SERENIC ACQUIRES SOFTWARE FROM CLIFTON GUNDERSON: Serenic Corp., an international publisher of financial and operational software, has acquired the software product OneCare from regional accounting firm Clifton Gunderson LLP.Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

OneCare is built on Microsoft Navision, as is Serenic's flagship product, Serenic Navigator. It provides program management, scheduling and billing for human services organizations. OneCare will join a suite of products that integrate directly with Navigator.

OneCare allows human services organizations to perform many operations within a single application, running on a single unified database. Areas handled by OneCare include expense management, task and scheduling management, real-time reporting and statistics, document management, outcome-based report writing, billing and payroll, and multi-tiered security across organizations.

"One of our strategic imperatives is to bring to market an operational solution designed specifically for the human services industry," said Serenic's president and chief executive, Jay Malik, in a statement. "Our existing relationship with Clifton Gunderson, a certified reselling partner of Serenic Navigator, led to the acquisition of OneCare, a transaction that both companies agree will greatly benefit the clients we serve."

Pricing for Serenic OneCare has not been set.
