Vendor Landscape for the Native American Technology Research Center

The Info-Tech Research Group recently released its new Vendor Landscape for the Native American Technology Research Center. We are excited to share that Serenic received high scores and has been recognized as an “Innovator” in the report titled, “Vendor Landscape: Financial Management Solutions.” Serenic is the only software provider to receive an overall “Exemplary” product rating for our nonprofit accounting software, Serenic Navigator. The vendor report helps orgs find the best fit for their needs based on functionality and value for their investment.

The Innovator category identifies software providers that have demonstrated innovative product strengths which act as their competitive advantage in appealing to niche segments such as tribal governments.

Comprehensive Financial Solution for Tribal Orgs

The report notes that Serenic Navigator is a comprehensive financial solution built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV and that, together with our partner Finley and Cook, we bring strong fund accounting, grant management, and GASB compliant reporting tools to tribal organizations like the Muscogee (Creek) Tribal Nation of Indians.

“Tribes looking for a comprehensive solution and a knowledgeable, dedicated vendor should definitely consider Serenic Navigator,” the report states, adding that, “The solution would be particularly useful for any tribes that need flexible accessibility into their solution through the use of Web Client or mobile desktops.”

Info-Tech Research Group Vendor Landscape reports help enterprise IT decision-makers identify a short list of vendors for their IT programs depending on their needs. Included are only those vendors which the Info-Tech Research Group would recommend to their clients. Serenic was one of eight vendors that made the list!

Nonprofit Software Solutions Lead the Way for a Paperless World

February 19th, 2014 No comments

A world without paper; what would that be like? It may not be too far into the future, with the increase of eReaders, Tablets, and Mobile Internet and Apps. It is growing evermore commonplace for organizations to reduce the amount of paper they use. Not only is this an ethical approach to modern business practice, but it can also help streamline processes.

Using a cloud-based or on-premise system where documents can be viewed and collaborated on by multiple users in real-time, and from any location, can provide this paperless world many aspire to and increase productivity. Rather than spending endless man hours tracking down files, staff can update documents quickly and securely, reducing the margin for error, and providing accurate information at the touch of a button. Plus, paper-based processes can be laborious and expensive, unnecessarily wasting resources and creating a lengthy and confusing paper trail. Read more…

New Features in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 Translate to Enhancements in Serenic Navigator

December 10th, 2012 No comments

Serenic Navigator is an embedded Microsoft Dynamics NAV solution built specifically for the unique needs of nonprofits, NGOs and the public sector.  With the recent release of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013, Serenic Navigator is undergoing significant enhancements based on the latest improvements from Microsoft. 

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 features a new Web Client and SharePoint Client, in addition to an improved Windows Client – formerly referred to as the RoleTailored Client. Each “client” can display the role center, giving users three options to access their data, and allowing for improved collaboration with people inside and outside the company. All three will be included in the upcoming Serenic Navigator release:

Web Client:  The Web Client, which will allow users to access Serenic Navigator via a web browser, is ideal for simple tasks and for users who do not perform heavy data entry.  The Web Client is supported by various browsers and devices, including: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Safari on iPad.  It uses a Simple Server Installation with only IIS required.

Windows Client:  This will include significant enhancements to increase user productivity. The improvements in the new Windows Client will include:  charts, query development, OneNote integration, link sharing, and ribbon enhancements to name a few.   The Action Pane has been redesigned and is now referred to as the “ribbon.” The “ribbon” which appears across the top of displays similar to Microsoft Excel and Word, will include new keyboard shortcuts and can be customized to offer users easy, security-enhanced access to relevant, up-to-date information.  Additional views on ledger entries are being added to History on department pages to let you create custom views on role centers, and filtering enhancements will allow you to use filters on lines of any page.  Plus, there are several other enhancements included in the new Windows Client.

SharePoint Client:  This provides the same functionality as the Web Client, but access is provided via Microsoft SharePoint.  Serenic Navigator pages and reports can be displayed via SharePoint, and allows users who own SharePoint to add Serenic Navigator pages as webparts.

Serenic Navigator 2013 is targeted for release during the first quarter of calendar year 2013.
