Our strength is in the information we manage.

At Horizon, we understand the many variables that impact your supply chain and make stability a challenge. Let us help manage those events and make absolutely sure you have the material needed to meet your needs and maintain production schedules. At Horizon Technology, we leverage our resources and many years of experience to achieve high levels of market liquidity. This data-driven approach allows us to help you better evaluate your options against ever-changing market conditions, increasing flexibility while stabilizing your supply chain.

Our Global Supply & Demand (GSD) Database

Horizon’s proprietary Global Supply & Demand database offers a 24/7 window into global supply and demand of the hard drive market. The database delivers real-time targeted cost reduction, proactive & reactive sourcing, unsurpassed transactional velocity, and valuable market intelligence.

The GSD Database enables our account managers to efficiently manage availabilities, requirements, and any other purchasing criteria our customers set. This flexibility and versatility displays Horizon Technology’s primary differentiators and shows Market Liquidity in action.
Horizon Technology provides only the most relevant information for you based on your purchasing criteria. We only give you information that is important to you and provides a cost benefit, shorter lead time, or improved inventory flow.
