Why Walmart are revolutionising their sourcing strategy

Walmart and Bamboo Rose are developing a new enterprise sourcing platform (ESP) that will change how they do business with thousands of suppliers

The cutting-edge technology will bring together disparate systems, improving efficiencies and helping the company stay true to its mission of everyday low cost.  Through the new ESP, Walmart Sourcing associates around the globe will more easily collaborate with buyers, product development teams and suppliers improving the way the company procures and imports goods for resale. 

Single sourcing platform 

The single sourcing platform creates greater visibility across teams enabling Walmart associates to make more informed purchasing decisions on volume and cost, improving access of goods to other markets and potentially reducing waste in categories such as perishable goods and other sensitive product lines.

The implementation of the ESP solution will streamline the supply chain, eliminating waste in categories such as perishable goods and opening doors for products to be sold in connected markets.

Saving money for customers

"At Walmart, we're constantly looking for ways to improve our business so we can help our customers save money and live better. I'm thrilled to be able to work with Bamboo Rose to develop a brand-new ecosystem connecting our global teams with a single platform, empowering us to go beyond simply streamlining information. With this technology, we'll be able to engage with suppliers across multiple growth stages, expand global offerings and make more efficient decisions," said Daniel Berg, Vice President of Product Global Sourcing at Walmart.

"We believe retailers succeed when they collaborate internally and across supplier networks to provide openness and opportunities for collective growth. At Bamboo Rose, we deeply understand the challenges faced by our customers and we craft solutions that drive positive business outcomes for global retailers. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to innovation and delivering exceptional value," said Mike Mattei, Chief Revenue Officer at Bamboo Rose.
