PCS has 40 years of service to the publishing industry and is once again instigating a fundamental change to the nature of publishing.
Publishing is in PCS’s DNA and publishing software development is literally its reason for being. That’s why it has not only reflected, but often led, major technological advances over four momentous decades.
That durability reflects huge experience and, combined with an ability to innovate, has made this one of the most exciting periods in the company’s history.
PCS grew out of the IT arm of one of the UK’s longest established family-owned independent media companies – the Claverley Group – owners of Britain’s biggest-selling daily evening title, the Wolverhampton-based Express & Star.
Forty years ago, PCS developed one of the UK’s first fully computerised publishing systems – Press 11 – a forerunner of the digital systems used by publishers all over the world today.
The system established PCS’s credentials as developers and integrators within Britain’s national and regional news industry at a time of revolutionary change in workflows and production methods.
And that experience has led the company to where it is today – still innovating and reaffirming its role as a thought leader within the industry by fundamentally changing the nature of publishing again with its flagship digital content management and publishing system, called Knowledge.
Development-led, PCS has taken advantage of new technologies to help envision more efficient publishing workflows and better methods of delivery, driving the move to ‘always-on’, independent remote working in the cloud and responding to the increasing desire of technology consumers to purchase software as a service.
The company boasts a suite of products adaptable to a range of global markets and platforms in print and digital.
