Great daily log tool for the job site.

All of our field workers mainly use Raken. They keep track of man-hours, daily logs, and pictures of the progress on each job. Raken helps HPS keep track of all our jobs in one easy to use interface. The software is reasonably priced and very simple to use.
  • Keep track of daily reporting
  • Send reports and updates to other members of the project
  • Production tracking
  • Timecards
  • Sometimes the app will run slow or crash on the guys in the field. It doesn't happen too often though.
  • An easier way to download all project Daily Reports at one time.
Raken is a great way to keep track of the day to day work being done on the job site. It's especially good at keeping all members of the project on the same page and all updated with the most current information on the job. Photos help assist office personnel and Project Managers of the progress on the job site.

Great tool to bring your company out of the daily report dark ages

Raken is used by our field operations team to track subcontractor progress, hours, safety reporting, job site progress, weather, and other daily events. Our superintendents are required to complete 1 daily Raken report that is submitted to a shared folder where anyone in the company can view job site progress, subcontractor hours, etc. Raken solves the issue of using paper reporting for on-site team members. Our field teams can walk throughout the day and take pictures and add notes, then sit at the end of the day (or week) and finalize their report to submit. Once submitted it is easily accessible by others.
  • Great iPhone application - The application makes reporting and adding photos very easy.
  • It's easy to navigate different days and reports. Or to find keywords or subcontractors and when they performed work.
  • I hear some feedback from our field team that occasionally the application is slow or crashes on their devices.
Raken is great for any large or mid-size general contractor that collects the superintendent's daily reports. The clean, easy to navigate application is perfect for everyone, even the "old-school" superintendents that are not as tech-savvy. Having the ability to view different jobs across the company in one application as a PM is a great tool to have.

Great product to automate daily reports

All of our superintendents use Raken for our daily reports. The reports are sent to our project clients and owner to ensure work is being completed properly and on time. Because it’s so simple to use, all our employees fill out the reports and get them sent in regularly. The photos and information prevent having to constantly go out to every job site. It saves us time and money.
  • Automation
  • Daily reports
  • Access to past projects for admin
  • How reports are exported
Raken is well suited for when you have multiple smaller (~$1-3M) projects at one time and want to keep track of everything happening on site. Raken is good for projects up to about $5M or so. The simple interface makes it incredibly easy to use, but I see the simplicity being an issue for larger projects when you need more information.

Real time info for construction industry.

TTI is currently using Raken in the field on two projects. We are still getting familiar with the program.
  • Meets the daily requirements of construction paperwork getting into the office.
  • Attachments of the safety paperwork.
  • The time card can't be downloaded.
  • Would like time card template. Unaware if there is a time card template within the system.
The data is in real-time data. It allows us to transfer safety information to the home office, to subcontractors, and to the owner. Contractors get the subcontractor info in real-time.

Vista would be better suited for our accounting as it will download the payroll. Raken is not suitable/compatible with our software so payroll has to transfer data manually into the project management software.

Raken -- Simple as it gets

Score 10 out of 10

Raken is an extremely simplistic way to track day to day activities on the job site and update all team members involved. We are able to track and log daily progress photos, which are saved and timestamped, and track subcontractor crew sizes and hours worked, etc. This keeps all team members/upper management in tune with the progress of the job at the click of a button.
  • Photo management. Construction is a risky business, and there is no better way to document, with timestamped photo documentation, the completed work on the job.
  • Timesheets. Seeing the daily/weekly/monthly work hour graphs and curves helps us to understand what has been taking place on this job site.
  • SIMPLE SIMPLE SIMPLE. Absolutely no learning curve. This is a huge plus.
  • None.
If you are looking for a very affordable software, which is extremely simple and does not compromise existing procedures and workflows, then this product is for you.
If you are looking for robust software that performs many different functions and can help implement new procedures and workflows, then this software is not for you.
