ikeGPS Adds Montroy as New Spike Distributor

Reselling Agreement Brings Spike to Mountain States Region, California

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwired - November 11, 2015) - ikeGPS (NZX: IKE) announces that it has added Montroy Sign and Graphics Products as its latest distribution partner of Spike, a smart laser measurement solution for signage site surveys and estimations.

Signal Hill, California-based Montroy operates 11 locations across Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Utah and carries more than 12,000 products from top manufacturers in the industry, such as 3M, Avery, HP, Mimaki, GE and SloanLED.

"Given that Montroy is the leading sign supply distributor in California and the Western states, this new reseller relationship strengthens Spike distribution in the region," says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS.

By using Spike, sign and digital graphics professionals can 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.

"With Spike, our customers can easily cut the time they spend conducting site surveys in half, which means they can turn around more estimates and win more jobs," says Jim Wilson, president of Montroy. "Ultimately, Spike helps our customers become more competitive in the market."

For more information about Spike, Montroy customers should contact their local rep or the sales office at sales@montroy.com or 1-800-666-8769, extension 1.
