Jewish Community Center of Chicago Adds Serenic Navigator to Maximize Efficiencies

    TSX Venture Exchange Symbol "SER"

    EDMONTON, June 29 /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 selected by the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Chicago, a
nonprofit organization serving the greater-Chicago area Jewish community.
    For more than 105 years, the JCC of Chicago has fostered Jewish values
and community to ensure that the Jewish community is alive, vibrant and
relevant. The JCC's programs - from early childhood classes and summer camps
to year-round programs for all ages - have strengthened the Chicago community
for thousands of members through dynamic life-enriching experiences.
    The JCC derives its funding from a variety of sources, including the
Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago, community members, corporations,
foundations, and program and membership fees. Tracking funding and spending
among its 15+ locations and various programs called for more current
technology, so the organization wanted to upgrade the financial system it had
been using for 15 years. JCC selected Serenic Navigator after completing an
extensive review of viable software products.
    "We needed to integrate various components of our organization through a
more efficient financial solution that could help us grow in the future
without drastically re-working our accounting platform," said Michael Shapiro,
JCC of Chicago's CFO. "With Serenic Navigator, we will enable a
geographically-independent workforce. Our staff will have easy access to
information and reports wherever they may be working - in JCC facilities,
remote locations and camps or home offices - to provide real-time financial
updating and monitoring of our programs."
    A total of 21 users will access Serenic Navigator - certified for
Microsoft Dynamics NAV - and AwardVision, Serenic's grant management product,
with unlimited users accessing Serenic Portal Services features via the Web.
The fully integrated Serenic Navigator product suite includes advanced
budgeting capabilities, which will allow the organization to combine
financials, procurement and grant management.
    "Serenic Navigator ensures the ability to maximize resources through
improved productivity for organizations like the JCC of Chicago," said Serenic
CEO and President Randy Keith. "Our relationship with Microsoft, our
commitment and expertise in the nonprofit community and our scalability will
allow the JCC to function more efficiently with more flexibility as they
