MyTaskit Surpasses 5,000-Consumer Milestone

Consumer Adoption Spiked 66% from Last July

 West Palm Beach, Fla. – March 15, 2016MyTaskit, now the largest software provider in the marine industry for vessel management and connecting service professionals to their technicians and customers, today announced it has exceeded more than 5,000 registered consumers. Hundreds of service professionals servicing more than 35,000 consumers from across the country are utilizing MyTaskit to coordinate service both internally and with their clients. MyTaskit unveiled the news at a user meeting as the Palm Beach International Boat Show was getting underway in West Palm Beach, Fla. March 17-20.

MyTaskit is a free web app for boat owners and industry enthusiasts accessible via any desktop or mobile device that allows owners to better manage their boat and high-value possessions and communicate with service technicians about maintenance and repairs. In addition, within the MyTaskit Pro Coordination module for service professionals, which is available as a free or subscription service with enhanced features, service businesses can coordinate all repair/maintenance tasks with technicians and customers.

The number of MyTaskit consumer users is up 66 percent from last July. And while the consumers using MyTaskit are concentrated in the company’s initial regional launch areas of the Northeast and Southeast regions, there are also increasingly represented from regions including mid-Atlantic; California; the Great Lakes and the Pacific Northwest, where it launched late last year.

New England sailor Mark Lenci says he relies on MyTaskit to keep his 53-foot sailboat cruising all summer. In fact, before he discovered MyTaskit he says he had to use a cumbersome spreadsheet to monitor 152 pieces of equipment on his boat, from engines and batteries to a water heater, bilge pump and satellite communication system. With MyTaskit, he can keep repair and maintenance records in one central place, which not only facilitates ongoing work projects, but he also believes will help enhance the boat’s resale value. “A prospective buyer could buy his boat and know its complete maintenance history,” Lenci says, “and that’s something the car dealerships have been doing for awhile. The boating industry has been years behind everybody else with service coordination technology. It’s about time.”

“Every day more consumers are realizing how MyTaskit can simplify their lives. Boat owners have been the first to embrace MyTaskit, using it to better manage their vessels, line up service on their boats and keep track of required maintenance, ” said Kevin Hutchinson, founder and CEO of MyTaskit. “People are wondering how they ever survived without it. We’re thrilled to see marine service pros promoting and adding their own clients to MyTaskit. This has been a major factor in spring boarding us to the largest software provider for boat owners and service pros.”

MyTaskit Teams Up with Dometic to Offer Digital Operating Manuals & Automated Service Reminders

West Palm Beach, Fla. – March 3, 2016MyTaskit, a leading provider of SaaS-based solutions for connecting service professionals to their technicians and customers, announced that it has teamed up with Dometic to offer its valued clients the latest digital operating manuals as well as automated service reminders. Dometic is a customer-driven, world-leading provider of leisure products for the recreational vehicle (RV), automotive, truck, lodging and marine markets.

Working with Dometic, MyTaskit will help ensure that all the digital operating manuals pertaining to Dometic equipment, based on make and model, will be kept up-to-date in real-time in the MyTaskit database. As part of the implementation currently underway, MyTaskit service reminders for Dometic products, including icemakers, water purification and HVAC equipment and refrigerators, can also be scheduled to go out automatically using the latest manufacturer recommendations.

By teaming with Dometic, MyTaskit is providing its customers and their service techs with the most current equipment information, as well as archived information for older models, to make boat repairs faster, easier and more efficient.

“Product information changes constantly, and with real-time synchronized databases, we’re ensuring that the information to care for all the Dometic equipment on our customers’ boats can be accessed fast and easily through MyTaskit,” says Kevin Hutchinson, Founder, CEO of MyTaskit. “With pre-set service reminders for Dometic equipment, consumers don’t have to remember a dozen different maintenance schedules. And service techs will automatically know what needs to be replaced when, taking the guesswork out of their jobs, and giving them more time to focus on revenue-generating activities.”

MyTaskit is a free web app for boat owners accessible via any desktop or mobile device that allows owners to better manage their high-value possessions and communicate with service technicians about maintenance and repairs. Within the MyTaskit Pro Coordination module, which is available as a free or subscription service with enhanced features, service businesses can coordinate all repair/maintenance tasks with technicians and customers. Likewise, if consumers have a maintenance issue, they can “Taskit” or assign it to a service tech, uploading photos, videos or messages related to a work assignment, and then easily coordinate with the Pro user on the tasks.
