TAMPA, FL, April 14-Pilgrim Software Inc., provider of enterprise compliance and quality management (ECQM) software solutions, has been named the 2008 North American Enterprise Compliance & Quality Management Company of the Year within the Life Science industry. Frost & Sullivan, a growth consulting company, awarded the honor.

Pilgrim was cited by Frost & Sullivan for the second consecutive year in recognition of its work in the medical devices segment. Pilgrim has sustained this momentum by expanding its concentration in the Life Sciences vertical and venturing into new segments such as other FDA regulated and healthcare industries, while continuing to drive value for its existing customers.

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence within its industry in terms of business development, competitive strategy and customer satisfaction. The award recognizes outstanding management and consistent growth as well as high quality products and/or services and positive social and economic impact on local and national communities.

“Pilgrim Software’s ability to collate its past experiences in deployment from diverse end-user industries into a best practices approach in the form of pre-configured solution is highly appreciated by users,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Padmakumar L Sundaran.

“While most peer group companies provide a tool kit approach to address quality issues, Pilgrim Software remains a benchmark for its superior solution offerings that are 'out-of-the-box' through a best practices approach that provides a seamless integration platform to users across varied functions, resulting in enterprise-wide visibility of data,” Sundaran adds.
