Austin, Texas October 18, 2022 – mdf commerce, a leader in SaaS commerce technology solutions today announced a collaboration with Walmart to deliver an integrated shopping solution to the State of Arkansas. State and local government buyers throughout Arkansas can easily purchase from walmart.com directly within ARBuy, the state’s e-procurement system built on technology from Periscope, by mdf commerce.
Once an account is set up, buyers can search for goods and services offered on state contracts and now, also through walmart.com. The integration with Walmart is seamless, allowing buyers to add items to their cart and check out – all within the ARBuy system. The solution makes it more efficient for Arkansas buyers to shop state contracts and open market catalogs on walmart.com, while also ensuring compliance by tracking spend for even greater transparency and visibility.
