Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

With Abila MIP's versatility I think it would be well suited for any industry, but especially for any industry where you wanted to be very specific on tracking or cost accounting. The ability to segment your accounts allows you to track by just about any method you would like to be successful.

Well suited for basic time tracking in a way that doesn't take a lot of staff time daily but stays useful for general reporting later. Not ideal if you need to track specific projects or inform future hours estimations. Great for non-profits that need to track hours by both general campaigns and type of allocation (mission, fundraising or administrative).

Pros

  • It allows you to create folders in which you can scan invoices, business associate contracts, and contracts in general by vendor. This allows us to keep everything in one place digitally. The good thing about this is that it speeds up finding old invoices, and allows you to send audit selections to the auditor faster due to the items selected already being scanned in digitally.
  • MIP allows for the creation of distribution codes. These are nice as they allow you to charge out common costs to multiple departments in a quick manner. Without this feature, one has to key in manually many line items into the system each and every month. Plus this feature allows for consistency, and elimination of keying errors.
  • If you have the Chart of Accounts set up properly, this system allows you to better track items by departments, Revenue/Fund codes, Location, and by GL. This is important as it allows for better analysis, tracking and reporting.
  • As for the budgeting module, this is also nice as you have the ability to upload your budget via a CSV file or you can manually cut and paste your numbers from excel into the system as well. The key thing though is setting up your budget template to match the format in MIP when cutting and pasting.

  • Easy to use once you get the hang of it.
  • Many useful features in one place.
  • Many options available when needing to drill-down in detail or analyze time categories.

Cons

  • Sometimes pulling reports or building the reports to give you the results you want is difficult to achieve.
  • Creating budgets was a challenge at first as was updating those budgets when revisions occur.
  • We would like to see a copy and paste function added so when entering or changing descriptions you don't have to continually keep typing them over and over.

  • A bit of a learning curve - you get the hang of it but the initial interface is not super intuitive.
  • Reporting is tricky and inconsistent - I have a lot of trial and error when looking for specific information.
  • Not a lot of room for explaining categories in the interface - you have to already know what you are looking at.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.7
Based on 34 answers
Overall, the software has many useful features and is generally east to use, however, when the Data Integrity Check function identifies a problem, it is not clear what caused the problem (so we can avoid making the same error in the future) and it requires us to call Customer Support to resolve the problem. This last step is unnecessarily time consuming.

They consistently provide quality, knowledgeable service to my questions and concerns. The only reason I am not giving them a 10 is because recently the hold time on the telephone has been much longer than in the past. the quality of the customer service, once I speak to a representative continues to be of a high quality, but the delays are atypical of previous encounters.

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 have used QuickBooks Premier for Non-Profits in a previous job, but not at my current position. They have used MIP for several years prior to me coming on board. QuickBooks was much easier to learn, but I don't feel it has as much functionality as MIP does with the use of multiple federal and state managements and reporting

ClickTime is the first product of its kind I have had to use at work. Previous methods were always based in Excel documents and involved a lot more manual and redundant work for the same end result. It would be great if there were a better tie to our project management tools for time estimation, but it does the trick.

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

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • Better tracking and accountability with minimal daily time investment.
  • Less time spent on administrative data entering by payroll team than previous manual methods.
  • Good interface for managers to track their team's time efficiently.
