Easy sub-contractor management ability, time tracking, resource planning and the easy tracking of project equipment using Raken is even enjoyable. Team coordination and project comments and recording sharing among the team members, this is a great tool for that.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
