Micrus Endovascular Selects Pilgrim Software

TAMPA, FL-Pilgrim Software Inc., provider of enterprise compliance and quality management (ECQM) software solutions, has announced that Micrus Endovascular Corp., a manufacturer and marketer of both implantable and disposable medical devices used in the treatment of cerebral vascular diseases, will implement Pilgrim’s SmartSolve solutions through Pilgrim’s on-demand SaaS model.

Micrus Endovascular has purchased Pilgrim’s solution for document control, employee training and certification management. These automated systems will be hosted by Pilgrim on-demand.

In an effort to increase operational efficiencies and streamline compliance, Micrus recognized the need to replace its existing manual training management systems, with a single, robust, enterprisewide system that could help automate all of its training processes associated with GMP and FDA requirements. Likewise, Micrus chose to replace its previously implemented customized document management system in an effort to increase efficiencies, and to take advantage of Pilgrim’s document management solution because it integrates directly with the training system. This further reduces the cost of integration between two disparate systems that would have to be created otherwise.

“We chose to go with Pilgrim due to its robust off-the-shelf solutions and their reputation of superior customer service over the competition,” says Fritz Ender, Micrus’ director of quality assurance. “Pilgrim’s training system suited our requirements very closely. Additionally, by implementing SmartDoc with SmartTrain in tandem, we eliminate the need for integration into a separate document management system.”
