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.

It fits our organization very well. As stated before we were on the Excel spreadsheet method which did not translate into usable data in our accounting software. All of our employees find it easy to use and the accounting team is able to dive into data for both current and prior reports when questions arise. This has been a great company addition. Happy with our selection!

Pros

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • The interface and operations of Abila MIP Fund are fairly easy to utilize and learn.
  • It offers some excellent tools for managing a non-profit operation.
  • The software makes it easy to streamline operations into one system without dealing with separate departments working with different systems.

Certify

  • Customer service/support: They have an incredible team. We are fans of the chat option and 99.9% of the time our issues are solved within a 5-minute window.
  • Listening to customers: they are always looking for ways to improve their product. They have free conferences sprinkled around various cities. They are worth trending. They provide "what's new in Certify" as well as round-table discussions specifically addressing how their customers are using the product and what they have learned along the way.
  • Keeping their product up to date: Certify takes back various suggestions from the conference to enhance their product. I have been at every conference they have had and have actually seen customer suggestions get implemented into the program.

Cons

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • It would be nice to switch between databases without having to logout and login.
  • When entering codes (like for a journal entry) it doesn't auto-search/fill the account numbers...you have to hit the dropdown and scroll for the number.
  • You can't post cash receipts without first having an invoice, which can slow down your processing.

Certify

  • Reporting: I would like to see more chart availability from the program. We include various data points from Certify in our monthly financial statement package. Currently, we export data from the program and create our own pivot tables to create charts.
  • Dashboard feature: It would be nice to be able to use the data for a specific date and then be able to print that information.
  • Can't think of another one. As stated before, they listen to their customers so prior issues have been addressed and implemented.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila MIP Fund Accounting 8.4
Based on 39 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.

I am very used to Certify's components. But some users that I manage still have a hard time fixing their expense reports no matter how many times I try to teach them. The Editing expense Report and Adding Expense Report option sometimes gets confusing and causes some employees to enter transactions twice. There should be a better layout to make it easier for them to edit and finish their expense reports. I try to teach Certify as much as I can, but the usability should be a bit easier so it is less confusing.

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

When we purchased Abila MIP Fund Accounting software, we had looked at several other options. However, none of the other options allowed the flexibility that Abila MIP had. It also helps that Abila MIP Fund Accounting software is designed specifically for the non-profit sector. It was an easy choice when we laid out all the options.

Certify

Before Certify, there was only manual expense reports entered for our company. This took too much time for employees too finish and caused a delay of efficiency. With Certify, it is easier to access and finish each report with the right amount of effectiveness and efficiency it needs. Certify is really helpful in saving a lot of time for employees that do not have time.

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • Having MIP Advance has allowed us to focus on our work and not worry about system and payroll updates and back-ups. That has been a tremendous relief and allowed us more time to be efficient in our processes.
Eric Harvey profile photo

Certify

  • Overall a good solution for an organization. It saves a lot of time compared to other methods of expense tracking.
  • Automated integration with AMEX makes reconciling those expenses easy and timely.
  • Intuitive interface means there was not much of a learning curve.
  • Better and more available video training by Certify would be helpful to learn the best way to use the platform and save even more time.
