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.

Very well suited for distributed companies. Well-suited for companies that have a lot of individual expenses and bills as well as multiple layers of approvals because it's straightforward to locate where something is in the workflow process.

Pros

  • I particularly like the copy/rename reports features. It allows the user to make slight changes to reports they may use frequently and save the report with a new name. This saves time when detailed reports are needed quickly.
  • I like the payroll function and the ability to allocate payroll between accounts rather than to calculate it manually.
  • I appreciate the recaps at the bottom of the AP & JV screens which show the accounts being referenced and whether the transaction is balance. It is a good double check.

  • Allows for clear allocation of expenses.
  • Allows for easy reporting by GL codes and types.
  • Drastically reduces time and resources needed to manually obtain approvals for reimbursement processes.

Cons

  • Reports could be more functional - have the ability to have both GLs and check numbers on reports
  • Some issues with license validation at random the software will decide not to work
  • Addition of new features more often
  • Add address verification support like ADP. ADP can verify addresses without having to google.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • It would be better if there was some kind of notification to admin/finance when a company-paid expense was sitting on someone's dashboard for more than 30 days.
  • Being able to see unsubmitted/draft bills and expense reports on a dashboard rather than running analytical reports would be helpful.

We are so used to this software there is no chance of us starting with a new software and re-learning every step.we are content with the software at this moment and feel there is no need to look for a new accounting software

Anyone looking for a modern Expense Management system should consider Chrome River. Aside from the modern and slick GUI, the underlying system is so configurable it is hard to find processes they cant replace. If the process can be done manually, more than likely Chrome River can automate it and make life easier for both the front and back office staff.

Usability

MIP is fairly easy to learn and to update. Whether it's transaction entry or reporting it has logical steps and maintains consistency. These are things that make usability a positive and not a negative.

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.

Implementation

Abila MIP Fund Accounting6.9
Based on 21 answers
Again, I was not directly involved with the planning and setup of the software. However, I was involved in training my staff during the implementation phase. As with any software implementation, consistency of training is key and a willingness to seek out help from Customer Support helps tremendously to insure accuracy of information and training.

Alternatives Considered

As mentioned earlier, we came from Community Pearl accounting/grant-making/fundraising. It did not allow for the multiple fund tracking like MIP does. We couldn't be happier.
Pat Chase profile photo
Old system simply required transaction descriptions - easy to do from anywhere. Chrome River EXPENSE requires much more information for every single transaction. For a busy month of travel, it can easily take a few hours to complete a monthly expense report. Seems like that time could be better spent on actual core job responsibilities.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.0
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

  • This is a question for our accountant and president. What I do know is that it allows us to increase our "donor advised funds" and offer that as a means for individuals to contribute to our cause.
Pat Chase profile photo
  • Speeds up expense report approval process
  • Slows down the individual user because much more work/time is required
  • Helps the environment by being all-digital
