Marine software platform MyTaskit rolled out the Phase II Customer Development Site program, with seven companies joining in the last 90 days.

Companies recently signed on for the Phase II Development Site program are: American Custom Yachts and Whiticar Boat Works, both based in Stuart, Fla.; MacDougalls’ Cape Cod Marine Service in Falmouth, Mass.; Portland Yacht Services in Portland, Maine; Raven Marine in North Saanich, B.C.; Seattle Boat Co., in Seattle; and Lake Powell Marine in Page, Ariz.

“We are excited to be a Phase II Development Site with MyTaskit because we believe that technology can help drive new efficiencies in our business,” American Custom Yachts general manager Dominick LaCombe Jr. said in a statement. “My vision is to move away from the stacks of paper that currently slow down most businesses. MyTaskit is working with us to understand our needs and collaborating with us on the best solutions for American Custom Yachts and the industry.”

“Since its inception, the functionality of the coordination module for MyTaskit Pro has been customer driven,” MyTaskit founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said. “In the past we engaged early adopters and advisory boards to define initial desired use and our Phase II Development Sites continues this tradition: It will give us real-world experiences with using the Coordination module to enhance a specific use case for better service technician coordination. These are concrete ways our customers are saving time and money every day by enabling better communication and coordination of tasks using MyTaskit Pro.”
