Industry Practitioners Cite Compliance with Regulatory Bodies as Top Driver of Quality Initiatives
HOLMDEL, N.J., March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a Sparta Systems sponsored survey unveiled at the Interphex Conference in New York, recent supplier quality-related headlines have had little impact on managers' day-to-day job functions or companies' overall quality management efforts. Instead, the majority of respondents - 81 percent - reported that compliance with industry regulations remains the number one driver of quality management initiatives, and many have reported an intention to expand these initiatives despite economic pressures.
The survey was conducted in February 2009 amongst approximately 100 users of Sparta Systems' TrackWise(R) enterprise quality management and compliance software.
Additional survey highlights include:
"Simply put, insufficient quality management can be detrimental to a company's brand reputation and bottom line, and forward-thinking companies are recognizing the need for more effective quality processes to govern their global operations," said Jim McGowan, CEO of Sparta Systems. "While the economic downturn and recent product recalls have made this front-page news, life science leaders understand that proactively automating quality management processes across the global enterprise can result in both a significant return on quality investment and a reputation for putting customer safety at the forefront despite challenging economic times."
