CHICAGO, April 21, 2015 /CNW/ -- Textura® Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that its Submittal Exchange® solution is now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US).
AWS GovCloud (US) is an isolated AWS Region designed to allow U.S. government agencies and clients to move sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their particular regulatory and compliance requirements and preferences.
Submittal Exchange is a collaborative online system that improves communications and processes related to exchanging, reviewing and archiving construction submittals, RFIs and other construction communications.
Availability on AWS GovCloud (US) further enhances Submittal Exchange's ability to meet the unique needs of government clients. Submittal Exchange also recently was awarded the GSA IT Schedule 70, commonly referred to as "Schedule 70."
GSA's Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) Program facilitates the negotiation of contracts between the federal government and commercial businesses. These schedule contracts contain pre-negotiated prices, delivery terms, warranties and other conditions to benefit any federal, state or local government agency.
Schedule 70 is the largest, most widely used acquisition vehicle in the federal government, providing access to products and services from more than 5,000 certified partners. The GSA evaluates applicants through a stringent process assessing organizational structure, performance history, customer satisfaction and more.
"With GSA Schedule 70 benefits and now increased security through AWS GovCloud (US) for government construction project communication, Textura is even better positioned to serve this important client segment," said Submittal Exchange President James Purpura.
