Technology company adds construction payment and subcontractor compliance capabilities to its construction software suite.

Trimble has acquired privately held Flashtract, a company delivering specialized technology to streamline the flow of payment and compliance information between construction general contractors and subcontractors.

Flashtract technology is used to manage payment applications, lien waivers and other compliance and billing documentation electronically, eliminating back-and-forth communication and cumbersome document transfers. The technology, now branded as Trimble Pay, integrates with the capabilities of the company’s Viewpoint Vista ERP solution for construction, extending the connected construction technology ecosystem of Trimble Construction One.

“Secure, reliable and fast electronic management of payments and lien waivers can be vital benefits to contractors, but many still manage these processes manually,” said Lawrence Smith, vice-president of construction management solutions at Trimble. “Adding the ability to manage these workflows with subs electronically through Trimble Pay helps contractors improve compliance and keep projects on schedule and budget by reducing the two to three days of manual work per month by project managers or accountants.”

“We have earned a strong reputation for enabling general contractors to minimize legal and financial risk and improve efficiency since introducing our technology in 2019,” said Blair Chenault, co-founder and CEO of Flashtract. “Joining Trimble will allow our teams to advance these capabilities and help contractors make payments on time and keep management of financial and compliance documents from hampering project delivery.”
