Online PR News – 04-December-2009 – – The League of Women Voters of the United States selected AVF Consulting, a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, to implement Serenic Navigator, a nonprofit accounting solution built on Microsoft Dynamics NAV. The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization founded in 1920 that encourages informed and active participation in government.

In early 2009, the League of Women Voters began their search for an innovative, industry-standard solution that could replace their outdated MAS 200 system. Excellent report writing capabilities and a wide acceptance among nonprofit peers were of key importance. With Serenic Navigator, the League found a solution specifically designed with the needs of a modern nonprofit organization in mind.

“Serenic Navigator enables us to integrate our core financial system with our member database, donor database, and other data silos, which has helped to increase overall efficiency,” said Greg Leatherwood, CFO for League of Women Voters. “With a user-friendly interface and the support of a regional partner with extensive nonprofit experience, the transition to Serenic Navigator has been practically painless.”

The League of Women Voters has already begun to see improvements in their operational efficiency since completing implementation in July 2009. Serenic Navigator has improved the timeliness and accuracy of reports and has decreased the League’s operating costs. “We have reduced the number of journal entries, streamlined our month-end closings, and our executives have greater confidence in our financial reports,” said Leatherwood.

The structure and accessibility of Serenic Navigator is ideal for nonprofits that need to track and report on a variety of income streams such as government and private grants, contributions from the public, and earned revenue.

“AVF Consulting and Serenic have excellent reputations and work with many nonprofit organizations that we respect,” said Leatherwood. “You just can’t find a product with a stronger technological grounding and future-oriented outlook, or one supported by stronger partners than AVF Consulting, Serenic, and Microsoft.”
