Sunrise Integration Clients & Portfolios
Bombas is a socially conscious clothing brand that focuses on making comfortable, high-quality apparel. Their cornerstone product is socks, boasting seamless toe, ultra-soft cotton, and honeycomb arch support. For every item that is purchased, Bombas donates an item to the homeless community on the customer’s behalf. More than 40 million items have been donated to so far with that number growing every day. Bombas wanted to implement a large-scale data migration from Magento to Shopify Plus, which meant that they needed development experts on both platforms. They found our team through the Shopify Experts database (Sunrise Integration was one of the only development agencies that specialized in both Magento and Shopify at the time).
Keeping true to their creativity as a brand, Bombas was an early adopter of Shopify. However, this required several complex features to take their business to the next level. At the time, there weren’t as many options for customizations as there are in present day and as a result, our team called on our creative problem solving skills to build several custom solutions for their needs.
Bombas required custom solutions to extend Shopify Plus’ capabilities at the time. Our team built the following: A virtual sku system to package and market the same SKUs differently to different customers Custom order status app service Connecting their inventory to 3PL (Amware) with a custom app
With these custom solutions built specifically for their needs, Bombas became one of the early success stories of Shopify. Their team was able to operate and scale their business to huge success with ease while doing away with the complexities of their previous platform and workflows.
Pitney Bowes is a multibillion-dollar, 100-year old leading supplier of postage, shipping and international logistics services. Pitney Bowes acquired Borderfree, an company which helps US businesses sell and ship products to other countries. We recognized that Pitney Bowes and Borderfree could benefit from a custom order management system (OMS) app which would enable their clients to ship to customers around the world with more ease and efficiency.
An increasing number of Pitney's customers were asking for an installable app for their shopping cart platform of choice. We developed a partnership with Pitney to provide their own OMS that would be used by Shopify merchants across all industries. Before we partnered with Pitney Bowes and Borderfree, there was no solution that could move order data between their systems and Shopify in a seamless way. After several engagements, we standardized our app to meet that need and improve their workflows.
Building a Powerful Custom OMS App After undergoing a thorough discovery process with Pitney Bowes’ team, we began building a custom Shopify OMS middleware for cross-border retail, called Global OMS. The Global OMS service automatically synchronizes order imports, product feed creation and shipment tracking notification between Shopify and Pitney Bowes and Borderfree. It is a scalable, end-to-end global ecommerce system that handles international enterprise retail. With it, Pitney Bowes and Borderfree are able to localize their domestic website for international consumers (currency and exchange rates, languages, country, prices), integrate cross border logistics, automatic synchronization and provide global customer service.
Adoption by Big Brands Global OMS is a multi-tenant SaaS application that’s being used by many high-profile Pitney Bowes clients on Shopify, such as Rebecca Minkoff, RevTown, Good American and Frame.
The First Shopify App of its Kind
Teelaunch is a leading print-on-demand fulfillment company that serves Shopify merchants. Sunrise Integration partnered with teelaunch back in 2015 when the direct-to-garment (DTG) space was still growing. In fact, there were no DTG apps in the Shopify store at this point, and as a result, startup company teelaunch recognized a huge market opportunity.
We needed to figure out what their business model would look like in Shopify, build the platform and the technology that powered it as well as create a strategic long-term roadmap for their business. Our team did the following: Researched, developed and tested teelaunch’s app Managed their hosting and product Developed their admin section Built their market site (for non-Shopify clients that wanted to use teelaunch) Developed third-party integrations.
The Solution - Business Partners in Building a Massive Shopify App
Our team worked closely with teelaunch to:
- Identify their business objectives
- Complete a competitive analysis for a clear picture of the market
- Outline infrastructure requirements
- Build workflows for sophisticated logistical requirements
- Develop an on-demand supply chain for ease and simplicity
Throughout our relationship with teelaunch, we’ve utilized our creative problem solving skills to develop many different product iterations and improvements so they can better serve their customers and solidify their position in the marketplace.
The Outcome - A Successful Launch to Become One of the Top Apps on Shopify
Teelaunch was an instant hit in the Shopify App Store! Weeks after the launch, it exploded and became one of the top apps on the platform, gaining tens of thousands of customers and up to 20,000 app downloads per day. Fun fact: Shopify actually mentioned teelaunch in the keynote address at the Shopify Unite Conference in 2017. As it grew, we helped them pivot so they could scale sustainably and minimize the growing pains that startups often face.
With 44,000 employees worldwide selling 500 million tickets per year, Live Nation saw an opportunity to provide even more benefits to their workforce staffing their live events. By leveraging the Shopify Plus platform integrated with corporate Single Sign-On (SSO), their employees would be able to log into Shopify stores and purchase branded merchandise from Live Nation and the events they manage with their employee discount.
Shopify Plus recommended Sunrise Integration to Live Nation because of our team’s proven track record of solving large enterprise problems and our convenient proximity to Live Nation’s HQ in Los Angeles.
The Challenge - Integrating Single Sign-On with Multiple SaaS Applications
Live Nation has a significant footprint in ecommerce, operating hundreds of Shopify Plus stores to sell event related merchandise. As a business that constantly innovates and improves, their goal was to make it easy for their employees to make purchases directly on their Shopify Plus stores.
Live Nation makes use of several SaaS platforms to manage employee purchases including Shopify Plus, Okta and Workday (HR management system). Our team had to integrate all of these systems while ensuring the proper application of employee access and discounts.
The Solution - A Powerful Custom Middleware Tool for Automation
Sunrise Integration built a custom middleware tool to automate all the software they had in their technology stack. Furthermore, Live Nation’s Shopify Plus employee stores were modified to work with the different HR access requirements by event and department.
Thanks to their new custom middleware and integration, Live Nation has a streamlined behind-the-scenes process for employee purchases in their stores. This replaces a cumbersome process that required tedious manual work with an effective web-based solution for purchasing merchandise as an employee. Employees can now enjoy an easier, more enjoyable buying experience.
A global leader in logistics and shipping, DHL was founded in 1969 and has grown to operate in over 220 countries and territories worldwide. Their longevity can be largely attributed to their constant pursuit of innovation and growth to better serve their customers. To that end, the team at DHL Express, the business unit which focuses on international shipping and courier delivery services, reached out to Sunrise Integration to help them enter the Shopify ecosystem. With their first Shopify app, they would be able to expand their reach and offer much needed shipping services to growing ecommerce businesses.
DHL’s team wanted a robust feature set and more control that required building a custom app. With this app, their goal was to provide Shopify merchants an all-in-one carrier service. Merchants would be able to look up shipping rates, automatically show the shipping cost in their customers’ carts and create shipping labels and tracking IDs. Furthermore, the Sunrise Integration team built support for DHL’s label printers.
Our team analyzed DHL’s existing apps in Magento, Volusion, and BigCommerce as well as the existing third party apps in Shopify. Using the knowledge and insights we gained during this process, we were able to determine what DHL Express needed for their Shopify app. The discovery process also consisted of a feature set review, API discovery to see what was doable and what wasn’t. Because Shopify did not support dimensional weight natively, we built a custom solution to address that as well.
When it was first released into the Shopify App Store, the DHL Express app quickly became popular eventually reaching 5,600 total installs. Being one of the first international carrier service apps in Shopify, it served as a demonstration for what carriers could achieve within the Shopify ecosystem.
Morphe wanted to maximize their traffic (millions of visitors every month) and incorporate the broad reach of their social media influencers’ video content into their Shopify store. Their team asked Sunrise Integration to take their marketing videos and tutorials and make them shoppable on their website. This would make it even easier and more fun for customers to purchase their makeup products.
Our mission was to implement seamless product integration into Morphe’s video content and subsequently display it on their Shopify store. With a dedicated video section on their website, customers enjoyed an enhanced, highly interactive experience with the Morphe brand and their influencers. This custom solution encouraged more sales and engagement to further solidify their reputation as an innovative brand. The Sunrise Integration team did the following: Developed a custom Shopify theme for the video landing page using Shopify blog engine with Morphe’s YouTube channel video content Built a feature to show shoppable time-stamped products alongside the videos Created video popup on scroll feature - videos continue playing while users scroll the landing page Maintained ADA compliance with video transcriptions Ensured the UI/UX of the video section is seamless with related video section to encourage more browsing and exposure to products
While Morphe had leveraged influencer marketing to massive success, they knew they could take it even further. Together we built a beautiful new gallery of influencer-powered video content that featured products which customers could buy directly from the video page. As a result, Morphe is able to offer their trendy customers an enhanced online store experience that stands out from the competition.
