Our Clients Say It Best:

PCG’s ability to understand our manufacturing landscape was instrumental with our recent upgrade to Job Boss. Our equipment was aging, becoming non-reliable, out of compliance and cash flow was critical to our decision. PCG helped us analyze the costs associated with going to the Cloud and staying On-premise. They worked with all of our software vendors and came up with roadmap and budget for each solution. The Cloud solution would have cost us $170,000 over four years to implement. After taking a good look at the application, PCG promptly came up with a creative way to design their equipment as a Hardware-as-a-service and installed the whole solution for just $44,000 on-premise. That was four times savings. Since the upgrade, we have been “rocking and rolling for the last two years with the solution PCG provided. We have been engaged with PCG now for the past 3 years and they have always been there for us. Their ability to manage and monitor all of our systems, provide exceptional help desk, and be onsite when needed is priceless. Compliance and Security are huge to our manufacturing process, vendors and clients. PCG is working with us know to improve our Security posture and make sure we are NIST Compliant. Thanks PCG.
