DEERFIELD, Ill., March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Corporation, the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, reported that it was the title sponsor for the recent Valley of the Sun (VOS) Anniversary Gala, a celebration of the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA) Chapter's 25 years providing quality products and services to its members.
The VOS gala was held at the Heard Museum on February 17th. The event was an opportunity for members to meet, reconnect and reminisce about the successes of the past and celebrate the planned growth and success for the future. The many awards that the Chapter has won over the past 25 years were prominently on display. During the evening a number of past presidents presented a retrospective of the history and achievements of the Chapter.
As title sponsor, Patrick Allin, Textura Chairman and CEO, spoke to attendees. He said, "There are two reasons why we agreed to sponsor this evening. First, it is an opportunity for us to recognize our local staff. Michelle Grider, your event Chair, and Gennifer Cosper lead our Phoenix office and work hard to provide outstanding service to our clients in the Valley. The second reason we sponsored this event is to acknowledge how important this market is to Textura. We have over 2,700 subcontractors, 45 general contractors and 40 owners as clients in the Valley. This market has long been vital to our success. Tonight is a chance for us to give back and to help you celebrate a remarkable achievement."
The VOS Chapter of the CFMA is a broad based organization of professionals committed to serving the construction industry. They are dedicated to member service by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and a source of educational programs directed to their specific needs. They strive to invest in their community through involvement in industry-related issues and charitable endeavors.
Michelle Grider, Textura Manager and VOS CFMA member, served as the Committee Chair for the 25th Anniversary Gala. She commented, "The dedication of the members in this Chapter to education, information sharing and our community is very impressive. The Chapter has been a great environment for me in terms of learning and networking. I offered to help make this event possible at a Chapter Board meeting. I saw it as a natural opportunity to contribute; what better way than to help celebrate past achievements and begin planning the successes of the future."
Founded in 2004, Textura has developed the only robust collaborative industry solutions for construction payment management, Textura--CPM, and for pre-qualification management, Textura--PQM.
Textura--CPM electronically integrates all construction payment management process components –billing, lien waiver collection, statutory declaration collection, sub-tier waivers, compliance management, and payments – into one seamless work flow. CPM helps contractors and others involved in construction projects realize significant efficiency benefits from automation and streamlining; and, risk reduction from improved control and visibility.
Textura--PQM automates the entire pre-qualification process for everyone by facilitating the electronic submission, review, approval and updating of all pre-qualification documents. PQM's online data management system speeds the pre-qualification process by allowing subcontractors to enter their information one-time into a database which can then produce tailored pre-qualification forms that provide specific information required by individual general contractors. PQM provides contractors with dramatic efficiency benefits and a foundation for better information and decision-making. PQM supports MWBE programs. Please visit our website at www.texturacorp.com.
