Tampa Software Company Continues Steady Growth, Adds Jobs

Pilgrim Software, an international company headquartered in Tampa, is enjoying continued growth, despite the challenging economy.

"Our infrastructure continues to grow," explains Prashanth Rajendran, Pilgrim's COO. "Although we have expanded in Europe and Asia, the company itself has focused on Tampa as the hub. We plan to expand our operations here Tampa in the next year or so."

The company's growth is due to its global partner strategy and its software-as-a-service product.

"As we continue to bring in partners to resell our products, we're going to need more staff to accommodate that growth," says Rajendran. "It's the same thing with software-as-a-service. We take the IT burden away for the customer, but we need the staff to handle it."

Partners include Microsoft Certified Partner Program, Cincom Systems, PSC Group, HCL Technologies and CDC Software. SaaS, a relatively new service on the IT landscape, provides on-demand software online as opposed to the traditional model that requires software be loaded onto a hard drive.

Led by President and CEO Ami Utji, the original Pilgrim Software team came together largely due to their shared alma mater, the University of South Florida.

"The people who started the company had a common ideology," says Rajendran. The company's vision statement is "to be the world's most innovative and trusted provider of compliance and quality management solutions for regulated industries."

Pilgrim specializes in providing software solutions to businesses that serve life sciences as well as manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace and other related industries.
