The Things that Set Apart Securus Technologies From Their Competitors

Securus Technologies is now considered the leading technology and systems provider for better prison environments in North America. Many prisons and correction agencies in the United States, their whole territory, use the systems of Securus Technologies in their facilities, especially the communication system, a specialization from the company.


Securus Technology is currently serving around 2,200 prisons across the US and Canada, a record when you consider the percentage comparing the maximum number of facilities spread across both nations. The company does that with around 2,600 contracts with the penitentiary owners. But like most other businesses, it has competitors, one of which is Global Tel Link.


However, when comparing companies that provide the same type of technology, be it in the communication field or in some other area, Securus Technologies has the upper hand against their competitors. The main reason for their advantage is because they own their own call centers for their customer service and their customer service allows them to respond promptly and professionally to any and all customer inquiries. This is, of course, for the benefit of Securus’ customers.

Securus Technologies is also winning against competition because of the positive online reviews that they get from the use of their products.


One such review is from a penitentiary that stated that through the use of Securus Technologies’ installed devices, intel was recovered through inmate phone calls about the possible use of narcotics inside the prison, threats, money laundering, and other crimes. Another penitentiary reported that through the monitoring systems from Securus, they were able to get a search warrant for a corrupt prison staff who introduced illegal contraband in that particular prison. The corrupted man was arrested the next day because of the monitoring system that allowed them to spot the conversation where they discussed their plans.

Of course, all of these positive reviews are only possible because customers are happy with Securus’ products.



The Resignation Of Lazaro Brandao Brings Bradesco To A Hunt For A New President As Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Succeeds Him

Lazaro de Mello Brandao recently stepped down from the position of the chairman of the board of directors at Bradesco, the second largest private bank in Brazil. Brandao has enjoyed a 27-year reign since taking up the position in the year 1990. He named Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who served as the vice chairman as his successor. The development brings a realization that Brandao had his succession in mind when he proposed Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s name as the board’s vice chairman years ago. It is clear that he had checked and affirmed his capabilities.

A Vacancy is Created

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s ascension to Chairman creates a vacancy in his current position of the bank’s President. He is, however, holding the position until the first board meeting after the shareholder’s meeting which will take place in March next year. He will serve in both posts despite the bank’s rule of executives not holding two positions at the same time. Another rule of the bank states that Presidents leave their positions at the age of 65. According to Brandao on, selecting new executives is an affair that should not be rushed. It is for this reason that he changed the rules to see Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi hold his current position for two more years. The extension was also made to see that the acquisition and integration of HSBC to the bank was completed under his watch.

Potential Candidates

The next president at Bradesco will be stepping in a very challenging position. Among the challenges is the issue of digitizing all the 27 million customers of the bank. The position calls for an individual who can run a large corporation with different arms. As per the tradition, the bank tends to look for presidents within the team, with top executives forming the potential candidate’s list. The name of the new president must reach Central Bank 30 days before the board meeting in March 2018. The names likely to succeed Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi are the seven vice presidents at Bradesco. They include Mauricio Machado de Minas who serves as the Vice President of technology in the bank, Alexandre da Silva Gluher, Investor Relations Director, and Domingos Figueiredo de Abreu, Treasury and Credit Vice President. The other four names are Josue Augusto Pancini of branch network arm, Octavio de Lazari Junior who heads Bradesco Seguros, Marcelo de Araujo Noronha of the cards and investments division, and human resources department’s Andre Rodrigues Cano.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi joined the banking sector in the late 60’s. He started off as a clerk in Bradesco working in his hometown of Marilia. He later moved to the bank’s headquarters in Sao Paulo and began going up the ladder. He was appointed the Director of Marketing, a position he utilized to open up the bank to the media. He rose again to head the pensions division as the Executive Director and President in 1992. Seven years later, he rose to the position of the Executive Vice President of the bank’s insurance division, Bradesco Seguros. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was later appointed the President of the arm, the position that paved the way for his position as the bank’s President.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has done extremely well in the banking field despite his background training in a different sector. He studies philosophy at the University of Sao Paulo. He would later enroll for postgraduate studies in social-psychology at the School of Sociology and Politics of Sao Paulo. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s work over the years has earned him several accolades. During his tenure at Bradesco Seguros, he was honored severally as the Insurance Personality of the Year.
