As the company was at its most exciting phase, the system development and consultancy divisions were incorporated individually to enhance focus and stimulate growth.

2009 PCG earns a Gazelle

2004 First client
- After receiving the first assignments from local biotech companies, the PCG team quickly realised that present EDC systems were outdated, resulting in time-consuming processes that shouldn't be necessary with 21st century technology. There simply wasn't a good enough solution on the market, so they decided to design their own, and Viedoc was born. Shortly thereafter, Claude Marcus became the first client to ever try the system. He's been with the firm since.
2003 PCG was founded
- It all started with Henrik Blombergsson and Sverre Bengtsson, two experienced CRO professionals that grew tired of the outdated workflows of their industry. They took matters in their own hands by founding PCG, or Pharma Consulting Group, in their hometown of Uppsala, Sweden in 2003.
