JPay Relocates its Call Center to Miramar & adds 75 New Jobs
April 18, 2011
Payment service provider JPay, Inc. has announced that it is moving its call center operations to South Florida, generating 75 new jobs in the state.
The company said in a statement that it has plans to add 75 customer service positions by the end of June and an additional 50 positions by the end of the year, totaling 125 new jobs.
By doing so, the company wants to participate in the Governor Rick Scott's initiative to create over 1 million private sector jobs in the state of Florida.
"Being a South Florida Company, we are excited to participate in the Governor's job growth initiative," said Ryan Shapiro, JPay's CEO. "We believe Florida is a fantastic state to run our business for many reasons. The Governor's pro jobs agenda solidified our decision to move the call center here."
Across America, millions of people are struggling to find a job to earn their livelihood. By opening a call center in Miramar, the company wants to be close to Dade County as well as Broward County.
Miami-based JPay provides money transfer service and email service for state and county correction agencies, currently servicing over 20 state departments of corrections, including the Florida Department of Corrections.
Last month, it landed a contract with Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections to provide electronic offender payments, release debit cards, offender email, kiosk services and MP3 players to the State's 40,000 offenders and their families.
JPay’s service facilitates payments between the Department and the payee - typically the friends and family of inmates who are funding the inmate trust account or the parolee or probationer making his or her court ordered payment.
JPay now serves over 1.3 million offenders, their families and friends across 22 states and over 60 county jails.Narayan Bhat is a contributing editor for TMCnet. To read more of Narayan’s articles, please visit his columnist page.
