    Holmdel, NJ - April 15, 2008 - Sparta Systems, Inc. (Sparta), the maker of TrackWise®, and the market leader in enterprise quality and compliance management software, today announced Helsinn Healthcare SA, a Swiss-based pharmaceutical licensing company, has selected TrackWise to standardize quality assurance practices in all of its companies and sites across Switzerland and Ireland. The goal is a singular, centralized standard for quality assurance and compliance management corporate-wide.

    "We selected Sparta because it represents the highest level of quality management software, and it is distributed all over the world,” said Dr .Giorgio Calderari, Chief Operating Officer, Helsinn Healthcare SA. "The TrackWise system will allow us to harmonize all quality assurance procedures across our businesses for better performance, stricter adherence to our standard operating procedures and better overall visibility into our global operations."

    The company plans a staged rollout of TrackWise across the organization to support a number of core processes including deviations, Change Control, corrective and preventative action (CAPA), out of specifications (and out of trend), complaints, audit, training and supplier qualification.

    Accelerate collection of information among different departments

    • Better compliance with timelines
    • Easier trend and risk analyses
    • More effective communication of information among different departments
    • Enhance presentation of data at customer and regulatory audits
