Walmart Inc. of Bentonville has announced a deal with cloud-based software company Salesforce Inc. to offer its fulfillment services to other retailers.
The agreement makes Walmart's Store Assist app and Walmart GoLocal local delivery services available through Salesforce AppExchange. It gives retailers access to the same scalable technologies that Walmart uses to optimize in-store fulfillment by increasing picking accuracy, speed and efficiency.
"Retailers are looking for ways to improve cost efficiency while meeting their customers’ needs, no matter where or how they choose to shop," Harsit Patel, vice president and general manager of Walmart GoLocal, said in a news release. "Fulfillment from stores is an effective way to achieve these goals and serve customers quickly and reliably through local delivery."
Walmart GoLocal launched in 2021. The partnership with Salesforce builds on Walmart's strategy to diversify its revenue streams and profit pools.
