EtQ Announces EtQ Portal - Enterprise Dashboard for Quality and Compliance Management

FARMINGDALE, NY (01-05-07): EtQ, Inc. has announced the release of the EtQ portal, a personalized application workspace for quality and compliance management.

EtQ's independent market research has shown that managers need easy access to consolidated information regarding quality and compliance information. Recognizing this need, EtQ released the EtQ portal, which allows for the rollup of enterprise data into a single, flexible management view. With EtQ portal, managers will be able to track Key Performance Indicators (KPI's), Quality Alerts, open and past due records, Exception Reports, and the overall status of quality and compliance issues within an organization.

"Before EtQ portal, quality and compliance managers would need to search out the data in the system, whether within the application or by meeting with their departments," says Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology officer at EtQ. "With EtQ portal in place, managers are able to see a real time view of the entire quality system, and can identify and address potential problems before they occur".

EtQ is already seeing the benefits of the portal throughout their customer base. Managers are able to keep informed of the quality system and report their findings to top management, using EtQ's reporting technology to show continuous improvement in their quality system using EtQ. "This kind of enterprise level reporting allows the Quality Manager to become a hero to the organization -less quality problems means more productivity, and this affect the bottom line...all 'must-haves' for any organization," adds Glenn McCarty, CEO of EtQ.

The EtQ portal is just one enhancement of many to occur in 2007. As the software landscape changes to a more enterprise-wide focus, EtQ continues to stay on the leading edge in providing technology advancements to address the growing demands in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Device, Manufacturing, and Health & Safety.
