EDMONTON, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Serenic Corporation (TSX-V:SER), ("Serenic" or
the "Corporation"), a leading publisher of financial management and business
operations software for nonprofits, international non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) and the public sector, announced today that Serenic
Navigator has been implemented by the Fort Worth Zoo, a 100-year-old nonprofit
attraction in the Dallas/Fort Worth area that is visited by more than one
million people each year.
The Fort Worth Zoo's mission is to strengthen the bond between humans and
the environment by promoting responsible stewardship of wildlife and ensuring
diverse, high-quality, educational and entertaining family experiences through
effective and efficient management of its resources. The Zoo faced challenges
typical of many nonprofit organizations that need to manage operations across
a large campus. Departments within the Zoo needed easy access to purchase
orders and automated processes that eliminate paper transactions and approvals
- from feed purchases to facilities improvements.
"We were looking for a solution that would update our accounting systems
while giving us brand new capabilities to eliminate hours of manual data
entry," said Scott Wilcox, Fort Worth Zoo chief operating officer. "Serenic's
integrated solution will improve our business processes and create
efficiencies, particularly by eliminating paper-based systems that slow down
our purchase order and requisition processes across all Zoo departments."
The Zoo will use Serenic Portals to connect departments, providing
account information and enabling timely approvals and purchases. Sixteen users
will access Serenic Navigator Advanced Management Edition - certified for
Microsoft Dynamics NAV - as well as other applications within Navigator's
fully integrated extended product suite. Navigator's complete integration with
Microsoft Office, Sharepoint, SQL and Exchange will also enable the Zoo to
leverage their current Microsoft technology investment.
"The Fort Worth Zoo and organizations with similar structures can benefit
from Serenic Navigator's automation features," said Serenic CEO and President
Randy Keith. "With Navigator simplifying its business processes, the
organization can be more effective and efficient in managing its resources,
which is part of its core mission."
The oldest zoo in Texas, the Fort Worth Zoo was founded in 1909 with one
lion, two bear cubs, an alligator, a coyote, a peacock and a few rabbits. From
these humble beginnings, the Zoo has grown into a nationally ranked facility,
housing more than 5,000 native and exotic animals. Since 1991, the Fort Worth
Zoo Association has raised more than $90 million from private entities,
foundations and corporations for Zoo improvements and new exhibits and has
become one of the most popular attractions in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The
Zoo has been ranked as a top zoo in the nation by Family Life magazine, the
Los Angeles Times and USA Today. Visit www.fortworthzoo.org for more
