BENTONVILLE, Ark., April 19,
2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ARC (Asset Recharge
Center), a division of ChargeItSpot, and Sam's Club, a
division of Walmart Inc. and a leading membership warehouse club,
today are announcing a national, chain-wide roll out of enterprise
mobile device management locker technology through their
ARC and Sam's Club team up to safeguard the
retailer's investment in workplace mobile technology
ARC's smart lockers minimize the cost, wasted time and lost
productivity surrounding the many thousands of handheld devices
that associates use to do their jobs. ARC provides a
centralized, tech-enabled management system to keep company-owned
handheld devices charged, protected, and fully
"As we continue to provide an incredible experience for our
members, that starts with equipping our associates with the right
technology," said Chad Donath,
SVP of Operations for Sam's Club. "We are excited to partner
with ARC on this technology that we feel is a key part of our
device strategy and ensures all associates can quickly and easily
access a device."
Lost, broken or low-functioning devices have become a huge pain
point across retail and other industries. Without access to
functioning and charged devices, production from club teams can be
hindered, and not allow associates to appropriately and efficiently
take care of their members.
With this in mind, ARC has developed and rolled out an
automated, self-service smart locker system for handheld devices
that reduces device loss, increases productivity, all while
enhancing the end user's experience.
ARC's mobile device management lockers, which will roll out to
all Sam's Club locations starting later this year, provide
one-to-one device accountability and proprietary charging
technology in each locker. ARC's setup is configured to allow for
quick scan-in and scan-out of devices, and its issue-reporting
technology ensures swift mobile device maintenance and repair.
"Our associates are already telling us these lockers allow
them to stop worrying about lost or damaged devices and gives them
more time to focus on taking care of our members," said Donath.
"All of our clubs and our club associates will benefit from this
technology. It's just easier."
The ARC mobile device management technology also helps drive
efficiencies and financial returns. In Sam's Club locations where
ARC is already deployed, teams report a large decrease in annual
device loss and it helps save associates time, in every club, every
"ARC is absolutely delighted to partner with a deeply
respected and much-loved brand like Sam's Club. They set the bar
for operational excellence in retail, and we're thrilled that ARC
will be integrated at scale with their device strategy to help
maximize club efficiency," said Douglas Baldasare, Founder and CEO of ARC.
"This partnership is a clear message that retailers no longer
have to struggle with their enterprise mobile devices. Sam's Club
associates can now focus on continuing to deliver the absolute best
