What We Do Best

Our Story

Mercatus began in 2004 as a privately funded group of passionate innovators who identified a gap in the grocery retail technology market. Focusing on both hardware and software, we commercialized an intuitive, small-screen computer for grocery carts. It offered shoppers coupons, recipe ideas, loyalty rewards and more, all served up at their fingertips in-store. We’ve come a long way since then.

Sylvain Perrier saw a bigger opportunity in our proprietary software. His vision was to help retailers manage inventory, increase customer retention and improve margins. It was a compelling and expansive vision that earned us globally-recognized clients and industry accolades.

Recognizing that mobile technology would lead to even greater opportunities in online grocery retail to deliver exceptional customer experiences, we focused on the web-based platform technology we deliver today.

Throughout the years, we’ve stayed true to our vision of delivering a better customer experience. Today, we hold more than 150 patents registered in over 20 countries. We continue to build on our heritage of innovation to deliver solutions that make leading grocers more adaptive, attentive and profitable.
