Quick Start

Implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365 is complex. ERP and CRM deployments deeply affect organizations and require significant changes from employees. And they aren't cheap —  so the stakes are high.

For a successful implementation, you need structured project management, full transparency, and buy-in from users at every level of the organization. We created Sunrise 365® Quick Start to streamline Dynamics 365 projects, by combining methodology, best practices, and quantifiable progress metrics into a single solution. You can get to go-live faster, and experience your company's digital transformation sooner.

Ensure Quality and Industry Best Practices

Why start your business transformation from scratch when your Dynamics 365 implementation can start from a base of proven industry best practices?

  • Rich content library includes process flow diagrams, pre-recorded task guides, deployment checklists and more
  • Ensure proper configuration of order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, production, warehouse, and other common retail, manufacturing, and distribution procedures
  • Reduce heavy customizations by following best practices

Simplify System Setup

We can help you save time at the start of your Dynamics 365 implementation. Since all projects start with the same routine instance setup work, we standardized common tasks—which reduces consulting service time and cost.

  • Simplify the entire process of system setup, resulting in fewer normalized files
  • Start with an instance ready for solution design with pre-configured, load-and-go datasets
  • Reduce setup, migration, testing, and validation time with mappings and intelligent instance copying

Measure Project Health and Go Live Readiness

Embedded Power BI dashboards give everyone a task-oriented, real time, fact-based view of the project. This quantitative view means you'll always know where the project stands relative to the work remaining, the budget, and the original goals.

  • Spot bottlenecks quickly to proactively manage the project and guide the team to success
  • Monitor project health and make sure everything is on schedule
  • See actual vs. planned budget to keep project costs in control
  • Assess go-live readiness and adapt as needed
  • Improve communications and manage realistic expectations (with fewer surprises)

Effectively Manage Change for Better Outcomes

Our approach is designed to break down the fears of change and give users hands-on experience with the software, early and often, in their Dynamics 365 implementation.

  • Industry best practices serve as the basis for any change
  • Change is modeled using customer data from day one
  • End users experience early, gradual change with a sprint-driven approach
  • Project teams follow comprehensive end user training plans, capped by thorough, structured CRPs
