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.
Brands Don't Compete. Supply Chains Compete.

Pre-season and In-season Planning
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.

- Avoid overstating demand with advanced forecast netting and bulk order drawdown
- Aid planners in the MRP process with an intuitive planning workbench
- Prioritize order release by customer, channel, and order type, as well as other criteria such as order completion percentages and ship date windows

- Simplify transaction management, product management, and industry compliance with color/size matrices and NRF codes
Supply Chain Analysis
Combat shortages, missed delivery dates, late supply post-season overages 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.
- Achieve real-time supply chain visibility with built-in dashboards
- Spot potential problems before they materialize with soft allocation and 'what if' scenarios
- Make smarter purchase and production decisions and minimize inventory overages/shortages
Integrate with the third party forecasting tool of your choice. Sunrise 365® enhances the base MRP and forecast planning functions with Advanced Forecast Netting. You can consider seasonal and channel-specific requirements to prevent overstating demand, resulting in greater fulfillment capability and less excess inventory.
Bulk Order Management
It's typical for an organization's customers to provide bulk order quantities that represent their planned purchases throughout a season. Sunrise 365® Supply Chain includes Bulk Order Management functionality that allows for simple bulk order creation, maintenance, and consumption.
Aggregate Purchase Orders
Easily split distribution of goods from a single purchase order across business units, channels, or locations. Sunrise 365® Aggregate Purchase Orders allow yearly or seasonal purchases to be managed centrally, and later allocate and split out inbound supply closer to the corresponding demand date.
Master Planning Workbench
Master planning in Dynamics 365 is already pretty awesome – and it’s even better with Sunrise 365®. Planners can traverse the product hierarchy in the Master Planning Workbench, while filtering by vendor, planner, and product attributes to more easily identify products that require attention.
Soft Allocation, coupled with the Planning Workbench, helps you optimize supply and distribution by pegging open supply to open demand with configurable prioritization rules. The included visuals and reporting enable proactive and efficient management of the supply chain.
Manage complex retail store replenishment without deploying expensive third party tools. Sunrise 365® Retail Replenishment can help you maintain the correct inventory levels within each store location for optimal sales revenue and reduced inventory inefficiencies.
Mitigate the potential impact of risk to inventory, customers, and cashflow by evaluating the reliability of demand and supply sources. Assign risk profiles to customers, vendors, and products to monitor exposure points. You can optionally apply these risk profiles to soft allocation analysis too.
Automated Order Release
Sunrise 365® Automated Order Release alleviates manual fulfillment decisions when demand exceeds supply to help process shipments as quickly as possible. Open orders are considered against configurable prioritization and threshold settings to most efficiently satisfy customer fulfillment requirements.
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.
