Collaborative Solution Helps Subcontractors in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Improve Efficiency and Enhance Productivity.
CHICAGO, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that with the increasing adoption of Textura-CPM™ by Subcontractors in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, the construction payment management software has become the solution of choice for Subcontractors in the Tri-State Area.
"Textura-CPM has helped us automate manual processes and reduce the amount of paper we use," said Marc Schild, Billing Administrator, LIF Industries Inc. "It has also helped us standardize the payment process across the company, which has increased the communication we have with our contractors." Based in Port Washington, NY, LIF Industries Inc. is one of the largest manufacturers and stocking distributors of hollow metal doors and frames, wood doors, architectural finish hardware and also offers install and repair services. LIF Industries uses Textura-CPM on 25 contracts with 11 different General Contractors.
"Textura-CPM has helped us stand out from our competitors," said Mike Weber, President, Island Acoustics, LLC. "We are able to focus less on completing paperwork and more on our core business. We can stay on top of compliance and legal documents better using CPM." Island Acoustics serves the Tri-State area by providing acoustical ceiling, drywall and carpentry services. Island Acoustics uses Textura-CPM on 17 contracts with 4 different General Contractors.
A web-based solution, Textura-CPM automates the entire construction payment management process, enabling Subcontractors to spend less time completing paperwork and more time on more valuable business tasks. Subcontractors save time with rapid online entry of invoices, submission of lien waivers and compliance documents, and the solution also reduces the risk of payment delay with real-time tracking of compliance status and direct electronic payments.
"Since we started using Textura-CPM, we are getting paid quicker," said Frank Juranich, CFO, Port Morris Tile. "When we do a project with a General Contractor that is also using CPM, there's a lot less time spent waiting for invoice approvals and a lot less questioning of payment amounts. Textura has created better communication with our contractors as well as a better relationship." Located in Bronx, NY, Port Morris Tile is recognized as the leader in restoration and installation of marble and stone in the Tri-State area. Port Morris Tile uses Textura-CPM on 15 contracts across 5 different General Contractor clients.
"We've even saved some money since we started using Textura," said Tom Garcia, CFO, Safway Atlantic. "Not only do we spend less time filling out paperwork and are getting paid faster, we've also reduced costs by eliminating courier and document storage fees. The information is stored on-line so it's easier to access than having to search through boxes of invoices and documents." Safway Atlantic, which specializes in urban access systems, uses Textura-CPM on 8 contracts across 5 different General Contractor clients.
"With 45,000 Subcontractor organizations using Textura-CPM, it has become the industry standard for payment management," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "We're very pleased that Subcontractors across a region as dynamic and economically important as the Tri-State area are using our solutions. We look forward to helping more Subcontractors in the Tri-State area use our solutions to enhance productivity and increase efficiency."
