CHICAGO, June 9, 2016 /CNW/ -- Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), a leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that national construction management company Shawmut Design and Construction has seen significant gains in the efficiency of its payment management process – including speeding up subcontractor payments – since implementing Textura-CPM™.
"By streamlining, automating and standardizing our process, CPM has transformed how we work, benefitting both Shawmut and our project partners," said Shelley Almeida, AP Reporting Manager for Shawmut. "With the efficiencies provided by CPM, we have experienced a significant decrease in the time required to process payments to subcontractors," she said.
Shawmut is No. 59 on the ENR 400, Engineering News-Record's annual ranking of the largest general contractors. The company specializes in building impressive projects for clients within Academic, Retail, Restaurant and Sports Venues markets.
Shawmut implemented Textura-CPM in 2014. A web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Textura-CPM electronically integrates all construction payment management processes - including billing, lien waiver collection, progress claims, statutory declarations, sub-tier waivers, compliance management and payments - into a seamless, online workflow.
Construction managers like Shawmut gain both efficiency and full visibility into the real-time flow of construction project information, helping them to mitigate risk, standardize processes and documents, and increase control. In addition to getting paid faster, Shawmut's subcontractors experience reduced administrative effort and costs, enabling them to focus resources on value-added activities. Subcontractors also benefit from simplified and streamlined communications, improved lien waiver processes, and better visibility into payment and compliance status.
"Shawmut's experience demonstrates the value that CPM can deliver to all stakeholders in the payment process," said Mike Antis, Executive Vice President of Client Services for Textura®. "With more efficient processes reducing administrative burdens and improving outcomes for both general contractors and subcontractors, CPM is enabling these organizations to operate more effectively and position themselves for further growth and success," he said.
