Maxwell Systems Honored as Technology Partner for E.R. Lewis Construction, Winner of Constructech Vision Award 2013

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2013) - Maxwell Systems, Inc., a leading provider of construction software solutions, expert services, and best practices, was recognized at the Vision Awards ceremony at Constructech Technology Day 2013 on October 4 in Santa Clara, Ca. E.R. Lewis Construction Co., Inc. won the Gold Award for Specialty Contractor: Site/Utility and Maxwell Systems was honored as its Technology Partner for this achievement.

The contractor received this award based on the decision to change its technology approach from multiple disparate systems to a single end-to-end solution. The result was a savings in about $60,000 a year just on payroll. Even more, employees have a tool to generate field reports, keeping everyone up-to-date on a project's status. According to the company's president, Charles Lewis: "We partnered with Maxwell Systems and invested in ProContractorMX, an all-in-one solution that, for us, takes eight different programs and lots of paper and combines it into one system -- bringing the field and office together for seamless communications. By moving to a complete solution, we are not just changing our software, but changing the way the company operates." 

"This year's competition brought forth companies that have shown great devotion to pushing their companies forward using modern technology," says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. "That is exactly what is so great about the Vision Awards. It brings to light the companies that have implemented innovation and have obtained notable success in the industry."

Bob Hodges, vice president-strategic projects at Maxwell Systems, joined Charles Lewis and Dillon Godley, senior contracts officer, at E.R. Lewis Construction at the awards ceremony. Hodges expressed: "We admire E.R. Lewis Construction for this achievement; the company's commitment to employ best technology and processes has brought them better management practices, profitability, and quality of work. They are an excellent example of the type of construction company we are so proud to partner with."

"This marked the 14th year of celebrating the annual Vision Awards and once again we were able to recognize the very best companies using technology in construction," says Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech. "This year's winners are prime examples of the impact of new and unique technology, as well as the possibilities these new innovations can create for the future."
