Joerns Healthcare. Selects EtQ Reliance OnDemand for their Quality Management System

FARMINGDALE, NY (07-05-07): EtQ has announced the implementation of EtQ Reliance OnDemand at Joerns Healthcare, a specialist in innovative beds, furnishings and patient handling equipment for the long-term care industry.

Part of the decision to select EtQ's software came as a result of EtQ's unique Reliance OnDemand offering, which enables companies to implement a robust enterprise quality management system, while reducing IT overhead associated with maintaining the software and hardware. Using EtQ Reliance OnDemand, Joerns was able to implement the system rapidly and efficiently, without having to rely on an internal IT infrastructure to maintain their system. With OnDemand, EtQ provides the administration and maintenance, so that Joerns can focus on their quality and compliance initiatives.

Supply chain visibility was another major factor in the decision to use EtQ. "Joerns has an extensive supplier network, and need a system that will allow them to extend their quality system down the supply-chain," says Glenn McCarty, CEO of EtQ. "Using EtQ's Microsoft Office Integration technology, Joerns is able to collaborate with suppliers and collect crucial quality data, while ensuring a secure and viable quality system."
