"Textura—CPM Enterprise gives us an enhanced level of visibility into the construction payment process," said Michael Doyle, CPA, CFO of Fifield Companies.  "Using Textura, we are able to bring transparency to the draw process, which has helped us standardize that process across all of our development projects. We are also able to expedite payments and automate processes that we had been previously performing manually." 

Textura—CPM™ reduces the stacks of paper associated with a construction project by placing processes online.  Powered by a powerful workflow engine, CPM integrates billing, lien waiver collection, compliance management and payments into a seamless flow, eliminating wasteful steps and improving efficiency. 

"We now have a single solution to offer our contractors and vendors to facilitate the payment process," said Doyle.  "All of the information is stored in a centralized database, so it's much easier to share, store and analyze information in multiple offices.  Textura allows our staff to spend time on more business valuable tasks rather than hunting down paper invoices." 

An urban infill developer and acquirer of mid and high-rise apartments and offices, Fifield has a history stretching back to 1974.  Fifield blends acquisition, finance and development expertise with an adaptive property marketing capability able to lease or sell properties to create a one-stop solution for its acquisitions. 

"Textura—CPM Enterprise solution allows developers like Fifield to provide greater visibility and control over the billing and payment processes resulting in lower costs and a scalable solution," said Patrick Allin, Chairman And Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corporation.  "Our collaboration solutions will support Fifield's continued growth and we are proud to have them as a client."
