MyTaskit Makes Commercial Marine Debut at Workboat Show

West Palm Beach, October 18, 2017 – MyTaskit Pro, the leading software platform for service task coordination, is the comprehensive solution boatyards and repair businesses need to work and communicate smarter and more efficiently. A staple in the recreational boat market with over 1,000 service pro users and 50,000 registered boat owners, the company is making its commercial marine debut at the International WorkBoat Show, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, New Orleans, booth 220.

Show attendees have the opportunity to learn first-hand how MyTaskit Pro will optimize a service and repair business, so owners can get organized and get more done, faster. Jeffrey Poole, MyTaskit northeast VP, will present the supplier solution “Get Control: Optimizing Your Marine Service & Repair Business” at WorkBoat on Nov. 29 at 11:00 am in the Presentation Theater, Hall B.

MyTaskit will also unveil a major enhancement to its software. Users now have the ability to send emails and text messages through the software. This means that a tech in the field has only to glance at his or her phone or tablet to see instructions or updates—even if the device is locked and notifications are turned on.

MyTaskit Pro is a subscription-based task management solution. It simplifies communication and collaboration. With it, service work is coordinated between staff, subcontractors and customers. Because it’s paperless, it’s far more accurate that traditional methods.

The platform is easy to use and runs on mobile devices. Customers request service and are kept up to date on project status through the app or web interface. Labor hours, comments, parts and materials used are added by techs in the field. Supervisors monitor work status in real-time. MyTaskit Pro integrates seamlessly with QuickBooks, so once a task is complete, an invoice is generated and automatically emailed to the customer, and the ledger is updated.

MyTaskit Pro Enhanced With QuickBooks Integration

West Palm Beach, Fla. – August 23rd, 2017 – MyTaskit, developer of MyTaskit Pro, the leading service team coordination software platform, announces that its cornerstone application now integrates with Intuit QuickBooks and QuickBooks Online. The company is incrementally releasing a series of enhanced features.

The first phase of the total solution is the ability to share MyTaskit Pro timesheet data into QuickBooks, without the need for third-party time tracking tools. The additional talk-to-text feature alleviates the need to manually enter technician notes—no more transcribing or cutting-and-pasting job details. The completely paperless process reduces administrative paper trails, and accounting data entry burdens placed on service managers and office staff.

Once transferred, billable hours logged by technicians and related parts used in a service project are available for immediate invoice generation. Because a bill can be created and sent as soon as the job is complete, it decreases the time it takes to get paid for work performed.

The integration provides for easy billing adaptability. If, for example, a job estimated at 3 hours took the technician 3.5 to complete, the service manager can easily edit the invoice to reflect the difference without affecting the payroll of the employee. Additionally, larger boatyards will appreciate the ability to define date ranges.

“My technicians love it because it avoids the back-and-forth to confirm work completed,” said Sara Gallaspy, Pull Marine Services office manager. “I love it because it avoids old fashioned paper tickets. Once techs download their task notes, I click two buttons to open my customer’s file to generate an invoice. It makes my life so much easier.”

Phase two will enable users to move customer data out of QuickBooks into MyTaskit Pro. Phase three will deliver complete two-way, real-time integration. The timeline for these are 2017Q3 and 2017Q4, respectively. Additional information is at http://info.mytaskit.com/quickbooks.

Intuit QuickBooks and QuickBooks Online are the leading accounting software packages for small- and mid-sized companies. The company reports 2.2M online subscribers worldwide.

MyTaskit Pro Software Breaks 1,000 User Milestone

West Palm Beach, Fla. – June 6th, 2017 – MyTaskit, the leading software platform for service work coordination, recently surpassed two major milestones. The commercial version MyTaskit Pro topped 1,000 service pro users, triple what it was a year ago. The consumer side of the application, MyTaskit, now has over 50,000 registered boat owners who manage their vessels and service work online—a 700% increase.

Aside from continual software enhancements, several factors contributed to this success. In Q4 2016, MyTaskit launched in the Great Lakes region, garnering exposure within this untapped market with SkipperBud’s, Gage Marine and Walstrom Marine signing up. They utilize the system to coordinate work between technicians and managers, and to record labor hours using mobile phones integrated to DockMaster.

Also in that period, Suntex Marinas named the software company its vendor of choice to use MyTaskit Pro for boat management and service work coordination. In Q1 2017, Prime Marina Group signed up for the tool to be used at multiple property locations.

In the past two years, MyTaskit has seen a rapid rise in adoption by marine service businesses. Those using the software have realized noteworthy returns on their investment. A recent study reported an ROI 15 times its cost within the first month alone. The findings are at www.mytaskit.com/ROI.

“Our team really gets excited to hear back from our customers who report increased revenue, streamlined task processes, and satisfied employees and boat owners,” said Kevin Hutchinson, CEO and founder of MyTaskit. “We’re very pleased with our achievements so far and look forward to continued growth in this industry.”
