DAVACO Partners with Retail Clients for ADA and Safety Programs
Nationwide, Integrated Service Offering Helps Retailers with Special Projects

Dallas, Texas (September 30, 2008) – DAVACO, Inc., the national leading provider of retail services, announced today that the company’s team of retail professionals is currently partnering with retailers to execute a variety of special projects, like ADA compliance and safety remediation across their fleet of stores. DAVACO, which specializes in the execution of change at the retail level, offers an integrated approach to implement special projects with efficiency and speed-to-market.

“ADA compliance and safety remediation are two unique situations that require a practical resolution in a very timely manner,” said Rick Davis, CEO, DAVACO, Inc. “DAVACO’s over 700 W-2 employees have the qualifications and the accountability to quickly and effectively assess the stores’ needs and implement changes, as appropriate. In addition, DAVACO’s proprietary support technology allows our teams to send real-time verifications, including signatures and photography, to further simplify the program and validate completion.”

From initial in-store survey to overseeing completion of work to ADA specifications, DAVACO’s team facilitates the process of ADA compliance, including executing the final fixture and accessibility improvements. “Whether through court-ordered mandates or a proactive approach, DAVACO’s team can handle all aspects of compliance, with minimum disruption to the retail store or its customers and maximum attention to time and cost efficiencies,” said Davis. The company can survey each store, coordinate with ADA consultants, and develop an execution plan that works within existing conditions, whenever possible. These services include: restrooms, fitting rooms, counters and checkouts, accessibility routes (interior/exterior), public seating, parking and passenger loading, entrances and exits, ramps and signage.

DAVACO’s team is also equipped to manage safety remediation programs on a national level. “This occurs when a retailer determines that there may be a safety issue in its stores that has the potential to create a dangerous or risky circumstance,” said Davis. “When the welfare of customers or employees is at stake, retailers do not want to waste any time in rectifying the hazard.” DAVACO’s team of nationwide employees can reach thousands of stores in a short timeframe to assess, repair/reset, and verify compliance of the safety concern. The company can utilize its client portals, advanced reporting and task management system to provide retailers with updates, photos, sign-offs and other documentation of completion. In addition, the company can remerchandise or provide any other needed service during the store visit.
