CHICAGO, Sept. 23, 2015 /CNW/ -- Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), a leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that general contractor Robins & Morton has streamlined its subcontractor prequalification process and improved risk mitigation with the Textura-PQM™ solution.
"We had struggled with a paper-based, decentralized approach to prequalification that, because of overlap in our subcontractor relationships across our offices, created both redundant work and inadequate visibility into the process of prequalification for our project teams," Robins & Morton CFO Edward Cassady said. "With PQM, we can manage prequalification information in a centralized database of subcontractors that can be accessed by appropriate staff at any of our offices."
Robins & Morton, a Birmingham, Ala.-based general contractor specializing in complex healthcare, commercial, education and power/industrial projects, has eight offices throughout the southern and southeastern United States. The company, which recently ranked No. 88 on Engineering News-Record's 2015 "ENR 400" list of the largest general contractors, has also used Textura's Construction Payment Management™ (CPM®) solution for several years.
Textura-PQM facilitates online collaboration to centralize, simplify and streamline the complex process of qualifying subcontractors. PQM provides robust custom workflows, real-time data visibility and a secure central database of all subcontractor prequalification data, including financials, Subguard eligibility, safety record, project workload and other critical selection criteria. Textura's prequalification solution enhances risk mitigation for general contractors and enables them to identify the best-quality bids for projects, while subcontractors benefit from greatly streamlined and simplified data entry.
"PQM has provided much greater visibility into the qualification status of subcontractors, and we can collect, manage and communicate both current and historical information much more easily. Textura-PQM has streamlined our process overall and helped mitigate risk for Robins & Morton and our clients," Cassady said.
"The prequalification process can be challenging for general contractors of all sizes, and large organizations face even greater complexity due to their scale and reach," said Michael Goldstein, Vice President of Client Services for Textura. "We're thrilled that Robins & Morton has successfully centralized and streamlined its processes with Textura-PQM, with the benefits extending to its subcontractors and clients. We look forward to being a partner in their success going forward," Goldstein said.
