VisMail “Inmate Email” – Now Available!

Visilinc is proud to announce the addition of VisMail to our robust line of Renovo software solutions. VisMail is a full featured corrections grade software solution which allows inmate access to secure email and helps reduce the costs inherent with traditional inmate mail.

Designed with security in mind, VisMail is the ideal solution for prisons and correctional facilities looking to streamline inmate and visitor communications while maintaining a high level of officer control. VisMail is also a constant revenue stream for facilities who wish to take advantage of the built-in “stamp” system.

Visitors have easy access to the VisMail interface via a link on the facility’s website. Once logged in, visitors are able to view and create email. When the system receives an outgoing message from an inmate, visitors are sent an automated notification to their home email address alerting that they have a message waiting.

The VisMail module quickly scans all email for blacklisted terms and misspellings before being sent for final officer review. Facilities have complete control over their dictionary and banned words list, and can easily set thresholds for rejection and review.

Once an email has been approved, inmates can receive their email in several ways:

eXpress
Correctional facilities can easily integrate VisMail with any Visilinc Video Visitation (IP) system, offering the flexibility and convenience of an “all-in-one” solution. eXpress allows for all visitor and inmate communication to be handled with one easy-to-use software package. Inmates receive and reply to email through a secure Visilinc kiosk terminal, offering the correctional staff a new level of control.

e2Print
Facilities that do not have inmate kiosks can easily print email using Renovo’s e2Print module. VisMail’s automated scanning engine screens all incoming email for suspect words and phrases. Once approved by the correction facility, emails can be easily printed and distributed to inmates. e2Print is a great way to cut down on resources normally reserved for the review and distribution of standard inmate mail.

VisMail Features:

Check1 Secured Inmate Email Revenue generation through customizable stamp charges and packages
Check1 Secured Inmate Email Can be integrated into Renovo’s visitation scheduling and management software
Check1 Secured Inmate Email Easy-to-use web-based public interface

AJA Expo a Huge Success

The 2011 AJA Conference and Expo in Cincinnati was a resounding success for both Visilinc and attendees alike. Over 50 interested parties began the first steps in creating a seamless Visilinc video vistation/arraignment solution for their facilities.

David Stauff, Sales Engineer for Visilinc remarked, “The 2011 AJA in Cincinnati turned out to be the best trade show I have ever been to in every aspect.  First, the people of Cincinnati and the AJA staff we incredibly nice and helpful.  Having the show in a city like Cincinnati ensured that the correctional staff attending really wanted to be there to learn more about their industry and the vendors who help support it.  Sometimes shows in larger cities have too many distractions and the attendance of both attendees and exhibitors suffers as a result.  The AJA does a great job in choosing where to have their annual show.”

The AJA Expo, held May 15-19, is the largest conference tailored to jail professionals and offers the chance to speak with representatives from over 240 companies about products and services that will help you and your staff do your jobs more effectively and efficiently.
