MABX announces Tools software updates

As part of an ongoing effort to provide its members with a comprehensive and user-friendly construction project information software system, Mid Atlantic BX (MABX) announced three updates to Tools. These updates are based on member feedback and are intended to make research and navigation easier for the end user.

The first update is to the Tools “tracked project” feature. Each user’s tracked projects will now be sorted into three categories: bidding, pre-bid, and post-bid. This will allow the user to quickly identify how far along each project is in the bidding process. All tracked projects will still be accessible from the Projects drop-down menu and under a member’s user profile.

The second update includes changes to the organization of the Project Details page. The bid date for each project will now be listed directly under the project name on the Project Details page for each project. There will also be a tracked projects checkbox next to the bid date. These changes allow the user to navigate the different tabs on the Project Details page, while always being able to see the bid date and whether or not they are tracking the project.

The third update provides members with a convenient way to add themselves to the project bidders list. For each project, Tools users will now be able to click an “Add” button under the Project Contacts tab on the details page to quickly add their contact information to the bidders list.

MABX released Tools in February of 2013. Tools is a suite of cloud-based construction project information software applications that is accessible on any computer or mobile device with an internet connection.

MABX Fleet Fuel Program

Fuel Rebates Exclusively for MABX Members

We’re pleased to introduce the MABX Fleet Fuel Program with special fuel rebates from Sunoco® exclusively for MABX Members.

As a company doing business on the road, you know how costly it can be to fuel and manage company vehicles. In today’s economy, every cent you can save at the pumps can make a significant impact on your bottom line. Every minute you save on back-end administration – collecting receipts, reimbursing drivers, etc. – means more time for you to focus on growing business and managing customer needs.

As a MABX Member, you’ll automatically save 2.25% on every gallon you fuel each month at Sunoco, or up to 3% per gallon if you fuel at higher volumes. Plus every MABX Fleet Fuel Program participant could save even more through the collective buying power of MABX.

Program participants will not only benefit from these valuable fuel rebates, but from additional time- and cost-savings features including:

  • The ability to lower overall fleet management costs by setting driver purchasing policies
  • Access to over 4,700 Sunoco stations nationwide
  • Fraud protection with driver ID (PIN) and odometer prompts at the pump
  • Reports that detail where and when drivers have made purchases and for how much, helping to reduce unauthorized spending
  • Data showing how well vehicles are performing on the road
  • Reduced administrative time, consolidated billing and reporting with single management view
  • Easy online bill payment and account management

Whether your business has one vehicle on the road or several, managing those vehicles doesn’t have to be costly. Join the MABX Fleet Fuel Program: contact Carl Ray, Sunoco Program Manager, at 215.200.6687 or carl.ray@wexinc.com.
