Origin of New Name is Greek for “Better”
Rebranding Underscores Company Commitment to Build Leading Technology for Governments So They Can Better Serve Citizens and Build Smart Communities
AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Calytera–Government technology leader CSDC is now Calytera. The company’s new brand, announced today, better represents the advanced technology it provides governments to help them efficiently and effectively manage citizen services and build smart communities.
“Kalytera” in Greek means “better.” Ancient Greece was the cradle of our modern democracies and city and community organization. Calytera enables customers to provide better government services to citizens and communities and helps move governments into the future. The company spells its new name with a “C” to illustrate the importance of communities, citizens, connections and collaboration.
“Citizens expect interactions with government to be just as easy and seamless as those they have with retail, service, finance, and social organizations, and governments need to be as efficient as possible in managing citizen services. To better help governments meet those high expectations, we have improved every part of our company and products. Our new brand much better represents the company we now are. We’re thrilled to introduce Calytera today,” said Erin Mulligan Nelson, Calytera CEO.
Highlights of recent Calytera developments leading to the rebranding include:
- An expansion of the company’s partner network to ensure that more governments can take advantage of Calytera’s leading software.
- Adoption of agile working methodologies to increase the velocity of new releases with improved quality. In the past year, Calytera has provided customers 28 releases containing more than 150 enhancements to the Amanda platform.
- An introduction of an industry-leading Amanda Freedom of Information Solution to help governments, which receive an ever-increasing number of FOI requests, to efficiently respond to them while staying in compliance and protecting the security and privacy of sensitive information.
“There’s a popular phrase ‘it’s good enough for government work,’ implying that government processes, employees or stakeholders deserve ‘good enough’ – good enough software, good enough outcomes, good enough partnerships. We think this notion couldn’t be further from the truth. What we’ve found in our decades of working with governments is that our customers are some of the hardest-working and most committed there are, providing critical needs to tax-paying citizens so that their jurisdictions can function and flourish. They don’t deserve good; they deserve better than good. They deserve great,” continued Nelson.

Calytera is a Government Technology GovTech100 company and in 2018 was named to CIO Review’s Top 20 Most Promising Public Sector Solution Providers.
