CHICAGO, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation, the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Bartlett Cocke General Contractors, one of the largest, most respected and trusted general contractors in Texas, has chosen Textura Construction Payment Management (CPM) to help improve efficiencies and reduce risk in the construction payment management process.
"Before Textura—CPM, we were undertaking a lot of processes manually," said Bobby Rios, CFO, Bartlett Cocke General Contractors. "We were spending too much time pushing paper around, hunting down authorizers for approvals, reviewing pay applications for accuracy, cutting checks and scheduling them for pickup. CPM automates all of these processes, reducing the amount of paper and allowing us to focus on our core business, which is serving our customers with top quality construction services."
Powered by a sophisticated but easy-to-use workflow, Textura—CPM allows General Contractors such as Bartlett Cocke to automate the pay approval and lien waiver processes and better manage subcontractor compliance with automatic notifications of holds or expired insurance. By placing the construction payment management process online, CPM reduces the amount of paper involved and makes it easier for accounting departments to access historical information about pay applications and all associated documents.
"We're using CPM to increase collaboration between our teams in the field and our accounting team in the office," said Rios. "With Textura—CPM we are standardizing processes and increasing transparency in the payment process, which leads to better communication between all of our teams." Bartlett Cocke has offices in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Houston and provides General Contracting, Construction Management and Design/Build services throughout Texas.
"Bartlett Cocke has joined other industry leading general contractors by opting to improve the construction payment management process and collaboration with Textura's solutions," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "We are certain that they will achieve new levels of success with the help of our collaboration solutions and we are very pleased to have them as a client."
