With a field-first mindset, Raken helps construction crews spend less time on antiquated paperwork, increase safety, improve productivity, and enhance communication between the field and the office. The app allows contractors to input data, such as safety incidents, delays, tasks, photos, and time cards, to create a daily report. Field supervisors and the office can use the gathered data from charts and graphs for side-by-side comparisons. Further, monthly and weekly reports are then generated and delivered to owners and general contractors’ inboxes. One unique feature is their Toolbox Talks library, which allows supervisors to easily find and deliver relevant safety talks, collect signatures electronically, and attach to their daily reports. Superintendents save hours searching for and printing out talks, passing around sign-up sheets and delivering to the office manually.
“Raken is designed with the construction crew in mind. It recognizes what the field needs and delivers a solution that enables teams to collect and disseminate the data needed to get a project done on time.” —Peggy Smedley
