Why use Mercury?


See full answer here If you are a freelancer or firm Clients struggle to write clear specs and there is no easy way for them to keep on the same page as you and your firm or consultancy. On top of this, clients have a habit of changing specs and the high costs in terms of man hours can shock many. Mercury offers an easy to understand, battle-tested, dashboard that separates technical conversation from the client-facing communication. This helps cut down on overload for clients and the agile-inspired development cycle makes it more intuitive and easier to follow than any other option available.
