Idaho National Laboratory Selects EtQ Reliance Quality Management Software

FARMINGDALE, NY (10-29-08): EtQ is pleased to announce the implementation of EtQ Reliance Quality Management System (QMS) at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) - a science-based, applied engineering national laboratory that supports the Department of Energy's missions in energy and nuclear research, national defense, and science.

INL recognized a need for a QMS that would provide seamless integration across their enterprise and provide them with a robust set of modules, and chose to implement EtQ Reliance QMS. Of particular interest was EtQ's Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) module.

INL needed a system that would streamline and simplify the process of conducting a corrective and preventive action - EtQ's CAPA module provides this for INL with a system that routes through review, root cause, corrective action taken, and verification stages. Using EtQ Reliance, INL will be able to fully automate their processes, and with the flexibility to configure without programming will have the ability to rapidly deploy new business processes more efficiently. "We are able to provide INL with a highly flexible and highly configurable QMS that increases convenience for the user through our tightly integrated modules," stated Glenn McCarty, Chief Executive Officer of EtQ. "In addition, EtQ was able to complete implementation for INL in just 4 weeks - we look forward to continuing to efficiently meet all of INS's QMS expectations."

EtQ is excited to work with INL and to provide them with the high level of satisfaction that they require in a QMS.
