TAMPA, FL: Pilgrim Quality Solutions, a provider of enterprise quality management software (EQMS) and services for the Life Sciences has announced its certification for ISO 9001:2008 after an audit of the company’s internal operations.

The ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification demonstrates Pilgrim’s compliance with strict quality management principles within its software business. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards for quality management systems (QMS) serve as the basis for the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Clinical Practices (GCP), and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) required by most government regulatory bodies.

Life Sciences organizations develop life-saving products including medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biologics that need to have consistent, high-quality performance and meet various industry regulations. Pilgrim incorporates ISO quality management process standards into its EQMS software development to mirror this commitment to high quality and regulatory compliance.

It leverages EQMS platform, SmartSolve, to automate key elements of its own corporate quality management program. SmartSolve streamlines numerous quality management processes, including those for managing audits, CAPAs, complaints, nonconformities, inspections, suppliers, changes, documents and training certifications.

“Achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification spotlights Pilgrim’s structured and systematic approach to the design, development, implementation and servicing of our SmartSolve solutions. For years, Pilgrim has been building software solutions that reflect the best practices outlined in ISO quality standards and implementing those solutions into clients’ organizations. Our customers value quality and dedicate resources to proactively managing it,” says Thierry Durand, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pilgrim.
