Danavation Technologies Enters New Vertical for Digital Smart Labels(TM) with Warehousing and Logistics Integration at Chef Cook it

Published

on

  • New vertical expands overall market opportunity and sets Danavation apart from competitors whose offerings are limited to retail applications
  • Rigorous requirements for warehouse deployment are exceeded by the ideal durability and range of Digital Smart Labels™ and associated Platform-as-a-Service technology
  • Initial installation already operational at client’s Quebec warehouse; additional Digital Smart Labels™ are on order to undertake a second phase roll out in the facility

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 22, 2022) – 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 excited to confirm its entry into the warehousing and logistics segment with the successful implementation of our Digital Smart Labels™ into a warehouse for Montreal-based Chef Cook it (“Cook it”), a pioneer in Canadian home delivery meal kits. Entering this new vertical represents an expanded market opportunity for the Company and demonstrates the broad reaching utility of Danavation’s Digital Smart Labels™ and Platform-as-a-Service (“PaaS”) technology. The implementation at the Cook it warehouse was fully integrated in early June and has resulted in excellent customer feedback along with pending orders for additional Digital Smart Labels™ to undertake a second phase roll-out at the facility.

Within the Cook it warehouse application, Digital Smart Labels™ are affixed to bins and updated in real-time at each stage of meal assembly through the production line. Given a warehouse environment poses greater risk for physical impact or damage to labels due to the extensive hands-on nature of the production line, the potential for interference from other systems, and the speed with which updates are required, Cook it chose Danavation’s Digital Smart Labels™ for their strong durability, range of communication and exceptional software. Entering this new vertical affords Danavation exposure to an expanded set of market opportunities for its Digital Smart Labels™, which have proven utility across numerous different applications and settings.

“The team at Danavation is extremely proud to be working with Cook it to help optimize the logistics chain within their warehouse and production lines, offering enhanced efficiency and accuracy at each step of production, while further contributing to ongoing ESG efforts by reducing dependency on paper labels,” said John Ricci, CEO of Danavation. “Our well-engineered and extremely sturdy Digital Smart Labels™ are ideal for use in a high-impact, fast-paced environment like the Cook it production line, which truly set us apart from the competition who remain singularly focused on retail applications.”

Cook it was created in 2014 by three friends with a big dream to reduce food waste and relieve the mental load associated with meal planning. Cook it was Canada’s first ready-to-cook meal company, and the first to come up with an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional meal kit. Cook it is committed to supporting local farmers with at least 50% of each meal kit regionally sourced. Today, Cook it is part of the country’s 300 biggest employers and is a true pioneer in the Canadian ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat industries.

The Minister for Finance, Michael McGrath, is inviting Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified candidates to be considered as Ireland’s Director of the London-based European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The remunerated position of Director is an important post with a demanding workload. A full-time residential position, it is based at Bank headquarters in London.

The Minister’s nominee is expected to be appointed by the EBRD, with the agreement of Ireland’s Constituency partner countries, for a three-year term from 1 August 2024.

Minister McGrath commented:

“This is an exciting opportunity to represent Ireland (and our Constituency partners Denmark, Lithuania and Kosovo) as a Director on the Board of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development overseeing the policy-making and governance of the Bank. The EBRD is a unique International Financial Institution supporting projects across three continents. By investing in projects which otherwise would not be fully met by the market, the EBRD promotes entrepreneurship and fosters transition towards open and sustainable market economies. I am keen to ensure our Irish representative has the ability, education, vision, and experience to make a significant contribution to the Board and brings a range of skills and diverse perspective to the deliberations of the Board.

My nominee will need high competence in economic and financial matters. Expertise can come from notable or significant achievements in the corporate or financial sector, academia, policy-focused institutions, or public service. Importantly, they will have the highest ethical standards, a strong sense of professionalism and commitment, and dedication to serving the interests of all the shareholders and be able to make themself readily available to the Board in the fulfilment of their duties.”

Expressions of interest will be accepted up to 3pm on 27th March 2024

Council adopts regulation on instant payments

Published

on

council-adopts-regulation-on-instant-payments

 

The Council adopted today a regulation that will make instant payments fully available in euro to consumers and businesses in the EU and in EEA countries.

The new rules will improve the strategic autonomy of the European economic and financial sector as they will help reduce any excessive reliance on third-country financial institutions and infrastructures. Improving the possibilities to mobilize cash-flows will bring benefits for citizens and companies and allow for innovative added value services.

The instant payments regulation will allow people to transfer money within ten seconds at any time of the day, including outside business hours, not only within the same country but also to another EU member state. The regulation takes into consideration particularities of non-euro area entities.

Payment service providers such as banks, which provide standard credit transfers in euro, will be required to offer the service of sending and receiving instant payments in euro. The charges that apply (if any) must not be higher than the charges that apply for standard credit transfers.

The new rules will come into force after a transition period that will be faster in the euro area and longer in the non-euro area, that needs more time to adjust.

The regulation grants access for payment and e-money institutions (PIEMIs) to payment systems, by changing the settlement finality Directive (SFD). As a result, these entities will be covered by the obligation to offer the service of sending and receiving instant credit transfers, after a transitional period. The regulation includes appropriate safeguards to ensure that the access of PIEMIs to payment systems doesn’t carry additional risk to the system.

Under the new rules, instant payment providers will need to verify that the beneficiary’s IBAN and name match in order to alert the payer to possible mistakes or fraud before a transaction is made. This requirement will apply to regular transfers too.

The regulation includes a review clause with a requirement for the Commission to present a report containing an evaluation of the development of credit charges.

Background

This initiative comes in the context of the completion of the capital markets union. The capital markets union is the EU’s initiative to create a truly single market for capital across the EU. It aims to get investment and savings flowing across all member states for the benefit of citizens, businesses, and investors.

On 26 October 2022 the Commission put forward a proposal on instant payments that amends and modernises the single euro payments area (SEPA) regulation of 2012 on standard credit transfers in euro by adding to it specific provisions for instant credit transfers in euro.

FCA highlights need for enhanced competition in wholesale data markets

Published

fca-highlights-need-for-enhanced-competition-in-wholesale-data-markets

 

The FCA has unveiled the outcomes of its in-depth study into the wholesale data market, focusing on the sectors of credit ratings data, benchmarks, and market data vendor services.

Despite deciding against major regulatory actions due to the risk of unintended consequences that could affect the data’s availability and quality—a crucial resource for global investors—the FCA has pinpointed several areas where competition could be significantly improved.

The study’s revelations indicate that the current state of competition in these markets may lead to users incurring higher costs for data than would be the case in a more competitive environment. This concern is particularly pressing given the critical role that such data plays in supporting effective investment decisions across the financial sector.

In a move to address these findings, the FCA has proposed initiatives aimed at ensuring wholesale data is distributed under fair, reasonable, and transparent conditions. This approach forms a part of the regulator’s broader strategy to ‘repeal and replace’ assimilated EU law, reinforcing the UK’s status as a premier global financial hub fostering investment, innovation, and sustainable growth.

Sheldon Mills, the FCA’s Executive Director of Consumers and Competition, emphasised the importance of quality and accessible wholesale data for the efficiency of financial markets. “The quality and availability of wholesale data is integral to well-functioning wholesale financial markets,” Mills stated. He further clarified, “Our market study found that firms can access the data they need to make effective investment decisions. We do not believe the case has been made for significant interventions. However, we will examine ways to help support wholesale data being provided on fair, reasonable and transparent terms.”

In its commitment to fostering a competitive and fair marketplace, the FCA will continue to scrutinize allegations of anti-competitive behavior across all markets, including wholesale data markets, leveraging its powers under the Competition Act to address any such issues.
