Global Storage Networking Supplier Selects Agile 9.2 PLM to Drive Compliance with WEEE and RoHS Directives
"Agile's expertise in the electronics and high-tech industry is a great advantage to us as we continue to navigate the ever-changing and increasingly complex realm of environmental regulations," said Dominic Cortella, director, reliability and quality assurance, QLogic. "Agile Product Governance and Compliance provides us with the ability to determine product compliance faster, provide certificates of compliance to customers and make alternate source decisions more rapidly."
QLogic's products are delivered to small, medium and large enterprises around the world, powering solutions from leading companies like Cisco, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, NEC, Network Appliance and Sun Microsystems. Sold directly to OEMs and through QLogic-authorized distributors and resellers, QLogic customers rely on the company's SAN infrastructure technology to deliver storage solutions to IT professionals in virtually every business sector. Agile Software will assist QLogic's efforts to ensure compliance with environmental regulations such as the European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulation and Waste of Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) directive. The ability of Agile PG&C to track and demonstrate varying degrees of compliance requirements early in the product lifecycle will provide QLogic critical information for designing and manufacturing its products, as well as supporting its customers in their compliance efforts.
"Electronics manufacturers like QLogic continue to face competitive markets around the globe that require high tech companies to relentlessly accelerate innovation, reduce costs and improve quality. New environmental regulations only compound this challenge," said Jay Fulcher, Agile president and CEO. "Agile 9.2 enables companies such as QLogic to improve product profitability, gain greater product insight and control, and manage environmental compliance throughout the product lifecycle."
