Outdoor Research is dedicated to inspiring the journey ahead with award-winning technical apparel and accessories. Founded in Seattle in 1981, the company was built on the idea that life is an adventure, and the best gear makes it more fun. Outdoor Research is committed to improving its customer experience through innovative materials, purpose-driven features, and versatile products. Relying on the real-world testing of athlete ambassadors, mountain guides, and local adventurers, the company's core sports area include alpinism, rock and ice climbing, hiking, backpacking, paddling, trail running, and backcountry skiing and snowboarding.

Outdoor Research was looking for a solution to support its thriving eCommerce business and growing tactical division. The company also needed to stop sharing an SAP instance with its sister company, and find a solution that was configurable to their needs. They found an affordable, flexible, and secure end-to-end solution with Dynamics 365 and the wider Microsoft platform of cloud technology.

This company’s digital transformation includes:

  • Flexibility and business security with Dynamics Finance and Operations
  • Advanced allocation and supply chain features with Sunrise 365 industry extensions
  • Real-time, detailed reporting across the entire business with Power BI

Sunrise brings decades of experience in apparel manufacturing and retail to the relationship, as well as extensive platform knowledge as a global Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider.
