Hamilton, N.J.—Sept. 5, 2014—Sparta Systems, Inc., a provider of enterprise quality management solutions (EQMS), announced that it received ISO 9001:2008 certification for the design and distribution of its software. The company is the first major EQMS vendor to receive this certification.
Certification to ISO 9001 requires an accredited third-party auditing organization to thoroughly review the company's internal quality management system processes, to ensure that it is capable of consistently delivering a service that meets customers' needs and expectations.
"I'm very happy to be able to congratulate Sparta on achieving certification," commented Dr. Nigel Croft, president of TCA Global and international chair of the ISO Technical Subcommittee responsible for ISO 9001. "It is clear that the company treat this as much more than a question of 'compliance to a standard,' but as a way to provide confidence in the products and services it delivers to its customers."
Though recently certified, the ISO Quality Management System (QMS) Standard was the basis for Sparta Systems' internal QMS for a number of years, as many of its customers are in highly regulated industries, which require compliance to the standard.
