MAPCON Maintenance Software 5.20 UPGRADE NOW AVAILABLE!

MAPCON Professional, the Windows Server edition of our Maintenance Software, has been updated with great new features, including a dashboard to instantly view the status of critical reports. The dashboard uses a Graphic Report Generator to display bar charts or pie graphs to visually show how your maintenance assets are progressing within MAPCON Professional, providing useful information in a glance!

MAPCON Technologies, Inc. has been busy developing enhancements to increase the flexibility of MAPCON’s Maintenance Software. You can now coordinate your MAPCON Professional e-mails with Microsoft Outlook so you have a record of ‘Sent Items’, and optionally track Delivery or Read Receipt notifications. We’ve also added Cost Center Budgets to allow users to track how much they can spend in each fiscal period. MAPCON Maintenance Software can quickly distribute the costs over each period, or the user can enter specific dollar amounts for each period.

There are a lot of people who like to use Google Maps on the internet, so we thought we’d take advantage of that technology. MAPCON Professional Maintenance Software now includes a place to store the Latitude and Longitude of any building location. Simply click a button to open a link to the internet and view the Google Map of that location, including satellite or Street Views (if available).

For our long time users, some of which go back over 20 years, we have enhanced the Inventory Usage Window to allow users to select a specific stockroom in which they want to see the activity. We’ve also added a routine when deleting old PM descriptions that makes it much easier to handle any outstanding work orders and close them out, too.

Give us a call at 1-800-223-4791 ask for Support and request your 5.20 upgrade today! All you need is a current annual support contract and you can take advantage of the new features!
