Raken was named the Best Construction App for Reporting by TSheets, a business software leader in tracking, managing, and reporting time. TSheets periodically issues "Best Of Awards" to various industry products, looking for features that help a company to run more efficiently and productively. Being able to be mastered quickly, and the ability to be used easily by employees certainly doesn't hurt in the eyes of TSheets' judges, either. In its most recent contest, construction apps were the competitors, with a whopping one hundred nominees being considered. Winners and runner-ups were selected in ten different categories.
And it wasn't just the opinions of the TSheets judges that determined the winner of the best construction app for reporting. Before naming a winner, the opinion of construction industry experts was sought, and the results of industry peer voting were tallied. In addition, every top construction app nominee had to score high marks in a variety of fields. These "talent contests" included:
•Demonstrating expertise in performing certain tasks •Ease of use of the app •The quantity of functions the app could perform •The performance of the app's quality assurance team •The app developer's performance record •Company's average customer performance ratings in app stores •Ratings from other industry and media sources •Number of users of the app
Noting that use of construction software applications had increased within the industry by 20% in just a little over two years, TSheets editors stated in a company "infograph" that the use of apps like Raken would be transformational within the construction industry, creating improvements in communication, collaboration, and profitability.
Reviewers of Raken App certainly agreed with TSheets’ assessment. They stated that they found Raken's software easy to use and understand, with rapid results, and considered it a product that their firms would use on a regular basis. And Raken offers a number of collaborative features in addition to daily reporting fields, including real time viewing and editing capabilities, photo and video inclusion, warning and notification updates, and the ability to create weekly and monthly reports. Considering all of this, Raken isn't a must-have simply because it's an award winner. It's a must-have because it's essential for creating a modern, profitable construction firm.
