ikeGPS announces that Spike, a laser measurement solution, received the New Product of the Year award at the annual Alliance Franchise Brands Sign & Graphics Division Convention in Jacksonville, Florida.
Prior to voting, Alliance Franchise Brands staff members narrowed down each award to five finalists. Franchisee members then used the Alliance Franchise Brands convention app to vote for the winners of each award, which recognizes vendor excellence in a variety of categories.
“Our franchisee members recognize any product that offers time savings as a huge plus,” says Steve Hoyle, director of franchise services for Alliance Franchise Brands Sign & Graphics Division. “Spike is an invaluable tool that helps our franchisee members conduct more surveys in a day and better manage their time. Along with the time savings Spike offers, it’s also more accurate than getting on a ladder and trying to capture measurements from that angle.”
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. 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. There’s no need to return to the site for further measurements or estimations.
“We’re proud to offer a product that has helped so many sign shops work more efficiently and save on their bottom line,” says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS. “The fact that our franchisees selected Spike for this honor means a lot to us as a company and shows how impactful Spike has been to the sign and digital graphics industry.”
