We are proud to announce that effective today, Mercury New Media has transitioned to a new name – we are now MercuryWorks! There has been no change to ownership or structure (our “Bat-signal” icon is even still there!) – this update is a renewal of our 20 year heritage of custom software development.
Our pivot to MercuryWorks is intended to better reflect what we do and remove the vagueness of the turn-of-the-millennia “new media” moniker. We even have an updated company mission statement to match:
New MercuryWorks Website
Naturally we also have a new website – you can get an early look at mercuryworks.com – more content will be coming to the site by year-end.
We are also happy to announce that we have moved to new office space at:
2202 N. West Shore Blvd., Suite 200
Tampa, FL 33607
Our mail will forward for some time but please do make note of the new address for all of your correspondence.
