New York, NY (PRWEB) December 02, 2014
Turner Construction Company announced today that it has worked closely with Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR) and Greensill Capital to develop a new program that accelerates payments to subcontractors.
The Turner Accelerated Payment Program™, which the company anticipates it will begin rolling out in early 2015, will significantly accelerate payments to subcontractors thereby improving their cash flow and strengthening their balance sheets. Textura will provide the systems platform for this program via its Construction Payment Management™ (CPM™) program, while Greensill will perform the underwriting and provide the funding.
Turner recently began a company-wide implementation of Textura CPM™ to make the payment management process more efficient for Turner, its contractors, and its clients, and to facilitate deployment of the Accelerated Payment Program™.
“Turner signs more than 24,000 contracts with contractors on 1,500 projects on a total of $10 billion of construction projects annually. We developed this program because improving cash flow to subcontractors addresses one of their challenges and we expect it will reduce risks and lower costs for Turner and our clients,” said Karen Gould, chief financial officer of Turner.
