Globalization, escalating costs, increasingly complex supply-chain, the emergence of mega-retailers, ever-changing consumer demand and retailer and regulatory requirements are putting more pressure on the consumer goods, CPG, home and personal care products and food & beverage industries. To thrive in this environment, manufacturers must develop new ways to become more consumer-driven and stay ahead of the competition, while further establishing a foundation for profitable growth.
As the focus shifts from product differentiation to differentiation created through business process excellence, technology can act as the key enabler in improving efficiency and overall effectiveness throughout the product value chain. Adopting technology to drive critical decisions, including quality and safety and improving regulatory compliance, can help companies gain a definite competitive edge. Pilgrim equips its customers to meet three major challenges. With Pilgrim’s solution you:
Ensure Regulatory Compliance
Companies face increasing frequency of inspections, regulatory warnings, and product recalls. The span of regulatory requirements include FDA CFRs, EU Directives, FD&C Act (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act), Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008, FPLA (Fair Packaging and Labeling Act), cGMP, FHSA (Federal Hazardous Substances Act), HACCP, ISO 22000 (Food Safety), ANSI (American National Standards Institute), ASTM International, and more.
Pilgrim’s solution helps ensure compliance with these regulations, thereby minimizing risk, avoiding the potential for costly recalls, and securing brand reputation. Its pre-built tools enable electronic signatures and automate regulatory recordkeeping, and help your company conduct safety, risk and compliance monitoring by establishing flexible, global workflows for product complaint resolution, nonconformances, CAPAs and audits.
Homegrown, non-integrated and manual management systems require paper-and labor-intensive processes and result in a lack of data visibility across the enterprise. Impacts include higher IT administrative and overhead costs, less IT productivity and ineffective resource utilization.
Pilgrim’s solution integrates people, processes, products and systems under one automated enterprise solution. This provides for timely data across the enterprise, reduces risk and reduces the labor requirements by eliminating paper-intensive processes, and lowers administrative and overhead cost.
Reduce Cycle Time, Improve Efficiencies & Boost Productivity
Organizations are pressured to do more with less -- less time and tighter operating budgets. Companies are falling victim to the time and cost of handling documents, change management, identifying and resolving problems in product development and introductions, managing supplier quality, maintaining equipment and ensuring a trained workforce.
Pilgrim’s solution interfaces with a company’s internal systems (including ERP/MRP, MES, HR, CRM, PLM and PDM), to ensure that compliance and quality are part of the entire product lifecycle management. The result is streamlined decision making, lowered costs for bringing new products to market, and the elimination of product stalls and recalls.
