Fast, Reliable, and Easy-to-Use
Distributed Database Solutions
For Your Unique and Complex Needs
PCA provides custom Internet database application consulting and design-build engineering services on the Microsoft Smart Client business platform.  We specialize in custom Smart Client solutions built on the SQL Server database, .NET framework, SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Analysis Services (SSAS). Founded in 1992, PCA is a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner — and recognized for its ability to translate unique and oftentimes complex business-to-business operational needs into fast, reliable and easy-to-use distributed database solutions.

Custom Smart Client Solutions

Smart Client applications 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.

Our Clients

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 privileged-based information among employees, partners and customers over the Internet.

Outgrown Excel or MS Access?

PCA is frequently engaged by companies that have developed highly-customized Excel and MS Access applications — have outgrown the capabilities these tools can provide — and need business process experts and SQL Server database and application design experts who can translate unique operational needs into a high-quality, distributed database solution.  Learn more about PCA migration services.

Prototype Design Methodology

Application Prototypes are the centerpiece to PCA's standard design-build process.  Prototypes provide PCA and our Clients with a simple, visual means to communicate and confirm application requirements.  The outcome of the Prototype Design Phase is confidence that we are on the right track, a properly scoped project with reliable estimates, and a Client-approved design and source-code to drive the Development Phase.

Go with the Trusted Experts

Are the capabilities necessary to run and grow your business efficiently in poor working order?  Do you have a high-stakes project, tired of paying IBM and Accenture rates, but still demand the highest quality?  Does a smaller vendor with the same skills, but more accountable and responsive to your needs sound appealing?  These are some of the good reasons that bring new business to PCA.   We tackle our Clients' toughest challenges with some of the most talented and experienced database application engineers in the Boston area — with critical thinking, a keep-it-simple philosophy and proven design-build approach.
