SAN DIEGO, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Raken, the top-rated mobile field operations solution for the construction industry, today announced it has been selected as the number one platform for management usability in small business by G2, the world's largest B2B tech marketplace for software and services that helps businesses make smarter buying decisions. The ranking reflects Raken's industry-leading adoption rates, driven by the platform's intuitive interface, and further solidifies Raken as the top choice for producing efficient daily reports and gathering insightful data from the field.
G2 scores products and vendors based on reviews gathered from their user community, as well as data aggregated from online sources and social network. The organization then applies a unique, patent-pending algorithm to the data to calculate the product's usability score. In the G2 ranking, Raken leads the industry in ease of admin and use while meeting all of the mandatory requirements workers have come to expect for daily use in the field.
"Our mission is to empower the people who build, and it's a great testament to our team delivering on that mission to be ranked first for usability by G2," said Kyle Slager, Raken's CEO and founder. "Our customers are increasingly finding that their all-in-one solutions aren't meeting the basic needs of superintendents and foremen. We're solving this problem by focusing on the field and creating an app that is easier to use than anything else out there."
Raken recently introduced several product enhancements, including Production Tracking, which provides a better way to manage productivity on construction sites and allows supervisors to track employee time and materials on site to increase profitability and ensure the project is progressing according to plan. Raken is also equipped with Toolbox Talks, a first-of-its-kind feature that streamlines the workflow of essential jobsite safety meetings, a Spanish-language option and an offline mode.
"Rankings on G2 reports are based on data provided to us by real users," said Michael Fauscette, chief research officer, G2. "We are excited to share the achievements of the products ranked on our site because they represent the voice of the user and offer terrific insights to potential buyers around the world."
