Cetaris is pleased to announce that Walmart has successfully run its maintenance operation for over ten years using the Cetaris Enterprise Asset Management software solution with a sharp focus on the maintenance process. Starting small with a single discount store and the simple idea of selling more for less, Walmart has grown over the last fifty years into the largest retailer in the world. Through innovation Walmart helps people around the world save money and live better.
"Cetaris allows us to have a high level of visibility into our very large number of assets, providing us the data for each segment of our business to make informed decisions in order that we can continuously identify and close gaps in our maintenance operation – this in turn supports a high level of performance in our fleet operations. Cetaris has a solid process in place to hear the client that has stood the test of time, their technical support team know the Cetaris system inside and out, and they are quick to respond to questions with high quality responses. They have a very unique corporate culture where the President follows up personally on a very timely basis every day all day to the regular dialogue we have with customer support."
- Chris Carter, Sr Manager II, Fleet Purchasing and Engineering, Walmart
“We are proud that Walmart has been able to use Cetaris to continuously improve their maintenance operation for more than ten years – timely and accurate reports allow them to measure improvement and compare shops for performance, standard jobs allow them to drive consistency across the whole country, and their comprehensive implementation of the warranty module allows them to drive an ongoing return on investment. We designed Cetaris from day one to handle Walmart’s huge volume of assets and data while maintaining the ability to break out the pieces of data they need to be able to manage one segment of their business at a time – which is a big advantage. Cetaris' standard reporting and advanced reporting module gives Walmart the data they need to develop, measure, and follow up on their annual business improvement targets.”
