Date:9/30/2009

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital Center and Versus Technology, Inc. (Versus) are pleased to announce an expansion of the 2002 Real-time Locating Solution (RTLS) at Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital Center to include Versus' Enterprise Asset Management solution.

Tagging assets allows staff to instantly locate needed equipment and contributes to greater efficiency throughout the facility. McKay-Dee initially plans to track over 2,000 assets throughout the 352-bed facility.

For example: with preventative maintenance dates known, as the date approaches, Versus will alert the appropriate staff that a particular piece of equipment is due for maintenance and deliver the equipment's current location. Similar rules-based applications will notify staff of warranty expirations and low-battery status. Real-time awareness of an asset's location will help staff immediately locate rarely used assets and control inventory levels for frequently used items to ensure that the equipment is appropriately stocked and available for use.

With the Versus Reports Plus(TM) program, McKay-Dee Hospital Center will also have a tool to map utilization according to the asset's make/model and per unit usage. This will help McKay-Dee develop equipment storage models and quickly assess equipment needs. When making rental or purchase decisions, hospital staff will be able to s
