TAMPA, FL-Pilgrim Software Inc., provider of enterprise compliance and quality management (ECQM) software solutions, has announced it is joining with a diverse group of industry experts, officials and educators to present “Industry in Session,” the 2009 Pilgrim educational webinar series.

This yearlong series of complimentary educational webinars has been designed not only for Pilgrim customers, their suppliers and partners but for all regulated enterprises concerned with compliance, quality, risk and safety management issues.

The 2009 focus is on a range of topics surrounding these areas, as well as some of today’s most talked-about trends and developments such as environmental concerns, corporate governance and other security risks.

Pilgrim recognizes that with budget constraints introduced in the current economy, many employees and companies may not receive the on-going education about trends or changes impacting their organization and industry. Pilgrim presents the webinar opportunities as a complimentary online series to allow as many individuals to participate as interested.

“This cost-free educational series is our way of ‘giving back’ to the communities that we work with. Our webinars are always accessible to members of all the industries and communities we serve, not ‘sold out’ or ‘too costly’ for the corporate budget,” says Nikki Willett, Pilgrim’s vice president of marketing and regulatory affairs. “Attendees can watch the presentations live from their own desks, or on-demand, when they have available time. This allows Pilgrim to continue to help the community stay educated on the latest hot topics, issues and trends.”

Pilgrim will present educational webinars every month throughout 2009. The webinars will include a combination of live presentations and interactive Q&A sessions. Presenters will discuss their areas of expertise, share case studies and lessons learned, and offer tips and tricks for enhancing your operation’s success.
