Toronto, Ontario, December 29, 2021 – Danavation Technologies Corp. (CSE:DVN, OTCQB:DVNCF) (“Danavation” or the “Company“), a Canadian-based Internet of Things (IoT) technology company and provider of micro e-paper displays, is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Unoretail, a marketing and distribution provider of networking and Point-of-Sale systems to retailers in Mexico, to install Danavation’s Digital Smart LabelsTM within a location for Impulsora, Mexico’s largest distributor of electrical and lighting equipment. Once this initial installation is complete, which is expected by the end of February 2022, the partnership anticipates rolling out full-store installations to another 12 Impulsora locations.
With a mission to innovate Point-of-Sale transactions through visual solutions, Unoretail’s offering aligns seamlessly with Danavation’s Digital Smart LabelsTM technology. Unoretail offers its clients proven expertise across retail design and store layout, and provides furniture, displays, signage and other visual accessories designed to enhance the overall shopping experience. Unoretail has expertise in the design of creative solutions for numerous segments and has successfully transformed convenience stores, supermarkets, department stores, pharmacies, other specialty stores, as well as hotels, bars and restaurants. The addition of our Digital Smart LabelsTM into Unoretail’s portfolio can help further elevate their clients’ customer experience while eliminating tedious manual price changes for staff.
A small pilot installation was completed within an initial Impulsora location, and included full integration with their enterprise resource planning system. This next phase is targeting a full-store installation featuring thousands of additional labels being implemented, after which Danavation expects to undertake a full, 12-location roll-out of Digital Smart LabelsTM into a different Impulsora store every other month.
“Partnering with Unoretail to supply Impulsora, and the broader Mexico market, with our Digital Smart LabelsTM demonstrates the continued execution of our strategy and our ability to help clients around the world overcome the challenges of inaccurate pricing, inefficient label changes and manual processes,” said John Ricci, CEO of Danavation. “We are very excited that Unoretail will be showcasing our technology to Impulsora and its customers, as well as having the opportunity to potentially outfit and help automate an expected 12 of their locations across Mexico.”
Impulsora began operations in 1954, offering products of low and high voltage electrical equipment and material from the most recognized brands in the electrical and hardware industry, such as 3M, PHILIPS, WD-40, and BURNDY. They have a large and fast-moving inventory with more than 100,000 square metres of warehouse space located throughout Mexico. With 510 employees, Impulsora reported US$129.3 million in sales in 2019.
