PLA serves a wide variety of organizations from virtually all industry sectors. The majority of our clients have 10-250 employees and most rely heavily on computers for their daily operations. Our broad industry focus gives us exposure to diverse range of IT environments and allows us to apply lessons learned from one client to all clients.
Our smaller clients tend to have smaller budgets, but they still need reliable IT systems that empower their employees to work as efficiently as possible. Our roots are in serving small offices, so we have the experience to make recommendations appropriate for smaller offices. We aren't afraid to recommend a mixture of cloud-based services alongside traditional client-server applications.
Our larger clients need dedicated resources to meet their complicated IT needs. We take the time to learn your business so we can truly function with the same inside knowledge as an internal IT department. For clients that have an internal IT staff, we work closely with the existing staff to augment their capabilities. We provide 24x7 monitoring, Tier-2 support, and as-needed assistance with important IT projects . Our monitoring infrastructure and "best practice" approach make us a valuable member of the IT department.
We work with dozens of non-profit organizations so we know how they differ from our for-profit clients. Non-profits are driven to reduce overheard and put as much of their budget towards programming as possible. We work with organizations like TechSoup to acquire software at a deep discount, and we take advantage of open source software wherever possible to keep costs down. We also offer a 15% discount on our services for non-profits because we believe in what they do and we enjoy partnering with them!
Manufacturing / Distribution
Most manufacturers and distributors have only recently stabilized the enterprise resource planning systems that took them years to implement. Unfortunately, the built-in analytical and reporting capabilities of these systems often do not satisfy the information needs of an increasingly savvy user community. In addition, most manufacturers still have non-ERP applications in place that are responsible for core elements of their operation. Consolidating data from these systems, streamlining business processes and making the information accessible to employees, customers and key vendors is critical to our clients overall success. We can help you get a holistic view of your data and get the most out of your ERP investments.

Most insurance companies and large independent agents have custom-developed or packaged software applications that collect and process premium, claim, expense, and agent/producer information. Increased competition has driven some firms to analyze this data for important trends, build customer and group pricing history, and even automatically process customer renewals. Customers and agents are also demanding better access to detailed information through non-traditional channels, such as the web and Integrated Voice Response (IVR). Project Leadership uses its insurance industry knowledge to help clients quickly build or enhance their existing business intelligence capability. Tapping into the right data is likely to be the key to long-term success in this sector.
Medical / Healthcare
PLA works with numerous hospitals, healthcare providers, medical device makers, biotechnology firms, and other companies in the medical/healthcare industry so we understand the various regulatory and privacy issues that accompany this space.
