ikeGPS Announces Exclusive Reseller Agreement With Cansel in Canada

Bringing Spike to the Geospatial, Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Markets

ikeGPS announces a new distribution agreement with Cansel, who has been serving government, utilities, architecture, printing, engineering, construction, and surveying sectors since 1966. This agreement expands the availability of Spike by ikeGPS to Canada, furthering its North American presence into Geospatial, Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industries.

Cansel is the largest distributor of land-based positioning systems in Canada, with 23 locations across the country and over 400 employees. They focus on supporting their customers to measure, analyze, design, and build more efficiently and profitably. Their product lineup spans Autodesk® software to Trimble® equipment to GNSS receivers to 3D scanners. Some of the other product brands that Cansel represents include Laser Technology, Faro, Bluebeam, 3M, and FARO Technologies.

“We recognize Cansel’s expertise in geospatial and AEC markets, and in their knowledge of leading technologies that impact mobile field data collection. They are launching Spike in Canada at an opportune time, given our recent announcement of the integration between Esri’s Survey123 for ArcGIS and Spike,” says Glenn Milnes, CEO of ikeGPS. “As a trusted supplier in the geospatial and government sectors, they are poised to capitalize on this integration and to support their customers in improving field data collection processes.”

“We believe that bringing Spike to our geospatial and government customers will meet a need they have for complete end-to-end workflows while in the field on mobile devices,” says Martin Trudelle, Vice President for the Mapping & GIS Business at Cansel. “As an Esri partner, we are confident that we can quickly deploy Spike with Survey123 across Canada, and that it will be received with much success.”
