  • Employee Testimonial

    “I have been working with Mercurius IT since 2015. It has been a great learning experience and I have strengthened my inherent skill sets.

    There is work-life balance and the directors, who are hands on, support you both personally and professionally. I feel proud to be a part of the company’s journey from a Silver to a Gold Microsoft ERP Partner.”

    – Kapil Kapoor, Director – Projects and Commercials

    Not only did Mercurius beat our existing partner’s quote by a significant margin, they did it at a fixed price - removing our commercial risk.

    In the end, they guided us carefully through the process and also implemented some great improvements to our business using the new features.
