For its order processing, inventory, and finance needs; Sunrise Kitchens, a
manufacturer of kitchen cabinets was relying on various packages. It was using a
Paradox (Corel) based application called Cabinet Manufacturing System (CMS) to
handle its manufacturing requirements. This was a single user system. 2020
design, standalone cabinet design software, was also being used mainly for
designing kitchen cabinets and preparing initial quotes to prospective
customers. QuickBooks, another standalone system was used for all its financial
requirements. Other solutions used were — Ardis, a specialized software for
optimizing cutting of rectangular shapes, and Aspen, used for programming of CNC
machine at Sunrise. There was no system available for inventory control.

The company realized the need for a centrally hosted Enterprise Resource
Planning solution, something that would provide business process efficiency
within the organization. Sunrise Kitchens partnered with Atna Technologies, to
implement Microsoft Dynamics NAV 4.0 at its headquarters in Surrey, Canada and
at the three subsidiaries in Surrey and Coimbatore, India. The company claims
that the new system has helped to achieve full integration of its systems and
processes in addition to the multi-user mode solution.

This has reduced the cycle time for order flow from sale to manufacturing
considerably. Besides integrating business processes, the new deployment
provided faster ‘order to production cycles’ and multi-user environments. The
company also claims that it has optimized inventory management by 30 %.
