Tampa, FL – May 2, 2012 -- Pilgrim Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of Enterprise Risk,
Compliance and Quality Management (ERCQM) software solutions, today announced the availability of
SmartSolve®9.1, the latest and most enhanced version of its integrated process automation platform.
The latest version of SmartSolve contains a diverse set of enhancements to help meet users’ operational
and compliance requirements. The real power of SmartSolve 9.1, however, is its configurability.
While out-of-the-box best practices are important tools used in meeting organizational compliance and
regulatory requirements, they don’t allow for the organizational uniqueness found in every enterprise.
SmartSolve 9.1 provides user-friendly configuration tools and best practice templates built from years of
industry experience, providing shortened implementation cycles, rapid return on investment and reduced
cost of quality and compliance. The enhanced user interface provides for improved usability and
increased end-user productivity, while further reducing costs.
SmartSolve 9.1 includes enhanced capabilities in Audit management, Corrective & Preventive Action
(CAPA), Customer Complaints, Document and SOP management, and employee Training and
Certification. The release also includes additional reporting functions. The primary enhancement is a
series of improvements to Pilgrim’s SmartStudio™ business application configuration solution which
reduces the complexity and logic of enhancing, designing and building new compliance-centric business
applications while allowing for enterprise uniqueness.
The SmartSolve 9.1 delivery of SmartStudio is the foundation on which Pilgrim will deliver its expanded
Business Intelligence offering, focused on quality analytics and KPIs. Additionally, the SmartStudio
foundation enables Pilgrim to offer its customers mobile solutions, allowing users to work wherever they
are, further enhancing the usability of the solution and end-user productivity.
“We recognize that every company’s needs differ based on industry regulations, organizational
requirements or product specifications,” said Atulya Risal, Pilgrim’s Chief Technology Officer. “Users need
quick and easy tools to enhance their risk, compliance and quality applications to meet their end-users’
needs. As such, this platform update includes technology that allows our customers to create an unlimited
number of risk and compliance-centric applications within a single, centralized platform.”
SmartSolve 9.1 also provides compliance features aimed at simplifying Regulatory Reporting.
Administrators can now merge the FDA CDRH dictionary into the application to expedite the complaints
submissions process. A new HTML-based MedDEV Incident reporting form has also been added to the
system to support requirements for European Union eSubmissions, as well as the Adverse Drug Event
(ADE) Decisions Tree, Medwatch form and MeDRA Dictionary for pharmaceutical companies.
SmartSolve’s 9.1 user interface enhancements include directional icons and buttons that simplify the
document review process within the document management solution. Document collaboration tooling
enables collaboration between Microsoft Word and Excel documents as well.
“Pilgrim is always looking to enhance its solution and user experience for its customers, including keeping
up with the latest technology,” said Risal. “The new features and enhancements in SmartSolve 9.1 allow
SmartSolve customers to expedite their business processes while enabling compliance with industry
regulations and manufacturing the highest quality products.”
