Tampa, FL– April 1, 2015 –Pilgrim Quality Solutions, a leading global provider of enterprise quality management software (EQMS) and services for the Life Sciences, proudly announces its certification for ISO 9001:2008 after an extensive audit of the company’s internal operations. This ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System certification demonstrates Pilgrim’s compliance with strict quality management principles within its software business. Pilgrim is one of only a few quality management software providers in the world who are currently ISO 9001:2008 certified.
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.
“Achieving ISO 9001:2008 certification spotlights Pilgrim’s structured and systematic approach to the design, development, implementation and servicing of our SmartSolve solutions,” said Thierry Durand, Pilgrim’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “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. This achievement attests that Pilgrim has this same dedication to quality.”
Pilgrim leverages its commercially available 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.
TÜV SÜD America, an internationally accredited certification body, audited the quality management system at Pilgrim and certified Pilgrim Quality Solutions in accordance with ISO 9001:2008. The official certificate can be viewed here.
