WASHINGTON, June 7, 2018Buchanan & Edwards Inc., a technology leader creating transformative solutions for government customers, has won a Bronze Stevie Award from The 2018 American Business Awards for its Marine Corps Recruiting Information Support System (MCRISS) Recruiter Client Tool (RCT).

Buchanan & Edwards began work in June 2016 with the U.S. Marine Corps to create this tool, which is a high-performance, on/off-line native Windows application giving Marine Corps recruiters around the nation the capability to perform their critical recruiting mission in disconnected environments such as schools, shopping malls, and other ad hoc recruiting venues.

“First, we are honored to be a partner with the United States Marine Corps for the totality of the MCRISS project. Recruiting is a top priority for the Marine Corps and Buchanan & Edwards recognizes the gravity of that mission and is honored to play a small role in supporting it,” said Dennis Kelly, president and CEO. “Developing the RCT solution gave us the opportunity to showcase our capabilities and to create an innovative solution to help Marine Corps recruiters enhance productivity and improve efficiency as they execute that challenging mission of finding the next generation of Marines.”
