CHICAGO, Nov. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Urban Oaks Builders LLC, a general contractor formed in 2011 to manage multifamily construction for Hines, has selected Textura—CPM™ to enhance efficiency and improve cash flow in the construction payment management process.
"Textura—CPM offers a more efficient way to collect billings, track compliance and collect lien waivers," said Keith Borchardt, Controller of Urban Oaks Builders.
