EtQ Announces Connector for Content Management, Document Management Systems (DMS)

FARMINGDALE, NY (07-23-07): EtQ has announced the development of the EtQ DMS Integration Tool, allowing seamless integration of EtQ's Quality Management Software with Document Management Systems (DMS) and Enterprise Content Management Systems (ECM).

EtQ comes with a powerful Document Control application ideally suited to managing quality system documentation. But many companies have already implemented document management systems (DMS), sometimes referred to as enterprise content management systems (ECM), and want to store their quality documents in the same document repository. The EtQ DMS Integration Tool makes this possible, while retaining all the benefits of EtQ's Document Control functionality.

The EtQ DMS Integration Tool handles all the necessary integration points between EtQ's Quality Management Software and third-party document repositories. EtQ is able to integrate with existing DMS and ECM systems to provide a seamless interface for managing documents within the EtQ Quality Management System. Documents created in DMS/ECM repositories (Documentum, LiveLink, Interwoven, Filenet, etc.) are automatically synchronized in EtQ's Document Control database, ensuring that any and all content held in the repositories are updated in EtQ. Similarly, any changes made to documents in EtQ's Document Control database are synchronized with the DMS/ECM repositories, seamlessly and automatically. "This two-way synchronization enables companies to utilize EtQ's robust Quality Management Software system, while integrating with their existing DMS/ECM system," says Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at EtQ. "For companies who already have an established Document Management system, but want to take advantage of EtQ's comprehensive set of modules and focused solution, this is a great option for combining two technologies to streamline quality operations."

The EtQ DMS integration Tool is just one option for companies seeking document control in their Quality System. Built from the ground up to manage quality documents, EtQ's Document Control application provides many advantages that standard DMS/ECM systems cannot provide. Document book-marking, electronic distribution, electronic signature tracking, Microsoft Office integration, robust workflow-based routing, and Integration with EtQ's Training database are just some of the hundreds of features out-of-the-box in EtQ's Document Control module. EtQ has developed a focused document management system that is pre-configured to address compliance initiatives specific to quality management. No other DMS/ECM is able to provide the functionality and features offered by EtQ's integrated suite of Quality Management modules.
