On Demand CTO Services

At mercanix, we select and implement, or design and build, technology solutions which help organization's and their people operate at the highest levels of effectiveness. 

By acting as your Chief Technology Officer (CTO) as needed, we can help you avoid wasteful expenditures, and improve operations with technology that drives business results.

We are typically engaged by mid-sized firms and businesses that have plenty of technology but nobody at the leadership level who is overseeing, rationalizing and coordinating technology purchases.


“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.”

R. Buckminster Fuller
