Sunrise Technologies announced today that its Apparel & Footwear Template is now Certified for Microsoft Dynamics for the most recent release of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. This re-certification signifies that the solution has once again met Microsoft Corp.’s highest standard for partner-developed software and can now carry the distinct Certified for Microsoft Dynamics logo.

The Sunrise Technologies Apparel & Footwear Template enhances standard Microsoft Dynamics AX by adding apparel- and footwear-specific functionality in the areas of inventory management, order processing, season management, and production. The template enables users to more easily manage seasonality, UPC codes, and item attributes. The solution adheres to the Microsoft Dynamics AX best practices and the solution is completely embedded in the Microsoft Dynamics AX platform.

For customers, Certified for Microsoft Dynamics helps identify Microsoft Dynamics solutions that have been tested for compatibility, meet high quality standards, and are successfully used by existing customers. This certification represents a significant step in elevating the standard for partner-developed software solutions for industry-specific business applications.

Solutions that are Certified for Microsoft Dynamics have demonstrated development quality and compatibility with the Microsoft Dynamics product on which they run by passing rigorous software testing for Microsoft Dynamics performed by VeriTest (a service of Lionbridge). In addition, the Microsoft Dynamics partner must have a Gold ERP Competency in the Microsoft Partner Program and have customers who are successfully using the certified solution and are willing to recommend it.

“This milestone demonstrates Sunrise Technologies’ commitment to delivering leading solutions and expertise for our customers,” said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Microsoft Dynamics Partners. “We congratulate Sunrise Technologies for meeting Microsoft’s highest standards of software quality and earning the CFMD distinction.”

“Sunrise Technologies is committed to the best customer experience possible, and we developed our Apparel & Footwear Template with our customers in mind. By achieving the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics designation, we are even more confident that our Apparel & Footwear Template enhances the standard functionality of Microsoft Dynamics AX for customers in the Apparel and Footwear industries,” said John Pence, President, Sunrise Technologies.
