San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014
San Francisco-based Telmate is no stranger to technology. The inmate communications leader is the first company to launch an iOS app that helps friends and family to stay connected with their incarcerated loved ones. GettingOut is a free mobile app now available on the Apple iTunes Store that allows friends and family to easily make deposits, send messages, and manage accounts from the convenience of their smartphone.
According to the Administrative Office of the United States Courts’ Federal Probation Journal, inmates who are connected to the outside world are more likely to refrain from conduct that would cause them to receive disciplinary infractions or jeopardize early release. Telmate believes that the technology behind GettingOut is essentially helping reduce the cycle of recidivism, helping inmates to get out and stay out.
“It’s important for us here at Telmate to make sure that friends and family are able to stay in touch with their incarcerated loved ones anytime, anywhere,” said Jeff Hansen, Telmate’s Chief Marketing Officer. “With hectic schedules and multitasking on the rise, mobile is the way to go.”
