After 10 years in the geospatial industry, Telcontar has decided to make the name change to deCarta to more effectively market the strengths of the company and highlight its positioning in the industry. It has recently expanded its international presence in Europe and Asia-Pacific and has had record growth in the past two years.
"Leveraging the Latin word 'carta' -- meaning map, and 'cartography' -- the science and art of making maps for navigation, our name change to deCarta more effectively aligns the company's corporate name with our business focus and core strengths," stated J. Kim Fennell, CEO of deCarta. "Our product strategy and business model remains unchanged, and we look forward to continuing our successful track record of delivering the most advanced geospatial platform solutions and services to our customers as deCarta. We are the same company with a new name," he said.
Through the next few months the company will unveil its new visual identity and Web site. During the transition period, customers, developers and interested parties will still be able to access the company website site through www.telcontar.com or www.decarta.com.
