Walmart will soon begin offering several of its own technologies and capabilities to other businesses and brands. The retail behemoth also entered a strategic partnership with Adobe to integrate Walmart’s Marketplace, online and in-store fulfillment and pickup technologies with Adobe Commerce, a commerce solution for merchants and brands.
“We’ve built new capabilities to serve the evolving needs of our own customers, and we have a unique opportunity to use our experience to help other businesses do the same,” said Walmart's U.S. chief executive John Furner. “Commercializing our technologies and capabilities helps us sustainably reinvest back into our customer value proposition.”
Through the Adobe Commerce platform, retail businesses will be able to use Walmart’s cloud-based services to offer seamless pickup and delivery to their customers. Businesses will be able to reach new customers on Walmart’s fast-growing Marketplace where they can leverage Walmart’s Fulfillment Services to offer 2-day shipping nationwide.
The partnership with Adobe to offer these capabilities is intended to help businesses of all sizes improve their customer experiences while operating more efficiently.
“The core mission of helping people save money and live better is at the heart of every idea including Scan & Go and checkout technologies, AI-powered smart substitutions and pickup and delivery,” said Suresh Kumar, chief technology officer and chief development officer of Walmart Inc.
“Combining Adobe’s strength in powering commerce experiences with our unmatched omni-customer expertise," Kumar aded, "we can accelerate other companies’ digital transformations.”
