One Revolutionary Idea and Two Talented Friends
The PCFS Solutions story begins in 1983, when PC Financial Systems, (as the company was first known) was formed by Robert Cota and Dennis McGuire. Robert Cota, a seasoned commercial banker, had been engaged in the SBA lending field since 1971. He is an expert in the loan servicing requirements, for which lenders are responsible, and he recognized that mainframe systems were unable to provide a comprehensive solution for lenders. Dennis McGuire, Robert’s long-time friend, had been programming and designing automated business systems since 1968. Mr. McGuire’s experience includes programming, developing software systems for the Air Force, as well as in his own entrepreneurial business. After joining forces, Robert launched a revolutionary concept and Dennis developed the software, and together, they create our first product, named the SBA Loan Manager.
Both Industry-Specific and Cross-Industry Experience
During the first few years of operation, while the new business was gaining its footing, the principals were also engaged in other business activities. In addition to PC Financial Systems, Robert Cota had offices in Orange, California where he devoted his efforts to SBA loan consulting, and Dennis McGuire’s offices were in Pomona, California where he serviced other business software clients.
From Humble Beginnings to a Successful Enterprise
By the latter part of 1994, PC Financial Systems and its products become so successful that the principals recognized that the firm needed closer coordination in customer and marketing support, product development, and administration of the business’s activities. Shortly thereafter, Kevin Danker joined the firm and brought with him many years of banking experience and a very strong loan operations background. In addition, he had also worked in the computer services industry, dealing almost exclusively with banking clients. Kevin’s well-rounded computer system and loan operations background are important factors in his immediate success in the SBA loan servicing software market.
Expansion of the Enterprise and Comprehensive Solutions
1998 was a pivotal year for PC Financial Systems and added a new level of sophistication. Other developments include building a more comprehensive line of products and services to offer to our clients including the development of loan origination systems, SBA Form.Wrx and Credit.Wrx, which address the lenders’ pre-funding needs. As the company expanded the lines of solutions that it offers our design included easy integration with one another by sharing one database. This enables them to operate as one complete system or as stand-alone application.
By 2013, PC Financial Systems becomes PCFS Solutions and launches Special Assets Manager (SAM) which addresses the specialized needs which must be addressed during the workout and liquidation phase of lending. These products and services showcase the continuation of our integrated, end-to-end business lending platform.
