BTS Software Solutions, a leading software development company that uses technology to create impactful solutions for the community, has been named as a finalist for SmartCEO Magazine’s Cornerstone Awards for Baltimore, Md.

The Cornerstone Awards program honors businesses headquartered in counties surrounding the Baltimore metropolitan region that are not only the economic drivers of their home counties but are also exemplary community stewards. Finalists include companies of all sizes and industries and are selected based on the positive impacts each has made on job creation and retention, market competition, and philanthropy.

Headquartered in Columbia, a small community in Howard County, Md, BTS Software Solutions is a group of community-focused innovators who transform ideas into technology that enriches people’s lives by helping them to communicate, connect with customers, and stay informed. The company recently consolidated five separate locations into its main office in Howard County to allow it to better serve its customers, improve the quality of life for its employees, and provide exceptional opportunities to give back to the community. BTS Software Solutions’ staff is comprised of active leaders in local church and community organizations, the State Foster Parent of the Year, members of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts groups, and a variety of other service organizations. Through its partnership with the Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA), the company was awarded a Catalyst Development Loan, part of the Howard County VLT program, to help grow its rapidly expanding customer base and create new jobs within the county.

“We are thrilled to be named as a finalist for SmartCEO Magazine’s Cornerstone Awards,” said David Tohn, CEO of BTS Software Solutions. “We believe it is our responsibility as a company to do our part to improve the quality of life for our employees, provide exceptional support to our customers, and contribute to the local businesses and organizations within Howard County. Our company roots are in helping save soldiers’ lives and to this day, we continue to extend that ethos to our tight-knit community.”
