Initially founded almost 25 years ago by entrepreneur Gregory Scanlan as specialists in the computer sector, PC-DEAL expanded to become a leading systems integrator, volume manufacturer and distributor to the retail, education and corporate markets. The focus at that time was large memberships, loyalty organisations and institutions. Special skills were developed within the organisation providing the expertise and foundation needed to maintain a national supply and service network with the capability of deploying large-scale IT procurement and service projects nationally. Regional warehousing and contract maintenance logistics followed, enabling the organisation to effectively service the majority of Australia’s population, even in the most remote areas, with a focus on IT technology solutions.
An opportunity arose to provide a major multi-national Insurer with some limited claims procurement support within Queensland. The strengths of PC-DEAL were immediately realised by this client and PCD LOGISTICS was formed to service this business and consolidate the capabilities formed within PC-DEAL on a national scale. PCD LOGISTICS harnessed the skills and assets acquired through the evolution of our IT business, and the scope of PCD LOGISTICS’ capabilities expanded to service all electrical within home and business environments, for both fixed and portable items. This inevitably led to more opportunities and partnerships with most of the major and boutique insurers, loss adjusters and brokers, looking for a reliable alternative to major retailers, who offer limited capabilities in the Insurance solutions arena.
