Serenic released Serenic Navigator 2013 which applied updates from Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 technology and functionality, including a new Windows Client and Web Client, in addition to a SharePoint Client. The multiple clients provide quick updates and access to financial information and reports, and allows co-workers and those outside the organization to share information for improved productivity and collaboration.
Serenic also released Serenic DonorVision, constituent and donor management software for nonprofits. Built on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 platform, the updated Serenic DonorVision is a cloud-based system designed to help link development and accounting departments for more efficient revenue generation, tracking and reporting.
Serenic has also aligned with Microsoft's volume and cloud based business models. As part of the Global Road to Repeatability (“GR2R”) program, Microsoft is assisting Serenic in revamping products, pricing, deployment and implementation strategies. Serenic was selected as one of only two U.S. Independent Software Vendors to participate in the program. The GR2R model is inclusive of both on-premise and cloud based deployment and helps simplify the purchase experience for new customers.
Serenic released version 6.00.01 which included a new nonprofit accounting software module- Serenic BudgetVision. BudgetVision, integrated with Serenic Navigator's G/L, is designed to handle a decentralized budget preparation process, allowing for the creation of unlimited subplans based on fund/dimension filters specified by the budget administrator. 2011 has also been a year for expanding our international footprint with numerous NGO clients and the addition of new partners to our channel in the US, Canada, UK, Netherlands, and Africa to name just a few.

In 2006 Microsoft Dynamics began an Embedded ISV program to help those ISVs with total solutions for their vertically focused markets with license and pricing support to help better serve their industries. As a trusted partner with a nationally recognized solution in Fund Accounting, Serenic became a natural selection for Microsoft, and happily this corporation was selected as one of the first 10 partners world-wide to be inducted into the Embedded ISV program.
Also in 2006, the 5-year exclusivity on Human Resources and Payroll products came to a conclusion. Serenic Corporation acting on behalf of its subsidiary, VisionPay, reached a new agreement with Microsoft whereby all rights and responsibilities of the Human Resources and Payroll products reverted to VisionPay (now known as Serenic Canada). Almost 100 partners around North America signed new agreements to purchase HR and Payroll through Serenic. In return Serenic has committed to a continuation of product enhancements and growth, including the annual tax updates so important to end-users.

Microsoft elects a name change for its financial management software lines to Microsoft Dynamics with abbreviations for each of the solutions it had previously published. Contrary to popular belief, the name change did NOT indicate a software preference, but simply made a better word for the world community that Microsoft had been targeting – Dynamics. The products produced by Serenic fall under the Dynamics NAV umbrella.
Also in 2005, Microsoft announced that Dynamics NAV had achieved the ambitious notation that there were at that time one million Dynamics NAV users around the world.

The alliance with Microsoft began with the software giant’s purchase of Danish software publisher, Navision a/s in 2002 for $1.45 billion (US). This acquisition doubled Microsoft’s business software market penetration following as it did the prior acquisition of Great Plains Software for $1.1 billion (US) before that. With all these packages under one roof the offerings together became known as Microsoft Business Solutions with independent designations as follows:
- MBS Great Plains
- MBS Navision
- MBS Solomon
- MBS Axapta
Navision partner VisionPay of Edmonton, Alberta entered into a business arrangement whereby VisionPay was granted exclusive rights for a 5-year minimum period to develop and market the advanced payroll and human resources software components of Navision financial software applications.
Serenic developed and released the first version of Serenic Navigator, with the name "Fund Accounting for Navision."
Serenic Software, Inc. was founded as a Navision Solution Center.
Serenic continues to have a strong relationship with Microsoft, and the future should prove no exception.
