Sparta Systems and UL Announce Innovation Partnership to Expand the Ecosystem of Quality and Learning Management Systems for Life Sciences

Leading organizations bring together comprehensive quality management and learning ecosystem for life sciences organizations

HAMILTON, N.J., May 22, 2019 – Today, Sparta Systems, the leading provider of quality management solutions for life sciences, and UL, a world leading safety science organization, have announced an innovation partnership to bring together Sparta’s cloud-enabled quality management system (QMS), TrackWise Digital, and UL’s learning management system (LMS), ComplianceWire®.

The two companies will innovate together to create strong linkage between quality content, learning, human performance and related quality management processes.

Up to 80 percent of the root causes of deviations in the life sciences industry can be traced to human error, and the most common corrective action is retraining. 

Training is also one of the highest contributors to total cost of quality.

Therefore, it has become increasingly important to deliver learning in more efficient and effective ways to achieve quality management objectives.

This innovation will allow customers to connect their QMS and LMS capabilities seamlessly and realize more value than with two systems operating independently.

With a more streamlined process, customers can enhance human performance, support compliance, increase efficiencies and better enable employees in their day-to-day tasks.

“We’re thrilled to innovate with UL to provide our customers with a comprehensive solution that includes robust learning management capabilities, delivering benefits in terms of both productivity and compliance.  UL’s ComplianceWire is one of the leading LMS applications for life sciences and is a perfect complement to our market-leading TrackWise Digital application,” said Dana Jones, CEO of Sparta Systems.

“We are excited to be working with Sparta to expand the ecosystem of our learning management tools with their quality management solution,” said Scott Barnard, Managing Director, PURE Learning at UL. “Many life sciences organizations already have systems for Quality Management and Learning Management, but through this innovation partnership they can operate seamlessly together. This can help reduce risk, improve employee efficiency in their learning activities and provide better visibility into critical data that can enhance human performance.”
