CHICAGO, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR) , the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that the City and County of Denver, one of America's favorite cities and known as the "Mile High City," is using Textura-Construction Payment Management (CPM) to automate construction project invoicing and to speed payment to contractors on all Denver Public Works construction projects.
The City and County of Denver will use CPM to achieve a paperless billing process. All Public Works construction projects will utilize CPM to electronically collect invoices and lien waivers for all project participants. Subcontractors will be paid via direct electronic payments into their bank accounts.
Terri Goodwin, Contracts Manager for Denver Public Works, stated "We've made the decision to implement Textura-CPM on city projects to improve the efficiency of our internal processes and to get our Prime Contractors paid faster. Knowing that we have complete and accurate data and all current lien waivers for every invoice allows us to process each pay application in a matter of days rather than weeks."

DPW construction project responsibilities include design and construction management of streets, bridges, and public buildings; transportation planning, engineering and operations offices; and, protection of the urban environment.
