Our customers will find that they can streamline their estimating process with Spike, which inevitably saves on labor costs. - Sean Schultz, General Manager of Reece Supply Company
Broomfield, CO (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
ikeGPS (NZX:IKE) is pleased to introduce Reece Supply Company as its first U.S. sign industry reseller partner of Spike.
With Spike, sign makers 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, which saves sign companies time and cuts overhead costs on a traditionally lengthy process.
Sign makers can also save measurements on Spike and send dimensions via email to customers or designers to create proofs, assess installation and complete permit applications. If additional measurements are needed, sign makers 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.
“As a Spike reseller, we can offer our customers a solution that will quickly improve how they conduct business today,” says Sean Schultz, general manager of Reece Supply Company in Harahan, Louisiana. “Our customers will find that they can streamline their estimating process with Spike, which inevitably saves on labor costs.”
For more than 75 years, Reece Supply Company has offered sign shops many of the biggest brands in the industry, including 3M, Arlon, Epson America, GE, Gerber Scientific Products, Mimaki, SA International, Sloan LED and Ultraflex Systems. Reece Supply Company operates eight locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Georgia and North Carolina. Each location houses a large inventory of sign, screen and digital products, and local seminars are available to train and educate signage professionals on new products and techniques.
“We’re excited to partner with such a well-respected company in the signage industry,” says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS. “For decades, Reece Supply Company has provided sign makers with the industry’s most innovative solutions. Reece is once again demonstrating its leadership by introducing Spike to its customers in an effort to help them reduce expenses and run more efficiently.”
For live Spike demos, Reece Supply Company will showcase this measurement solution at the Texas Sign Association Annual Conference in Montgomery, Texas, June 9-13, and the Mid South Sign Association Meeting and Trade Show in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, July 23-25.
