Altoona, Pennsylvania (Vocus) September 8, 2009
Corrections professionals from all over the United States will gather in Altoona, PA in September to shape the future of corrections technology. The Digital Solutions / Inmate Telephone, Inc. (DSI / ITI) annual User Group provides DSI / ITI customers with the chance to propose and vote on changes to industry-leading Jail Management System (JMS), the Offender Management System (OMS).
“The corrections professional who uses our products every day knows them inside and out- in many cases almost as well as the designer of the product. We have found that by giving these users free reign to propose changes that will improve how the product works in the “real world” that we can offer the best product imaginable to do the job it needs to do,” said Thomas Brence, Director of Marketing for DSI / ITI. “It is really a win-win. Our customers get a constantly evolving product based on direct user input and we have a product that really works in the marketplace.”
In addition to offering suggestions for the OMS, individuals at User Group get to interact with third-party solutions such as medical records management program suites, video visitation products, digital imaging solutions and other products and services that are specifically suited for the corrections industry. “Prisons and jails have their own unique set of circumstances and no two are alike. We bring in partners who offer solutions that can help solve problems for our users,” said Brence.
It’s not all work and no play though. For those who come early to the conference, there is a charity golf outing to support the Miracle League of Blair County, an organization that provides an opportunity to play baseball for special needs children.
