MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Textura Australasia, a joint venture between Textura Corporation (TXTR) and Minter Ellison Lawyers, the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced that Equiset, a premier builder and developer known for efficient construction methods and superior project management, has adopted Textura–CPM to help improve efficiency, reduce risk and standardise processes across the organisation.
"Textura helps us differentiate our services with more efficient internal processes and more transparency to our subcontractors," said Roy Veal, Commercial Manager, Equiset. "Textura automates many tasks that were previously manual and paper based. We no longer need to recreate each subcontractor claim to properly evaluate overbilling and unapproved variations. With Textura's automation, our Contract Administrators and Project Managers can spend more time assessing the work onsite and less time on paperwork."
"Textura–CPM also provides our subcontractors with transparency to their claim and compliance status and makes it easier for them to submit their progress claim each month," stated Veal. "Sharing this information will help enhance the strong relationships we have with our subcontractors."
As a web-based solution, Textura–CPM brings efficiency to the claims assessment process and to compliance management, including automated document expiration and payment holds. CPM reduces administrative paperwork and makes it easier for project participants in the field to access real-time information, enhancing collaboration between all project stakeholders.
Equiset is a family-owned, integrated property development, project management and construction company offering a single point of contact for project creation, planning, design, construction, management and finance.
