Varian Medical Systems Selects EtQ Reliance Quality Management System for Medical Device

FARMINGDALE, NY (04-03-07): EtQ has announced the implementation of EtQ Reliance at Varian Medical Systems, the world leader in the design and manufacturing of equipment and software for treating cancer.

After an extensive and competitive review, Varian Medical Systems selected EtQ Reliance for their ability to be configured, without programming, to meet their specific business needs for Complaints handling and Corrective Action and Preventive Action processes.

"Using EtQ, Varian will be able to graphically configure the system in a matter of weeks to adopt not only their business processes, but go even further by configuring the look and feel of the EtQ Reliance product", says Glenn McCarty, Chief Executive Officer of EtQ. "EtQ's unmatched drag and drop administration interface enables companies to drastically reduce the time to implementation and maintenance." Mr. McCarty cited one case where an enterprise rollout was configured with over 125 workflows in a matter of five days.

Key factors in Varian's decision to select EtQ include the best-in-class out-of-the-box workflows to meet the quality and compliance needs of the Medical Device industry, as well as EtQ's leading Risk Assessment module that builds risk mitigation directly into the business processes. Varian's implementation of EtQ Reliance will be globally rolled out across all facilities within their organization. EtQ looks forward to continued success with Varian Medical Systems as they utilize EtQ Reliance software.
