    Holmdel, NJ - May 2, 2007 – Sparta Systems, Inc., (Sparta) the maker of TrackWise® and the market leader in enterprise quality and compliance management software, today announced that Plus Orthopedics AG, a leading global provider in the joint replacement industry, has selected TrackWise as its enterprise tool for managing deviations, internal and external audits, customer complaints, and corrective and preventive actions (CAPA).

The system will enable the company to electronically record all quality issues and action items in a single, integrated system. TrackWise's built-in workflow tools, integrated reporting and trending, and automated escalation features will help Plus Orthopedics AG to eliminate errors and reduces operational costs.

    "With Sparta Systems we found a competent and reputable partner to support us in our constant improvement process," stated Daniel Kuehler, Quality Assurance Manager at Plus Orthopedics AG. "With TrackWise we will achieve higher quality, reliability, traceability, and faster processes for detecting, addressing, and mitigating our quality related issues. TrackWise supports Plus Orthopedics in achieving its commitment to be a first class orthopedic medical device manufacturer."
