Mercury Grove

Mercury Grove

We believe in providing a better technology experience through great software and exceptional support.

Mercury Grove develops software and provides professional consulting for medium and large businesses in the US and Canada. We currently have offices in Lexington, Kentucky, and Ottawa, Canada and a distributed team across North America and Asia.

We opened our doors in 2005 as a small consulting company focused on improving the software experience in large corporations through improved design, faster implementation, and a strong emphasis on goal attainment (rather than risk avoidance).

Our focus shifted to product-development following several successful proprietary software implementations including the creation of our team collaboration software - Web Groups. Since its creation dozens of companies have changed the way they work using the Web Groups software.

Mercury Grove is very involved in our local communities with active participation in BarCamps, DemoCamps, and other social technology events.

Although Mercury Grove is privately owned and funded, we are always looking for the right partners to help us grow.
