Grady-White Boats – Warehouse Installations (North Carolina)
One of the most respected boat building companies in the world, Grady-White Boats has a legendary reputation for designing and producing outstanding fiberglass boats. Since 1959, Grady-White boats have been built in Greenville, NC. And since purchasing the company in 1968, owner and CEO Eddie Smith steadily has done what he does best: inspire his crew to work hard to provide customers the best quality, reliability, safety, performance, and long lasting value. In large part Grady-White’s success is due to developing close relationships with its customers and dealerships, asking questions of and carefully listening to boat owners, and incorporating features they’ve requested, to create fun products that make many happy memories. Grady-White was ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Coastal Fishing Boats, Eight Times in a Row,” and has received this designation each time that J.D. Power and Associates conducted studies in the marine industry.
Danavation® is pleased to confirm installation of our Digital Smart Labels™ system in their North Carolina warehousing location. This is expected to be completed between the first and second quarter of 2024.

Macadoodles® – Third location installation (Omaha, Nebraska)
Each independently-owned Macadoodles® location is stocked with over 4,000 different labels of fine wine and features a vast selection of liquor and beer. With significant inventory to manage, track and price accurately, Macadoodles® found an ideal solution in Danavation’s® Digital Smart Labels™. Having supported other sizable beverage alcohol retailers, Danavation’s® Digital Smart Labels™ offer an ideal solution to automate, streamline and enhance the efficiencies of Macadoodles’ in-store operations. In addition, Danavation’s® solution helps to improve margins by enhancing staff efficiency and reducing financial and reputational costs associated with inaccurate shelf pricing. Partnered with Danavation®, Macadoodles® stands to be better positioned to continue ensuring that every plan and every detail is right for the customer.
Following two successful installations of our Digital Smart Labels™, Macadoodles (franchise) recognized the benefits and return on investment of Danavation’s® solution, which ultimately drove the decision to add a third store location under the banner to go digital. Installation will be completed in the second quarter of 2024.
