"We were one of the earliest adopters of Textura-CPM, going live with the solution in 2007," said George Heacox, VP of Finance, Donohoe Construction. "By using Textura-CPM, we've standardized the billing process throughout our organization and eliminated clerical errors from the payment application process. CPM has allowed us to provide our subcontractors with more visibility into their compliance and payment status, which has helped our relationships with our subcontractor community. And, we've been able to scale our financial operations as our company has grown."

Among the Top 25 General Contractors in the Washington, D.C. area, according to the Washington Business Journal and on ENR's Top 400 General Contractors list for over 34 years, Donohoe Construction has worked on high-profile, award-winning projects such as the Long Bridge Park and Recreation Centre in Arlington, VA, the Yale West Apartments in Washington, and The George Washington University Ames Hall Renovation & Addition. Donohoe Construction recently on-boarded it's 80th project on Textura-CPM.

Donohoe Construction uses Textura-CPM to automate invoicing, lien waiver collection, electronic payments, document compliance and reporting. CPM electronically integrates all construction payment management process into a powerful, but easy-to-use workflow that allows Donohoe to automate manual processes and eliminate the stacks of paper traditionally involved in the payment process.

"Donohoe is one of the many General Contractors on ENR's Top 400 list that are using our solutions to enhance efficiency and increase productivity, and we are looking forward to supporting Donohoe as they continue to be successful."
