last shot at making sure the business was successful.

Handy ultimately ended up switching gears before the business went completely under. They took a lot of drastic measures to cut costs. They tightened up the bolts on the Handy.com website’s design and implementation. This made it significantly easier and more cost effective to recruit workers. They had to cut costs on virtually every layer of their business model. The issue with Handy in comparison to taxi services like Uber is that cleaning bookings require slightly more forethought. Cleaning services have a high rate of failure because they are thought to be based heavily on referrals between customers. The company maintained a high standard of quality throughout its ups and downs. It ended up replacing human employees with chat bots to save costs. The company’s current focus is on raising more capital. It seeks to continue providing the standard of quality that its customers have come to expect.

Texas Draws Dr. Jennifer Walden Home For Family Life

The life of cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden has taken many different directions, but has now seen her bring her twin sons home to Austin, Texas to enjoy a close family life near her own parents. Dr. Jennifer Walden was brought up in a family where academic achievement was rewarded and led to Dr. Walden following her dentist father and surgical nurse mother into the medical industry; Jennifer Walden still maintains her mother is her role model and hero for the way she successfully juggled work and family.

 

Success seems to have consistently followed Dr. Walden after she made her way onto medical school courses after being placed on a waiting list; Walden did not rest on making her way through the initial stages of medical school, but instead made her way to an impressive surgical fellowship in New York. After completing her studies Dr. Walden quickly made her way to her own practice that she turned into an almost instant success; the achievements Jennifer has achieved include joining the board of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, a published author on an academic and popular level, and a popular television personality.

 

Dr. Jennifer Walden appears to not wish to miss out on any experience in life, and decided she had the need to start a family that would eventually lead her back to the city of Austin, Texas after the birth of her twin sons. One benefit to her own pregnancy Dr. Walden believes she has been given is her ability to discuss the changes she has seen in her own body she can share with the women who make up around 91 percent of those who undergo the cosmetic surgery Dr. Walden specializes in.

 

One of the parts of her life Dr. Walden is comfortable discussing are the reasons she decided she should enter the field of plastic surgery that has in the past and often is still dominated by male surgeons. Dr. Walden explains she has always had an interest in gender studies and equality, which she brings to her practice through her need to help women who often feel a change of image will raise their confidence levels.

Texas Return Sees Dr. Jennifer Walden Striving For Success

An inspiring story is always loved and the life of Dr. Jennifer Walden could no doubt be described as inspiring to the majority of people who have come across this successful Texas based plastic surgeon. Dr. Jennifer Walden has seen her life move in many different directions as she has taken on the roles of trying to rise to the top of one of the often male dominated plastic surgery industry, and achieved her dream of becoming a mother to two sons before deciding the time was right to return to her home city of Austin, Texas to continue her life and career.

 

Reaching the top of the plastic surgery field has not come easily to Jennifer Walden despite the support she received from her dentist father and surgical nurse mother; Jennifer decided she wished to become a surgeon, but was only accepted to medical school after making it onto a waiting list. Instead of buckling under the pressure Dr. Walden set out to prove her worth and eventually made her way to Manhattan where she established her own practice. The decision to have children prompted Dr. Walden to return to Texas to be closer to her family where she could continue her career with an ever growing list of clients.

 

Jennifer Walden admits she is a bit of a novelty for the people who make their way to her Austin, Texas based practice as less than 1,000 of the more than 8,000 board certified plastic surgeons in the U.S. are female. However, Dr. Walden now believes her gender is an advantage as the majority of those undergoing cosmetic surgeries are female and often feel more comfortable seeking the assistance of a female surgeon; Jennifer Walden also works hard to make sure her practice is a non judgment zone where every patient feels comfortable.

 

Dr. Walden works solely in the cosmetic surgery field with much of her practice time spent on face lifts, eye surgeries, and breast augmentations. By sharing her own experiences of a changing body image based on her own pregnancies Dr. Walden has built a successful practice in Austin after deciding this was the best location for her family to enjoy life.
