    Does any of the Cafe users have experience with Ranken daily log software?
    If so, what has been the experience, positive, neutral, or negative?

    It looked fairly user friendly.

    thank you,
    Joe Harper

    We have been integrating the Raken daily reporting on our projects for the past year or so.  Right now we are using it on about half of our projects and it is very user friendly.  The Owners we work with really like it as they can be copied daily on the reports and if they are not copied daily there is still the option to go back and send them old reports if they request them.  Im not sure about the mobile app specifically though as our superintendents are hesitant to use anything other than their computers right now.  We did have a couple projects where we tested some tablets in the field and the Raken reporting on those seemed to be seamless but our field guys are still hesitant to make the switch to tablets at this time so were back to the desktop / computer version.

    I apologize.  Raken, not Ranken.

    ​Hi Joe,

    Our foreman use the Raken mobile app on their tablets and it has been a positive experience.  The Project Managers review the daily logs and I haven't heard of any complaints.

    Regards,
