Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Because I work in the FQHC world, I would recommend this product specifically for any business or end user within that field. This product allows people in this field to comply with federal reporting requirements, makes it easier to track grants, and allows for the slicing and dicing of financial statements in many ways which is important in this field. This product is good for most day to day accounting functions and is pretty robust as well for an FQHC. This product is probably less appropriate for large healthcare systems where you want to keep track of statistics which this product cannot currently do.

Bento for Business

Bento for Business is great for businesses where employers are wary of giving out credit cards to employees with unlimited spending. Because Bento is a prepaid debit card, this automatically puts a limit on how much employees can spend. There is also no concern about credit card bills being paid on time because of this.

Pros

  • Abila reporting allows for many levels of detail, from including funding, gl, taxonomy, location, or just looking at location, or by gl, or by taxonomy. It allows you to look at reports from many perspectives. Its a strength for management to have usable information.
  • I like the way you can change the dates specific types of entries are allowed. Its a strength as you are closing grants and years so that you know something you reconciled will not suddenly change. You can go back and make it available again if needed.
  • I really like the Session Manager feature. To be able to completely reverse a session is so quick and easy. But there is still the audit trail. Has saved an enormous amount of data entry when trying to correct a misposting.

Cons

  • I wish it was a little simpler to reverse a single invoice during the AP void check process.
  • In the payroll system improved reporting, being able to pull information from both the employee profile and the payroll system would be appreciated.
  • The ability to hide discontinued vendors from selection lists. As well as some way to improve vendor id conventions.

  • easier way for employees to access their statements without setting them up as admins
  • monthly statements generated by card
  • monthly fee needs to be added to one of the card statements

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
It is a great software to use but it can still improve in some areas. Like if they could add spelling check function. Most software this day has spelling check as a standard function. Maybe if they could also expand the filters available when running custom reports would be very helpful

I was trained on the job by the person who implemented and had used it for 6 years prior to my employment. She was very knowledgeable, but didn't know all of the ins and outs, which is where I self taught.

Alternatives Considered

Abila offers an unmatched level of customization and flexibility for the price. Great integration with their modules as they are in house developed so things aren't tacked on from third parties. Some of the other competitors have to go outside their company to give you what Abila already has built in. Abila is a solid software suite that just works.

In the past, we have used various other credit cards - both business and personal - for business purchases, and some employees have been wary of using them because they have been tied to personal SS#'s. Bento is a prepaid debit card, so there is no anxiety about paying bills on time to avoid late fees and it is not tied to any individual's SS#.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
Based on 6 answers
Not real sure what you mean by scalability. It seems to be able to handle all of the funds we are currently working with. If you mean the looks of it, some things are small and it would be nice to increase the size according to the user.

Return on Investment

  • A lot of time saving on processes. With the addition of the import feature it has cut our data entry in half.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • less stress about paying credit card bills on time
  • more buy-in for employees - they are more willing to use the company card since it's not tied to their SS#
  • easy reporting
