Employees Get Corporate App With Smart Phones

Walmart has developed a corporate app for it U.S. employees called Me@Walmart. Developed in-house by Walmart Global Tech, the app is designed to simplify daily tasks, serve customers, and plan for life outside of work. It started as a way to manage associates’ schedules and has grown into a single in-store app for associates. Associates will only be able to access the app’s work features while they’re on the clock, but they can also use the smartphone as their own personal device, with many features and privacy. Walmart will not have access to any personal data, just like with its longstanding BYOD (bring your own device) program that encouraged employees to use their own personal device at work.
