Abila MIP Fund Accounting

With Abila MIP's versatility I think it would be well suited for any industry, but especially for any industry where you wanted to be very specific on tracking or cost accounting. The ability to segment your accounts allows you to track by just about any method you would like to be successful.

The biggest issue to resolve is whether the organization is ok with having this data all in the cloud, or whether and on premise solution is more comfortable. Going to the cloud has many benefits - cost, hardware maintenance and acquisition, imaging. In my experience, the larger the firm, the more preference for an on premise or hybrid solution. At any rate, the innovation represented by Bill.com is dramatic and the cost savings for smaller organizations can be substantial. Bill.com and firms like it are changing the accounting landscape for organizations!

Pros

  • The flexibility of segment reporting allows us to generate detailed cost structures for multiple federal programs in a very efficient manner. This allows for effective and efficient on time reporting to funders.
  • The importing features allow for very efficient entry of high volume journal entries that also minimize mistakes.

  • Sync with Quickbooks eliminates double entry.
  • Invoices themselves are linked in system.
  • Can pay from anywhere.

Cons

  • The Fixed Assets module is somewhat difficult to use with respect to disposals
  • In A/R posted transactions there is no dollar amount posted
  • When requesting posted transactions, all items appear, not just the one being requested
  • A/P vendor history displays in date order by clicking the tab at the top of the column. However, a printed version does not come out in date order
  • We have had problems matching the A/R aging report to the General Ledger
  • The drill-down feature should be expanded to areas other than financial statements

  • Bill.com could improve on account selection when entering bills. In other words, if you do not have in mind a specific account, you will most likely have to go through the whole chart of accounts to find the suitable one. The type-in search is a bit too specific as typing in a parent account does not show its sub accounts if their name does not start the same way as the parent account.

It is great and easy to use once you have had some training, some are more complex than others, but overall it is a great product.

It was mostly very usable, but onboarding a vendor / employee for direct electronic payment was sometimes tricky. Mostly it was simple and easy though.

The only time Bill.com was ever "unavailable" was then the Sync to Quickbooks function failed. That happened a time or two but was usually quickly remedied. I'm not sure if that's an issue with newer online versions of Quickbooks Enterprise -- at the time we were using a remotely hosted Quickbooks instance accessed via terminal server (vs a cloud offering like Bill.com is)

They consistently provide quality, knowledgeable service to my questions and concerns. The only reason I am not giving them a 10 is because recently the hold time on the telephone has been much longer than in the past. the quality of the customer service, once I speak to a representative continues to be of a high quality, but the delays are atypical of previous encounters.

Any time we had a question or issue the online help system worked flawlessly. You could always get a live person in under a minute or two and they always seemed extremely knowledgeable about the product and were quick and helpful in resolving any issues or questions. Whenever we had to call them on the phone (to cancel a check, setup new administrators in the system [bank security related], etc), they were easy to reach and extremely helpful. I think Bill.com's service is up there among the best I've seen, across both online and telephone channels.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I personally have used QuickBooks, Quicken, and a long-ago product by Software International. QuickBooks and Quicken are easier to use, but do not provide the reporting that Abila provides. Non-profits need an easy way to allocate expenses between grants, especially payroll. They also need to be able to provide reporting by grants. Abila seems to be able to provide this system.

Bill.com was my first option and I am perfectly happy with it. I have been using Bill.com for over 2 years and haven't found a single reason to switch to any of the competitors.

Scalability

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

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • Better customer servcie. My clients like that I am looking out for their time.
