ikeGPS Signs GSG as New Spike Reselling Partner

New Distribution Agreement Increases Spike Availability to Southwestern, Midwestern U.S.

BROOMFIELD, CO--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - ikeGPS (NZX: IKE) announces that it has added GSG as a new reselling partner to increase distribution of Spike, a smart laser measurement solution for signage site surveys and estimations, to the Southwestern and Midwestern U.S. sign and digital graphics market.

“GSG has enthusiastically embraced Spike, and we’re excited to partner with such a respected distributor in the sign and graphics industry,” says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS. “Spike has been so well-received in the signage market, and this move will help more sign professionals get their hands on Spike.”

In its 62-year history, GSG has always focused on bringing the industry’s most innovative products to its customers. Some of GSG’s top manufacturers include 3M, Orafol, HP, Roland and Sloan LED. GSG operates six locations in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. In addition to those locations, GSG services Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and New Mexico.

“There’s no other solution like Spike in the market for the signage industry,” says Brandon Smith, director of marketing for GSG. “Spike allows our customers to dramatically reduce labor requirements and reduce the amount of time it takes to conduct site surveys, making for a more cost-efficient process.”

With 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.

For more information about Spike, GSG customers should contact their local sales rep or office at www.gogsg.com or 1-800-366-1776.
