Announcing: Accurate Laser Measurements with Spike

Capture measurements – from just a photo.

ProntoForms can now be integrated with Spike, a smart laser measurement tool that captures measurements just by taking a photo. Results are embedded into your ProntoForms estimates, work orders or any other form.

Using ProntoForms with Spike:

  • gives easy, accurate measurements of hard-to-measure surfaces.
  • reduces manual labour, requiring less staff to get the job done.
  • reduces risk by allowing field users to stay on the ground - no heights or ladders needed.

This is a limited-release feature for ProntoForms for iOS 7.1: if you want to use this feature, please contact your ProntoForms account manager.

ProntoForms + Spike

Field workers making estimates can take easy, accurate measurements using ProntoForms and the Spike device and app. No need for ladders or tape measures: send the completed form and measurements to the office or to customers with the touch of a button.
