A roundup of some of the more unusual items that crossed our desk recently.
Textura Corp., a provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced it has formed a partnership with AGC of Las Vegas.
In a release, Textura said AGC of Las Vegas will promote Textura's collaboration solutions as part of its membership package.
"The partnership between Textura and AGC of Las Vegas allows our members to learn more about what Textura can do for their companies," said Sean Stewart, Executive Vice President of the AGC Las Vegas Chapter. "Lien laws in Nevada can be difficult to comply with. General contractors have difficulty keeping track of the requirements, and subcontractors can find the related paperwork challenging. Textura software helps solve these issues by automating the completion and tracking of prime and sub-tier lien waivers. This helps ensure subcontractors are paid while continuing to manage risk to the general contractor."
Textura offers solutions to the commercial construction industry that increase efficiency, enable better risk management and provide improved visibility and control of construction activities. Textura's collaboration solutions automate manual processes and reduce the amount of paper associated with a construction project, allowing companies to focus on more business valuable tasks.
"We are pleased to form this new partnership," said Patrick Allin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Textura Corp. "Some of our earliest clients were Las Vegas AGC members, so we know they represent organizations interested in using cutting-edge technology, improving productivity and reducing risk. We look forward to working with the AGC of Las Vegas to help their members improve efficiency and reduce waste by using our solutions."
