Tampa, FL – June 1, 2007 -- Pilgrim Software, Inc., the 2007 recipient of the North American Enterprise Compliance and Quality Management (ECQM) Company of the Year Award, has published an industry white paper, produced by the global consulting firm of Frost & Sullivan, discussing the inherent benefits of an ECQM system for life sciences companies. The document also provides a brief summary of Pilgrim Software’s best practices and value propositions within the ECQM space.
“Pilgrim Software: Streamlining Compliance & Quality Management across the Enterprise,” is now available on the Pilgrim Software website (www.pilgrimsoftware.com). Citing today’s competitive pressures and tight profit margins, the 20-page white paper outlines the current need among life sciences companies to leverage information technology in a significant way to optimize processes. It examines how Pilgrim provides an innovative approach to meeting this need, through its SmartSolve® solution, by moving beyond compliance and quality to operational excellence.
The paper’s conclusion summarizes: “The key challenge (among life sciences companies) is to implement a solution that covers all functions within an enterprise, address regulatory compliance needs as well as manage quality by playing a central role. The collaboration that is required to facilitate new product development, to reduce variability in manufacturing, to minimize risk and to balance customer demand with supply, necessitates the need for an integrated platform to manage all exceptions. Pilgrim Software delivers the industry’s best and most complete compliance and quality management solution that connects and automates the complete flow of quality related information across the enterprise.”
“Growing expectations for compliance within regulated industries, as well as increasing competition among leading players, has stepped up the urgency for implementing integrated management solutions,” said Nikki Willett, Pilgrim’s Vice President of Marketing & Regulatory Products. “This white paper from Frost & Sullivan is a helpful narrative outlining the need for, and the benefits of, an ECQM platform that incorporates an unrelenting focus on process improvement and best practices into its solutions. Any organization in the life sciences industry can appreciate and learn from the principles discussed in this white paper. ”
