ikeGPS announces its latest reseller agreement with DTTEC in a deal that introduces Spike, a laser measurement solution, to the sign and digital graphics market in Mexico.
As one of the major suppliers in the area, DTTEC operates seven locations throughout Mexico and supports approximately 800 clients, which includes sign shops, government agencies and universities. DTTEC carries a large selection of products for some of the industry’s biggest brands, such as Bordeaux Digital PrinkInk, Caldera, Graphtec and HP Inc. In addition, DTTEC manufactures Suprint, the company’s own line of sign and digital graphics products.
“Our new reseller deal with DTTEC marks Spike’s first availability in Mexico, and we’re fortunate to have such a valuable partner in DTTEC to kick-off Spike’s expanded distribution,” says Jeff Ross, senior vice president of new market development at ikeGPS. “DTTEC is a leading supplier in the Mexican sign and digital graphics market, and we look forward to bringing a solution that can help sign shops in Mexico work faster and better control their operating costs.”
Spike allows sign and digital graphics professionals to quickly capture measurements for estimates of the width, height and area of signage locations from a smartphone or tablet picture and the Spike device. A ladder, bucket truck and tape measure are no longer required to create estimates, saving sign companies time and overhead costs on a traditionally lengthy process.
The measurements of the sign or graphic location are saved with the Spike photo and can be shared with customers, designers or production team to create job estimates and design proofs, assess installation and complete permit applications. If additional measurements are needed, users can refer to their saved Spike photos at any time to make modifications using the Spike mobile app or Spike Cloud. There’s no need to return to the site for further measurements or estimations. Additionally, Spike offers language support for Spanish.
“We’re dedicated to helping our customers succeed by bringing them the industry’s most advanced products,” says Sebastian Saidman, general director of DTTEC. “We’ve seen Spike’s success in the U.S. sign market firsthand at the European Sign Expo and ISA International Sign Expo, and we look forward to our customers realizing these same benefits as experienced by sign shops in the U.S.”
DTTEC will launch Spike at FESPA Mexico, which brings more than 9,000 attendees. Spike will be available for a live demo with DTTEC and ikeGPS representatives in booth D30 Aug. 18-20. For more information on Spike, visit spike.ikegps.com/sign-graphics/.
DTTEC was established in June 2006 by a group of successful entrepreneurs in graphic arts market who initially provided service to the digital textile industry and then digital printing in the graphic arts.
Currently, DTTEC’s main business partners are HP in the large-format market, and Bordeaux in compatible inks. DTTEC has also developed a brand of supplies under the name SUPRINT® as a complete solution of compatible brand ink. These brands are synonymous with quality and reliability, allowing DTTEC to cover a large number of options to meet the needs of DTTEC’s customers.
