Symx Technologies acquired Guest Technologies for an undisclosed amount, the company announced.
Guest, Laguna Hills, Calif., will become its own division, under the name Symx Guest Technologies. Tim Giraldin, former president of Guest Technologies, will serve as the president of the new division.
The Miami-based subsidiary of Symx Corp., which provides asset management services for the healthcare industry, will use Guest's radio frequency identification technology to enhance patient tracking services, a Symx Technologies spokesman said.
Guest has used its technology in a variety of entertainment industries, including allowing parents to "watch" their children in amusement parks through the use of RFID wristbands. "That expertise will support our efforts to leverage that technology in our RFID capabilities with patient management and patient flow," the spokesman said.
