Texco Construction Uses Jobpac To Disrupt Mature Industrial Design and Construct Market

Texco Construction, a young but rapidly establishing industrial design and construct building company, has chosen Jobpac, the integrated construction software solution, to run complex projects as the company grows and establishes itself firmly as a challenger in its sector.

Founded by 26 and 28 year old co-founders Matthew Barker and Tom Bull just two years ago, Texco specialises in the design and construction of industrial facilities, ranging from simple warehouses and distribution centres to more complex projects such as cold storage and manufacturing facilities. Since inception, it has already gained an impressive client list, including Valad Property Group and Goodman, both listed property trusts and highly regarded in the industrial property development sector. These client wins have led Texco to grow rapidly and require a more sophisticated integrated software system. The company recognised the need to implement a backbone technology solution and evaluated multiple construction software packages, including Cheops. It looked to what large construction companies were using as means of a benchmark and chose Jobpac on account of its longevity in the market, established client list and technology innovation. “Our philosophy is to behave like an established company and think like a young one,” said Matthew Barker, Co-Founder of Texco. “That means we follow the best practice and processes we know the industrial construction market requires, but rely heavily on technology to change what we see as inefficient or cumbersome. Jobpac will provide us with a proven industry solution with all of today’s technology smarts affording us a competitive advantage.” Specifically, Texco will use Jobpac’s core integrated construction software package together with its payroll module for improved project and financial management and reporting when working with clients on project feasibility, design and construct project delivery. Jobpac will help it understand how much retention Texco is holding and how much is held against it, as well as ensure invoices are correctly allocated with no overpayments to manage growth accurately.

“Operating in a high risk and competitive industry, we’re always pleased to work with companies which race ahead using technology to their competitive advantage,” said Steve Ironside, CEO at Jobpac. “Seeing what Texco has achieved in two years is incredibly impressive and we look forward to contributing to the company’s success even further.”
