Introducing Raken Time Cards
By Nathan | Posted on February 20th, 2018
We are pleased to announce Raken Time Cards, the newest update to the Raken Daily Reporting app that enables superintendents and foremen to quickly track hours in the field while streamlining payroll for the office.
Raken Time Cards were designed to be quick and easy to use, sporting features that make the time card and payroll process easier than ever.
Check out our head of product development, Stan Singh, as he introduces Raken Time Cards.
Who Uses Raken Time Cards?
Anyone who has ever had to chase down workers asking them for their time.
Anyone who has ever gotten a random text at the end of the week and had that pass for a time card.
Anyone who has ever looked down at a scribbled piece of paper and had to decipher what that meant in terms of hours spent on which cost codes.
Anyone who has ever looked at their time card system and discovered that workers clocked in, but forgot to clock out and have apparently been on the jobsite for 2 straight days.
It's also for anyone who has ever been in the office looking at a whole stack of paper time cards from different sites.
Anyone who has ever had to tackle that stack of paper and put in time, one site at a time, into an Excel spreadsheet for processing.
Anyone who has ever wondered what the labor budget was looking like and had to forget about it because the hours weren't in yet, or they weren't organized.
If you've found yourself in a situation like that, then we've got news for you. You've got a time card problem. Luckily, Raken Time Cards has a solution for you.
Raken Time Cards Means Faster Hours Tracking in the Field
Like everything Raken does, we designed our Time Cards with the field in mind. What that means is that we did a deep dive into what superintendents and foremen were looking for in a time card solution and designed our latest update to the Raken app to make it easy for them to use, regardless of their comfort level with technology.
First of all, we put the time card workflow right into your mobile phone so you can input hours wherever you are, not sitting in the trailer.
When a superintendent or foreman puts over 8 hours into Raken that time is automatically split between OT, RT and DT with a single tap. You can even go and split a crew's hours between different cost codes within a single day.
Is one guy working late? After you put in a crew's hours you can make changes to individual workers within that crew, and everything updates automatically.
Streamlined Payroll in the Office
If you're a project manager or payroll administrator, Raken Time Cards are a perfect solution to get accurate, up to date information from the field you can use in the office.
Raken Time Cards information is updated as soon as your superintendent's input new information so you can know, right away, what the labor budget looks like for each cost code across your sites. You can even run a cost code report to get even more information and always stay on top of the budget.
Each report in Raken is standardized, which means no more searching different paper time cards looking for the information you need to process payroll. You can even export a Raken Time Card into Excel to work even faster.
You can also schedule time card and cost code reports right from the app. If you process payroll on Friday, you can set Time Cards to get your reports before you get to the office in the morning so you know you're working from the most recent, relevant data possible.
Raken Time Cards is in your App
Raken Time Cards is a big step for us-- we designed our daily reporting workflow to be the fastest, easiest process around and we are bringing that same commitment to time cards. We're sure the new workflow will save time in the field and in the office, helping crews be even more efficient. Raken Time Cards are being rolled out to all of our current customers over the next few weeks, just look for the notification in your app.
