EtQ Recognized as "Sample Vendor" in Three of Analyst Firm's Hype Cycle Reports

FARMINGDALE, NY (09-05-12): EtQ, a leading provider of Quality Management, Environmental Health and Safety, and Compliance Management Software solutions, today announced that it has been identified as a sample vendor in three of Gartner's 2012 Hype Cycle Reports, "Hype Cycle for Manufacturing Product Life Cycle and Operations Management," "Hype Cycle for Supply Chain Management," and "Hype Cycle for Life Sciences."

Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of specific business goals.

EtQ is recognized in the "Health and Safety Applications," "Quality Process Management Applications," and "Cloud Computing in PLM and Manufacturing categories."

"For the past 20 years, EtQ has prided itself on its customer-focused stance," stated Glenn McCarty, chief technology officer at EtQ. We continue to work closely with the customer to develop products based largely on their feedback, which has contributed to EtQ's growth and profitability. "We believe being named by Gartner as a sample vendor in three hype cycle reports further reinforces the value of EtQ Reliance to our customers."
