Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila MIP Fund Accounting is well suited for nonprofits that need to do financial reporting by cost center. It is also well suited for financial reporting that crosses fiscal years (such as foundation grants).The basic Abila Fund Accounting package does not appear well suited for electronic bill payment. The Budget module does not offer the flexibility of an Excel-based budgeting and projection system.

Pros

  • Abila reporting allows for many levels of detail, from including funding, gl, taxonomy, location, or just looking at location, or by gl, or by taxonomy. It allows you to look at reports from many perspectives. Its a strength for management to have usable information.
  • I like the way you can change the dates specific types of entries are allowed. Its a strength as you are closing grants and years so that you know something you reconciled will not suddenly change. You can go back and make it available again if needed.
  • I really like the Session Manager feature. To be able to completely reverse a session is so quick and easy. But there is still the audit trail. Has saved an enormous amount of data entry when trying to correct a misposting.

  • SaaS, so accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world via a browser
  • Clear and straight forward navigation
  • Good choice of management reports

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.

  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work

We are not in the market for a new solution as this product works well for us and renewal is affordable.

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 was the only accounting software we researched. I previously worked in public accounting and worked with several clients who used Abila MIP Fund Accounting and highly recommended the software. We previously used QuickBooks, which was a good beginner software, but restricted us in certain aspects, especially with reporting

Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.

Return on Investment

  • We are able to see the entire picture using MIP, this is very helpful for future planning.
Bianca Jurczak profile photo
  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
