Serenic Software participated as an exhibitor in our first Mission Leaders conference, hosted by Missio Nexus in Atlanta, GA, September 25-27. Typically, a vendor’s goal at any tradeshow is to network with current customers, check out new competitors, and bring home plenty of sales opportunities. And while we were successful in those endeavors, we found ourselves spending much of the time marveling at the passion and dedication of conference attendees. Listening to the stories of missionaries who have travelled all over the world and learning about the experiences of mission-focused experts who volunteer their time to help train, mentor and certify mission teams, was far more interesting than talking about accounting software for nonprofits.
However, we did engage with several like-minded members responsible for accounting or IT services within their organization who were excited to learn more about how the Serenic Navigator financial management suite can enable them to have a stronger positive impact on their mission through sound financial management. These included Tim Case, Assistant Director of International Ministries with Elim Fellowship, a Christ-centered worldwide revival fellowship “committed to strengthening leaders so that the church will be equipped to reach the world.” In fact, we drew Tim’s card as the winner of the $150 Visa gift card we gave away as part of our participation in the event.

The annual Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) in Chicago was, as always, a great experience. The Serenic staff, which included David Cote, Elizabeth Easter, Rhonda Shuptrine, and Mandy Wier spent two days in the exhibit hall catching up with old friends and meeting new contacts in the Diocesan market.
Diocese and Archdiocese have become one of Serenic’s biggest customer bases. With clients such as the Archdioceses of Atlanta, Orange County, Los Angeles, the Dioceses of Fargo, Salt Lake City, and Orlando, a number of Catholic Charities, and other Catholic organizations, Serenic has become a recognized and respected name in the tight knit DFMC community.

Serenic Software was happy to once again be an official sponsor for the Association of Independent Research Institutes (AIRI) Conference September 7th through the 9th. And AIRI was happy to have us there, too, as they extended thanks during the general session for 10 years of support from Serenic Software.
The exhibit hours during breakfast, refreshment breaks, and the Sunday night reception provided our staff, which included Mandy Wier, Marketing Campaigns Manager, and Michael Pawlowski, Account Executive, ample time to speak with AIRI members about the environment that they work in today. A great number rely on grant funding to keep their research and operations going, specifically from NIH, and many people expressed interest in AwardVision for their pre-award through post-award tracking.
Our staff had fun giving away USB car chargers, media stands, and screen cleaners, as well as two lap top bags and a $150 Visa gift card to one lucky winner.
The conference, held at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, CO, boasted fantastic panoramic views from the 38th floor of the Rocky Mountains to the west and the city to the East. Conference goers and exhibitors were in awe. Serenic is lucky to have offices in the Denver area, and this conference was an awesome reminder of the beauty that surrounds us.
Christelle Gorman, Operations Assistant, Global Program for the National Alliance of State & Territorial Aids Directors (NASTAD) is the winner of Serenic Software’s $150 Visa gift card drawing staged at the InsideNGOs 2014 Annual Conference. Christelle stopped by the Serenic booth to learn more about Serenic Navigator, Serenic’s financial management software for NGOs, and dropped her business card into the basket for the drawing. We enjoyed visiting with Christelle and hundreds of other NGO representatives who attended the event in Washington, D.C. July 29 – 31. The passion and dedication the attendees have for their missions was overwhelmingly apparent, as they eagerly soaked up all of the information they could to help their organizations have a stronger impact.
One of the most special aspects of the event for those of us in the Serenic booth, which included Serenic Director of Sales Chris Stevenson, Sales Manager Michael Pawlowski, and Director of Marketing Linda Nicholson, was the opportunity we had to renew acquaintances and reestablish friendships with our many customers who were in attendance. The opportunity to work with people who focus every day on making the world a better place is an opportunity we cherish.
As a new member of the Sylogist group of companies, we at Serenic have a very exciting year ahead of us. We can’t wait to see you all again next year to share in person how that excitement translates into new benefits for customers and enables stronger impacts on the missions they serve.

We look forward to seeing our long-time customers, as well as meeting new folks doing praiseworthy work around the world. There’s a few times at this year’s conference where we can catch up:

2013 InsideNGO Conference
It was an absolute pleasure to once again attend the Christian Leadership Alliance Conference in Dallas, Texas. This year’s conference theme was to help you to achieve “Kingdom Outcomes” that will transform the lives of those you serve, and that is exactly what Serenic Navigator helps you do. Serenic Navigator allows you to focus on your mission and those you serve, not maintaining your system and spending hours on reports.
It was especially nice this year to be able to engage all size and types of nonprofits knowing we have solutions to meet the needs of numerous organizations. In the past, I’ve had conversations with folks needing true fund accounting software, but they weren’t able to afford a system that easily tracks and reports according to their needs. No matter the nonprofit organization size, most still have multiple funds to track, as well as expenses and other costs by program, project, department or whatever the need may be. Read more…
The Annual meeting of the Association of Independent Research Institutions took place September 8-September 11 in Washington DC. The Serenic Team enjoyed the chance to connect with long-time Serenic Navigator clients and share with other organizations the benefits of Serenic Navigator for their organization. Of particular interest with this group of non-profit organizations is our AwardVision product, which facilitates an efficient, streamlined process for tracking grants from pre to post award. David Cote, a Senior Solutions Engineer, presented AwardVision to a crowd on Monday evening at the show to many “oohs” and “ahhs” over the product’s remarkable capability and seamless integration with Serenic Navigator.

This year’s Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) was held in Boston, MA. Each year, the show proves to be a good opportunity for us to catch up with our beloved nonprofit clients and begin conversations with folks that we haven’t met before.
Our client breakfast on Monday morning was well attended, even though some of our clients were on a 4-6 hour time difference (special thank you to our clients in Alaska and Hawaii for attending!). We took the opportunity to show some of the new enhancements to Serenic Navigator 2013 and answer questions about upgrading to the new version. Read more…
It was an absolute pleasure to once again be a part of InsideNGO Annual Conference held in Washington, DC. This year I was joined in the booth by Chris Stevenson, VP Sales & Alliances and Ron Bean, East Region Channel Sales Manager. As always the InsideNGO staff members never miss a beat to make you feel welcome and have an overall great conference experience. From the good and healthy meal selections to the informative sessions you always walk away feeling fulfilled. Even with the exhibitor space more than doubling in size, they maintained an intimate atmosphere for exhibitors to meet with prospects and clients. Read more…
Earlier this month, Serenic was able to attend the 2013 Bridge Conference in Washington, D.C. Geared toward nonprofit marketing and development professionals, the conference provided the venue for us to discuss our DonorVision solution for donor management, while providing attendees with fun giveaways such as screen cleaners, media stands, and lap-top bags.
