Pros

Integration process was surprisingly painless, mobile app is great. The ease of creating, submitting, approving, and logging change orders on mobile is excellent.
It helps to be able to track the progress of project either simple or complex. It helps each residents builders to have direct report and access to projects progress.
Support has been amazing as well as all the friendly staff. Very personable and knowledgeable.

Pros

I couldn't be happier with the ease of use, time savings, outstanding format and customer service. I HIGHLY recommend this to any contracting firm looking for a way to streamline their daily reports.
Raken solves that with its easy to use interface, cloud storage, and impressive looking reports. What sold us the most on the product was its ability to incorporate photos into our reports.
This is a good piece of software for small to mid size contractors. It allows easy tracking of time and costs allocated to a project, and can help keep you on track to maintain profitability.

Cons

Also the estimating inputting seems to be a struggle. Maybe its that we are new but going from Estimate to SOV to whatever is next is a struggle and we still dont have it down.
Difficult to set up and use. Integration and transferring from screen to screen and phase to phase crazy.
Very rude customer service. Huge mistake trying this company.

Cons

The app keeps logging my guys out & they have problems logging back in. I am having problems getting my reports.
As a Superintendent for a commercial construction company, it is hard to find time to sit down and fill out your log book. Let alone track down pictures and organize them so they relate to that day.
I do have a suggestion if you could make the workers to where if you made a mistake while inputting their information (name) to be able to edit instead of having to delete & redo.

Pictures & videos are everything when it comes to project documentation. This app has this ability more than any other app I’ve seen.

Pros

I have the ability to give it to field foreman for site documentation and they are able to keep jobs on track.

Cons

I do like the original version before the software update. Seemed more streamline.

Vendor response

Hey Shawn, thank you for the feedback! We'll pass your comment about the update on to our product team. We appreciate the review. Please contact us at help@rakenapp.com if you need any help or have any questions!

digital time cards

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Its at the fingertips of the foreman and since they are typically on their phone or computer then this is a fast option.

Cons

We currently use a all in one project management software that has this option included so we have no use for a stand alone.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review! We have native integrations with all of the top project management solutions. If you find Raken's reporting better than those solutions, you can automatically sync your daily reports and time cards into all-in-one tools.

Great App

Reviewed 4 years ago

Not only have these daily logs saved our company money from lending legal action (we had photographic eveidence of work completed according to schedule), but some of our vendors have started using Raken for their projects as well.

Pros

We have constructions project all over the state. Raken easily allows remote foreman to update the project management teams with photos, surveys, and daily information as well as an hours worked log.

Cons

As a larger company, we currently have only been able to assign a single administrator to the system. There likely is a way to do this but we haven’t contacted support.

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback, Jason! Please click ¿Team¿, select the desired team member, then click ¿Projects¿ to change someone¿s role to Account Admin. If you need help, please contact us at help@rakenapp.com. Thank you!

User friendly

Reviewed 5 months ago

The fact if used on a daily basis, this tool has been extremely helpful when stating our point on site conditions.

Pros

Easy to deploy, train new users, access to information. This tool has helped us in multiple situations where the site supervision team will file reports to the GC claiming that the subcontractors are not preforming. I will have the foreman fill out a report along with pictures showing the real conditions of the site, simply send the report to the PM. This normally ends the false claims of underperformance.

Cons

Would like to see more "tool-box" talks sheets, relevant to the various trades. More enforcement on making sure that the foremen carry out this task weekly

Documenting and professionalism

Reviewed 4 years ago

Our overall experience with Raken has been great. We have been awarded new projects because the general contractor liked receiving these reports. Also we have been able to demonstrate the work was done when going through a lawsuit.

Pros

Provides documentation for back up, shows your company is profesional, encourages accountability

Cons

Pictures are sometimes misdated, different profiles add up to the price and it can become expensive.

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback! Please reach out to us at help@rakenapp.com and we will be happy to assist you with this.

The Raken App is so great. There is no way you could exist in big time commercial construction without it. It puts all your daily logs in a great, well organized, professional document. You can look back on any situation that happens on your job site with ease. I would recommend this app for any contractor out there. Big or small.
