Introduced at World of Concrete 2010, ProContractorMX gives concrete and masonry construction companies end-to-end control of all critical business operations. Using this solution, contractors can improve productivity, reduce costs, monitor and control cash flow, and confidently increase profitability on every project.

"Providing the construction industry with a complete end-to-end solution helps us deliver on our passion of technology innovation and meeting the needs of our customers. It is imperative in business today to have control and visibility of true profitability; and so we provide ProContractorMX as an all-in-one solution that enables contractors to increase productivity, reduce costs, improve control and decision-making, and boost profitability throughout their business," said Jim Flynn, President & CEO of Maxwell Systems.

"It was so time consuming and frustrating to use multiple programs to obtain even the smallest bits of information," said Noel Ferrell, owner, Ferrell Concrete, LLC. "Now using Maxwell Systems ProContractorMX as our complete business management solution, we will save money in office time, be much more effective, have greater insight into our business to increase profitability, and be able to focus more on our core business. The ways we can use ProContractorMX to help improve our processes and productivity are limitless."

Flynn added, "Contractors no longer need to struggle using disparate software products that present operational obstacles and inefficiencies. ProContractorMX makes real-time information easily available throughout the business. So the owner, the estimators, the project managers, the equipment manager, the controller and accounting team, and all the players in between can work with the same solution, a complete seamless system. This improves communication and accountability, as well as allows the company to improve productivity and reach true project profitability."

Maxwell Systems ProContractorMX was built from the ground up on Microsoft's latest technology -- Microsoft .NET platform and SQL Server 2008 -- setting a new standard in construction business management software.
