Business Insider reported that Walmart is introducing a new app meant to make it easier for in-store shoppers to place orders online. If shoppers can't find what they're looking for in one of Walmart's stores, employees with the app installed on their in-store touchscreen devices can offer to help the shopper place an order for any item shipped and sold by Walmart online. Customers can choose to have items sent to their home or the store for free pickup. The new app allows for the payment of online sales in cash, which has been something of a holy grail for retailers like Walmart with a large base of low-income consumers. Retail Directions is very proud to set the benchmark in omni-channel retailing, we introduced similar "Endless Aisle" technology for our clients back in 2012.
