Charlotte, N.C.-based EQ2, LLC, announces the release of version 8 of its HEMS CMMS (computerized maintenance management system). With this release, EQ2, LLC has focused on new functionality and user interfaces their hospital clients have requested. In fact, EQ2 officials say, HTM, facilities/support services, imaging, IT, and supply chain department users have all contributed to make the new HEMS release even more effective and easier to use.
