The Pilgrim Way

What We Do

Pilgrim Consulting improves the way people do business by building great
software that automates business processes.

Identifying your challenge

Most organizations are not operating as efficiently as they could, allowing business challenges and troubled projects to keep them from achieving goals.

1

Do you need to simplify business operations by automating time-consuming business processes?

2

Are you unable to make the best business decisions due to a lack of access to information and analysis?

3

Could your organization benefit from accelerated workflow, cycle time and reporting?

Addressing your needs

Pilgrim Consulting gets you back on track by asking the right questions to fully understand your challenges and respond with the exact solution you need to operate more efficiently and focus on what you do best.

Addressing your needs

Pilgrim Consulting gets you back on track by asking the right questions to fully understand your challenges and respond with the exact solution you need to operate more efficiently and focus on what you do best.

We help businesses solve problems by asking “Why?”

Understanding the essential need that must be addressed allows Pilgrim Consulting to offer business process automation and software development that takes your business to where you want it to be.

Our Focus

Our main focus at Pilgrim is to understand your “Why” and intended end result for your project. By starting with your vision we can not only develop the end product you need, but also work with you on determining the best method, platform, and language.

Our Process

We use an Agile development methodology that keeps you involved during the entire project. By working with you to fine tune your vision and delivering working prototypes after each sprint, we are able to keep you up to date and involved with every step.

Best Practices

We understand the need to come in on budget and on time. Pilgrim Consulting’s flexible global team environment allows us to accommodate the perfect model for your project to help you achieve your ultimate goal.

Best Technologies

Technologies and platforms are constantly changing and moving. By staying up to date on all new technologies and then understand your business need we are able to suggest the best option that will be scalable and reliable for your project development.

Efficiency

By using an efficient proprietary project management system we are able to get to market with a completed solution faster than many companies. By using a best source model we connect you with the team that is designed for your project.

Accuracy

Our developers are senior level engineers that make sure the code we create is clean and well developed. Our QA and QC experts then ensure that the end product we deliver goes above and beyond the requirements you need.

Our Approach

Pilgrim Consulting focuses on relationships and providing dedicated teams for each project. This is done in an Agile environment by focusing on collaboration and invention while understanding your “why”. By doing this we are able to keep you involved during the entire development process.

Our Approach

The Difference

Agile Global Team + Disciplined Goal Setting = On-Track, On-Time, On-Budget

It All Starts With “Why”

Pilgrim’s project discovery approach focuses on your goals by first asking “Why”? By doing this, we have a greater understanding of our clients’ business needs and we can then tailor the solution to achieve the best possible outcome. Also, we understand the entrepreneurial point of view and the business implications of getting things right the first time. Being first to market is critical and can make or break an idea. We build software for our own businesses and know the best source formula for software development.

The Team

Pilgrim's unique approach to software development starts with exceptional talent. Our deep bench of battle-tested leaders and developers deliver top-shelf software at a cost, quality, and speed-to-market that both shocks and delights our clients.

The Purpose

“We’re not just filling tummies, We’re transforming lives.”

– Kenn Palm, Partner

Work that Matters

We work with organizations who provide training and support to teenagers in distressed areas on the subject of farming. They teach children how to grow food, supply it to market and to manage a farm effectively. They also provide farm equipment and even their own plot of land to help them get started in their new career creating food for themselves and others.

Creating a Future

Pilgrim Consulting partners with a number of organizations that focus on impacting the needs of distressed children and changing lives, not just by sustenance of food, but also by giving distressed children a future and independence by the building of schools for education and vocational training.

How We Support

  • 10% of all profits go to humanitarian causes
