Our mission

To be the platform for construction payments.

We come to work every day because we want to bring innovative software solutions to the construction industry.

About Our Platform

lienwaivers.io brings together best-of-breed technologies to provide a seamless payment experience for your contractors. Our intuitive, cloud-based platform integrates directly with common construction accounting and project management software, to facilitate the exchange of lien waivers for payments with a click of a button. Built by developers, for developers, our developer-friendly API can be used for custom integrations and partnership opportunities.

Lenders, builders, developers and contractors throughout the Midwest are realizing the benefits of reduced paperwork and streamlined payments on the lienwaivers.io platform.

Notarize is improving the way businesses and individuals execute their most important transactions. We’re excited to launch an integration with lienwaivers.io, which for the first time in the country will empower construction companies and their trade partners to make payments faster and more securely by notarizing their documents remotely online.
