Correctional institutions have long had programs where inmates work at a variety of industrial jobs during the terms of their sentences. Operators of correctional facilities have recognized that these industrial activities offer the opportunity to generate revenue, thus offsetting the costs of the industrial programs, and potentially realizing positive cash flows.
In many cases, correctional institutions offer these industrial resources as an "outsourcing service," contracting light-assembly and fabrication tasks from a variety of customers. To realize the revenue potential of these services, low-cost and easy-to-implement ERP software is required.
- XData Solutions offers an ERP package which is uniquely suited to the corrections environment. The "to order" capabilities of the Xdata product support the service model offered by correctional institutions, and the low-cost and short time to implement fit within institutional budget constraints.
