Pros: simplicity, affordability

Cons: limited search ability from the app.

Overall: 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: Started out with the free trail version on a single construction project, and after seeing how well it worked and how easy it is, we are implementing this program on several additional teams to get buy-in from more company members. It is extremely easy and QUICK to fill-out valuable daily information. I love the ability to quickly snap pictures right within the app and the final report timestamps the photos and formats them beautifully in the end product for distribution. Implementation of your company-specific logo is a great touch and it is very professional looking.

Cons: I wish we could add some fields / customize them a bit (for example, adding an Overtime and Double Time section to the hours). Also it would be great if we could search from within the iOS app - not just for days but also for content within reports in case we need to go back and look things up.

Overall: Due to the ease of use of this product, the entire team that now does Daily Reports does them quickly and easily and most important they do them DAILY because of this great product.

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: The best plan is expensive for a smaller company.

Overall: 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.

Comments: 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. Good luck gathering this information in a timely manner! Then I ran across Raken. Didn't know anything about it but seemed worth the try. Did the 15 day trial, they even let me try it for longer. Then I introduced it to my superiors and now we use it company wide. Even the old timers can run it! Convenience is probably the best part about it. For example, if someone asks me in a meeting what I did on a certain day. I don't have to sit there and think. I just open Raken, go to the date, and boom, there it is. Another example, you can assign tasks to people on the team and give them due dates. And it stays open until that person says it is complete. This helps to keep people organized and you can hold people accountable. I can go on and on about Raken. They continue to adapt and make it easier to keep the entire team involved. Shoot, as a General Contractor, Raken lets subcontractors use it under us and it compiles their log with ours and makes one nice daily, weekly or even a monthly report. AWESOME!

Pros: Easy to use. Easy to learn. Liked the price for what we got.

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.

Loved the ease of use and functionality of the product.

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.

Overall: 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.

Comments: When I took a position several years ago as project manager of a growing company I knew there would be numerous changes. I had managed various projects across multiple industries over the previous 15 years that all used different mechanisms and reporting platforms. At the time, I was not familiar with Raken for these purposes. However I was quickly surprised with the capabilities Raken presented, combined with the complete ease of use. Naturally I had several questions initially for making changes to new staff and adding functions to our account. It was then that I saw the excellent customer support and service that Raken provides. I would highly recommend Raken to any company that requires daily reporting for any purpose.

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.

Comments: 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.

Comments: An easy to use Gantt chart tool would be nice. Everything on the market is overthought and complicated and you only use 2% of the functions anyway. As a 20 year superintendent all I want is something where I type in the company name, start date and duration that's it done. Keep it simple and superintendents will use it.
