EtQ Document Control Software enables users to manage and improve processes for the creation, approval, distribution, and archiving of controlled documents. The solution helps organizations properly maintain important information within document types as manuals, work instructions, procedures, forms, product and inspection specifications, job descriptions, and test methods, while ensuring they keep up to date. Integration with Microsoft Office allows users to manage and integrate Microsoft Office files with EtQ forms.
EtQ Document Control Software helps ensure that businesses follow revision controlled procedures which are centrally managed, and meet the guidelines for frameworks such as ISO. The solution routes SOPs (standard operating procedures) and other records through a routing process for review and approval including drafting, review, final approvals, release, and approved phases. Users are able to control which individual is responsible for each phase, their editing and reading permissions in each phase, and the time they have to complete each one. Users are sent automated notifications if there is a request to review or approve a newly released document, or to update an existing one.
EtQ provides organizations with a central repository for controlled documents which allows for the importing of existing documents, including attachments and metadata, and the linking of related documents. Users can assign documents to specific individuals, groups or roles, including various routing options such as parallel, sequential, and voting. EtQ automatically records and displays the electronic signatures of approvers, and the intuitive workflow display shows document status. Users are able to setup and automate a periodic review of specific released documents, as well as the archiving of old revisions.
