What are MERC’s Software Development Capabilities?
Custom software tools and systems help customers solve everyday problems. MERC has established close relationships with its customers to focus on their specific needs rather than the general needs of larger commercial markets.
MERC is able to leverage a broad experience base when forming its systems engineering and software development teams. Experts from other engineering disciplines participate on the development team to provide problem domain expertise when applicable.
Many solutions incorporate 3-D graphical applications, data mining, data visualization, or legacy system integration methods. Solutions are developed using Agile development methodologies and SEI certified CMMI Level 3 software engineering processes.
