Signarama names ikeGPS as a preferred vendor in a new partnership that brings its franchisees Spike, a laser measurement solution that quickly measures a signage location by capturing the width, height and area from a Smartphone or Tablet photo.
In its nearly 30-year history, Signarama has focused on advancing the sign industry and providing a better sign-buying experience for its customers. Signarama backs this commitment by offering its franchisees access to the top vendors and suppliers that carry the most innovative products, such as Spike.
“Spike is great for the sign industry as a whole,” says Harry Skeen, supplier and development manager of Signarama. “This device arms our franchisees with the latest measuring technology in the industry, so they can turn jobs around faster and stay ahead of their competition. Spike helps our franchisees manage labor costs and run their shops more smoothly, which keeps our customers happy.”
Several Signarama franchisees have already incorporated Spike into their measuring process, and it hasn’t taken long to realize results. In the case of Bryan Clayman, owner of a Signarama franchise in Walpole, Massachusetts, he’s had his Spike for only a couple of months and has already seen his investment pay off.
“I discovered Spike at the 2015 ISA Sign Expo,” Clayman says. “It’s an amazing tool, and I use it every day – no more climbing ladders or counting bricks. In fact, I don’t even bother putting a ladder in my truck anymore when I go out to do surveys and estimates. I can take all the measurements I need right from the ground. All the information (photo and measurements) is stored right in the Spike app. The ROI on purchasing Spike is amazing. In fact, it’s worth more than what I paid for it.”
ikeGPS will be exhibiting Spike at Signarama’s UFG World Expo June 14-17 in Las Vegas. Visit booth 624 to see Spike in action.
