CHICAGO, Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that Ryder Construction Inc., a Construction Management, General Contracting and Consulting Services company based in New York, achieved considerable gains in efficiency and productivity after using Textura CPM - Enterprise for an owner and decided to adopt use of the solution for themselves.
"We first used Textura - CPM after a client requested that we use it on a project," said Bill Freeswick, CFO, Ryder Construction Incorporated. "We were immediately impressed with the benefits it gave us by automating processes that we had been performing manually. After that positive experience, we decided to use Textura - CPM on all of our projects."
By electronically integrating all construction payment management process components into a single seamless workflow, Textura - CPM Enterprise helps companies such as Ryder Construction to automatically collect lien waivers, issue payments faster and expedite the generation of Owner invoices.
"One of the biggest efficiency improvements we've experienced with Textura is the compatibility with our Timberline Accounting System," said Freeswick. "The time savings from being able to download the subcontractor invoices from Textura into Timberline has been huge as it eliminates data entry of our subcontractor invoices." Textura - CPM integrates with a variety of job cost, accounting, scheduling, plan room, imaging and document management systems. The integration between systems reduces duplicate data entry, creating efficiencies and reducing the chance of errors.
"Being able to integrate with a company's existing IT infrastructure and bring value is at the core of our collaboration solutions," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "As Ryder continues to use our solutions, they will continue to achieve new levels of increased efficiency and productivity."
