“Modern retailing is simply not possible without strong IT systems capabilities," said Doug Putman, President of Sunrise Records. “We are building up these capabilities feverishly and have brought in nimble IT partners who can take us to market quickly.”

Sunrise Records, an independently owned Canadian music retailer whose history dates back to 1977, has leaped to an 82 store Canada-wide operation in 2017. The firm launched its expanded operations with a firm belief that the music business could not only survive but thrive with its offerings including vinyl, which has seen a big uptick in popularity. To bring efficiencies in its supply chain and move towards achieving full Omni channel capabilities, Sunrise has engaged with Spice Technology Group to help deliver on a very ambitious set of goals. “Modern retailing is simply not possible without strong IT systems capabilities," said Doug Putman, President of Sunrise Records. “We are building up these capabilities feverishly and have brought in nimble IT partners who can take us to market quickly.”

“Our customers are expecting a great in-store experience, while we prepare ourselves for the realities of the Omni channel world. SPICE has helped us tremendously by quickly deploying cloud based systems that are connecting electronically with our major label partners. Back office efficiency and keeping overhead costs low are key in this highly competitive business,” added Mary Van Santvoort, CFO of Sunrise Records.

“We are delighted to be assisting Sunrise Records and the major labels go to market together with strong IT systems,” said Jose Stein, Partner & EVP of SPICE Technology Group. “We have considerable experience in retail business transformation and supply chain enablement. Being in the cloud, while having in depth experience in end-to-end modern omni channel retail, goes a long way in helping our clients. We congratulate the Sunrise team on their launch and wish them success.”
