MyTaskit announced Tuesday 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.
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. 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.”
