While it is human nature to zero in on one crisis at a time, more business analysts agree we must juggle the world's most pressing problems all at once. Thankfully, due to advanced technology and the harnessing of data, cross-industry convergence can work - and Sparta has been doing it by not only addressing environmental concerns, but health concerns too.
Part of convergence includes collaboration and Sparta has demonstrated that it has strong partners. Bringing together experts in multiple disciplines related to science, the environment, and health means that Sparta is positioned as a company that can do the following: differentiate products and services, improve customer experiences, and drive sustainability and efficiency.
Currently, the Sparta team is customizing its technology to help multiple business sectors. At the same time, the company is working diligently on new technology that could make it easier for those in remote areas of the world to receive quick diagnosis and ultimately proper treatment for what ails them. The company's collaboration with Metrikus is evolving so that Sparta can advance its efforts in helping building managers keep indoor spaces energy efficient, as well as healthy for occupants.
Evolving from an environmental technology company to a company that addresses both health of the planet and health of humankind presents a growth opportunity for Sparta. With both personal health and environment health top-of-mind, individuals and businesses will be looking for effective, efficient technologies.
Along with its many partners, Sparta is proud to be part of the move towards safeguarding environmental and human health.
