ETQ has developed several integration scenarios specifically for SAP implementations.

SAP is the dominant enterprise resource planning(ERP) system in industry today. Many organizations utilize SAP for all ERP needs, as well as controlling many of their critical operations. ETQ is a leading provider of Quality Management Software(QMS) and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) solutions for many industries and ETQ Reliance Software has the robust workflow capabilities to automate the business processes associated with quality and EHS management.

ETQ Adds Value to SAP

ETQ’s workflow and best-practices approach to quality and EHS complement an organization’s SAP implementation. Many organizations utilize SAP's transactional approach to manufacturing operations, while using ETQ’s robust workflow to manage quality assurance associated with those transactions. Key benefits of ETQ integration with SAP include:

Identify SAP Master Data

  • SAP is the source system for employees, products, suppliers, and customers: ETQ can pull this master source data.
  • Eliminate dual entry of master data: by pulling master data, you can provide seamless entry into ETQ.
  • Facilitate consistent reporting and data exchange: Integration of master data means better business intelligence.

Seamless Part of the Overall SAP Process

  • ETQ enhances and extends SAP: ETQ is able to wrap workflow-based business process automation around the transactional events in SAP, adding a robust complementary layer to Quality and EHS within SAP.

  • Leverage SAP-certified, bundled connection points: ETQ is a certified integration partner with SAP, and is able to utilize the connection points that are proven and certified by SAP, reducing integration complexity.
  • Most (if not all) of the configuration is in ETQ: ETQ is a highly configurable solution that enables the user to modify many aspects of the process without programming. This allows business users to fine-tune their processes that are connected to SAP and make these connections meet their unique business needs.
