SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 5, 2020--

LevaData, the company that delivers applied AI to transform strategic sourcing and procurement, has been chosen by CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, to support a new operating model, managing direct materials sourcing for its entire line of products worldwide.

CommScope is pushing the boundaries of technology to create the world’s most advanced wired and wireless networks.

LevaData will play a key role in supporting CommScope’s commitment to unify its supply chain, optimize its global manufacturing and distribution footprint, and better position the company to respond quickly to rapidly changing market conditions.
