Hardware giants help drive overseas growth for ikeGPS

4 December 2015

ikeGPS (NZX: IKE) ikeGPS is pleased to advise that the STANLEY® Smart Measure Pro, a Stanley-branded smartphone measurement solution designed and delivered by ikeGPS is now available in-store at Lowe’s, the home improvement retailer with approximately 1,850 stores across North America.

“We are delighted to roll out this product at scale in partnership with Stanley Black & Decker, a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest brands and distributers in the global construction and DIY markets,” says ikeGPS CEO Glenn Milnes.

“We are equally pleased that the initial retail channel for the launch is Lowe’s, the leading chain of stores operated by Lowe's Companies Inc., a Fortune 50 company operating home improvement stores across the U.S. and Canada.

"Initial reaction to the product has been very positive and we now have orders for the European market, where the product will be sold through other high profile big-box retailers in the current financial year.”

The STANLEY® Smart Measure Pro solution is based entirely on ikeGPS intellectual property—ikeGPS manufactures and delivers the hardware units, ikeGPS develops the Apple iOS and Google Android smartphone apps, and ikeGPS hosts the cloud-based software and subscription product.
