MERCURY WAS FOUNDED
IN AUGUST OF 1999
Our first project was for the original US Robotics Palm Pilot
In addition to Palm, we also developed for Windows (and still do).
99
Although gaining in popularity, we knew Palm OS development could not support the rate of growth we envisioned for our company. Looking for a niche, Windows wasn’t ideal as development shops had been programming on that platform for a lot longer than us.

OS X released
OS X was not an incremental upgrade but a completely new OS. We invested in learning to program for this new operation system, immediately, and benefited from companies looking for new versions of their existing OS9 apps.
In addition, we were one of a few development shops offering both Mac OS X and Windows skill sets. Many new customers, wanted cross platform development but did not want to manage multiple outsourced relationships.
New areas
of specialization
Built-in
software
Audio
processing
Our Mac OS X competence brought us more multimedia projects. We were contracted to develop an audio processing app for a custom voice compression codec. We later optimized this codec for various DSP platforms and the Microsoft Pocket PC (later developed into Windows Mobile and Windows Phone).
Our DSP experience lead us to
a customer looking to
creating plugins for the Pro Tools
professional audio processing
system.

CROSS-PLATFORM
APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

Continuing with multimedia, DSP development and multimedia, 2005 brought us more development work to support custom hardware. Our customer (ultimately Barco, a large, Belgian lighting solutions company) needed an application to convert videos to display on custom arrays of LED panels.
DATA STORAGE NETWORK SOLUTIONS FOR PROFESSIONAL AUDIO AND VIDEO STUDIOS.
iOS RELEASED
iOS COMBINED OUR 8 YEAR LOVE OF MOBILE, AND OUR 6+ YEARS OF DEVELOPING FOR MAC OS X, ON WHICH iOS IS BUILT ON.
WE JUMPED ON iOS IMMEDIATELY AND HAVEN'T STOPPED SINCE. KEEPING IN MIND THE LESSONS WE LEARNED FROM OUR MAC AND WINDOWS EXPERIENCE.
WE KNEW THERE WOULD BE ONLY MORE THAN DOMINENT PLAYER IN THE MOBILE MARKET. (AND WE KNEW THE OTHER WOULD NOT BE BLACKBERRY). AS SOON AS IT BECAME VIABLE (ONCE THEY SOLVED THE DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE FOR MULTIPLE DEVICE MODELS) WE WE INVESTED IN ANDROID DEVELOPMENT AND HAVE SINCE PORTED MANY OF OUR iOS APPLICATIONS ON ANDROID.
We started working on plugins for Apple TV and also gained proficiency in cloud technologies: high load web servers, virtualization, social networks.
WE OPENED THE
 MERCURY ACADEMY
DEVELOPING FOR CONNECTED HARDWARE AND WEARABLES (KEYPADS, SMART KEY FOBS, FITNESS TRACKERS, ETC.), WORKING WITH BLE TECHNOLOGY.
IN 2013–2014 WE STARTED WORKING ON SEVERAL FULL STACK DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.
MiMedia – personal media cloud storage with background synchronization of media content;
Ecwid – POS and Order Management System with PayPal payments, PayPal Here Credit Card reader and iZettle card reader support.
