Healthcare RTLS leader reports significant movement in client base toward
next generation platform, continued growth
SAN DIEGO – February 13, 2014 – Awarepoint Corporation, the largest real-time location system (RTLS) corporation dedicated exclusively to healthcare, announced the close of a strong year with sales momentum and progress in moving its clients to the next generation platform, the aware360°Suite. The latest client to contract for migration is UCSF Medical Center, which also expanded the solution to two additional facilities. With the addition of UCSF Medical Center, a total of 32 clients have now migrated to this next generation platform.
