Versatile Announces Strategic Alliance With GuestAssist; Alliance to Target Professional Sports Leagues in North America

MECHANICSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - Versatile Systems Inc. (TSX VENTURE:VV)(AIM:VVS) today announced a strategic alliance with GuestAssist to provide an integrated text messaging and incident tracking version of SyncSeer's™ Venue Management solution.

GuestAssist – the industry leader in real-time, two-way, enterprise-to-customer communications – is partnering with Versatile on a new venue management service that will make it easier for organizations in the stadium, arena, public facility and hospitality markets to communicate with event-goers during security/safety emergencies. GuestAssist is currently used by teams and venues in every major sporting league in North America, including the NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, NHL, NCAA and CFL.

"GuestAssist's existing customer base make them an ideal partner for SyncSeer's™ Venue Management solution," said Bob Joyce, President of Versatile Systems. "Integrating guest text messages directly into SyncSeer™ will make it easier for security and event staff to centralize information collection and dissemination, enabling them to prioritize decision making for enhanced real-time situation management during safety or security related incidents."

SyncSeer™ allows venue staff to track and manage incidents as they occur in real time. Automated and highly configurable workflows reduce the drain on Command and Control Centers by routing requests directly to the correct employee or group of employees.

"SyncSeer Venue Management's advanced incident tracking capability will add real value to our existing customers," said Jeremy Konko, President of GuestAssist. "Our cloud strategy for fast deployment fits in perfectly with Versatile's vision for providing applications in the future."
