Overall Satisfaction with Raken

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.
  • Increased productivity
  • Easier communication
  • Faster than using any type of paper forms
We use both software. Procore, we just recently switched over to. It is a compelling program, but just at a higher price point. Raken is a more affordable option, although they may not have exactly all the features that Procore has. But it does what it needs to pretty well.
Raken has an excellent support team. Raken are pretty prompt with getting back to you. Raken also has a convenient chat feature on their website. All their support members are friendly and are good at helping you understand and resolve your issues.

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.
