Securus, Inc. Key Developments

Securus, Inc. Snags $1 Million Loan

Securus, Inc. has embarked on a new funding round in which it has raised nearly $1 million in debt financing so far. Although the company has been quiet since replacing CEO Chris Newton with Thomas Collopy last year, it's still fundraising. This latest round comes from two investors, with $970,000 of the $1.15 million goal already under its belt. The company has raised about $9 million in venture capital thus far.

Securus, Inc. Launches eResponder

Securus, Inc. announced eResponder, a very small, lightweight, and comfortable-to-wear mobile personal emergency response system which enables users to break free from landline-based systems that only work in and around the home. eResponder Highlights: A two-way voice system: eResponder connects the user to a certified emergency care specialist at the press of a button, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year. It features a powerful built-in speaker and microphone. The care specialist can dispatch EMS and/or send loved ones to the user, depending on what is needed. If the user needs to be located, the care specialist can coordinate with 911 operators and utilize the U-TDOA network to help find the individual; Designed for any lifestyle: eResponder is simple, easy-to-use, easy-to-wear and doesn't interfere with the active lifestyles of today's seniors. Users will have peace of mind while in the home, gardening, walking the dog, on a trip to the mall - wherever users want to go; Lengthy battery life: eResponder offers a rechargeable battery that lasts up to two months, meaning the user only has to recharge it six times a year instead of every night like other units currently on the market; Small and lightweight: The unit weighs in at just over an ounce, is shower-safe and can be worn as a pendant, clipped to a belt or stowed in a pocket.
