CHICAGO, Aug. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Fortune-Johnson, the premier contractor for multifamily projects in the Southeast, has selected CPM—Enterprise to expedite the processing of pay applications, reduce the chance for errors and bring transparency to the draw process.
"One of main reasons in our decision is the level of automation that Textura—CPM brings," said Karen White, CFO, Fortune-Johnson. "We had been using a paper-based billing process but that meant a lot of time and resources spent hunting down the right invoice and double-checking to eliminate errors. Textura—CPM automates the process, so we can spend less time focused on moving paper around and spend more time focused on valuable tasks."
Textura—CPM automates the construction payment process by using a sophisticated but easy-to-use workflow engine. An online solution, CPM allows for the easy storage and retrieval of electronic documents, reducing the amount of paper involved in a construction project and increasing efficiency and productivity.
"Textura has helped us standardize our documents and the draw process," said White. "We can now pay the subcontractors quicker, and since the information is stored in a centralized database, we know that the data is accurate." Fortune-Johnson has offices in Georgia and Virginia, and in their 20+ year history has built over 15,000 units.
"We are very pleased that Fortune-Johnson has opted to use our solutions to enhance the construction payment management process," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "By eliminating paper and automating process with our solutions, they join the expanding number of General Contractors that have experienced tangible gains in efficiency and productivity."
