EDMONTON, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Serenic Corporation (TSX-V:SER), a leading
publisher of financial management and business operations software for
nonprofit organizations and government agencies, announced today that it has
released Version 5.0 of Serenic Navigator.
Navigator, powered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV, is Serenic's flagship
product. It combines robust core financial functionality and a full suite of
integrated industry-specific ERP applications, such as the new Serenic
AwardVision, with sophisticated Microsoft technology.
The most significant new feature of Version 5.0 is the re-innovation of
the existing Grant Management application into Serenic AwardVision, a tracking
and monitoring system that allows users to efficiently manage the entire
lifecycle of a grant.
AwardVision delivers the functionality needed by large, multinational
organizations that receive federal and/or private funding to perform programs
and services in many different countries and currencies. AwardVision brings
together both the structured and unstructured data for an award into a single
application. This data integration lets users easily view complex financial
information, such as total estimated award amount, sub-awards, actual
expenditures, indirect costs, and amount invoiced. In addition, compliance and
monitoring information, such as award terms and conditions, milestone
activities, and funding restrictions, is easily monitored with AwardVision.
Other new features of this major release include:
- Tighter integration with Microsoft products through Outlook
synchronization and the use of Word and Excel stylesheets;
- New payroll functionality, including a "create employee wizard,"
error trapping in the calculation process, and new journal displays;
- Improved online help, with a link to provide documentation feedback.
"In addition to the major application enhancements of Navigator 5.0, we
spent considerable time and effort optimizing the underlying code to increase
performance and minimize the amount of locking during certain processes," said
Donna Smiley, Serenic's vice president of product management. "Extensive
analysis of major ledger tables resulted in the elimination or reorganization
of keys in order to gain better performance and reduce overall database size.
Initial testing has shown dramatic performance increases, which we believe
will greatly strengthen the overall client experience."
