As part of the distribution plans for its new employee app, US retail giant Walmart is providing around 740,000 of its employees with a free Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone. Employees may use the smartphone, which costs roughly $500, for both professional and personal purposes.

Me@Walmart is the name of Walmart’s new employee app. According to the corporation, the software would ease everyday duties, assist staff in providing exceptional customer service, and assist employees in planning activities outside of the workplace. Employees will be able to log in and out of their shifts using the app.
Furthermore, staff scheduling, Voice Assistant support, and other features dramatically improve staff performance and work completion speed.
However, there are fears that the new employee app may violate employee privacy. Walmart, on the other hand, has said that it does not have access to personal data on the phone, and employees are not permitted to use the app while not on scheduled duties. Walmart says it wants to provide its staff with the cutting-edge tools they need to stay competitive in the retail market.
Samsung’s flagship Galaxy XCover Pro is a rugged smartphone designed for field workers that will be available in the United States in April 2020. It’s jam-packed with features that distinguish it as a business-oriented smartphone.
The primary camera includes a barcode reader, and the device may be configured to function as a mobile Point of Sale terminal. Its greater security and dependability make it an ideal fit for the operations for which Walmart has deployed it.
By the end of the year, Walmart expects to have distributed the flagship phone models to 740,000 of its customers. With the implementation of the incentive of a durable personal smartphone for up to half of its present employees, it expects to see more exceptional employee performance.
