Abacus

Abacus has been great for our small startup of 37 employees, it has grown with our team since we were very small. Since we have not experienced it as a bigger company, I am not sure what the scalability would be like. If you're looking for a site with a cleaner look that is easy to use, Abacus is it. I haven't had to reach out to customer service yet because I haven't had any issues. If that isn't proof positive of how easy it is to use, I don't know what is!

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

The product is really well suited for small to medium non-profit organizations and other types of operations. Its features might not be as applicable for commercial businesses or large organizations. Some organizations may want to weight its fees and costs when choosing the product. Overall its features are well integrated and quite useful for organizations that may not need a more complex accounting product.

Cons

  • When you upload a receipt to abacus it would be great to port in the information from the receipt to the text fields.
  • It would be good to have a more automated way for Abacus to integrate in with other payroll systems.
  • It would be nice to have more levels of permissions, e.g. manager level, administer level and employee level.
Jennifer Paxton profile photo
  • Understanding the permissions assigned to employees got confusing at times.

Support has been extremely helpful when I've had to call. All issues have been resolved on the first try. They have often given me ideas to try and where to look to find additional help if needed. Never seem to busy to answer a question and ready to listen to the customer.

There are no specifics on what happens if you make one choice or another to know which is the best selection. This is true for JVs and AP. In training we were not given specifics of what happens when one possibility is selected over another.

I believe implementation went well because of the way training was setup. We started with a classroom setting to go thru all aspects of the software then practicing setup before going live.

Alternatives Considered

I used expensify in my last role, however it was at a bigger company so I was not involved in the process besides being a user. Abacus seems easier to use from a user perspective. It would be great to have a better integration with our payroll system, but it seems like with all softwares, you can't have it all

I was not part of the selection for MIP and don't have anything to compare.

Return on Investment

  • It does seem like they are still working out some kinks in the web and mobile apps – a few times the app has crashed. But they're also very fast to push updates.
  • The benefits are simple. No one likes taking time out of their day to do expense reporting. Abacus speeds that process up considerably. The interface is clean, and I'm able to see what expenses are pending vs. expenses that are already cleared.
  • The benefit from a user standpoint is that it adds an element of organization to a process that is typically disorganized. It has saved us numerous hours.
Jennifer Paxton profile photo
  • We were using an outdated version of Great Plains previously. It was DOS based, and only one user could even use it. I can't even describe the difference that has obviously made.
  • We can produce information so much more timely and in a better format than with Great Plains.
  • We outsourced payroll for a while, but came back to Abila because we found it was just as easy.
