The businesses, which specialize in boat and yacht repairs, marina services and boat sales across the United States and Canada, will use the solution for online task coordination with their customers and to automate and optimize operational tasks.

Separately, five MyTaskit Pro users are converting to the MyTaskit Pro Cloud solution.

The 11 new clients collectively do business with more than 5,000 boat owners and will be able to use MyTaskit Pro to communicate directly with those customers online, according to the company.

MyTaskit enables the consumer and services worlds to efficiently and proactively initiate, track and transact business online through collaborative task sharing,” MyTaskit founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement.

“Boating businesses have embraced MyTaskit because it is the only online tool in the marketplace that can help them effectively communicate with customers online and also handle all the internal operational tasks necessary to operate their businesses. When customers have a service issue, they can simply ‘Taskit’ to their service pros. Service managers can also ‘Taskit’ to field technicians or even subcontractors for complete coordination of service.”
