FRESNO, Calif., Aug. 14, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Continental Prison Systems, Inc. (Pink Sheets:CPSZ), dba EZ Card & Kiosk, installed its newest service offering, called EZ Text Messaging, and trained the entire staff at Pueblo County Jail, Pueblo, Colorado on this unique feature that will expedite the inmate release process, reducing the time an inmate spends in the facility.
EZ Text Messaging allows the inmate during the booking process to send up to three text messages to their family, friends and/or lawyer via the EZ Booking Kiosk, which also accepts the inmate's cash and posts to the facility's accounting system. These text messages notify the recipient of the location and status of the inmate, and lists a reply phone number, as well as an EZ Card & Kiosk secure website, where they can remotely post bail. This new feature, which is an expanded software service to existing kiosks, represents another user transaction-based revenue stream.
Ron Hodge, CEO and Product Development Manager, states that, "This newest feature to our line-up of unique applications, serving the city and county jails, is another example of how EZ Card & Kiosk continues to listen to our customer base and deliver new services that assist them in better managing their detention facility at reduced overhead costs."
