– Textura joins leading companies to discuss private-sector initiative to expedite payment to small suppliers
CHICAGO, July 11, 2014 – Textura Corporation (NYSE: TXTR), the leading provider of collaboration solutions for the construction industry, announced today that Textura Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Allin joined executives from several other companies at the White House today to discuss SupplierPay, an initiative the Obama Administration is launching to help strengthen small businesses by increasing their working capital.
Textura was one of 26 companies invited to take part in the roundtable discussion. Companies participating in SupplierPay have committed to pay their small suppliers faster or to help small suppliers access lower-cost capital. Other participants in today’s meeting included Apple, IBM, AT&T, Coca-Cola, FedEx, Johnson & Johnson, Salesforce, Intuit, and Lockheed Martin.
SupplierPay is an outgrowth of President Obama’s 2011 QuickPay initiative, which requires federal agencies to expedite payments to small business contractors. QuickPay has generated over $1 billion in cost savings for small businesses, leading to greater investment and job creation, according to the White House.
