I’m excited to announce that on April 2, 2019, Rock Solid Technologies, a public sector-focused software company, is merging with CitySourced. With any change, there are bound to be questions about what happens next. Hopefully, this FAQ answers those questions and eliminates any uncertainty you may have.

Why is Rock Solid acquiring CitySourced?
As we continued to develop our mobile app platform to help local governments deliver more services to citizens, we’ve seen an increased need for a back-office tool to manage and track interactions. Rock Solid's existing RESPOND CRM software, helps local governments manage its interactions with citizens, is built on top of Microsoft's Dynamics CRM platform, and currently serves more than 7 million residents throughout Latin America, United States, and Canada.
The combined company now serves more than 18 million citizens across some 150 individual governments throughout North America. The CitySourced 311 app will be integrated into Rock Solid’s existing RESPOND civic engagement platform to provide a comprehensive solution to serve the needs to city, state and local governments.
At the end of 2018, Rock Solid received a growth investment from Strattam Capital, which partners with companies with great products and helps them reach broader markets.
