Aug 31, 2016, 16:12 PM

(Traverse City, Mich. and Dayton, Ohio, August 31, 2016) — Versus Technology, Inc. received the highest rating among real-time locating system (RTLS) vendors in eight categories, including Location Accuracy, in the recent KLAS report, “Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) 2016.” Versus also received the highest Overall Performance Score among vendors that provide both hardware and software.

RTLS users rated Versus as the top vendor in 8 categories:


  • Location accuracy
  • Drives tangible outcomes
  • Supports integration goals
  • Would buy again
  • Keeps all promises
  • Improves patient satisfaction
  • Improves patient care
  • Improves staff satisfaction/safety


According to customers interviewed by KLAS, Versus excels at accuracy, a key component to achieving operational efficiency and managing patient flow. In fact, of the 11 RTLS hardware and software providers rated by KLAS, Versus customers reported the most use cases for Patient Flow (63% of surveyed customers) and Staff Locating (84% of surveyed customers) — one reason why KLAS highlighted Versus as delivering top value and going the furthest beyond basic asset tracking.

Health systems looking to balance the quality and efficiency of care need look no further than the benefits reported to KLAS by Versus customers*:


“The biggest benefit of Advantages RTLS is the real-time, actionable data … From an organization-wide, high-level perspective, the real-time data empowers managers on-site and the operational leadership to really delve into what is going on and figure out how to change that.”

“Advantages RTLS is an amazing product that is simple to use. Versus is very easy to work with, and they assist us with solution building to improve the patient experience. The complex data that we are able to glean from this passive system is remarkable.”

“[The efficiency Versus provides] sometimes lets us get one to one and half more surgeries in per day, and that is an incredible amount of money that we are able to gain.”


“We are honored to be rated so highly by our customers,” says HT Snowday, Versus president. “It is our customers’ commitment to improving patient care that deserves the credit. As evidenced by the number of use cases KLAS documented for patient flow and staff locating, our clients are the most advanced RTLS users in healthcare. What they achieve with Versus speaks to their dedication to transforming the patient experience.”
