Dallas-based Securus Technologies, the leader in law enforcement investigative and corrections services, just announced its acquisition of GovPayNet.
The service pay provider GovPayNet is the industry leader in the processing of credit cards and debit payments to governmental agencies. The company offers a variety of payment processing services including to bail-bonding companies, traffic courts, fines and even parking and speeding violations.
GovPayNet offers services in 35 states, which includes about 26% of counties in the U.S.
Securus CEO Bob Pickens says he is delighted to have added GovPayNet to the company’s already extensive portfolio. “GovPayNet has a long history of offering superior services, great customer satisfaction and associates that have helped the business grow.”
CEO of GovPayNet Mark McKenzie says he is proud to be doing business with Securus. “We are looking forward to bonding with such a great company that offers a wide range of products and services.”
GovPayNet has been working with the government for over 20 years. It was founded by a sheriff in 1997 who was looking for a more streamlined system to process government payments. The company has expanded its processing system to reach over 2300 law enforcement agencies and governmental departments in the U.S.
