Burlington, MA – May 15, 2019: ETQ, the leading provider of quality management solutions, today announced that it has been named a Leader by independent analyst firm Verdantix in the 2019 Verdantix EHS Software Green Quadrant. ETQ received the highest quality management score of the 23 vendors evaluated in the report, and the second-highest score for management of change functionality. It was also recognized for its market-leading capabilities in master data and document management, and for its audit management, compliance obligations and task management solutions.
This is Verdantix’s fifth detailed comparison of the most prominent EHS software vendors worldwide, and marks ETQ’s second consecutive time in the Leader quadrant. The report underscores ETQ’s strengths in providing customers with a quick-to-implement, scalable and integrated quality data management and EHS solution. Verdantix also lauded ETQ’s platform, ETQ Reliance, for its extensive capabilities that make it easy for users to track document lifecycles, manage inspections and supplier ratings, create compliance initiatives, review customer feedback and schedule audits.
“As companies progress on their quality journeys, more are integrating EHS data, processes and workflows into their quality management systems,” said Robert Gremley, CEO of ETQ. “We think this approach delivers a tremendous amount of value to companies that want an integrated solution for continuous improvement, and the Verdantix Green Quadrant report is strong validation of that perspective.”
Yoawen Ma, senior analyst, EHS, Verdantix, added, “EHS executives who work closely with their quality management counterparts should explore ETQ, particularly for its expertise in quality management and strong EHS data management functionalities. The company has invested heavily in its data management capabilities in the past year and a half, and the value of its platform is augmented by helpful services such as ETQ Academy, which offers microlearning, eLearning and certificate-based training solutions.”
