ikeGPS announces it has partnered with Innotech in a new reseller agreement that introduces Spike, a laser measurement solution, to the sign and digital graphics market in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland.
Spike first entered the sign and digital graphics market last year in the U.S. and quickly found success after signing preferred vendor relationships with the major sign franchises as well as reselling agreements with some of the industry’s largest regional distributors. While Spike is still new to the European market, this new partnership expands Spike’s availability on an international level.
“Our new partnership with Innotech will allow us to more quickly meet Spike’s growing demand within the U.K. and Ireland sign and graphics markets,” says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS. “Spike resonates with sign shops around the world, and we’re thrilled to replicate our U.S. success overseas.”
With more than seven decades of experience in the signage and digital graphics industry, Innotech is well-established in the U.K. and Republic of Ireland. Innotech carries a wide selection of large-format printing products, including roller banners, pop-ups, banner materials, vinyls and much more.
Spike allows sign and digital graphics professionals to quickly capture accurate measurements 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.
“Innotech prides itself in offering customers the most innovative products in the sign and digital graphics market, and we’re proud to continue that commitment with Spike,” says Gavin Dallow, business development specialist of Innotech. “There’s nothing else on the market like Spike that can help sign shops turn around estimations and quotes faster.”
Innotech will launch Spike distribution at the Sign & Digital U.K. exhibition, which attracts more than 6,800 attendees. Sign & Digital U.K. attendees can see Innotech at booth H52 for a live Spike demo April 19-21. To learn more about Spike, visit www.innotech-spike.com.
