TAMPA, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Pilgrim Quality Solutions, a leading global provider of enterprise quality management software (QMS) and services for the Life Sciences, today announced that Hardy Diagnostics, a manufacturer of medical devices for clinical and industrial laboratories, has selected Pilgrim to deploy its QMS solutions in the cloud to support Hardy’s quality automation initiatives at its key manufacturing sites and distribution/service centers.
“We selected Pilgrim as our quality solution provider based on its track record of leadership in the Life Sciences arena, and the proven capabilities of its comprehensive, closed-loop platform for quality improvement and regulatory compliance”
Hardy Diagnostics will implement Pilgrim’s SmartSolve® QMS platform as its single source for Quality Compliance management, replacing previous disparate systems and increasing visibility of quality processes across the enterprise. It will deploy the integrated SmartSolve solutions deployed in the Pilgrim Cloud.
“We selected Pilgrim as our quality solution provider based on its track record of leadership in the Life Sciences arena, and the proven capabilities of its comprehensive, closed-loop platform for quality improvement and regulatory compliance,” said Sue Pruett, Director of Quality at Hardy Diagnostics. “We’re confident that the SmartSolve solutions will enable us to streamline ongoing quality processes, better assess potential risk, and drive continuous improvement within our operations as we continue to grow.”
Hardy Diagnostics initially will deploy SmartSolve Document Management that allows employees on-demand access to controlled documents, and will facilitate electronic and mobile-ready change control and approval processes to expedite document lifecycle management. In tandem, the SmartSolve Training Management module will enable better enforcement of standard operating procedures and training, provide for improved visibility of training requirements and reports, and ensure that Hardy Diagnostics maintains a competent, certified, and compliant workforce across the enterprise.
“In today’s highly regulated industries, accuracy of data and real-time document and training management are critical paths to a company’s quality compliance,” said Richard Lowrey, Pilgrim’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our integrated quality and compliance management solutions will help Hardy Diagnostics cost-effectively create, manage and share critical documents, processes, and best practices throughout the entire enterprise, and support compliance with ISO and other regulatory standards.”
Following implementation of Pilgrim’s Document and Training management, Hardy Diagnostics will introduce additional key components of the integrated SmartSolve suite, including solutions for Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) and Nonconformance Management, as well as Audit, Complaints, and Supplier Quality management.
