Who We Are
New Horizon is a group of supply chain professionals dedicated to making supply chain planning easier.
Now more than ever, effective supply chain planning is critical to the efficient and sustainable movement of goods that power the world’s economy. We’ve seen many companies struggle with complex planning software and are committed to making software that is easier to implement, easier to manage, and easier to use.
Our global company is headquartered in Boston, with additional offices in Minneapolis and Dalian, China. We have customers in North America, Europe, and Asia.
What We Do
The New Horizon Suite plans and optimizes your end-to-end supply chain, with seven modules covering demand, supply, procurement, replenishment, inventory optimization, S&OP, and strategic planning.
While we emphasize simplicity of user experience and implementation, our software uses the most advanced AI and machine learning technology, including Facebook Prophet. Our technology automates planning so you can make better decisions without the need for a team of data scientists. Our approach provides more accurate plans, a more intuitive user experience, and quicker, less expensive implementations. The result is superior service levels, reduced inventory, faster time to value, and lower TCO.
We focus on what Gartner calls distribution-intensive industries — consumer products, wholesale distribution, foodservice, and retail. We believe that industry expertise is critical for developing effective supply chain software.
An idea born of experience with over 100 supply chain implementations.
New Horizon was founded in 2015 by Chao-Ming Ying (President and CTO) and Jeffrey Yu (VP of Delivery). The two worked together at Hitachi Consulting, where Chao-Ming headed the global Oracle Supply Chain Planning consulting practice. Previously, Chao-Ming earned a doctorate at Washington University in St. Louis and worked at i2 (acquired by JDA) and Demantra (acquired by Oracle). Before Hitachi, Jeffrey received a bachelor’s degree from Dalian University of Technology and worked at IBM. Together they have experience implementing supply chain solutions at over 100 companies all over the world.
They both saw firsthand how many companies struggle with complex and lengthy implementations. Planners wrestle with cumbersome user interfaces. IT departments face high implementation and support costs. Together Chao-Ming and Jeffrey developed a vision for creating a new generation of supply chain software that would make planning easier. Recent advances in AI, machine learning, and cloud computing provided a means for achieving this vision.
