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.

BillQuick

BillQuick is great for basic project related items. When it comes to basic day to day data entry, BillQuick is easy to use and very user friendly but the more detailed and specific you get the harder time it has. Their accounting module is still lacking and needs to be further developed. The financial reports are a bit messy and we have had to spend time cleaning it up and getting it to function the way the CPA and IRS needs them. Currently the AR report does not match the Balance Sheet. I have been asking for a few years now to get an AR report that matches (as it should and is required by the CPA and the bank) yet they have not created one that does

Pros

  • The vast array of account segmenting allows us to break down our business in many different ways, which gets us the information we need to make sure we are doing business right.
  • We love the ability to process vendor EFT payments, which fits our green thinking and saves lots of paper.
  • Having a cloud based platform allows us to work more efficiently and not have to worry about using the most recent version or keeping up with payroll updates.

  • Our organization migrated over to Billquick from NetSuite Openair. Billquick has a much user-friendly interface and more presentable reports.
  • Our organization had specific metrics we wanted to measure that were unavailable in Billquick's standard software. It was an easy process to be able to work with Billquick's customization team to get Billquick to calculate these metrics and generate reports that now included those metrics.
  • Our organization was able to invoice client reimbursable expenses as well as professional fees right directly out of the system on a professional and presentable template, thus saving us time on creating client presentable invoices outside of the system.

Cons

  • They need to better explain how to create definition files so end users can learn how to upload large amounts of data into the system. As of right now, most end users have to contact a consultant to create the definition file and pay literally thousands of dollars in order to do uploads.
  • The financial statement reports could be better. When I created the income statement, the profit is shown as a credit, while a loss is shown as a debit which makes it look funny for presentation purposes. I now have to key everything into Excel so it doesn't do this. The reports could be better if it allowed a way to add statistics to the report. Most FQHCs present stats like visits, Days Cash on Hand and so on. It would be nice to be able to have these stats shown in the financial statements.
  • MIP needs to allow for easier copying and pasting items into the fields. In the Budget module, you can't right click and paste. You need to select the "Edit" and then paste from the drop down menu.

  • Pre-programmed Features - the system comes with items (such as default accounts) which you can not edit, delete, or make inactive. You have to explain to a CPA or upper management what they are and why there are there. These default accounts are also the catch all for when there is a difference in fixed fee billing.
  • When looking for specific details, it is hard to follow exactly where everything came from. It works best at the broad overview level but the more detailed you get the harder it is to find the answer.
  • When running reports, the ability (or lack there of) to choose which phases you want to see is missing. You can say you want phases 1, 2, & 3 yet only 2 will show and there is no a reason for this.
  • Time & Expenses which have been marked as not billable don't show up on billing reports. We have asked tech support for help with this but they were only able to give us a report to run each month. The time should still show up on the billing report even if it's marked as non billable as that time is still against the project.
  • In the credit card screen, once you start entering items in you can not go back and delete a line item. You can make it $0 but not get rid of it 100%.

We currently are seeking a more robust system without consequential billing flaws. We may not find a system better or more economical than BillQuick but at this time we are in review.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.8
Based on 38 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.

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.

There were no records available to indicate where accounts with balances needed reversing entries. This problem carried forward for several years until it was traced back to implementation and reversed.

It does take some time to understand the options and to find the best invoice template.

Alternatives Considered

I have not had an opportunity to compare this system to others. I had no input in selecting this system. I would have liked to have compared it to other systems in terms of ease of use/intuitiveness, flexibility and granularity of report development, and capabilities in dealing with prior year adjustments and their effect on trial balance reporting. On those counts, I do not think the system scores very high

We currently use Quickbooks along with Billquick and they work great together.

Scalability

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

  • Abila has streamlined and allowed more tasks to be automated maximizing the efficiency of staff so more staff is not needed.
  • The Maintenance and Support annual fee is a bit expensive and not a very good return especially for the amount of features that are updated from year to year. I don't use support a lot since our systems are pretty efficient so hence I don't think the annual M&S is justifiable.
  • Abila's importing feature allows integration to many different systems which makes Abila very flexible allowing costs to be saved if the owner of the Abila system switches between vendors.
Donavan Lam, CPA profile photo
  • It's increased employee efficiency, as it's easy to use.
  • It provides better customer service when a client calls and asks for a detailed summary of their account. We can easily run the statement.
  • We converted from another program 4 years ago and have liked it better.
