Service coordination and boat management platform MyTaskit is expanding into the Pacific Northwest from the Seattle area in the United States to the Vancouver area, including Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

The Pacific Northwest represents the third major region where MyTaskit is dedicating resources to deploy its local service coordination platform.

The following customers have committed to be the anchor adopters in this region: CSR Marine and Seaview Boatyard Inc. in Seattle; Connolly and Francis, Granville Island Boat Yard, and Northshore Yachtworks in Greater Vancouver; and Raven Marine Services, Sidney, British Columbia.

The new customers collectively do business with more than 6,200 boat owners and will be able to use MyTaskit to communicate and coordinate service directly with those customers online.

MyTaskit, which rolled out to southern Florida and the Northeast earlier this year, announced its Pacific Northwest expansion plans at Payne’s Marine Group 30th Annual Trade Show in Victoria, British Columbia, which ended Monday.

“We’ve been looking for a way to stay connected with our customers and improve communication, and also coordinate better service with our fellow service organizations and subtenants,” Lori Jacinto, property manager at Granville Island Boatyard, said in a statement. “Once we found the MyTaskit Coordination app, we knew we had found the right tool.”

“Raven Marine is proud to be the first marine service provider to use the MyTaskit technology on Vancouver Island. We are constantly striving for improvement and innovation while catering to our customers’ needs and the maintenance requirements of the vessels. MyTaskit allows us to better serve customers today, and in the future. This advanced technology ensures customers and service providers alike will have full access to a vessel’s full upkeep history. There are no surprises, no missing data. It is all there at your fingertips,” Raven Marine general manager John Nassichuk said.

“The Pacific Northwest boating market is huge. Some say that Seattle has more pleasure boaters per capita than any city in the world. And there are close to a thousand marine businesses that service the entire region. We were very excited when several companies from the area asked if we would bring MyTaskit to their region. This is a perfect place to start our West Coast expansion,” MyTaskit founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said.
