COGNITIVE PLATFORM

Harness Information Overload

It’s impossible for sourcing and NPI teams to absorb the overwhelming amount of information available, let alone translate this data into actions that improve the business. LevaData acts as your cognitive advisor, applying AI to a range of data sources to serve up the most relevant recommendations, insights and predictions.

One of the things that LevaData is doing is changing the way we think about cognitive sourcing. Technology itself can't solve everything. It has to work with human beings in order to get the best results. LevaData has integrated these two components of the supply chain process: the human elements and the technology.
