We empower trades of every kind, but we've highlighted specifically how we help streamline the four trades below.
Features built for the field
From daily reporting to production tracking and safety, we've designed our features to be easy for anyone in the field to use.
Easy to use for everyone
Our app is intuitive and easy to use—even the least tech-savvy person on your team will understand how to use it (and will love it). Spend less time onboarding and more time building.
The first person to use Raken was Wayne, in his late 60s. He was a little nervous to use an app and an iPad. But he quickly got the hang of it, and he loves it. Now, with some of our new inspectors, it takes them 5 whole minutes to get it. Barbara T., Sr. Construction Manager
Improve your internal communication
With increased communication and digital documentation that’s stored in one place, you can easily search and find what you need without having to dig through files. You’ll know exactly who did what on the construction site (and when), and have the photos and data to prove it.
Use data to make decisions
Raken makes it easy for you to have historical production data you can reference to sharpen your pencil for bids in the future. Leverage your real-time data to make sure every project meets expectations.
Specialty Contractor FAQs
Raken is designed for all specialty contractors. We currently work with all types of speciality contractors to improve field to office communication through digital daily reports, time card management, and safety documentation.
Raken’s construction app allows Foremen and Superintendents to track their entire crew’s time through our app on their phone or tablet. We can track hours worked, break times and automatically capture names and roles for each worker.
We work closely with many accounting softwares including Foundation, Sage and Quickbooks. Our software allows your team to capture all time card data digitally in the field and then send that information to the office for expedited review and accurate processing. We have a flat file download that can be uploaded into many accounting softwares to eliminate manual entry of timecard data before processing payroll.
Yes! We have a robust library of Toolbox Talks within the Raken app that can be used to help facilitate safety talks with your crews. Raken allows your team to capture who was present at the meeting and have everyone sign off directly in the app to verify they were present. These reports can be sent directly to the office for review.
Weather is automatically captured at the jobsite three times per day and is included in the daily report. Your team no longer needs to look up the weather manually.
Absolutely, our Production tab in the app allows your field leaders to track the material that has been installed along with any owned or rented equipment being used on the jobsite. This data can be leveraged by the office to determine if expected production rates are being met in the field.
Yes! When your crew utilizes our Production tracking tab in the app, Raken captures this data and creates a production insights chart that empowers your team in the office to understand if the project is meeting the company’s production expectations. This allows Project Managers to make impactful decisions faster while enhancing your Estimator’s ability to bid new projects.
Raken has a survey section that allows your field team to notify the office if there are any delays or safety incidents. We also have a feature that will send an automatic text or email notification to the project stakeholders if there is a delay or safety incident. Shortening the time between a delay or incident occurring and notification of the team can help your project team better manage these issues and find resolution faster.
