Standardized and secure payment management workflows: owner billing

Quickly roll up subcontractor invoices into the general contractor’s owner billing, eliminating dual data entry.

Generate or print all the owner billing documents with the "print draw documents" functionality, making a tedious task easy to accomplish in seconds.

Quote from Andrea Barney, Senior Construction Accountant, Digital Realty: “The signature workflow makes it seamless to know when an invoice is ready to be reviewed and to track what signatures are pending. This makes for quicker approvals and faster payments. Gone is all the manual entry into spreadsheets.”

What customers are saying about payment management workflows

Digital Realty has built a large global platform with multitenant data center capacity. To maintain pace with their rapid expansion, Digital Realty manages multiple construction projects around the world. The entire construction supply chain works together to build their vision.

Effective compliance and lien waiver management: notifications

Effective compliance and lien waiver management: enforcement

Enforce the use of standardized forms, including lien waivers and invoices. Prevent unauthorized or fraudulent payment activity from occurring.

Quote from Adam Nickerson, Chief Financial Officer, Alston Construction: “The way Oracle Textura manages compliance docs and lien waivers protects the company, and it protects the owner. My project accountants might have 15 projects with 20 subcontractors each, plus all the lower tiers. It sometimes feels like stacks of lien waivers are flying at your desk. With Oracle Textura, we don’t worry—everything is accurate and where it needs to be.”

What customers are saying about compliance and lien waiver management

Alston Construction provides general contracting, construction management, and design-build services for an array of industries and projects. In the last decade, they’ve grown from roughly US$200 million in revenue to more than US$2 billion today, and Textura has been supporting their growth through the years.

Timely electronic payments: disbursement tracking and notifications

Track invoicing and disbursements and notify all stakeholders at every stage in the process. Automated deposit notifications help reduce in-house and subcontractor payment status inquiries.

Timely electronic payments: payment holds

Automate payment holds for lien waiver or compliance deficiencies. Ensure the general contractor never pays a subcontractor unless all the required documents are accounted for.

Timely electronic payments: payment acceleration

Help subcontractors overcome working capital challenges by offering early payment programs integrated with your payment workflows.

Oracle Textura Payment Accelerator is an optional feature that enables a general contractor to create and run accelerated payment programs that they can offer to their subcontractors.

Quote from Sarah Murray, Vice President, Wood Partners: “With Textura, we appreciate the fact that we could pay subcontractors electronically without our company being responsible for maintaining their banking information. Subcontractors are responsible for their own banking information, and that avoids a potential security issue for us.”

What customers are saying about timely electronic payments

Wood Partners is one of the largest multifamily real estate developers in the US. As an owner-developer, they deal with several hundred subcontractor invoices each month as well as all the related contracts, compliance documents, compliance requirements, lien waiver collection, and payments.

Collaboration in a shared environment: auditing and security

Use the logs for version control of payment materials in a shared cloud workspace. All user actions, electronic signatures, and payment documents are preserved for auditing purposes.

Hosted on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you have secure access, SSL encryption, two-factor authentication, single sign-on, and so on.

Quote from Dave Jolin, Chief Financial Officer, Commodore Builders: “No one wants disputes. Oracle Textura gives us the capacity to work together and anticipate and fix issues before they even become issues.”
