Eau Claire County in Wisconsin recently moved inmates into a new facility. The new jail includes Renovo Software's video visitation system. Hardware was provided by Southern Folger. Eau Claire County will use the system to configure, manage, schedule, and automate visitations. Visitors can now schedule visits online at http://jailvisit.co.eau-claire.wi.us. Online visitation scheduling and automated conflict checking means visitors will no longer have to wait in line or worry about being turned away if an inmate was moved, put on restriction, or has already met their quota.
Inmate video visitation stations are placed directly in inmate housing pods within the jail, and visitor stations are in the jail's lobby. This strategic placement means officers no longer need to escort inmates and visitors, and will all but eliminate contraband being brought into the facility by visitors. The result is a safer, more predictable, and more efficient system for jail officers, inmates, and visitors.
