New York (CNN Business)Walmart is turning to new tech to reduce costs and convince shoppers to keep taking trips to the store.
This week, Walmart (WMT
) announced it would bring robotic floor scrubbers to 360 stores by the end of the year. It also touted a new app, Dotcom Store
, that allows associates to order products for customers on Walmart.com when they’re out of stock on the shelves.
Both innovations tie into Walmart’s plan to build what CEO Doug McMillon has called “tech-empowered stores.”
