Anixter and CommScope, Inc. are partners in a new mobile application specifically designed to address the enterprise needs of network integrators and contractors.

The new, free app – called “cAnixter” – provides a mobile platform for the browsing, selecting and quoting of CommScope’s products. It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, and it builds on Anixter’s and CommScope’s history of collaboration to deliver increased value to the two companies’ shared global customers, the two say.

Designed for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, the app allows users to:

>> Access information and specifications for more than 25,000 CommScope products, including Andrew, Broadband, Carrier, SYSTIMAX and Uniprise Solutions;
>> View related products and technologies;
>> View products by status: new, to be discontinued and discontinued;
>> Create bills of materials;
>> Request product quotes;
>> Send e-mail links to product specs; and
>> Stay current with information via blogs, press releases and videos from both CommScope and Anixter.

The real-time app also allows customers to navigate through the entire collection of products by both Anixter and CommScope part numbers.

"The proliferation of connected devices and changing market dynamics presents new opportunities for how we engage with our customers," says Fiona Nolan, senior vice president/Global Marketing at CommScope. "This new app is an exciting development that leverages these opportunities. The cAnixter app provides customers with the ability to be able to get critical product and installation information whenever and wherever."
