Sellen uses Raken mobile technology for improved legal protection
SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2018 – Sellen Construction, consistently ranked the No. 1 general contractor in the Puget Sound region by the Puget Sound Business Journal, uses Raken’s daily reporting app to capture information from the field to safeguard work and increase documenting and reporting efficiencies.
Sellen uses Raken to streamline its field reporting workflows such as daily reports, manpower and photo management. Using such technology allows Sellen to demonstrate its commitment to performance while also simplifying the daily reporting process. Additionally, Raken’s reporting technology ensures that Sellen has thorough, time-stamped, and complete construction documentation should any legal disputes arise.
“My role is to streamline the daily reporting process with accurate entries across our portfolio of projects,” said Tyler Stewart, technology solutions and training manager at Sellen Construction. “This has allowed us to easily access data, keeping our field workers on site instead of in the legal office.”
Raken serves a dual purpose by allowing Sellen to capture the jobsite data necessary to continually improve its processes while also maintaining daily reporting compliance, providing a critical layer of legal protection.
“Raken helps our field workers complete thorough, legally compliant daily reports faster than any other tool,” said Stewart, noting that Raken’s focus on making reporting fast and easy for field personnel has led to a dramatic increase in compliance. “It increases exposure and contact with subcontractors,” Stewart said, “which in turn helps Sellen be more efficient and build stronger relationships.”
By adopting time-saving technologies that make it easier to gather information from the field, Sellen and Raken are working together to change the construction landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
“One of the reasons we started Raken was to ease the pressure of creating, collecting and storing accurate contract documents,” says Kyle Slager, CEO of Raken. “We’re excited to work with Sellen to make sure their documents are created quickly and stored securely so they have the proof they need of the great work they do.”
