We learned a ton from our time running decision engineering at Grubhub, but the thing that stuck out the most was that building optimization models was not intuitive, simple, or fast.
Today, we're super excited to announce the launch of Nextmv Cloud and API - an even faster (and free!) way to test our prebuilt decision models. Over time, Nextmv Cloud will be the place to test all of the latest and greatest decision science components from our Nextmv brain trust. 👩🔬👨🔬️🧠
Nextmv Cloud uses our Hop-timization technology under the covers, which lets you build models the same way you build other software - with simple, interpretable computer code.
First up for Nextmv Cloud? Our Fleet Router model, which produces routes for a fleet of vehicles servicing a list of requests that minimize the total distance or time traveled for all vehicles. Whether you are routing Santa's elves to source toy parts or just trying to orchestrate your meal delivery business, the Fleet model makes your operations more efficient. 💰

Nextmv Cloud lets you run our Fleet Router without having to talk to anyone at nextmv. If you want to customize either the model logic or data structures, you can upgrade to the enterprise version of Hop and be off and running. Click the upgrade button (or email us at email@example.com) and we'll help you get started. The enterprise version of Hop is fully customizable, can optimize any business specification, and does a lot more than routing.
Nextmv Cloud will be our home for all things optimization & simulation. We're starting with our routing solver. Stay tuned for the many improvements and additions. I hear inventory management is hard these days.
We can't wait to hear what you think, so don't hesitate to reach out and provide us with your thoughts or suggestions.
Happy Hopping (and Holidays)!
It’s important to create opportunities to connect when building a distributed company. Retreats are one way to do that, even if they’re virtual. Here’s an in-depth look at our exact agenda for our first virtual retreat at Nextmv and what we learned in the process.
We’ve released Hop v0.7.1! This release introduces a new assigner framework for Hop to make it easier for customers to add custom business logic to assignment problems within our fleet engine.
You have two vehicles and ten locations to visit. What's the best way to route your fleet? You have seconds to solve and Nextmv Cloud. Ready, set, go!
Transporting raw milk from farms to processing plants is a daily occurrence that seems simple at first glance. But it gets complex quickly when time is of the essence and milk volumes vary.
We've released Hop v0.7.0! This release introduces a cool new feature we call expanders into Hop to help customers manage time to first feasible solution and memory use as they scale their models.
Building decision models into binaries is a beautiful thing. It eliminates a lot of sticky deployment processes and gets you to production faster.
We're thrilled to have FirstMark Capital lead our Series A round, putting even more momentum behind our vision to bring the power of decision science to every developer.

Launching Nextmv Cloud
Our quarantined world is even more on-demand than it used to be. We order groceries, gadgets and green goddess salad, and they all show up at our doors within minutes.
