Housing – Assigns inmates to housing based on agency-defined criteria.
Schedules & Movements – Maintains detailed records of all internal and external scheduled and unscheduled movements.

Programs & Services – Refers offenders to specific internal or external programs, manages offender scheduling for assigned programs, and tracks attendance and performance against agency-defined objectives and measurement criteria.
Court Cases – Records the legal orders authorizing inmate custody, and maintains the custody status of each inmate.
Property Management – Tracks all items of inmate property held by the prison and facility property issued to the inmate; full history of transactions is maintained.

After these details are saved, an incident evaluation may be completed. The incident questionnaire and evaluation process are configurable and can be specific to the incident type being reported.
Visits – Schedules and manages inmate visitation. An authorized visitor list is mandatory.
Integrated Word Processing – Brings all the convenience of Microsoft Word™ directly into the hands of your officers, automatically merging stored data with agency-specific form and letter templates.

Automated Counts – Counts functionality includes the ability to capture the jail or prison count at defined periods during the day; submit counts from living units as well as internal locations within the jail.
Transportation – Facilitates the transportation of inmates between jails or facilities for events such as court appearances and medical treatments, helping simplify the scheduling of inmate movements, and reduce staff burden.
Offender Issues – Allows institutions to manage grievances at the inmate-specific level, to track staff members involved with filed grievances, create grievance records and all subsequent grievance transaction records.
