Meeting Management

The process of holding Management Review meetings is one of the essential requirements that companies should adopt in order to meet the various Quality, FDA Compliance, and Environmental Health & Safety System standard requirements. In Management Review meetings, quality systems should be reviewed, evaluated, and maintained. These meetings should be scheduled at defined intervals sufficient to ensure the quality systems continuing suitability and effectiveness in satisfying the requirements of the international standards and the organization's quality policy and objectives.

The EtQ Meeting Management module allows for the setup and configuration of Meeting templates in order to record and track multiple meeting types within the quality system. Using EtQ's workflow-enabled platform, meetings are scheduled, agendas are set, invited users are notified, and action items are assigned. The meetings module provides a centralized resource whereby the entire organization is able to collaborate on specific meeting items and automatically track action items across the enterprise.

The Meetings module is just one of over 20 modules available as part of the EtQ Quality, FDA Compliance, and Environmental Health & Safety Management Software systems. EtQ continues to enhance its products and services in an effort to further the concept of providing automation, integration and collaboration across the enterprise.
