The Business Challenge
Improve the safety of society by detaining convicted prisoners, while influencing their behavior to build a socially acceptable life upon release.
Unisys delivered a custody management solution (based on HOLMES and the Jail Management Solution) for penitentiaries across the country for a single integrated view of litigants and the judicial system; support for the Basic Provision Biometrics program that uses biometric data, such as fingerprints, to verify litigants’ and visitors’ identities; application services to develop self-service solutions for inmates and a system to calculate the duration of imprisonment.

- Reduced the time taken to record, track and identify detainees (totaling 40,000+ per year), visitors and employees
