zlien - Cowden’s Payment Process Partner

 Cowden has partnered with zlien - a collaborative construction payment solution for lien process management. On projects for which Cowden is providing services or material, zlien staff may reach out to acquire project details or send notices on Cowden’s behalf.

As a material supplier in Washington State, we are required by law to fully inform all parties of our involvement in their projects. These requirements vary based on our role, on the project, our customer’s role, and the project type. As a part of this process, you may receive certain types of notices from us (processed and delivered by zlien) through the course of our work, as well as after completion. These notices help us keep all parties informed of key payment milestones and due dates to make sure payments are accurate, easy, and on time.

 At Cowden, we believe this is an important process. While required by law, it also ensures transparent and accurate information is communicated to all parties in the payment chain. It’s important to note that this communication does not reflect on the creditworthiness of any party nor does it indicate expected problems regarding payment.

 We highly value our relationships with customers, and this process helps us build strong partnerships by exchanging important project and payment information early and often on every project.

 If you would like to learn more about our partnership with zlien feel free to call our office at (360) 592-4200 ext. 215 or visit zlien’s website.
