RESTON, Va., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- GTL, the leading provider of correctional technology solutions and an innovator in payment services solutions for government, today reaffirms that across the nation correctional facilities continue to see immediate and long-term benefits from the use of GTL's OMS.
GTL OMS is a comprehensive enterprise system that manages the lifecycle of incarcerated individuals from intake through release. It also features a full inmate trust accounting package along with audit tools that can help facilities with their compliance needs. This powerful software solution, built on an open architecture platform, integrates seamlessly with GTL's inmate telephone platform, facility kiosks, and tablets as well as a wide array of third-party systems such as law record management systems, courts systems, electronic medical records systems, victim notification systems, commissary suppliers and more.
"For over 25 years, GTL's OMS has been the system correctional facilities have counted on for workflow alignment, ease of use, versatile reporting capabilities, and rock-solid reliability," said John Lowry, Senior Product Manager, Product Management at GTL. "Now in its third generation, with version 5.3 having been released in March 2016, our OMS uses state-of-the-art web-based technology to deliver a user experience that has made it the number one jail management system in the U.S. county corrections market. GTL's OMS solves five areas of concern for correctional facilities: safety, welfare, compliance, risk mitigation and efficiency. We look forward to releasing later this year OMS version 5.4 with added features."
There are more than 300 correctional facilities nationwide under contract for GTL's OMS solution, which is nearly three times greater than any other provider in the market has for their solution. The GTL Offender Management System manages data for one out of every four inmates in county and privately-operated facilities contracted by GTL in the U.S.
Recently, Spokane County, Washington, mentioned in the news how their jail operations have improved over the past few years, crediting the use of data, including information available through their offender management system.
GTL works closely with each customer to ensure their OMS system is configured to meet their exact and unique requirements. Hardware, software, reporting tools and even screen settings are all configured to match the system to the facility's unique needs. "Because it is built on open technology, which can easily be integrated with other systems, GTL's OMS provides a single point of entry that still allows individual ownership of data," added Lowry.
GTL is the leading provider of integrated correctional technology solutions, delivering financial value, security, and ease of operation to our customers through visionary products and solutions at the forefront of corrections innovation. As a trusted correctional industry leader, GTL provides service to approximately fifty percent of inmates nationwide, including service to 33 state departments of corrections, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 32 of the largest city/county facilities. GTL is headquartered in Reston, Virginia, with more than 10 regional offices across the country. To find out more about GTL, please visit our website www.gtl.net.
