About Us

The Computer Merchant Ltd. (TCM) is a veteran-owned, national provider of technology staffing services and workforce solutions that meet the unique needs and demanding expectations of Fortune 1000, SMB commercial and public sector clients across the U.S.  Over the last five years, we’ve successfully deployed over 12,500 consultants on long term, mission critical assignments at a long list of prestigious and demanding companies, including 12 of the Fortune 100, 34 of the Fortune 500 and over 150 industry-leading large and SMB clients.

For 35 years, we’ve helped our clients ensure the success of their internal IT initiatives and external billable client-facing projects by deploying functional and technical IT consultants across 48 states that get the job done on-time and on-budget.  These companies turn to TCM as a trusted delivery partner to strengthen their ability to speed time-to-market; fill critical skills gaps; reduce operating costs and meet variable resource demands to achieve their key business and technology goals.

TCM provides clients with a flexible consultant delivery model that includes contract-based, contract-to-hire and direct hire (FTE) and backs every resource with an unconditional 80-hour performance guarantee.  We pioneered the industry’s first and best centralized recruiting and national delivery engine in 1980 and have scaled and perfected it over 35 years to our give clients a superior level of quality, speed and price-performance across 48 states. 

We build long-term, results-driven relationships fueled by our core values of full accountability, results and a deep commitment to client satisfaction.  As a privately-held company, we are driven by what is in the long-term best interest of our clients, not the quarterly best interests of shareholders.  Founded in 1980, TCM is headquartered in Norwell, MA. We are also a proud member of the National Veteran-Owned Business Association, NAVOBA.
