With a comprehensive set of management and activity reports, Walmart will now be able to monitor each vendor/supplier/contractor’s insurance compliance status anytime on a 24 by 7 hour basis. The emphasis of the solution is on mitigating risk for Walmart while increasing overall processing efficiencies.
