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 our 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.
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
applications — have outgrown the capabilities these tools can provide — and need business process experts and
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
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.
