This closed-loop CAPA management system has been designed to allow users in any department to initiate a corrective and preventive action to address and resolve an issue. The CAPA Management System can help you identify the occurrence of non-conformances, customer complaints, incidents, discrepancies, out-of-specification events or other quality issues, according to Pilgrim Software. It has also been designed to facilitate communication and improve workflow, offering e-mail and project management tools.
Meanwhile, an investigation process allows users to map preventive actions to their root causes to eliminate problems at their source and prevent recurrence. A “review verification” mode can be set up to ensure that a CAPA has been effective. The software integrates with MES, ERP and LIMS systems, and can be integrated with Pilgrim’s document management system. It is part of Pilgrim’s SmartSolve and Q&MIS solutions, which include the SmartComplaints enterprise-wide complaints management solution.
