Award Recognizes ETQ’s Work Helping Global Climate Innovator Trane Technologies Automate Quality Processes and Achieve Data-Driven Visibility

BURLINGTON, Mass. Sept. 13, 2023 – ETQ, part of Hexagon, the leading quality management system (QMS) provider, today announced that it was named a Digital Transformation Award recipient, as part of the annual NextGen Solution Provider Awards hosted by Supply Chain Management Review. The award recognizes ETQ’s role in helping Trane Technologies, a global climate innovator, leverage the ETQ Reliance QMS system to enable standard and consistent product quality, better collaboration with suppliers and stronger efficiency and visibility.

The award will be presented to David Isaacson, Vice President, Product Marketing, ETQ, during the NextGen Supply Chain Conference, taking place in Chicago, Oct 16-18, 2023.

“We’re thrilled to be named a NextGen Digital Transformation Solution Provider,” said Isaacson. “As our work with Trane Technologies demonstrates, the key to effective digital transformation initiatives is a strong partnership between world-class providers and leading enterprises willing to disrupt the status quo, and leverage today’s digital tools to create a culture of innovation.”

With 30,000 employees, and 100 plants, Trane Technologies was committed to optimizing the ETQ Reliance QMS as a data superhighway, facilitating data transfer outside of silos and throughout all areas of its complex business operations.
