Last month Sparta Systems, in conjunction with regional partner Synertec Asia, held the first set of a new seminar series that will take place in SE Asia approximately twice a year. The topic in the seminar series was Cost Effective Quality Management Systems. The seminars were held on at the Incontinental in Kuala Lumpur and at the Klapsons Hotel in Singapore. A seminar was also scheduled to take place in Bangkok, but was postponed due to the unfortunate flooding. The seminars were intended to help local industry leaders gain an understanding of the approaches to quality management and assist them in developing, implementing and managing cost-effective Quality Management Systems. Core presentations were given by Jon Reich, Information Systems Manager for Synertec Asia, who discussed how to ensure critical Quality Management System processes are effectively managed, and how to assist your organization to reduce the cost of compliance. Matthew Kopecky, Director of Sales Support for Sparta Systems explored how Enterprise Quality Management Systems allow seamless integration of quality system processes, reducing cost and risk, and ensuring regulatory compliance.
In Malaysia Jon and Matt were joined by Rohani Mohammad, Director / Principal Consultant – Neoconsult, who provided real world examples and case studies from Malaysian companies implementing quality management systems. They were also joined by Thomas Halfmann, Managing Partner & Principal Consultant – HGP, who presented on gaining a greater understanding of IT system quality and compliance requirements, and practical solutions for reducing the cost and effort associated with their management focusing on computer systems validation.
