ikeGPS Limited (NZX:IKE) the maker of remote measurement hardware and software solutions, has launched its online retail shop at http://www.ikegps.com and announces general commercial availability for Spike, the world’s first laser accurate Smartphone measurement solution. The Spike device, Spike mobile app, and user’s Smartphone work together to change the way measurements are taken and shared.
Spike is modernizing measurements by using a Smartphone or Tablet’s camera, GPS, compass, and Internet connection in combination with Spike’s built-in laser rangefinder and Bluetooth. From a Spike photo, users can capture real time measurements including height, width, area, length, and target location. Spike works with both Apple iOS and Google Android devices, and the app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
“Before Spike, professionals had to go on site equipped with a myriad of tools such as tape measures, ladders, and then jot down measurements on a piece of paper,” said ikeGPS CEO Glenn Milnes. “In instances where professionals can’t access a site or the size of the object is too vast, taking measurements can be a lengthy or difficult process. Many businesses and professionals can benefit from using Spike, so we’re excited to announce the general availability of Spike and our online retail shop.”
Businesses and professionals across many industries, including Residential & Commercial Construction, Insurance, Real Estate, Asset & Facility Management, Architecture, and Advertising now have access to a powerful remote measurement solution that enables them to quickly and easily capture and record measurements on site or back at the office.
The Spike e-commerce site currently supports the US, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and most European countries. Additional countries are planned to be supported in the near future. To mark the launch, ikeGPS is offering an introductory price of $619 USD per Spike device. Users can experience Spike for free by downloading the Spike app and using demo mode (demo mode does not provide accurate measurements without the Spike device).
