PCS sees the acacias that line our road –
the Pfaelzer-Wald-Strasse in Munich –
break into leaf and blossom year after year.
Although these trees have not grown skyhigh,
they have a stable and healthy basis –
just like PCS.
But we weren’t born yesterday.
Established in 1970 as PCS –
Periphere Computer Systeme GmbH:
process control computer and laboratory
data systems on the product side
coupled with high-caliber engineering
for our industrial customers. In the
1980s, we specialized in efficient Unixbased
computers for the industry,
research and teaching as well as in organizational
information systems: time
management and data collection. In the
1990s, we recognized the growing
importance of human resources and concentrated
on high-class series products
with our “INTUS Terminalsysteme”
branding. National and international
design prizes followed. We also obtained
the first certification for our SAP HR
interface in this period. Our range was
successfully supplemented by access
control in synergy with RFID, biometry,
and, more recently, video surveillance for
our further focus on security technology.
Always in step with state-of-the-art time
management. A successful duet. Even
though a triplet of terms forms the basis
of our corporate mission: innovation,
design and quality.
Our own ideas. That make sense.
Successful series products are created
from initial ideas. Innovation is a
multistage creative intelligent process:
technical ideas – feasibility analysis –
synthesis. Integrating our own experience
and the experience of our
environment. Exploiting new opportunities.
And powerful new components
available in the global market.
Most important in all this are our
customers’ ideas and our solution
partners’ ideas. Creative listening is a
part of the process. Chance only finds
a ready mind. PCS innovations are close
to the market and user-friendly.
Therefore they meet with high acceptance
among users. Not least because
everything is our own idea – and makes
sense. We know our products like the
back of our hand.
Life is hard enough:
Fun in designing.
Design and innovation are a perfect
couple. During the creative process of
developing new products, design acts
like a mentor. The design and the
innovation process spur each other on.
International products often have a
similar functionality. But the design of
PCS products makes them unmistakable.
A unique product with a unique appearance.
Yet design means so much more:
considering the design of a new product
in great depth enhances its quality,
its functionality and its ergonomics.
Our products have a subtle effect but
no reason to hide. And their value is
high, combining satisfaction on the part
of the investor perfectly with high
acceptance among users. A beautiful
couple: exemplary design that has
won numerous awards, and creative
technology for lots of users, who
always come and go, while the INTUS
Planned quality. Planned success.
PCS creates planned quality. Nothing is left
to chance in the product process. Materials
and components are selected very professionally.
Suppliers undergo careful examination.
Ecological improvements are especially
important for us. 25 years of very successful
products in our core business bear witness
to this fact. But ingredients are not all of the
story. The course is already set for successful
products in the product planning phase.
A clear benefit for the user versus a risk in
the electronic design. Tried and tested technologies
versus slogans. Inexpensive service
in favour of miniaturization with advertising
appeal. PCS manufactures its products based
on ISO 9001. Our Development department
has close contacts with TÜV Bayern and with
independent testing laboratories. Our products
are compliant with VDE and European
regulations, and will also be UL-approved in
future. It is plain for all to see during the
hard computer-controlled final test carried
out on all products: Quality is good. Quality
assurance is better. Made in Germany.
Made in Germany
Customers. Partners. PCS.
A long-term relationship.
Most of our business is carried out via
some 100 resellers, including national
and international software and computer
retailers from all areas of time
and personnel management, product
data acquisition and security technology
that integrate INTUS hardware
into their software solutions. The result
is a broad array of sophisticated
applications for all company sizes and
all sectors, concepts that have benefits
and a future. In the field of security
technology, we partner with installation
and planning companies. We share
the path with others and are delighted
about our joint success in the market.
Many of these partnerships have
existed for more than two decades.
We also serve SAP customers directly.
With the same quality and with the
same commitment. In both areas, in
direct and indirect business, PCS is
considered a calculable and reliable
business partner. Our willingness to
serve our customers is an important
enabler of this success.
PCS. The terminal people.
Our protected slogan “The terminal
people” reflects the customer-oriented
and service-based way all our employees
think and act. True specialists
are at work in all areas of PCS, from
Sales and Marketing, Development
and Production through to Service.
With a very high level of expertise and
know-how. With great dedication
and at eye level. Our employees are
performance-oriented and participate
in our common success. They ensure
reliability and consistency with very
little fluctuation. Our customers can
count on their contact being there for
them years later. We have ourselves
measured by independent opinion pollsters.
We measure ourselves by your
always returning to us.
PCS is well set for the future. With excellent
products and new trend-setting
implementations. Human resources and
logistics have shown themselves to be
a strong economic factor in the Europe
of the 21st century. Time management
and security technology are flanking
measures with growth potential.
Applications converge, grow together
and thus become stronger and more
effective. PCS influences this trend with
innovative strategies for products,
marketing and market impact. Always
for the benefit of progress in time
management and security technology.
Hence, we have a good and competent
word to say in our sector. Our vision
It continues behind the horizon.
The bottom line: PCS.
A committed mid-sized firm with an
excellent price-satisfaction ratio.
