Gedeon Richter Selects TrackWise Digital to Improve Quality Management Visibility and Collaboration June 21, 2021 Leading pharmaceutical company implements digital QMS to harmonize, standardize and centralize processes HAMILTON, NJ – June 21, 2021 – Sparta Systems, a Honeywell Company, today announced that Gedeon Richter, a European specialty pharmaceutical company, has implemented the TrackWise Digital® quality management platform at three of its manufacturing sites in Hungary. Gedeon Richter selected TrackWise Digital to harmonize, centralize and standardize its quality management system. The implementation will occur in two phases—phase one included quality events, corrective and preventive action (CAPA), audit management and complaint handling. “The implementation of a new software solution can sometimes be a wary undertaking,” said Ervin Szabo, system analyst at Gedeon Richter. “However, Sparta was aligned with our goals from the beginning and the team’s experience and approach helped solidify us as partners in this QMS implementation. With TrackWise Digital, we’ve seen improved visibility and accountability. We’ve also experienced a shift in culture, where leadership is seeing the process firsthand, not just the outcome. We are looking forward to nurturing this culture of quality further with Sparta’s continued support and collaboration.” Phase two of Gedeon Richter’s implementation will bring the addition of change control, training management and supplier quality management. TrackWise Digital’s AI-enabled quality management platform provides an intuitive quality experience for the end user. Combined with more than twenty-five years of experience and best practice processes, TrackWise Digital helps regulated organizations streamline quality management while ensuring efficient compliance. “We are thrilled to welcome Gedeon Richter to the Sparta family,” said Stephen McCarthy, vice president of digital innovation at Sparta. “Collaboration is key to effective quality management and by consolidating systems, Gedeon Richter has a single source of truth and better visibility across their business.” About Gedeon Richter Gedeon Richter Plc.
