    Session 3

    Walmart Omni-Commerce:  Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast.  How to be Quick but Not Rush Walmart Optimization

    As Walmart drives its own internal digital transformation, suppliers are forced to switch tactics at a greater recency and frequency than ever before. Building and executing against a bold, clear, concise Walmart growth strategy as Walmart gets its own house in order is not for the faint of heart.

    Walmart is keenly focused on supplier execution at every connection point within the business. So when does your team speed up and when does your team slow down?

    Suppliers, we’ll share a host of powerful observations we’ve been collecting as ‘the geeks who got your back’ in this town.

    In this session you will learn:

    • How your colleagues and peers are currently resourcing against their Walmart objectives (… and where winning teams are placing bets today)
    • Scorecards your colleagues and peers are executing today vs. what they were executing yesterday (… and why they decided to change course)
    • How Walmart merchants are being retrained from a data perspective (… and how these adjustments tap suppliers’ strengths)

    Boosting Conversion Through Relevant Visual Experience on Walmart’s Digital Shelf

    The average human scrolls through 300 feet – or one Statue of Liberty’s worth of content every single day. They’re exposed to thousands of images and advertisements that shape their internal bias and impact whether or not they will view, click, and buy. But in this digital-centric world where 95% of consumers make their purchase decision based on the images a brand shows of its products, how do you know which visuals will capture attention and drive a response from your target audience?

    In this session you will learn:

    • The impact that images and designs have on purchasing decisions
    • Image trends from the top-searched snack products on Walmart
    • How a leading meat brand is growing sales by optimizing their Walmart imagery using AI and predictive image analytics
