• TrackWise Supplier Quality & Vendor Management System

    For Medical Device manufacturers, having visibility into the critical supply chain processes, starting with the raw material suppliers and vendors through point-of-sale is a major factor to success.  Producing poor products or wrong products that require repair or replacement erodes customer sentiment and customer satisfaction levels go down. 

    Sparta Systems’ vendor management system for medical device manufacturers offers features such as supplier scorecards, supplier qualification best practices, manage the approved supplier list (ASL), and tracking systems for supplier non-conformances and resulting CAPA.  

    The TrackWise supplier qualification and vendor tracking software for medical device manufacturers increases the efficiency of supplier and vendor selection by both tracking and managing the qualification and approval process for new potential vendors and parts while avoiding redundant evaluations.  TrackWise enables complete maintenance and transparency of all previous vendor records, making them available  for reference across the enterprise. Supplier qualification is further enhanced by our advanced auditing capabilities to allow offline execution of audits and generation of audit reports and seamless integration back into corporate TrackWise.
