Founded in 1992, PCA is a nationally-recognized
database consulting and engineering firm that provides custom database design
services on the
business platform — SQL Server, .NET, SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL
Server Analysis Services (SSAS).
We distinguish our practice in many important ways — senior engineering professionals (we employ zero junior or
outsourced personnel), high levels of Client interaction that involve critical thinking and careful planning,
deep industry expertise across a number of common business domains, and a mature, efficient development environment and
project methdology to ensure high quality results at a reasonable price. We tackle our Clients most important challenges, and are recognized for our ability to translate unique and oftentimes complex line-of-business needs into
fast, reliable and easy-to-use custom Internet database solutions.
Custom SQL Server and .NET Application Development
Our custom SQL Server and .NET solutions look and perform just like Microsoft Office
desktop applications — but run over the Internet, and enable real-time, secure SQL
Server database sharing. .NET Database Applications architected around the "Smart Client" model are ideally suited
for business-to-business data management needs, where streamlined workflows,
ease of use, and tight integration with MS Office applications like Outlook,
Word and Excel are critical to business performance, flexibility and efficiency.
Sample Smart Client
The PCA Client base is exceptionally diverse, spanning a
broad range of industries and custom applications
. Our clients are distinguished by their unique and oftentimes complex industry and line-of-business needs — where
quality, cost-controls and profitability rely heavily on the ability to share and manage large amounts of
continuously updated information efficiently, among employees, partners and customers over the Internet.
Outgrown Excel or MS Access?
PCA is frequently engaged by companies that have developed highly-customized,
applications — have outgrown the capabilities that Access and Excel can provide — and need business process experts and
database and application developers who can preserve these investments, and scale the
system to a high-quality, distributed database
solution. More on PCA database conversion services.
Agile Prototype Design Methodology
Application Prototypes are the centerpiece to PCA's
standard design-build process
Prototypes provide PCA developers and our Clients with a simple, visual means to communicate and verify
application requirements. The outcome of the Prototype Design Phase
in an optimal solution, and reliable resource, budget and schedule estimates to drive the software development phase.
