SmartSolve’s focus is on ensuring regulatory compliance and quality from product ideation through the manufacturing process and beyond. The integration between different modules facilitates the sharing of information and development of closed-loop quality management processes.

With the release of version 9.1, SmartSolve’s quality management solutions for non-conformance/CAPA management, document management, change management, complaint management, supplier quality management, quality risk tracking, audit management, and training management were transformed.

The new release added configuration capabilities for its workflows, forms, and data entities, which eliminates the need for customization that some customers had with the previous version. This configuration capability enhances Pilgrim Software customers' ability to upgrade and stay current with new regulatory and process requirements. Lastly, this release offers enhanced support for process harmonization enabling enterprise rollouts.

Over seven years ago, Pilgrim Quality Solutions rolled out its cloud offering and has since positioned itself as one of the leading providers of cloud-based EQMS solutions in the life sciences space. Meeting regulatory compliance and validation standards, Pilgrim offers customers a fully administered environment which can be deployed on a client-specific or shared application platform at the Pilgrim Data Center.

We expect Pilgrim Quality Solutions to continue investing in its solutions, both in the depth of SmartSolve’s functionality and in its cloud-based capabilities. As the company is intent on closing and tightening the quality loop in the coming years, it’s likely that the market will see improvements to the solution’s upstream quality capabilities, mobility, business intelligence, predictive analytics, and reporting.
