CHICAGO, Oct. 21, 2014 /CNW/ -- Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that The Wieland-Davco Corporation, an ISO 9001:2008 certified construction company with national headquarters in Lansing, Michigan, has streamlined their construction administration process using Submittal Exchange on the majority of their projects in the past 18 months.
Dan Jury, Project Manager, Wieland-Davco said, "With Submittal Exchange we are able to get things turned around a lot quicker during construction administration. We saved time from mailing and shipping, but we also saved a lot of time from automated reminders that prompt our subcontractors to get their items uploaded and architects to review and return their items as well. The reminders help keep the administration process flowing so we spend less time waiting or tracking down information we need." The Wieland-Davco Corporation strives to meet customer needs by providing a variety of services, including construction management, design/build, general contracting, green buildings and site selection.
Submittal Exchange helps architects ensure their construction projects stay on budget and on schedule by streamlining communication and automating the approval process. Submittal Exchange connects the entire project team, including architects, engineers and contractors, in a secure, online system, providing increased transparency, consistency and accountability, resulting in fewer delays and lower project costs.
"This system is very easy to use for everyone on the team, including those that may have less experience using technology," continued Jury. "Submittals, specs, drawings or any documents can be quickly distributed improving communication and creating a more collaborative project experience. Everything is considerably faster than in the manual world."
"Wieland Davco used to manage their construction administration through an internal process and primarily used email and paper files," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation. "Today they have freed up time and saved everyone from frustration by no longer having to spend time and resources for printing, shipping or searching through inboxes."
"We've been able to customize Submittal Exchange to work with our existing construction administration processes," said Jury. "We didn't have to take the time to start all over and create new processes, but rather enhanced our existing processes for the better by using this system. In doing so we were able to save time right away."
