Walmart and SES-imagotag
Expand Strategic Relationship
Across the U.S.
SES-imagotag, (Euronext: SESL, FR0010282822) the global leader in digital solutions for physical retail, today announced that they will expand their strategic relationship with Walmart to digitize the shelf-edge. This expansion comes as the result of the successful implementation of their pilot store in the Arkansas region.
The pilot successfully implemented key technological advances to optimize associate productivity and customer experience and will now be expanded to a much larger set of locations across the country.
Walmart will utilize the full VUSION OS platform and VUSION IoT Cloud platform, allowing them to scale to hundreds of millions of cloud-connected IoT devices. They will also implement SES-imagotag IoT Radio Protocol, allowing them to seamlessly integrate with existing Wi-Fi unlocking a simple and fast roll-out while also delivering the highest standards in IoT security.
“As we continue to innovate, it is important that we develop strategic relationships to make sure we are staying out in front of the latest technology. With SES imagotag's digital solutions, we will be able to offer best-in-class technology to improve our customer experience. We are encouraged by what we've seen so far in this pilot and we're excited to bring the next evolution of digital shelf display to more stores in 2022. – John Crecelius, Senior Vice President, Merchant Transformation, Next Generation and Last Mile Delivery Product, Walmart U.S.
SES-imagotag has also put sustainability at the core of its corporate and product strategy with the recent launch of the VUSIONe program, in alignment with the objectives of Walmart's sustainability program Gigaton. VUSIONe encompasses 30 years of experience in IOT and sets the highest sustainability standards within the ESL industry. Walmart will immediately benefit from the optimized energy management solutions, increased usage of recyclable material, reduced packaging and leaner supply chain & logistics proposed by SES-imagotag and its partners.
Philippe Bottine, CEO North America at SES-imagotag concluded: “We are truly honored to be partnering with such an amazing leader. Walmart's teams are permanently thinking outside the box, relentlessly putting the customer and associates at the forefront of everything they do, and they've helped us better serve our customers in many ways too. We are thankful to work with them and to be able to innovate towards a better and more sustainable retail.”
