Core Systems is showcasing Core Pathway, a product that transforms correctional services for the post-pandemic world.

Belfast, Oct, 20, 2022: Core Systems, a software company that does things differently, is introducing its revolutionary product Core Pathway at the ICPA conference in Orlando, Florida.

The Challenges and Changes

It has been over two years since Covid-19 dramatically changed the world. In the new normal, the utilisation of technology has increased in every aspect of life. However, the criminal justice system has yet to catch up with technological advances. Core Systems has created Core Pathway to help tackle this issue.

Due to the pandemic, staff had limited flexibility in their roles. Many probation offices closed and stay-at-home orders were mandated. Prisoners were isolated further by restricted contact with their loved ones and more time in their cells. Increased isolation can have a negative impact on mental health, making a successful re-entry back into society a greater challenge. The disruption of the pandemic, especially in the criminal justice system, caused mass upheaval and highlighted the need to overcome digital restrictions.

The combination of justice reform and accelerated digital adoption arising from the pandemic has pulled us forward and has resulted in breaking down many of the barriers for technology adoption in prisons

Core Pathway is web-based and improves prisoners’ education, relationships and overall well-being. Prisoners stay connected to their support network through video calls and messaging.
