To be the authoritative voice and champion for grocery retailers who want to strengthen their relationship with shoppers in a digital space.
Mercatus empowers grocers to create exceptional shopping experiences for their customers. We bring together existing systems, best-in-breed marketing technologies and a host of grocery-specific shopper tools across multiple digital channels to deliver engagements that increase share of basket and foster lifelong loyalty.
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.
President and CEO, 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.
Big step forward
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 empowering grocery retailers. Today, we hold more than 150 patents registered in over 20 countries. We continue to build on our heritage of innovation to deliver eCommerce solutions that provide our grocery clients with greater control, at less cost, and above all, lets them retain connection with their customers and communities.
