Catalis Continues to Invest in South Carolina with Acquisition of CSRA Tax Business

Catalis’ latest acquisition marks the company’s second acquisition in less than one month.

Alpharetta, GA, October 3, 2022 – Catalis, a leading government Software as a Service (SaaS) and integrated payments provider in the United States and Canada, is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. Less than one month after its last acquisition, Catalis has acquired the tax business of CSRA Computer Services, Inc. (CSRA), a South Carolina-based tax management software provider.

Catalis is a trusted technology partner for thousands of US and Canadian government entities. Its latest acquisition complements existing tax solutions in its portfolio – namely PCI and Patriot Properties (both Catalis companies) – and enables Catalis to better serve its customers with broader Tax and Computer Aided Mass Appraisal (CAMA) solutions. The company will now service four of the top 10 most populated counties in South Carolina, making it the largest provider of tax software in the state and impacting approximately two million constituents.

“This acquisition is exciting news for both existing Catalis and CSRA customers alike,” says John Kristel, CEO of Catalis. “CSRA is one of the most trusted tax platforms in South Carolina. This acquisition complements our existing Tax and CAMA solutions and strengthens our extensive subject matter expertise in that state.”

CSRA has been a mainstay in South Carolina’s real estate and personal property tax law/statutes area for more than 50 years and has a deep-rooted customer base in the state. Catalis’ acquisition of the tax business of the well-established brand highlights its continued investment and dedication to its customers in South Carolina. CSRA customers can expect to receive an enhanced level of service from Catalis. Additionally, the significant investment in the company’s products and technology will allow CSRA to move into the future with integrations with Catalis’ payment and Tax and CAMA solutions. These combined benefits lead to a great customer experience.

“Our partnership with Catalis provides both CSRA and its customers a strong offering for the future,” explains Ben Watson, president of CSRA. “Our combined expertise and dedication to service excellence will further strengthen our commitment to our customers in South Carolina. We look forward to continuing to expand our range of solutions.”

In 2021, growth equity firm PSG and leading global alternative asset firm TPG co-led a recapitalization that elevated Catalis’ valuation to more than $1 billion. Catalis’ recent acquisitions align with its ambitions for expansion as the premier software and digital payments provider for governments in the United States and Canada.

Earlier this year, as part of the company’s natural progression, Catalis announced a rebrand. This latest announcement solidifies the company’s continued commitment to develop new partnerships and broaden its service offerings while continuing to provide customer-centric service.
