Founded in 1992, PCA is a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner located in Boston that provides custom database design-build
engineering services on the
Microsoft Smart Client
business platform — SQL Server, .NET, SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server
Analysis Services (SSAS). We are recognized for our ability to translate unique and oftentimes complex line-of-business needs into
fast, reliable and easy-to-use Internet database solutions.
Custom Smart Client Solutions
Smart Clients look and perform just like Microsoft Office
applications — but they run over the Internet, and enable real-time, secure SQL
Server database sharing. Smart Client database applications are ideally suited
for business-to-business data management needs, where streamlined workflows,
ease of use, and tight integration with MS Office are critical to business performance 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
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 these tools can provide — and need business process experts and
database and application design engineers who can translate unique operational needs into a high-quality, distributed database
solution. More on PCA

Agile Prototype Design Methodology
Application Prototypes are the center piece to PCA's
standard design-build process

application requirements. The outcome of the Prototype Design Phase
in an optimal solution + reliable engineering resource, budget and schedule estimates + source-code to drive the Development Phase.
