FARMINGDALE, NY (02-26-07): EtQ, Inc. has announced the implementation of EtQ Reliance at FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc., makers of conventional and digital PS printing plates, QuickSnap one-time-use recyclable cameras, color photographic paper, medical imaging products, and projection screen products.
After an extensive review, Fujifilm selected EtQ Reliance Quality management system to manage their quality and compliance processes. "We are thrilled to have Fujifilm on board with EtQ, and we look forward to fostering the relationship", says Glenn McCarty, CEO of EtQ. "EtQ Reliance is a perfect fit for Fujifilm in that it allows them to configure EtQ to match their business processes exactly, and without programming."
Fujifilm formed a team to execute a needs analysis-to determine what an ideal system should accomplish. The next step involved a gap analysis across all facilities to pinpoint where those needs were not fulfilled. After gaining a thorough understanding of Fujifilm's specific needs, EtQ had the opportunity demonstrate the capabilities of EtQ Reliance, its web-based compliance management system to Fujifilm representatives.
In the end, EtQ Reliance stood out above the competition. "We used several different systems here, and when we evaluated their ability to function for us as a true enterprise content management system for our entire site, none of them were quite up to the task," says Chuck Brinck of FUJIFILM Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc. "I think what made EtQ Reliance stand out in the end, was its broad range of features and ability to be configured, which will enable us to change our system as our company grows and expands."
