STEC Selects EtQ Reliance Quality Management System

FARMINGDALE, NY (01-10-08): EtQ has announced the implementation of EtQ Quality Management System at STEC; a global engineering and manufacturing company, offering high-reliability OEM memory and storage solutions with extensive value-added services to satisfy the needs of any applications.

STEC recognized the need for a strong quality management system to help them maintain the high-level of quality and compliance. STEC required a system to manage not only their quality operations but also scale the system to meet other business requirements such as sales, supplier quality, quotes, orders and shipment.

Using EtQ's robust set of modules such as Audits, CAPA, Calibration & Maintenance, Reporting, Change Management, Document Control, and Employee Training, STEC will be able to automate their quality process, integrate quality to their operation and collaborate across the enterprise - while providing a level of flexibility to configure the software to meet their specific business needs.

"Understanding the urgent need for a compliance at STEC, EtQ was able to implement a quality management system within a matter of weeks," states Morgan Palmer, Chief Technology Officer at EtQ. "Using EtQ's proven implementation methods and the EtQ Designer graphical administration interface, companies like STEC can create workflows, forms, fields, sections, even the look and feel in a short span of time."

EtQ is excited to work with STEC to provide a robust system to help them maximize their investment in ETQ.
