About Us

Our Beginnings
In 1978, computer executive Gary Pittman noticed that something was missing from the computer industry: up-to-date technological news. Armed with client and vendor experience, Pittman knew what type of information computer consumers were looking for, and he set out to create a publications company that would produce a high-quality computer resource guide for Burroughs computer users. The result was what would become a wildly popular computer-centered magazine. (The publication was originally entitled Burroughs World and was later changed to UNISYS World). At that time, IBM was the big fish in the world of computers, and 90 percent of Burroughs World focused on IBM-related topics. Soon, however, Pittman was getting calls from non-IBM consumers who wanted a more customized publication for their particular type of system. Rather than produce just one additional publication to satisfy the masses, Pittman created 15. Shipped to 150 countries around the world, the publications had a loyal—and diverse—following in the computer industry.

Our Future
In the 1990s, Pittman says he “began to see the writing on the wall”; PCs were introduced, the market began to favor Intel-based Microsoft operating systems, and only one computer magazine was necessary to sustain his publication's original market. This turn in computer history didn't devastate PCI, however; instead, it gave the company a new outlet for success.

In 1995, Pittman found another untapped niche in the shelter industry and started three new publications: Austin Home & Living, Concrete Homes, and Concrete Monthly. The emphasis on shelter led to opportunities with related businesses.

Today, PCI brings both publishing and web expertise to industries such as the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the Network of Hospitality (NEWH) that want to create a strong visual image through web technology.

“They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that's absolutely true to any company where image is everything,” Pittman says. “We've survived the past 30 years because we're innovative. There's never a shortage of ideas here.”

Web Development

Web Development
PCI specializes in online publications for businesses and organizations that want to create a presence in the World Wide Web. From planning to production, our web team makes it simple for your business to publish its content online. We have graphic designers and web developers on staff who are experienced in moving projects from development to implementation and use technologies that help control the overall cost and timeline of your project. With PCI's hosting and e-mail services, you will find one-stop solutions for all of your web development needs.

Our Technology
Many projects we implement for our customers use backend database and content management features. This means an administrator within your organization—regardless of their web development or programming knowledge—can easily update and manage all of your site's content without any intervention from us. Unlike other developers who charge for site updates, we'll help your organization control the overall cost of your site by charging you nothing past the site development stage.
