CHICAGO, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Saunders Construction, one of the most respected commercial builders in the Rocky Mountain Region, selected Textura—CPM™ to improve the construction management process.
“Before Textura, our construction payment process was very time and paper consuming,” said Matt Peterson, Assistant Controller, Saunders. “Textura streamlines the monthly close process by reducing time spent tracking subcontractor invoices, and eliminates the need to validate invoice math. In addition, the automation of data entry for subcontractor invoices into our ERP and Imaging systems has moved us a step closer to becoming paperless. We can now allocate our resources to more business-valuable tasks.”
Powered by a sophisticated but easy to use workflow engine, Textura—CPM places the construction management process online, eliminating the mounds of paper associated with construction projects and automating processes. With CPM™, documents are electronically signed and routed for reviews and approvals. Integrating with most accounting, project management and imaging systems, CPM ensures a seamless flow of data between systems.
“Compliance is maintained in our ERP system and was previously communicated to subcontractors via fax. This delayed the communication to subcontractors and slowed their submission of required compliance documents,” said Peterson. “With Textura—CPM, we and our subcontractors have real time visibility into compliance status, which has sped up the entire payment process.”
Another advantage that Textura—CPM offers General Contractors such as Saunders is the client-orientated approach to implementation. “The team at Textura takes on the majority of the implementation work, which means we’ve been able to keep focused on our core duties,” said Peterson. A Textura—CPM implementation can happen in less than 100 hours, rather than hundreds of hours required by other solutions. Textura has the capability to be implemented at any point, even with projects already underway, without disrupting the project flow. Saunders was able to bring on all in-process projects and 300+ subcontracts to Textura—CPM in a matter of days.
“We’re very pleased a company with the reputation and stature of Saunders has started using our solutions,” said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. “They join an expanding list of contractors that have experienced the advantages of automating processes and increasing collaboration.”
