Why Sunrise


We’re headquartered in a 45,000 square-foot facility in New York. From this one centralized location we offer a wide range of credit and accounts receivable management services to credit grantors and debt buyers from across the country. This single centralized office allows us to maintain a level of control that simply cannot be achieved by larger “branch office” operations.

Since our centralized operation is more cost effective, we’re able to invest a great portion of our revenue back into resources that directly benefit you, like better support and training for our people, more hands-on management and the latest, most innovative accounts receivable tools and technology.

As part of the Sunrise Family of Companies, we also have a disaster-recovery site located in Woodbury, NY.
