Dallas, TX (September 29, 2009) –DAVACO, Inc. (www.davacoinc.com), the national leading provider of retail services, introduces ClearThread?, the company?s proprietary technology package designed to give clients greater visibility into the execution and management of high-volume programs, including rollouts, resets, retrofits and remodels. ClearThread offers clients additional insight to updates being made in their stores via a customized portal which provides specialized reporting capabilities and data collection from the field via handheld devices. The company has been providing this value-added service to support national retail and restaurant clients, and will continue to do so under the new name. The ClearThread name represents the transparency that is provided to clients on programs at the store level and the threading or collection of data that is available from each store location.

“DAVACO's commitment to technology and continuing improvements reinforces our philosophy of customer service, innovation and leadership in the retail services industry," said Rick Davis, DAVACO CEO. "We set high standards for all of our work and it?s nice to showcase those efforts and deliver them to our clients? desktops. The ClearThread technology package is a complement to our service and since it?s proprietary to DAVACO we are able to continually enhance the functionality to better serve our retail and restaurant clients.”

Clients can easily track project progress, view digital photographs, check compliance of merchandise and/or fixtures and graphics, review inventory status, obtain survey data, post announcements, review discussion boards, secure project sign-offs and any other information that would be needed at the store level.

“We are excited to have a powerful solution that helps national brands validate work done in their stores. Through ClearThread, our clients are able to quickly know how their programs are doing. If there are any issues, they can be pro-actively resolved in unison with execution," said Davis. "Between our retail professionals located across the country and the technology that makes them more productive, DAVACO offers the solutions to help retailers execute high-volume programs with ease and added assurance.”
