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.

Certify

I think most business users, particularly those who travel and have a lot of expenses to report, will find that Certify is much faster and more convenient than an Excel spreadsheet (our old method). It helps ensure you don't miss any expenses and makes it convenient to submit receipts. It is also quick to identify which expenses were company-paid vs reimbursable, and creates user satisfaction in that it notifies the submitter of the approval process as it moves.

Pros

  • Provide information in a variety of time periods, fiscal year, grant period, or custom time periods in either a detail or summary style.
  • The ability to track information in a variety of ways, by program, by subsections of a program, by department, by division, by agency, by county, by project, and etc.
  • The ability to enter budgets in the way our agency wishes to track them and to be able to compare the budgets to the actual costs in the time frame we want.
  • The ability to import from an Excel spreadsheet is a nice feature.

  • Imports expenses automatically from American Express.
  • Quick approval process with notification emails of the status to the approving parties and submitter.
  • Certify "reads" your receipts and attempts to import certain values for you to create expense records that you can then edit and finalize.

Cons

  • Budget Module - the budgeting module in MIP is somewhat difficult to use and seems to be less user friendly than other modules.
  • Purchasing request system that integrates with MIP - we have not had any luck finding a purchase request system that integrates with MIP. We operate several different programs and the managers of these programs are currently submitting manual requests to use their program dollars. I would like to see MIP introduce a purchasing module that includes an authorization process, and incorporates both check requests and credit card requests.
  • Correcting errors - It becomes somewhat cumbersome when an error needs to be fixed in MIP. A journal entry needs to be made for anything that has been coded to the incorrect general ledger account or other chart of account code. I would like to see MIP introduce a feature that makes this process much easier (i.e. if something is coded to an incorrect grant or program, an administrator can override the entry and manually change the coding).

  • Their system is outdated. The software could be good, but it seems they are not willing to update to get there.
  • They use a 3rd party linking system which will result in you having to manually reconnect your cards to the system weekly, or your reports will not pull in transactions correctly.
  • The way the users are set up, it makes no sense and has a very hard flow to things. You constantly have to ghost another user to approve expenses billed to a card that is added to your user.
  • They are not a customer-focused company who is concerned with their product or how their customers are treated and focused more on filling their pockets.

Likelihood to Renew

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.2
Based on 42 answers
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.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.8
Based on 38 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

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.

I believe implementation went well because of the way training was setup. We started with a classroom setting to go thru all aspects of the software then practicing setup before going live.

Alternatives Considered

I don't know when the decision was made, it was years ago. However, we are not looking for anything new and are sufficiently happy with the product that we are not looking now and have no plans to look for a new product.
Maryann Freepartner profile photo
Originally we selected Certify because of favorable pricing and it met our basic needs. 5 years in we are again evaluating other products seeking direct integration with our accounting system, Intacct and potentially a solution that also offers time tracking.

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

  • Great! [We] always able to improve processes & reporting.
Raquel Dean (De Leon) profile photo
  • Certify has saved me at least an hour each month with expense reporting.
  • Certify has made me look better as an employee and prevent re-work because it helps me capture all of my expenses and not have to amend my reports.
  • I'm not familiar with the cost of Certify to accurately comment on its true ROI, but I know our company users are satisfied with it.
