(Traverse City, Michigan, April 7, 2016) — Versus Technology, Inc. announced that two of its products, the Asset Net™ Tag and Advantages™ Asset Management real-time locating solution (RTLS) have successfully achieved Cisco compatibility certification with Wireless/Mobility – Cisco Compatible eXtensions (CCX).
The Internet of Everything (IoE) continues to bring together people, processes, data and things to enhance the relevancy of network connections. As a member of the Cisco® Solution Partner Program, Versus Technology is able to quickly create and deploy solutions to enhance the capabilities, performance and management of the network to capture value in the IoE.
The new dual-technology Asset Net Tag from Versus emits both CCX and infrared (IR) locating signals to combine the precision of IR with the ubiquity of Wi-Fi. This allows hospitals to start with Wi-Fi asset tracking for campus-wide fleet visibility, then add the precision of wireless or wired infrared sensors where necessary to definitively locate assets to the room level. The Versus Advantages Asset Management software displays both Wi-Fi and IR location data. In areas where IR locating is used, hospitals can accurately analyze equipment utilization and manage assets with par-level inventory alerts.
“By combining Wi-Fi locating with the precision Versus is known for, we’ve established the most economic, scalable and effective RTLS in healthcare,” says HT Snowday, Versus President. “Hospitals can now have the best of both worlds — enterprise visibility with Cisco Wi-Fi, plus the ability to easily add precision locating for advanced workflow and patient flow optimization.”
The Cisco Solution Partner Program, part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem, unites Cisco with third-party independent hardware and software vendors to deliver integrated solutions to joint customers. As a Solution Partner, Versus Technology offers a complementary product offering and has started to collaborate with Cisco to meet the needs of joint customers.
