Smart Client Development

Smart Clients combine the advantages of centralized database control with the power and flexibility of desktop computing.  (What is a smart client?)  The advantages are significant:

  • Enterprises can manage database security and make sure that all users have the same up-to-date copy of the information wherever they may be located.
  • Individuals can process, sort, and filter information using the processor on their PC without waiting for a centralized web server using a familiar MS Office-style interface.

Practical Computer Applications (PCA) is one of the world’s leading authorities on developing Microsoft Smart Client applications.  We are expert at translating unique business needs into well-structured database information models with simple-to-use application interfaces and workflows.  PCA will work with you to determine the best, most cost-effective approach to meeting your business needs.
