Why KeepAccount™ Online?
It has been said:
"The better you manage the offenders money the better you manage the offender".
IMCS KeepAccount™ Online has tools for contolling the movement and amount of money to and from an inmate's account. Controls can be set on an individual inmate or a group of inmates. Accounts can be "frozen" so no money is spent until an Administrator removes the frozen status. Spending restrictions can be set to allow some inmates more spending privileges than others. Eligibility for hygiene or indigent packages can be controlled by length of time the inmate balance was below a dollar amount and time limit set by the system administrator. IMCS KeepAccount™ Online does more than track inmate money.
Canteen Vendors often offer “free” inmate Trust Fund accounting software. This may be a very good deal for the county budget, but is it a good deal for the tracking of the Inmate Trust Fund?
- How much assistance will you receive if/when questions arise during an audit?
- If the county changes vendors, what happens to the data?
- Will you be given its data in a readable / workable format?
- If your computers and servers are not used what data security do they offer?
- Will you have exclusive rights and use of the data or can a third party use the data for its own purposes.
IMCS will not leave you wondering about your data and security. IMCS will be there to assist you in an audit. IMCS’s software KeepAccount™ has been tracking inmate money for over 30 years and will be there if you need us.
Security is Paramount
Security is a high priority today. IMCS uses an industry-leading hosting company to provide reliable and secure servers to run the software and database systems. Access to KeepAccount™ Online is via a browser-based computer device. Upon acquiring a subscription, the institution is given logon credentials and a quick-start procedure to easily initialize its database and users. Each institution is assigned its own unique database with complete isolation of data among IMCS clients. Communication across the internet is via a secure encrypted process and sensitive inmate data is stored encrypted in the database.
Installation & Maintenance
Gone are the problems of installing software in individual computers. The administrator of the KeepAccount™ Online system can assign specific computers to access the KeepAccount™ Online system without the aid of the IT department.
A comprehensive Help system is available online to guide users through all features and processes and serves as a valuable tool for KeepAccount™ Online training. Help is available on every screen.
