Diocese of Orlando Selects Serenic Navigator

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2008) - Serenic Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SER), ("Serenic" or the "Corporation"), a leading publisher of financial management and business operations software for nonprofits, international NGOs, and the public sector, announced today that the Catholic Diocese of Orlando has selected Serenic Navigator as the organization's new financial management solution.

The Diocese of Orlando was established in 1968, and originally included fifty parishes and served 128,000 Catholics. Because of the explosive growth of the Orlando metropolitan area, engendered by the opening of Walt Disney World and other tourist destinations, the Diocese became one of the fastest growing in the nation. Today, it includes 80 parishes, 10 missions, and 37 schools spread over nine counties of Central Florida. It serves a population of approximately 800,000 Catholics.

The Diocese provides many social services through its diocesan, parish and school ministries, San Pedro Center, the Farmworker Ministry, Bishop Grady Villas and Catholic Charities of Central Florida. Additional information about these services and the Diocese of Orlando can be found at

"The Diocese of Orlando purchased Serenic Navigator based, in large part, on referral information from within Serenic's large community of diocesan clients," said Serenic President and CEO Randy Keith. "They needed to replace their existing AS400 system with software that would provide the advanced budgeting capabilities, automated workflow processing, and investment management capabilities required to effectively manage the fund accounting needs of the Diocese. We are very pleased that they found what they needed in Navigator and happy to welcome them into the Serenic client community."

Navigator, certified for Microsoft Dynamics NAV, is Serenic's flagship financial management product for nonprofits, international NGOs and the public sector. It combines a full suite of integrated industry-specific business operations applications together with sophisticated Microsoft technology.

"We were impressed by Serenic's focus and commitment to the Diocesan community" said Jack Paige, Director of IS and Technology for the Diocese of Orlando. "Serenic's Investment Management product, for example, is a fully integrated component of the Navigator financials solution and is a great fit for our Diocesan Savings and Loan program. This was not something we could find in other products. And since Navigator is based on the powerful Microsoft Dynamics NAV system, we will also have full integration with Microsoft Office."

"After talking to other Serenic clients and completing an intensive review of the product," added Paige, "we are confident that Navigator will empower us to provide the level of accountability and transparency our constituents deserve."
