Following the giant merger that saw the public-sector-serving software companies Superion, TriTech Software Systems and Aptean come together and become one entity, that entity has now chosen its new name: CentralSquare.

“A central square is a place where citizens interact with their government, whether it be at city hall, a police or fire station, or a hospital,” reads a press release from the new company. “‘To square’ reflects taking communities to the next level, and the four corners of a square refer to the four brands that are coming together to form CentralSquare Technologies.”

The merger involves four brands because Zuercher Technologies is a subsidiary of TriTech that has been operating under its own brand name since it was acquired in 2015.

The new company will, according to the press release, occupy the No. 1 market position — a metric involving customer count, revenue and citizens covered — in public safety software and the No. 2 position in public administration software.

There’s no disputing the new company is huge, as gov tech companies go. It has more than 7,500 public-sector customers spanning small, medium and large agencies across the U.S. and Canada. According to the statement, those government clients serve three of every four people living in the two countries.

Its software offerings are spread wide, from health care and law enforcement to the kinds of back-end administrative tools state and local governments use to manage their workflows.

The company’s CEO will be Simon Angove, who served as CEO of Superion prior to the merger. According to the statement, it will soon begin conducting webinars and roadshows to let customers know more about how it intends to work on its products.
