DAVACO Offers Value and Efficiences to Retail Clients for Outsourced Programs
Clients Benefit from Unique Business Model for High-Volume Execution at the Store Level

Dallas, TX (Aug 5, 2008) –DAVACO, Inc. announced today that the company continues to offer its retail clients a solution for outsourcing high-volume programs at the store level, a service that the company has been executing for nearly two decades. DAVACO, which began in 1990, has been a pioneer for the retail services industry, evolving over the years to meet the dynamic needs and specialized challenges of its retail clients—a list that today includes many well-known, national retail brands. Even as local service providers have entered the retail services marketplace, DAVACO continues to be the optimal choice for the implementation of national retail programs. The company’s retail-specific expertise and technology advances can support large-scale programs and provide efficiencies and value which can be difficult to obtain from local/regional providers.

“It’s our commitment to hiring quality employees that have proven retail expertise—from installation of store fixtures to the management of fortune 500 retail companies—that distinguishes us from other companies,” said Rick Davis, CEO, DAVACO. “As a service company, our strength comes from our employees and their unique ability to understand the challenges that our clients face at the store level, while anticipating and responding to special requests, accommodating store personnel and retail customers, and providing the best solutions should unforeseen issues arise.”

DAVACO specializes in the execution of high-volume programs in an open-store environment, during regular store operating hours with minimal disruption to the customers.  Utilizing its over 700 W-2 employees located across the country, the company is able to execute programs in a retailers store fleet and provide quality work and consistency.  According to Davis, DAVACO’s implementation process includes extensive training, successful execution of test stores and the assignment of a dedicated field team that is selected based on experience with similar programs and industry requirements. “Assigning the right person to the project allows us to assure quality execution and brand consistency from location to location.  DAVACO can be the single point-of-contact for retail store needs, thus reducing the burden of training and managing multiple vendors. This is a much simpler, smarter way to do business.”

DAVACO is, by design, structured to be most efficient and cost-effective resource for retailers who are implementing programs across their entire fleet of stores. “Our clients aren’t going to realize significant savings or efficiencies for a single store program,” said Davis. “However, for a program involving multiple locations across the country, DAVACO brings greater value, consistency, speed-to-market and efficiencies.” Plus, Davis adds that the company’s nationwide employee base is scalable to meet its clients’ project requirements at any given time. “Our clients benefit from our flexibility to scale up or down to meet their short- and long-term goals. This eliminates the need for our clients to hire freelance/contract labor or temporarily ramp-up help to support their internal teams.”

In addition, DAVACO supports all of its programs with a proprietary technology component. DAVACO’s technology package is a value-added service that utilizes mobile technology, customized portals and specialized reporting.  Using technology as a management tool gives DAVACO’s field team a way to be more efficient executing programs and project reporting, while providing clients greater visibility into the status of their in-store programs. Clients may access store information throughout the course of the program via an online, secure portal that offers 24-hour access to documents, store photography, survey data, task management tools and downloadable reports, as well as real-time status alerts for the most up-to-date changes and progress.
