We don’t have a crystal ball to tell you the future of your business. But we can tell you that your shipment of crystal rhinestones is going to be late, plus which customers, channels, and orders are most in need of immediate attention—and which stores need replenishment.
That's the power of Sunrise 365® Supply Chain and Retail, a best practice solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365 based on nearly 30 years of implementations and analysis that augments planning, inventory, and logistic processes.
Supply Chains Are Our Sweet Spot
Sunrise Technologies started out in 1994 as a consulting firm that helped brands optimize their supply chains with technology — and we're still doing that today! Where other systems and implementation teams may see a complex supply chain as a significant hurdle, we recognize that complexity comes along with operating in a multi-product, multi-channel, global marketplace. And while Microsoft Dynamics 365 has amazing supply chain functionality out of the box, we've used our 20+ years of experience to take things to an entirely new level.
Do you know all the symptoms of a problematic supply chain? If so, are you just treating the symptoms, or really getting to the root of the problem? We'll show you how to spot all the signs and why they keep popping up.
If you're suffering from supply chain growing pains, don't get stuck with another system you'll just outgrow over the next few years. Move to the cloud and experience the constraint-free bliss of limitless, scalable growth.
Patagonia initially approached Sunrise with some core supply chain issues. After working with us and implementing Microsoft Dynamics, they were able to realize double digit growth in both profits and revenue.

Brands Don't Compete. Supply Chains Compete.

Alas, we don't live in a perfect world, which is why we created this exclusive solution. Dynamics 365 can already handle the global complexities of your industry like a pro, but when deployed with Sunrise 365®, you get the added bonus of advanced forecast netting, omni-channel inventory optimization, soft allocation, and embedded supply chain business intelligence. These tools let you spot issues in the supply chain early, so you can resolve them before they materialize.

Integrate Microsoft Dynamics 365 with the forecast tool of your choice to aid in the MRP process. Our solution also supports bulk order pre-season demand that serves as a bridge between channel-level forecasts and the actual customer orders.
As actual demand starts entering the system through sales orders, the Sunrise 365® Supply Chain Solution helps prevent demand from being overstated with forecast netting and bulk order drawdown capabilities.
As inventory is ready to ship to fulfill sales orders, operational execution must be flawless. The automated order release process ensures this expectation is met with configurable order prioritization and release criteria based on order completion percentages and ship date windows.
SUPPLY CHAIN ANALYSIS
Identify potential problems like missed delivery dates, POs causing delays, or projected post-season inventory overages/shortages before they happen and take corrective action with a bird’s eye view of your supply chain. Built-in dashboards and powerful soft allocation features help you gain early insight into common supply chain challenges days, weeks, and even months in advance.
MAKE BETTER SUPPLY CHAIN DECISIONS
With Microsoft Power BI embedded in Dynamics 365, it makes it easier than ever to spot trends and issues that need attention. Rather than starting with a blank slate, Sunrise 365 includes the necessary reports and dashboards that will give you a new view on your supply chain.
What's the status of your demand based on the supply to which it is pegged? Identify unmet, late, and critically late issues to resolve quickly.
What SKUs will have excess inventory or shortages? Take the guesswork out of the equations and improve your ability to project inventory levels.
