Sunrise Technologies is pleased to announce DAKINE, Inc. has chosen the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP solution to run DAKINE‘s global operations. DAKINE selected Microsoft Dynamics AX because of the integrated nature, ease of use, and industry fit for consumer goods.

DAKINE needed a new business application platform to run global operations after Altamont Capital Partners, a private equity investor, purchased DAKINE from Billabong this summer. DAKINE had to quickly find and deploy an industry-specific global ERP solution that could support operations in the United States, Canada and France. “I chose Sunrise Technologies and Microsoft Dynamics AX for many reasons. An important reason for me was the familiarity that our users have with the Microsoft environment and how this will translate into an improved buy-in and adoption time. We simply don’t have the luxury of a prolonged implementation so we must hit the ground running. Also important to us is the breadth of knowledge that the Sunrise team had about our business environment-not just knowledge of how the ERP system worked, the Sunrise team understood how an apparel business works and how the right ERP can complement and adapt to that environment,” said Roger Roediger – VP of Operations.
