Securus Technologies announced that they are acquiring GovNetPay, and the payment platform will now be under the supervision of one of the leading communications provider in the United States. The decision to acquire GovNetPay came from the executive department of Securus Technologies, and according to their new chief executive officer, Robert E. Pickens, the acquisition of GovNetPay will be beneficial both for the company and for the public. He stated that they will be putting a lot of improvements with the payment platform, and included in the improvements that he is referring to would be the faster payment transactions possible only by integrating the technology that Securus Technologies have on their end.
GovPayNet is a simple way on how the public can pay government related payments. The platform is being used in more than 26% of total number of counties in the United States, and the number of people using the payment platform keeps on increasing every year. Now that GovNetPay is under the ownership of Securus Technologies, experts believe that the customer based of GovNetPay would expand. They are presently accepting credit and debit payments, but Securus Technologies is studying the possibility of including new payment methods so that the public will have more options.
People who are using GovNetPay would simply log into their website, where they would be asked for their payment location code or PLC for short. They can also search for their PLC by filling up a form provided inside the website. GovNetPay is one of the most convenient ways to pay for taxes, fees, fines, and even bail, and they have all the tracking option and the reference option that can be presented to the government as a proof that a payment has been made. With Securus Technologies, the role of GovNetPay would surely be expanded.
