GTL's Automated Intake Kiosks

This is a title
Inmate Booking Kiosk

Reduce Cash Handling at Booking While Increasing Efficiency

The GTL Intake Kiosk uses technology to significantly increase efficiency and reduce liability when booking inmates into correctional facilities. By utilizing automation, funds such as cash, credit cards, and loose coins collected from inmates at the time of booking can be transferred into an offender management system such as GTL OMS or deposited according to existing processes using the GTL Intake Kiosk to accurately and quickly count all funds.

The GTL Intake Kiosk counts coins and paper currency using bulk bill and bulk coin counting mechanisms. Deposits to trust or commissary accounts can be made using a credit or debit card. As an added benefit, inmates have the opportunity to use the kiosk to send a facility-approved voice message at time of booking to notify friends or family of their incarceration. Funds collected are automatically applied to the correct inmate account with just a few quick entries using its touch screen. With the GTL Intake Kiosk, counting and recounting funds from booked inmates is a thing of the past, and there is no cash being put into property bags to become lost or stolen.

Count Funds Accurately and Efficiently

The GTL Intake Kiosk allows facility staff to drop handfuls of coins into the coin counter and place stacks of bills into the bill counter to quickly and accurately count funds taken from inmates at booking. All funds are guaranteed by GTL as soon as they are accepted by the GTL Intake Kiosk, so accepting funds at a facility has never been easier or more efficient.

Avoid Risk

Misplacing inmate funds or being deceived by counterfeit bills are nightmares that many facilities experience on a regular basis. The GTL Intake Kiosk has been designed to solve the problems that correctional facilities face when handling inmate funds. Counterfeit bills are rejected by the intake kiosk at the time of acceptance so financial losses can be avoided. All inmate funds are counted and deposited at booking, so there is no cash to be lost or stolen from property.

Data Entry and Record Keeping Simplified

Funds accepted by the GTL Intake Kiosk are counted and logged, and they can be automatically transferred to the appropriate inmate account so that correctional facility staff do not have to manually process deposits. The entire system has been designed to reduce time and money handling so correctional facilities run more efficiently.

GTL: Technology in Motion Tour Makes an Impact at the Annual Mock Prison Riot

Vinnie M. Mascarenhas, Communications Manager, GTL

PRNewsWire -Since 1997, a decommissioned penitentiary in Wheeling, West Virginia, has played host to a unique international event for the corrections community called the “Mock Prison Riot.” Scenario drills in the penitentiary’s yard, prison cells, and various blocks are completed by teams of corrections officers or CERT Teams, who at times even volunteer to play the role of inmates.

This year, 21 official teams registered, and other smaller counties attended and participated to learn about the latest in corrections market technology – and GTL’s Technology in Motion motor coach was positioned right in the middle of all the action.

When folks first step aboard this 40-foot demo bus, they are amazed at how GTL has brought its product suite to life. Customers and potential customers can touch, feel, and interact with our solutions as well as sit comfortably to discuss with our sales leaders how our industry-leading corrections market technology can be utilized for their purposes.

The Technology in Motion bus tour is bringing all of GTL’s products and offerings directly to the corrections community with this nationwide tour. We’ve only just begun with more than 6,000 miles traveled, 22 tour stops under our belt, and over 1,200 customer personnel onboard – we have a lot more ground to cover and customers to meet as the tour continues across the country.

Offerings from every solution family in GTL’s diverse portfolio are represented:
Communications Solutions – encompassing Inmate Calling, Inmate Messaging, and Visitation Management
Investigative and Intelligence Solutions – comprising Call & Voice Analysis and Data Analysis
Payment and Deposit Solutions – including Inmate Calling Payments, Commissary & Trust Deposits, and Self-Release Payments
Enterprise Management Solutions – such as the GTL Offender Management System (OMS)
Inmate Services – including Education & Information, Entertainment, and Efficiency Services
• Technology, Platforms and Devices – featuring the Inspire® inmate tablet, Flex® Link multi-service unit (for inmate calling, visitation, and a host of inmate services), Payment Kiosk, Intake Kiosk, Payment Processing Station, and more

During the 2017 Mock Prison Riot, about 175 corrections customers and potential customers made their way through the motor coach. The morning began with a customer interested in piloting the GTL Inspire® inmate tablet. Another potential customer who visited the bus was unhappy with their current vendor due to frequent service outages and was looking to make a change for improved performance and more reliable security. By leading through action and paving the way for the latest technologies available in the corrections market, GTL truly stands alone as the industry leader. And we will continue, refine and promote best practices with our customer base while constantly looking forward at cutting-edge programs and technology, and always staying ahead of the industry curve.
