Walmart: Going Beyond Company Disclosures

Walmart has rounded out its fiscal year with a strong set of numbers that show it has taken supply chain disruption, rising costs, heavy inflation, and various other problems in its stride. There is comfortable growth on both the top and bottom lines, which is extremely respectable given tough prior year comparatives. Walmart hiring is slowing down as compared to hiring in the months of April and March in 2022. Walmart posted close to 40,000 vacancies in March and 30,000 in April, which has gone below 10,000 in June 2022. Walmart Company Filings has most of the mentions related to the ESG and COVID-19 themes in 2021. ESG has more than 300 mentions in the company’s 2021 filings which indicates the rising focus on ESG-related issues.

The Air Click contactless touch technology will be retrofitted by Neonode’s value-added reseller, Japan Aerospace.

The solution will be installed along the top of the self-checkout kiosk display at the unnamed company’s stores.

Air Click removes the need to modify the existing equipment while enabling contactless interaction with the kiosk.

As of 16 April, the solution has been installed at 32 stores in Japan, and will be introduced to additional locations.

Neonode CEO Urban Forssell said: “Neonode’s contactless touch technology is transitioning from customer validation to commercial deployment in multiple market segments, such as self-checkout kiosks in retail, ordering terminals at quick-service restaurants, and elevators.

“Our technology is simplifying and enhancing the customer experience while making the interaction with the underlying device or system safer and more hygienic.

“Our vision is to transform the way people around the world interact with kiosks, elevators and other multi-user machines in public environments through our contactless touch technology. This project with Japan Aerospace is one step towards realising that vision.”

Neonode provides advanced optical sensing solutions for contactless touch, touch, gesture control and in-cabin monitoring.

In October, Japan Aerospace and Neonode signed a value-added reseller agreement.

Under the agreement, Japan Aerospace agreed to develop contactless self-service kiosks with Neonode’s touch sensor modules for Japanese customers.

Earlier this month, the company announced that it will supply touch sensor modules to its value-added reseller, Finetek.

Finetek had been selected by a major elevator original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in South Korea to install its contactless elevator control panel solutions, which are powered by Neonode’s technology, in elevators.

The company said that the products had been approved and were ready for full-scale release.
