Parsons Brinckerhoff Selects EtQ Quality Management System

FARMINGDALE, NY (10-06-08): EtQ is pleased to announce the implementation of EtQ Reliance Quality Management System (QMS) at Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) - a planning, program, engineering, and construction management organization.

PB was looking for a QMS that could provide them with outstanding Audit and Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) capability, and chose to implement EtQ Reliance QMS.

PB had been using an automated audit program that was on multiple company servers, and needed a holistic, intuitive system. EtQ was able to provide them with an intuitive, web-based Audits module with controlled access that streamlined the administration process. In addition, EtQ's CAPA module will allow PB to generate a CAPA request that will route through review, root cause, corrective action taken, and verification stages. Multiple reports will be automatically generated, providing them with an effective mechanism for tracking the source and costs of all problems. Furthermore, PB saw value in the long-term scalability of EtQ's robust set of modules. As they grow their QMS using EtQ, they are able to implement other key modules such as Complaint Handling, Meetings, Document Control, and more.

"EtQ is able to streamline and simplify the process of Audits and CAPAs for Parsons Brinckerhoff," stated Glenn McCarty, Chief Executive Officer of EtQ. "We are able to provide them with software that can be personalized to match their business processes, ultimately enhancing the user experience across their organization. EtQ is truly able to deliver a best-in-class software solution for PB and we look forward to surpassing their expectations."

EtQ is excited to welcome Parsons Brinckerhoff and looks forward to meeting all of their QMS needs.
