About the Company: Mercator uses AI to mine and analyze millions of data points across the construction process to identify indicators that signal early project development.

This enables customers to access early project opportunities, who’s involved, and historical trends. Mercator is used by Architecture, Engineering, Construction, Real Estate, and Manufacturing companies to inform strategic and tactical decision-making.
