Maxwell Systems Releases ProContractorMX Version 2.5 Construction Business Management Software

Latest Version Offers Capabilities for BIM, Document Management, Electronic Payroll/Tax Filing, and Mobile Electronic Job Folder

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwire - January 17, 2011) - Maxwell Systems, Inc., a leading provider of complete construction business management software solutions, today released Maxwell Systems™ ProContractorMX™ version 2.5, which offers valuable new capabilities for superior project execution. An all-in-one construction management solution, ProContractorMX provides end-to-end control from takeoff and estimating through job cost accounting and project management. The release of 2.5 offers more functionality to optimize project execution for maximum profitability.

"Contractors using ProContractorMX really appreciate how they no longer need to struggle using disparate software products that present operational obstacles," said Jim Flynn, President & CEO of Maxwell Systems. "The 2.5 version of solution includes new features, enhancements, and modules that allow convenient access to current project and financial information, whether in the office or in the field, so owners and project managers can be more agile and attentive. With end-to-end control and seamless workflow anytime, anywhere, construction business owners are equipped to execute projects more profitably."

The new capabilities in ProContractorMX 2.5 include:

  • ProContractorMX Connect -- allows access to up-to-date project information whether in the office or in the field. Using the latest mobile devices, project managers can easily and conveniently access all of their important documents and reports, which are usually kept in bulky, hard copy job folders, and thereby easily track progress of projects, be more agile in the field, and better account for all aspects of the job from beginning to end.

  • Document Management -- helps contractors create, track, organize, and manage the numerous documents associated with every project; build meaningful, online "paper" trails; and set alerts for critical due dates. This allows contractors to streamline workflow, maintain better accuracy, manage more efficiently, meet deadlines, and stay on schedule.

  • Payroll Electronic Filing -- contractors can utilize ProContractorMX for electronic tax filing for more seamless and convenient workflow. After processing payroll, the solution generates tax file information and can create e-files (or magnetic media) suitable for filing to state and federal agencies.

  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) -- allows contractors to skip the process of taking off blueprints or digital files by easily importing items from a Building Information Modeling or BIM file and populate an estimate with cost items and quantities.
