Walmart is testing automation to handle tasks that are repeatable, predictable and manual, like scanning shelves for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels.
Technology helps Walmart save time
Whether it’s at work or at home, things like a smartphone or a car’s voice-activation software free up valuable minutes of your day.
That’s exactly the idea behind something new Walmart is testing in a small number of our stores: using automation to handle tasks that are repeatable, predictable and manual, like scanning shelves for out-of-stock items, incorrect prices, and wrong or missing labels (see the video above).
This new shelf-scanning technology frees up time for Walmart associates to focus on what they tell Walmart are the most important and exciting parts of working at Walmart – serving customers and selling merchandise.
Walmart has tested this technology in a small number of stores in Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and California.
And based on these initial tests, they're expanding it to an additional 50 locations.
As with all things Walmart rolls out to their stores, the feedback from associates and customers will guide them in how and where they use this technology in the future.
This combination of people and technology is helping make Walmart stores more convenient and easier to shop, ensuring that products are available when our customers want them.
It’s just another example of how Walmart is using technology to save their associates and customers time.www.shipwatchers.com - 24/7 Support including Chat
