APPLETON, Wis., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boldt Company, a national contractor specializing in a wide range of professional construction services, announced their introduction of the Textura Pre-Qualification Management (PQM) system to the subcontractor community in early 2012.
Richard DeVries, Director of Enterprise Risk at The Boldt Company, said, "With the implementation of PQM, Boldt has significantly improved the effectiveness of its subcontractor default risk management program. We definitely have given our subcontractors greater control over access to their confidential prequalification data, and provided them with a more secure environment for their prequalification data storage."
Adopting Textura—PQM allowed Boldt to rapidly deploy a single, industry-standard prequalification system. Textura's PQM application allows project team members, regardless of their location, to access real-time prequalification risk scores and analysis notes for subcontractors, while limiting access to subcontractor confidential data to a few corporate risk analysts. PQM provides Boldt with a tool to maintain an ongoing dialogue with field operations team members about the prequalification status of the subcontractors with whom they want to do business.
Patrick Allin, Textura CEO, stated "From the beginning of Textura's relationship with The Boldt Company, it was evident that Boldt's business processes and prequalification standards were industry-leading. Textura—PQM provided Boldt with a platform that allowed the company to focus its energy and resources on strengthening those standards by eliminating the need to route paper-based material through the organization and manage a manual prequalification process centrally."
TK MacKay, Textura Manager of Client Services, elaborated, "We recognized the need to customize a process flow that allowed Boldt's corporate risk staff to centrally assess up-to-date financial, insurance, and other qualification information and quickly disseminate their analysis scores of that information across the organization. Now, operation team members have real-time access to the scoring information they need, nationwide, while limiting access to the confidential data to a few senior corporate risk team analysts."
