Actually it does have those facilities to do such an architecture.
Its callled psql.  Postgresql's verison of sql. just write sql
statements to update, delete or add records accordingly. You can do
this using a web interface, another client db like access or paradox.
There are tons of ways to do it.  you can use an odbc interface.  So
postgress does come with everything you need.
