SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/21/09 -- Awarepoint Corporation, a provider of real-time location solutions (RTLS) to the healthcare market, today announced that it has been selected to the 2009 AlwaysOn Global 250 List.

Awarepoint was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on demonstration of growth, market opportunity, quality of innovation and customer traction.

Awarepoint and the other AlwaysOn Global 250 winners will be recognized at the AlwaysOn & STVP Summit at Stanford, taking place at Stanford University in Palo Alto, CA, on July 28-30. This two-and-a-half day executive conference, co-presented by the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, will highlight the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries.

"It's no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "The companies on this year's list have not only created innovative technologies that solve real business problems, but have stimulated economic growth through the generation of new jobs. I congratulate every winner selected for this year's award and wish them all tremendous success in the future."
