MyTaskit, MRAA Team Up on Retail Education

New partnership includes webinar and blog post series on using mobile devices to drive productivity


Minneapolis —MyTaskit, a leading comprehensive software service for connecting service professionals to technicians and customers, has joined the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas as a Partner Member.

The new partnership includes an upcoming webinar and series of blog posts, which will be available exclusively to MRAA Retail Members. The first of these blog posts, which explores how mobile devices can drive increased productivity, was recently published on www.MRAA.com.

“The marine dealers who stay educated on the latest technologies have a leg up on the rest when it comes to building relationships with consumers, turning them into customers and retaining their business over the long haul,” MyTaskit Senior Vice President and General Manager Cam Collins said. “We’re proud to work with MRAA to provide this type of insight to their members.”

The educational resources set for release in 2016 will focus on specific ways MRAA members can capture mobile’s momentum and reap the benefits of the smartphone revolution, according to Collins, who has presented at the annual Marine Dealer Conference & Expo and is one of the marine industry’s recognized experts in mobile.

MyTaskit develops cutting-edge technology that allows boat dealerships, boatyards and service centers to coordinate tasks with their technicians and subcontractors. Furthermore, MyTaskit enables communication directly with customers — who can coordinate shop appointments, approve repair estimates, share photos and videos of work currently in progress and more. In addition, MyTaskit offers an integrated back office management application to generate billing, process work orders, order parts and automate accounting.

“We welcome the opportunity to partner with a company like MyTaskit that shares our passion for marine dealer education,” MRAA Vice President Liz Walz said. “Technology advances quickly these days, and having a place to turn to help navigate the world of mobile provides huge value to our members.”

MyTaskit joins a continually growing roster of boat manufacturers, vendors and suppliers that have chosen to support the dealer community through partnership with the MRAA. Find a full menu of partner benefits here.

Optimize the use of mobile devices in your dealership while avoiding common pitfalls

Smartphones are everywhere. Really? Unless you’ve been living in a cave or completely off the grid, this statement is not surprising. According to the Pew Research Center, over 64% of American adults own a smartphone and 45% own a tablet. We use our mobile devices to share photos and videos, to make voice and video calls, to play games, to read email, articles and books. We even use them to control the appliances in our home or office. The reality is that mobile devices have made their way into every aspect of our lives.Mobile-devices.jpg
