PALO ALTO and SUNNYVALE, CA-MetricStream, provider of global governance, risk, compliance (GRC) and quality management solutions, and SigmaQuest, provider of on-demand, scalable solutions for product quality management, are partnering on the delivery of end-to-end product quality management and compliance solutions.

Military and aerospace, electronics manufacturers and FDA-regulated industries that use both companies’ software solutions can get instant feedback on quality throughout their products’ lifecycles, pinpoint the root cause of errors, fix processes so errors don’t reoccur and prove compliance to stringent quality requirements from FDA, FAA and other regulatory organizations.

“There is great synergy between the SigmaQuest and MetricStream product offerings,” says Nader Fathi, chief executive officer of SigmaQuest. “SigmaQuest offers the data collection and analytical piece of the equation which enables manufacturers to detect, fix and avoid quality problems throughout product development and end of life lifecycles via automatic data collection and powerful root-cause analysis capabilities. MetricStream, on the other hand, helps companies ensure that processes are streamlined and fixed so the same issues aren’t repeated, and it helps companies demonstrate compliance to various regulatory organizations. As a result, this partnership is of great value, particularly for those companies building electronics-based products for regulated industries.”

“Ensuring product quality and customer satisfaction is paramount to all businesses,” says Shellye Archambeau, chief executive officer of MetricStream. “We are happy to align with SigmaQuest as it provides key product quality, supplier quality and root cause analysis data. Further, SigmaQuest’s upfront manufacturing and product quality information and MetricStream’s corrective and preventive action (CAPA), non-conformance management (NCM) and supplier quality solutions will enable our mutual customers to ship better products and lower costs and risks associated with noncompliance.”
