When companies compete in the same business market, there will be times where things can get unpleasant. Competition can sometimes bring out the best and worst in companies. The competition between companies is real because the companies are competing for business market share. This includes sales and revenue. Without these things, companies cannot survive. Therefore in many ways, companies are fighting for survival.
This fight for survival will cause some companies to push the envelope on many issues. When companies push the envelope, there will be occasions when other companies especially companies in the same business market will not like what is being done. This situation will produce disagreements and hard feelings. This was the case between Securus Technologies and GTL. The two companies had a disagreement concerning technology ownership rights. Both companies compete in the highly competitive technology market.
The companies could not come to a mutual understanding regarding the technology ownership rights disagreement. Therefore, the situation became worst. GTL decided at some point to send out a press release that took the disagreement public. In the press release, GTL made numerous negative statements about Securus Technologies regarding the technology ownership rights disagreement between the two companies.
As a result, Securus Technologies responded by sending out a press release of its own. The press release sent out by Securus Technologies stated that the statements made by GTL contained many inaccurate statements and misleading information. Securus Technologies pointed out the portions of each statement where it disagreed with what was stated by GTL.
I believe that Securus Technologies conducted itself in a professional manner regarding the disagreement with GTL. Also, Securus Technologies responded to the statements made by GTL in the proper manner considering the situation.
Securus Technologies is a technology company that has a great reputation. The company provides an array of technology related products and services in many areas such as telecommunications.
