Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

Concur Expense

Concur is very well suited to keep track and lay out rules for submitting specific type of expenses so that when individuals within the organization are inputting them they know if they are doing so correctly. It isn't the easiest thing in the world to book appropriate travel accommodations, UI could use some work there.

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.

Concur Expense

  • The automated factor of tracking history, active requests, and ultimately the update features for all end users is exceptional. In large organization’s it’s not uncommon to submit a reimbursement and not see or hear of it for 30+ days. With Concur you receive updates along the way at each approval and verified estimated payout.
  • Team members seem to enjoy the system and have little to no trouble navigating it to efficiently and effectively enter their own reimbursement needs. Additionally, this holds true for managers of users and their ability to quickly and easily review and approve expense reimbursements.

Cons

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • Sometimes support can be a bit off and challenging to get by phone.
  • Some of the reporting tools are not as robust as some competing products.
  • Vendor training costs can be high if needed by an organization.
Bruce Emmerling profile photo

Concur Expense

  • The system is typically not an out of the box tool for users. There is a required training and overview that employees at my organization must participate in before officially getting their account access. This helps cut down on streams of questions by new users, and this suggests a little more complicated than point and click functionality.
  • There are outside Concur employed or other 3rd party vendors that one of the approval steps must go through. This is a little frustrating as the organization’s approval is placed externally so questions can get hung up, but recognizing this is the auditing to ensure we entered the expense correctly offsets this.
  • Administrator accounts have been a challenge. We have admin assistants that support medical providers, and allowing them access to submit reimbursements on behalf of the providers has been tricky for new team members. Functionality still exists but is not as simple as we’d like.

Due to the ease of use and limited training needed to use it. We have saved so much time and money being able to cut down on searching for old expenses via a file system server.

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.

Concur Expense

Concur is definitely in the lead for what we’re utilizing it for (business and mileage reimbursement). The other software I use has functioned and been utilized for various payroll, procurement, and reimbursement needs, but none are in line with needs that Concur has met. The PeopleSoft tools are still valuable for other functions, but there is less automation and the user interface is a little dated compared to the sleeker, streamlined system that Concur has. Concur was much easier to set up to speak with other business systems we utilize (far more than Oracle or Kronos systems), and Concur was also able to better communicate with our affiliate organization health systems in which we have moonlighting and contract workers through.

Return on Investment

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • Hard to quantify the return on investment. Purchasing accounting software is a necessary evil and the payback is hard to measure. Basically MIP is another expense we incur each month in order to keep our books. If MIP could add some better features to its system, there could be a better ROI.
  • I think if you have MIP set up properly you could probably eliminate an FTE from your accounting department. I was able to get by with 2 people when most places would of had 3 or 4 with the same amount of work. The key though is knowing how to use the product, and setting it up correctly.
