What construction technology is right for you? As technology companies continuously flood the construction industry with offerings, it has become a major challenge for construction companies to answer that question.

Each session will be a sales-free educational overview of key functionalities and expert analysis on how a technology can be used in your business. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to help answer the question, “Is this the right technology for my business?”.

After seeing endless construction software that was complex and made for the office, Raken designed a tool with the field crews in mind. It’s the easiest app to use that helps you collect better data straight from the field. Instead of spending an extra hour at the end of every day, superintendents and subcontractors can complete their daily reports as they walk the jobsite. They can quickly complete a daily checklist, log any notes with voice-to-text, complete time cards, take photos, then sign and send the report—all in one place.

In addition to daily reports, Raken helps streamline time cards, production tracking (including materials and equipment logs), and toolbox talks. It makes it easy to collect better jobsite data, while giving the office real-time dashboards and insights into what’s happening each day. In this webinar, we’ll cover: dailies that will help you win more jobs and protect you from litigation, easy time tracking to streamline payroll, getting visibility into jobsite progress with dashboards and insights, and performing toolbox talks to be compliant on your safety metrics.
