Service coordination and task management platform MyTaskit announced the release of the MyTaskit Pro 8.1 operations module.

Service coordination and task management platform MyTaskit announced the release of the MyTaskit Pro 8.1 operations module.

The new release is integrated with Worldpay’s online payment gateway, which will meet the EMV and chip-and-pin requirements that are to become the industry standard. Customers using the new module can use all major credit and debit cards.

“With the 8.1 operations module, our customers will be well-prepared to face the new card industry rules and offer boat owners safe and secure payment options,” MyTaskit senior product specialist Jack M. Stutts said in a statement. “Having the latest-technology billing systems is no longer a luxury — if marinas and boatyards want to protect themselves against fraudulent billing and grow their businesses, it’s essential.”

MyTaskit Pro merges two software systems — The Boat Village Pro and DockMaster — into one online service coordination tool. The operations module (formerly DockMaster) is designed to help marinas and boatyards manage profit centers and back-office operations.

The new release works with chip-embedded credit cards, which offer more security than magnetic strip cards.
