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.

Just amazing! It doesn't matter if it is billing, recommendations, walking a non-tech employee through logging on, assisting on feature access or training, this company is by far one of the best in customer service and the level of power for field reporting is superior to anything we have had in the past!

Pros
1. Cloud based (no expensive servers, no storage limits) 2. Extremely easy to use 3. Allows Foremen/Superintendents to have very detailed field reports 4. Can share photos, recordings, weather, and reports with a link vs. large emails 5. Can track jobs by crews, employee, and cost codes 6. Easily document weather delays 7. Voice recording allows for a LOT of flexibility and complete detail 8. Phone, ipad, tablets or desktop are part of the accessibility with just a logon 9. All this at an affordable price 10. If you need to go to mediation and/or court, this is quite the electronic storage 11. Allows for employee to sign the time/work performed and no accidents 12. Easily modify your daily field report for different jobs.

Cons
1. We started when it first launched and it didn't have all the features but they were listening and added new things constantly 2. Would like to see more gps functions later for time card validating

Cons
Didn't like downloading one by one each report to save, very time consuming. Didn't like that we couldn't switch up the questions and customize those on the account we chose.

Raken for construction reporting.

Review Source: Capterra

We are steel erectors running 3 crews. We were going crazy trying to keep up with who was where doing what. None of our Forman are good with paper processing. We introduced them to Raken and we get more detail on a daily basis that we ever thought possible. They love it....what was burdensome communication is now bragging rights....the Forman take pride in their work and out-do each other with amazing photos of work completion and level of daily accomplishment. We are no longer chasing down fuel and charge card receipts as they just snap a picture of it, include it in the daily activity report and throw the paper away. No more Monday morning crisis calls from the office trying to sort payroll, either. We close everyday knowing how many hours each employee worked on each job. Payroll and cost accounting can now be processed daily and by Monday morning, payroll is all ready to go with the push of a button. The Daily Reports are also very professional in appearance. We are often treated like small potatoes by large General Contractors and now, with our Daily Reports, we no longer have long negotiation sessions over Change Order requests because our work is accurately and professionally documented along with photographs. Thanks, Raken. We are fans.

Pros
simplicity, affordability

Cons
limited search ability from the app.

Thanks for the review Susan! Glad we could make your daily reporting process much simpler.

Not my favorite estimating software

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2019-10-22
Review Source: Capterra

Several TPAs that we work with require us to use RAKEN and so we use it for the pricing of projects for our contracting team

Pros
the pros of this software are the synchronicity and ease of implementation with other software. Several of our other vital programs are able to link to Raken and so that is our favorite part about it.

Cons
Due to the newness of the cloud based system and the fact that our office is more used to programs such as Xactimate, the amount of time spent on sorting out issues is a con for us.

Pros
Its not so much about the software itself, but I love the time it saves! I am able to focus on doing what I do best yet we are still able to function as a company and stay in the loop with what is going on around us. It enables us to share information easily and efficiently without using so many words, papers, and documents.

Cons
I am not the most tech savy person nor do I love having my smartphone on job sites all the time. These are just kind of prices to pay to use the software and the pros outweigh the cons.

Raken Daily Reporting

Used daily for 6-12 months

Raken is the most affordable and efficient daily reporting tool and report generator I have used thus far.

Pros
The reporting through the subcontractors allows for the easiest and most time efficient daily documentation.

Cons
When multiple users input data offline there is a disconnect for choosing which data supersedes the others

Response from RAKEN


Glad to hear Raken is working out well for you! We¿re currently making further improvements to our offline mode so it would be great to understand your use-case fully. Feel free to reach out by email to [email protected] with any questions. Thanks!

Streamlined Reporting

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2017-03-11
Review Source: Capterra

The Raken App has streamlined our reporting process. In the past our reporting process included taking photos and field notes. At the end of the day we would have to enter field notes into a word processor, download photos and then merge and convert to a PDF file. The Raken App completes all of these processes automatically and will additonally send the final report to email recipients. Our clients receive a clean, concise report that not only documents our daily observations, but also the progression of the project. In the event that you encounter a problem while using Raken, their customer service is outstanding. I highly recommend the Raken App.

Pros
Ease of use

Cons
The best plan is expensive for a smaller company.

Raken is good. But far from the best. It is expensive for what little it does. I think for what it offers. Others will soon come along and find it essy to do more for far less

Pros
Raken is for all intents and purposes a great software for daily reports. Weather is right there. Days can be pulled up and out when needed

Cons
There are many things that other software does, within their daily reporting capabilities that Raken simply doesn't. issue tracking and reporting is much better with other software. And the ability to customize the daily reports on a per job basis is better with other software

Response from RAKEN


Thanks for your great feedback! We'd love to schedule time to go over Raken with you. Although we start out as a simple easy to use daily reporting app, there¿s a lot more that our software offers, including subcontractor collaboration, photo management, Time Cards, Summary Reports, Executive Dashboard, budgeting of hours, and more. We want to make sure that you get the most out of our solution so please email us at [email protected] to schedule a free (as always) training session with one of our team members. Thank you!

The daily report is putting time back into my day. I can do a report while at the building and don't have to do it from my vehicle or office.

Pros
With Raken I can check my jobs, take notes and photos, and quickly send to the customer. The customer knows I have been there and can review progress right from my email.

Cons
You do have to move up to the much more expensive option to customize your daily report.

Pros
Easy to use and take photos for daily construction reports. App works well and didn't crash on me. Unlimited photo storage as well as nice PDF output if needed.

Cons
I really wanted to like this software. Unfortunately it is missing some key features that I needed. You are not able to customize the reports enough for our use. Most importantly you are not able to make some fields required. I need to know YES or NO if a safety walk has been completed that day. The pricing is also way too high for a daily reporting app. Customer Service was very good and they seem to really care but they are missing some basic features.

Response from RAKEN


Thanks for your feedback, Noah! As Raken was built entirely around customer feedback, we really appreciate hearing what would help you with your reporting process. I¿m submitting your request to have a mandatory field inside the survey section. Hopefully that¿s something our team will be able to implement in a future release. If there¿s anything else you would like to see, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] Thanks again!

Loved the ease of use and functionality of the product.

Reviewed 2018-01-11
Review Source: Capterra

The main benefit was the time saving aspect of doing daily reports. No need to hand fill out a form, just open up the app right from your phone and answer a few questions and leave some comments. Super Easy. The money saved from having someone use this app far surpasses the cost of someone having to take time out of the day to fill out a daily report manually and then submit and log it.

Pros
Our company used the free trial and after seeing how easy the app was to use we plan to purchase this for future use on projects. All you have to do is answer a few questions and a daily report is automatically generated. This includes taking pictures right on the apps interface and having it time stamped and in the report. The automatic weather report was a cool inclusion as well.

Thanks Rafael. Glad to hear you find Raken easy-to-use. That's our #1 goal!

Construction is Hard, But Daily Reporting Does Not Have to Be

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-03-05
Review Source: Capterra

Raken was the solution to our Daily Report Delema. Years of filing paper dailys left us with mountains of papers to file, lack of information, and inconsistent reporting. On the surface this is OK until something happens down the road that you need to look back. Sometimes a job that is over 5 years old needs to get dusted off and dredged out from the bowels of the filing cabinet. 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. It is well worth the upgrade in the account. Since our companies owner is not around all the time it allows him to log in at the beginning of each day and quickly get a visual feel for how each of our jobs are going. And we all know that a picture is worth a thousand words. This is paramount when an issue arises; photographic proof is money- be it going into your pocket, keeping it from coming out of your pocket, or in the monetary value of time. Although I would not say that Raken takes our employees less time in the field than our traditional reports (as their product promises) it does provide us with consistent reports that are easy for us to send to clients when needed, asses for subcontractor billing and most importantly: They guys USE it. Nothing is harder than getting your construction crew to follow a clerical procedure. Raken solves that with its easy to use mobile interface.

Pros
It is a software my guys in the field will and do use. It is simple as that.

Cons
Although constant updates are good, Raken does change their online site up relatively frequently as they roll out newer and better options for the product. Although the end result is good, for those who do not adapt to change in the technology world, or are not tech savvy it can be a bit frustrating.
