ikeGPS Announces Spike Software Integration With Prontoforms

Joint Solution Improves Mobile Workforce Productivity Across Numerous Industries

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - ikeGPS (NZX: IKE) announces that its smart laser measurement solution, Spike, is now integrated with cloud-based mobile forms software from ProntoForms (TSX VENTURE: PFM), the leading provider of mobile data collection and analytics platforms for enterprises and small- to medium-size businesses.

ProntoForms users can now attach a Spike device to their iOS smartphone or tablet to easily capture area and linear measurements and have the data automatically embed into their mobile forms and take advantage of all the output and connectivity capabilities that the ProntoForms solution offers. This makes it easy for remote workers to quickly complete and submit detailed customer estimates, work orders and property inspection reports directly from the field.

Users can collect as many measurements as required and add other necessary information, such as estimated costs and customer signatures. Completed forms, including all photos and measurements, can be submitted in real time to customers as PDFs and back-office systems with just the touch of a button.

"ProntoForms has thousands of end users who measure something every day, typically by using a traditional tape measure and ladder," says Jeff Ross, senior vice president of new market development at ikeGPS. "This new integration will enable ProntoForms customers to dramatically reduce the time it takes to measure homes, office buildings, structures and other objects."

"The integration between ProntoForms and Spike from ikeGPS demonstrates early success of our new partner and integration strategy with a market leader," says Mansell Nelson, senior vice president of business development at ProntoForms. "We're the recognized leader in the North American mobile forms market, which has an estimated 42 million subscribers, and believe that our partnership strategy, alongside our direct and channels sales, will help accelerate our market share growth through connected and embedded solutions."

ProntoForms serves more than 55,000 subscribers and 3,500 customers in a wide range of industries. Additionally, ProntoForms has strategic partnerships with some of the mobility industry's leading brands, including Apple, Google, AT&T, HP, Samsung and Unilever.
