Arita/Poulson General Contracting Uses Textura-Construction Payment Management to Pay Subcontractors and Sub-Tier Suppliers
CHICAGO, Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Textura Corporation, the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that Arita/Poulson, a leader in the Hawaii construction market, has effectively used Textura–Construction Payment Management (CPM) for five years.
John Evarts, Arita/Poulson Project Engineer, stated, “The Construction Payment Management solution Textura provides has been an integral part of our business for the past five plus years. Not only has it improved our efficiency in communicating and paying our prime subcontractors, but it has provided an efficient solution to pay material suppliers and second tier subcontractors directly if the need arises. Subcontractors and suppliers receive payment faster when paid electronically via the Textura–CPM system and owners achieve peace-of-mind knowing the funds provided are reaching the organizations that are completing the work in an efficient manner.”
Evarts continued, “This in turn has created a more transparent atmosphere between the General Contractor, Subcontractors and Sub-tier Vendors. This transparency is vital to the ethical performance and administration of any project, as all entities are now made accountable to each other and bound by the shared execution of the invoicing and disbursement system. Moreover, the collection and storage of all required documentation into a centralized filing system standardizes and streamlines the project memorialization process, thereby helping to eliminate any potential liability issues.”
Patrick Allin, Textura Chairman and CEO, stated, “Arita/Poulson’s forward thinking has created an environment where owners and subcontractors want to partner with them. It’s not surprising to see a company like Arita/Poulson be an early adopter and rapidly implement a technology like CPM; they readily saw the benefits for themselves and their partners. CPM puts material suppliers and sub-tier subcontractors in direct communication with their prime subcontractor and ensures the general contractor is well aware of their involvement and financial responsibility on the project.”
Evarts concluded, “For five years we have watched as Textura’s market penetration in Hawaii has steadily grown and have recently seen it rapidly accelerating. Subcontractors and material suppliers see the value CPM provides and are requesting to be paid electronically. The market acceptance of CPM validates our decision to lead the market in its use.”
