Pilgrim Software Names Adlib as Document Transformation Partner

Improve Life Sciences Processing Cycle Time through OCR PDF Conversion.

Tampa, FL - Oct 26, 2010 - Pilgrim Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of Enterprise Risk, Compliance and Quality Management (ERCQM) software solutions, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Adlib Software, the global leader in document transformation solutions that specializes in highly regulated industries. Through this partnership, Pilgrim and Adlib will enable life sciences customers to improve processing cycle time with automatic form intake for patient device records, complaint/adverse event records, and electronic document management by eliminating data entry through optical character recognition OCR PDF conversion - scanning paper documents and transforming them into editable and searchable PDFs.

Integrating Adlib's recognition and transformation capabilities with Pilgrim's Complaints Management, Document Management and Patient Device Records (PDR) solutions will support the efficiencies and effectiveness of enterprise quality, compliance and risk management initiatives. These joint technologies will increase the speed of overall processing of "time-sensitive" records, improve overall workforce efficiency and performance for entering and maintaining records, reduce errors in data duplication and improve the overall compliance to HIPAA and IT security.

In addition to its proven solutions for complaints management and document control, Pilgrim provides an integrated solution for Patient Device Registry (PDR) management to accurately manage the lifecycle of patient device tracking. Pilgrim's PDR provides an integrated view of a medical device manufacturer's patient device data throughout the lifetime of the device - from intake to follow-ups to quality audits to patient relationships and by integration to key compliance and quality business systems such as Complaint Handling, Corrective Action (CAPA), CRM and ERP.

Adlib's OCR PDF conversion capabilities makes it easy to convert any type of paper document into editable and searchable PDF and text files, all within an automated workflow. It eliminates the need for costly manual review and reduces the risks associated with errors. Integration with Pilgrim's ERCQM platform will boost the accuracy of patient device records and other data and documents, and further drive productivity among Pilgrim's customers, thereby increasing the effectiveness of operations while supporting compliance with internal processes and regulatory bodies.

"By joining forces with Pilgrim, Adlib drives innovation in a very specific and highly critical area for life science organizations' overall business processes with a document transformation solution that provides added value for both our customers and theirs," said Peter Duff, President and CEO of Adlib Software. "Using automated technology to process documents, whether legacy documents, patient device records, or adverse events reports, means that every step can be controlled, monitored and reported resulting in improved business efficiencies."

"Pilgrim welcomes the integration of these products to extend the value of our SmartSolve® solution, providing our customers increased process efficiency through further compliance automation," said Atulya Risal, Pilgrim's Chief Technology Officer. "With this strategic relationship, Pilgrim is fulfilling its promise to its customers to continue to innovate and provide a platform for improved regulatory compliance and increased customer satisfaction."
