Meet Ben Brown, founder of Taskbox – the revolutionary new task management app. We’ve known him a few years in which time he’s bought quite a few cars from us – and now he’s helping us to sell even more…
Ben is a technology guru, and as soon as he explained what Taskbox could do and how it could help us here at Redline, we were interested. Managing a car sale from purchase right through to delivery to the end customer can be challenging – try doing that over 150 times every month with all the countless variables that are part and parcel of the motor industry, and you’ll find out pretty quickly that you need to be organised.
Ben believed that the complex nature of the car sales process was a perfect test for Taskbox and six months after we started to use it, it has proved to be invaluable.
Anway – enough about Taskbox and more about Ben!

First thing you’ll do when we get out of lockdown? Go on holiday with the family. It’s been 4 years since our last holiday due to the time it’s taken to get Taskbox off the ground.
How did you find out about Redline? I previously bought from Porsche, BMW, **Redacted** 😂, but had really bad experiences. I’ve been shopping with Redline for the past 5 years and haven’t looked anywhere else.
What inspired you to start Taskbox? Since I can remember, I have always loved solving problems. Over 10 years of running a few different companies I got pretty good at building and implementing workflow solutions. I noticed bad team collaboration is one of the fastest-growing problems within many different industries workflows. I knew I could help to solve the problem, so I created Taskbox.
