Hamilton, New Jersey – Sparta Systems Inc. officials announced the company has received ISO 9001:2008 certification for the design and distribution of its software. The Company is the first and only major EQMS vendor to have received this certification.
Certification to ISO 9001 requires an accredited third party auditing organization to thoroughly review the Company's internal quality management system processes, to ensure that they are capable of consistently delivering a service that meets customers' needs and expectations.
"I'm very happy to be able to congratulate Sparta on achieving certification," commented Dr. Nigel Croft, President of TCA Global and International Chair of the ISO Technical Subcommittee responsible for ISO 9001. "Having recently spent time with Sparta personnel, it is clear that they treat this as much more than a question of 'compliance to a standard', but as a way to provide confidence in the products and services they deliver to their customers. This requires a real commitment and strong customer focus throughout the organization, from the Boardroom on down to all of the operational activities."
Though recently certified, the ISO Quality Management System (QMS) Standard has been the basis for Sparta Systems' internal QMS for a number of years, as many of its customers are in highly regulated industries, which require their own compliance to the standard.
"As one of the leading EQMS providers, it is quite natural that we are at the forefront in achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification," said Eileen Martinson, CEO of Sparta Systems. "And as a strategic partner to our customers, it is only fitting that we help them save time and money by officially becoming certified, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to a strong culture of quality," concluded Ms. Martinson.
