Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

Cons

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • Payroll module is too complex and requires too much duplication of information input. This is the most confusing system I have ever utilized. It needs to be streamlined and duplications removed. Some information has to be entered in 2-3 locations, much too time consuming and easy to overlook.
  • The payroll tax reporting is very much outdated-have worked with much cheaper software that did a much better job of processing tax returns and W-2/W-3's.
  • While we like the accounting, we would certainly like to switch the payroll system for something better.
  • Drill-down ability on the GL would be nice.

Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

I'm giving Blinksale a 10 because it really is a perfect invoicing app. Sure, there are things that can be grown, but comparative to other invoicing apps I've used, Blinksale is lights-out. There isn't a small business owner that doesn't need to try out Blinksale for invoicing.

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

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Many competing products may not offer some of the comprehensive all-in-one type solutions that are found in Abila MIP Fund. Non-profits can have particulate needs such as specialized taxation, funding, and membership support not always address in other commercial oriented products. Often non-profit organizations may piece together separate applications that can be found in Abila MIP Fund and this product can help save a great deal of time and money.

After evaluating and using several invoicing applications, I landed on Blinksale. They just fit my needs perfectly as a small business owner. The app is brilliantly designed, easy to navigate, painless, and makes invoices look great to clients. Tracking invoices and getting paid inside Blinksale are a breeze. On top of that, their unlimited plan for $15 a month is a steal for the product they are offering.

Return on Investment

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • The software really helps save money if implemented correctly. If an organization needs extensive training then its costs might be too high.
  • Centralizing the flow of information into one system can help reduce errors.
  • The reporting tools can either be quite timesaving or sometimes too simplistic. An organization will need to do a good requirement's analysis when looking at this product.
