We're proud to announce budgeted hours for Raken Time Cards, along with new enhancements to our mobile experience.
March 5th, 2019
Have you ever gone over the hours you expected on a certain project? Have you ever wanted to take a look back and find out what happened? Have you ever wondered how many more hours it will take to complete the job? With Budgeted Hours for Raken Time cards, users can get real-time insights on how their actual hours assigned to each cost code compare to the budgeted hours.
Plus, with the new enhancements to Raken's mobile app, you can access your gallery from your mobile device and instantly see photos, videos, and other files attached to a project. You can even search by date and company to make sure that you can quickly find that one item you were looking for.
Our new improvements to Raken Time Cards gives you the ability to upload or add budgeted hours to the cost codes your estimators assigned at the beginning of the project. As your superintendents in the field assign hours to these cost codes Raken provides detailed insights into how the actual hours compare to what was budgeted. You no longer have to wait until the end of the project or the end of the month to understand how you are performing. With the ability to compare budgeted vs. actual hours, you can keep close tabs on your progress in real time.
As part of budgeted hours, users now also have the ability to input physical % complete, allowing you to enter the completed work from an installation standpoint for the scope of work. Raken then calculates the projected hours for you, providing further insight and giving you an early indication into if your project is going to be in the red or not.
Sometimes, when you're on the Raken app, you want to see a certain photo from a project but you can't remember which daily report it was submitted with. Now, with Raken's latest update to the mobile app, you can access your gallery right from the project menu. Once you select "gallery" you'll be able to review your project photos, videos, and other attachments all in one location. Raken organizes the files automatically in a timeline starting with the most recent, but you can also filter by date and company to only see what you need to. Once you find what you need you can even rename or delete them right from the app.
