Sparta Systems' TrackWise(R) Solution Delivers Workforce Training and Learning Initiatives for Cangene Corporation

HOLMDEL, N.J., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sparta Systems, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise quality and compliance management software,today announced that Cangene Corporation, a biopharmaceutical company that manufactures therapeutic antibody products, has deployed Sparta's TrackWise((R)) Enterprise Quality Management software to deliver its learning and training initiatives across its manufacturing operations in Canada and the United States. After a successful pilot project in certain departments, Cangene is implementing TrackWise Training Manager(TM) as a practical and innovative training management system for all levels of the organization.

The nature of the current global economy has challenged leading biopharmaceutical organizations to find new ways to innovate in the industry. Employee training and learning has become far more than a routine aspect of daily operations at life sciences companies -- the need to educate the workforce is now a crucial component to maximizing productivity and ensuring compliance. Knowing this, Cangene, which maintains state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in North America, identified the need for a software solution that would enable it to provide a training framework relevant to a skilled, motivated and diverse workforce while supporting future growth and long-term business initiatives.

Cangene selected TrackWise Training Manager as an enterprise-wide system that could be tailored to Cangene's specific needs to support employees' self-directed learning initiatives, cross-training and career path development, as well as development of fundamental transferrable skills. The TrackWise solution is enabling the company to manage training curriculums and requirements by job function, automate scheduling of training tasks, track employee training history and qualification status and provide various other key functions that Cangene found critical to the success of its broader employee learning programs.

"Today's biopharmaceutical environment is extremely demanding," said Doug Cable, Senior Director of Human Resources, Cangene Corporation. "With TrackWise software, our employees are actively involved in their own training, while the system records all training information for quality and regulatory purposes. Management and employees have the ability to map out individual growth paths as they progress within the company and to develop skills that will serve them and Cangene in the years to come."

Cangene's implementation of TrackWise software as a training tool was honored with a TrackWise Innovation Award at Sparta's Seventh Annual TrackWise User Conference.

"The training functionality built into our TrackWise enterprise quality management software is proving to be a critical tool for organizations in regulated industries, and we continuously see ways in which companies like Cangene have implemented the software for their own tailored training initiatives," said Mike Jovanis, vice president, Product Management, Sparta Systems. "We plan to work closely with the company as it expands its use of the software to further leverage its investment in TrackWise as a key enterprise solution."
