By counting bills and coins simultaneously and then automatically applying the funds to the correct inmate account, we can really save the facilities a lot of time.

Global Tel*Link (GTL) introduces a new intake kiosk to its existing line of automated solutions for handling funds in correctional facilities. The GTL intake kiosk adds the ability for corrections officers to take inmate funds that are in their possession at the time of their arrest and booking, and quickly count and apply the funds to the inmate’s trust account.

The intake kiosk from GTL accepts bills in a stack so corrections officers do not have to feed bills one at a time, and utilizes a coin basket so loose change can be dropped into the kiosk for rapid counting of inmate funds. The new intake kiosk rejects counterfeit bills and non-money such as bus or subway tokens that may be in an inmate’s possession. All funds taken by the intake kiosk are automatically applied to the correct inmate account and the intake kiosk produces a receipt for the inmate and the facility at the completion of the process.

The GTL intake kiosk runs on the OffenderConnect software and integrates directly with other GTL applications like the industry-leading Offender Management System, eliminating time-consuming data entry. Transactions appear in the OMS accounting system automatically for simplified account reconciliations, and the intake kiosk creates an audit trail for every transaction.

“Many of our customers have issues with money handling during the booking process. Funds get counted incorrectly, large amounts of cash get logged into property and become an issue of security; it just creates headaches for facilities and offers limited accountability,” said Ron Meadows, Intake Kiosk Product Manager for GTL. “We needed to provide a solid solution that removed the potential for human error and made counting funds much quicker than the manual processes that most facilities were using. The intake kiosk does so much of this work, and does it quickly and accurately. By counting bills and coins simultaneously and then automatically applying the funds to the correct inmate account, we can really save the facilities a lot of time.”
