CHICAGO, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation, the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Johnson Carlier, one of the oldest and most respected construction contractors in Arizona, has selected Textura—Construction Payment Management (CPM) to help the growing company improve efficiency and productivity.
"Textura CPM allows us to do a lot more with the resources we already have in place," said Helen Spencer, CFO, Johnson Carlier. "It has transformed the way we manage subcontractor billings and payments. Our Project Managers are out of the office most of the time, so before there would often be stacks of pay applications sitting on their desks waiting to be approved, which slowed down the entire process. Textura CPM allows our Project Managers to approve pay applications from the field, speeding up the process. By automating construction payment processes, our staff can focus on serving our clients instead of dealing with stacks of paper."
CPM transforms construction payment management by eliminating inefficient, manual processes and integrating billing, lien waiver collection, compliance management and payments into one seamless workflow. Web-based, Textura—CPM moves the construction payment process online, making it more accessible and collaborative for all project participants.
"Another factor in our decision to implement CPM was how easy it is to use," said Spencer. "Several of our Project Managers had used Textura—CPM at previous employers and already knew the efficiencies it brings. When we learned that almost 80% of our sub-contractors were already using CPM with other contractors, we realized that it was time to take a serious look at the solution. Once we made the decision, getting started was easy. We were initially concerned about implementing in-process projects, but the Textura team simply loaded the contract balances and our subs were ready to bill on the next draw."
"We're very pleased to have Johnson Carlier join our expanding list of Arizona clients," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "Johnson Carlier has experienced the value in eliminating paper and manual processes from the construction payment process and I'm confident that they will continue to discover benefits from using Textura's collaboration solutions."
