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.

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

  • 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.

  • Accounts Payable Imaging and Routing - No more file cabinets, not more chasing down invoices lost in mail boxes, no more delay in getting payments approved.
  • No Software or Hardware - since Bill.com is completely cloud based, it is inexpensive to get started and convenient.
  • Fees are Transaction Based - at this time, checks cost $1.49 and ACH payments are $.49 each. Monthly fees are between $50 and $200. Depending on volume, total costs can be much lower than traditional software systems.
  • Eliminates paper checks and file cabinet storage of AP vouchers.

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.

  • When transitioning from QuickBooks Enterprise to QuickBooks Online, the conversion process with Bill.com can be very cumbersome and time consuming. We lost a lot of hours in time spent fixing all variances between Bill.com and QuickBooks due to the conversion process.
  • Bill.com is not able to handle three layers of hierarchy in customer accounts when syncing with QuickBooks Online. This was not an issue when we were using QuickBooks Enterprise. There is a manual workaround we can follow but it adds time to the process and is manual which brings the potential for human error.

Usability

Based on 34 answers
If you are not an accountant, it would be very difficult to use. As an accountant there are aspects that are so specific that if you do not understand how they work and hand off to other parts of the software, you can really mess up your reporting.

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

It is mostly available when it is needed, however there have been power and internet outages that have limited the availability of programs.

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)

Our reseller and the MIP technical support team has been very reactive when questions or problems have arisen. The reseller has been especially helpful in figuring what to do about entry problems.

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.

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.

  • Saved multiple trips to clients' office.
  • Increased eficiancy
  • Saved time and money for filing documents online
