The release of 2.6 offers more functionality to help contractors improve productivity and profitability.

"We continue to innovate features for ProContractorMX so that construction companies really have the ultimate all-in-one solution for their business," said Jim Flynn, President & CEO of Maxwell Systems. "The latest capabilities are of great benefit to contractors doing structural construction, earthwork, or service, and many of the enhancements we deliver on are developed using the input and experiences we hear from our customers. This helps keeps the solution robust, flexible, and very user friendly for contractors of varying size and across the industry."

The notable capabilities and enhancements delivered in ProContractorMX 2.6 include:

 --  Earthwork Measurements - after importing digital CAD files,
     contractors can now import and select a contour line, and
     ProContractorMX automatically assigns elevations (existing and
     proposed); the solution can also now automatically connect contour
     lines on plans. Estimators are able to save significant time and
     dramatically improve accuracy during earth-measuring takeoff.
 --  Inventory Management - this new module provides a powerful inventory
     system suitable, helping construction and service contractors to
     minimize tasks while maintaining adequate stocks of critical items.
