Wal-Mart to Enhance Online Photo Service With HP's Snapfish and Fujifilm

BENTONVILLE, Ark., March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Wal-Mart today announced that its industry-leading online photo service will be enhanced this fall through a new relationship with HP's Snapfish and Fujifilm. HP's Snapfish will now provide the online sharing and storing experience for Wal-Mart customers, while Fujifilm will continue to provide the services that link Web ordering to in-store fulfillment throughout the Wal-Mart and SAM'S CLUB photo network.

The updated online service, set to launch in Fall 2006, will provide Wal- Mart customers with a greatly enhanced, easy and affordable way to upload, share, store and get high-quality prints from their digital photos. Prints will continue to be available for home delivery through the mail or in-store pick-up at more than 3,500 Wal-Mart locations, with over 3000 locations in as little as one hour. In addition, consumers will be offered a wider array of photo-related products and services -- more than 90 unique photo products -- including calendars, mugs, mouse pads and teddy bears.

"We are very excited about the future growth of online digital photo services," said Sharon Wibben, Vice President of Photo and Connection Centers at Wal-Mart. "The addition of HP's Snapfish capabilities will give our customers access to the latest photo website innovations, while providing more choices and solutions. As the company that supported Wal-Mart's move to digital in 2000, Fujifilm has provided great technology to support our online and in-store solutions. The combined expertise of both HP's Snapfish and Fujifilm will provide an even greater photo experience to Wal-Mart customers in both channels."

"We are extremely pleased that Wal-Mart has made the decision to utilize the value and innovation HP's Snapfish has been able to provide to both consumers and partners in the online photography space," said Ben Nelson, vice president and general manager, Snapfish, HP. "We look forward to soon being able to extend that value to Wal-Mart customers."

In 2004, Wal-Mart worked with Fujifilm to create the industry's first one- hour online photo service that allows same day pick-up in more than 3,500 Wal- Mart and SAM'S CLUB locations nationwide. Fujifilm will continue to provide the complete end-to-end solution, including the customer website experience, for online printing to the labs for SAM'S CLUB, as well as the online delivery services for in-store fulfillment at Wal-Mart.

"Wal-Mart and Fujifilm's partnership benefits from our successes together in the online and in-store space," said Gael Lundeen, Vice President and General Manager for the Photofinishing and Web Services Division at Fujifilm. "We are looking forward to the innovations we're planning for the fall launch."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
