Sparta Systems Wins Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s 13th Annual “Pros to Know” Award

Recognizes EQMS Industry Veteran Mohan Ponnudurai for Exceptional Leadership Among Supply Chain Executives
Hamilton, NJ Feb 14, 2013 – Sparta Systems, Inc., a market leader in enterprise quality management software (EQMS) solutions, announced today that Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, an international B2B publication that provides mission-critical editorial to address the issues and challenges of the supply chain, has named industry solution director, Mohan Ponnudurai, a winner of its 2013 “Pros to Know” awards.
With more than 20 years of experience in the electronic and high tech manufacturing sectors, Mr. Ponnudurai brings incredible depth to customers in these verticals looking to implement EQMS solutions. Mr. Ponnudurai was recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s editors for his exceptional leadership in Sparta Systems’ alignment with industry trends while helping clients understand changes in regulatory and business environments.
“The number of issues that can present themselves in one’s business truly run the gamut—from a dysfunctional product component found within a manufacturer’s tier three level of the supply chain to clarifying a business’s procurement strategy for reduced costs,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “It’s not always initially clear as to how broad the scale of the supply chain and its challenges really are. If there are those present in the industry who are working to overcome supplier quality management issues and grow the global supply chain at the same time, they should get the recognition they deserve for their achievements.”
“Being recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive validates Sparta Systems’ expertise in EQMS including supplier quality management, supplier corrective action requests (SCAR), supplier and vendor audits and nonconformance management,” said Mike Jovanis, Vice President of Product Management and Strategy at Sparta Systems. “In a time when organizations are pressed to do more with less, it is important for supply chain professionals to be educated on the risks as well as best practices associated with production and supply chain processes. Mohan’s ability to provide such a high level of guidance and insight to electronics and high tech manufacturers and EQMS professionals makes him a ‘Pro to Know’.”
Ponnudurai was also recognized for his knowledge on best practices for compliance, process efficiencies and cost control, and was selected to speak at the 21st Annual International Conference on ISO 9000 and QMS, taking place February 18-19, 2013 in San Diego, California.
