West Palm Beach’s MyTaskit triples users, reaches milestone

The MyTaskit software platform used by marine service businesses recently announced that their commercial version, MyTaskit Pro topped 1,000 users, three times what it was a year ago. On the other hand, the consumer application, now has more than 50,000 registered boat owners, a 700 percent increase. The software helps coordinate work orders between technicians and managers, and records labor hours with their integrated DockMaster application.

According to a recent study done by the West Palm Beach based company, those using the task coordination software reported an ROI 15 times its cost within the first month alone. You can learn more about their findings here 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.”

 

The significant growth is in part due to last year’s launch in the Great Lakes region. In Q4, SkipperBud’s, Gage Marine and Walstrom Marine signed up as clients. Suntex Marinas also named the software company it’s vendor of choice, using the MyTaskit Pro for boat management and service work coordination. More recently, in Q1 2017 Prime Marina Group signed up to use the software at multiple property locations.
