Unilink is an innovative software solution provider working in justice including: prisoner self-service, communications with friends and family, oﬀender management software and probation systems. Unilink provides products and services that help the efficient and effective operation of prisons and other custodial environments. Following on from Unilink’s merger with Beaumont Colson Ltd, Unilink has also designed and develop the UK’s national probation service case-management system, national-Delius, for England and Wales and offender-management systems for community rehabilitation companies.
Independent research from University of York shows that Unilink’s self-service software contributes significantly towards rehabilitation and running prisons efficiently. The system is well proved and tested; Prisoners have carried out over 1.5 billion transactions and every day do more enabling prisons to work better.
Unilink’s biometric –offender management system is an award-winning product that works safely, securely and efficiently. The self-service modules allow prisoners to gain control over organising their lives: e.g. visits, food and canteen shopping. It releases prison officers from administration to focus on working with prisoners through back-office efficiencies. Unilink is a multi-award-winning company winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation and “Best Citizen App” and UK Digital Leader overall winner in recent years.
Finally Unilink’s family-friendly communication solutions – email a prisoner, secure payments, phone and video visits allow friends and families of prisoners to stay in touch with them, which reduces recidivism and helps the rehabilitation process.
The Unilink Group has offices in the UK, Australia, South Africa, USA and the Netherlands.
