Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Aliba MIP Fund Accounting would be good for a growing non-profit organization that wants to free up time to focus on their mission by enabling automatic privacy controls, organizing funds to decide where money goes and taking data from an existing system to use in Abila MIP.

Concur Expense

Concur is well suited for a company that processes a lot of expense reimbursements or if the company is going through a financial audit. The audit history and approvals will make it easy to establish proper controls. Concur stores receipts of expense requests and will alert you if a receipt has not been attached.

Pros

  • Abila's functionality for our office includes fund accounting, grants managements, payroll, human resources, and timekeeping.
  • It allows us to report on multiple cost centers for multiple organizations and programs across all grants on the federal and state level.
  • The imbedded reports writer provides extensive reports and you can customize them anyway you want them or your board wants them.

  • The app is great for on the go expense reporting. Very easy to use and you can submit right from your phone making the process very convenient.
  • Provides comprehensive reporting for monthly or yearly expenses by employee, or by department overall.
  • The interface is easy to use and navigate if you understand the linking between your corporate credit card and any financial cost centers you use to charge expenses.

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.

  • The user experience can be improved. The tool can be made more intuitive. First-time users struggle to find things and in our company, we have to develop Quick reference guides to aid new employees.
  • Reporting can be made easier. There are too many mouse clicks required to export one's expense reports into PDF format.
  • The hotel and flight search capability can be further improved. As of now, it works but not up to the mark. The experience of booking a flight or hotel in travel aggregators like Priceline is way different.

Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
It is a great software to use but it can still improve in some areas. Like if they could add spelling check function. Most software this day has spelling check as a standard function. Maybe if they could also expand the filters available when running custom reports would be very helpful

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

We looked at two other software products and they just couldn't track the separate funding sources the way we needed them too. It was going to be a lot of exporting and backtracking to get the right information (at that time). And Blackbaud just didn't seem to have enough "oomph" to be what we needed with the volume of transactions we have.

We use Oracle ERP. We evaluated Oracle iExpenses. Oracle iExpenses is a good tool too, however, our management chose Concur.

Scalability

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
  • Concur tool definitely increased employee satisfaction. I worked for another consulting company with a crappy expense tool and some of the employees left the company as they were not getting their expenses reimbursed on time.
  • The ability to track billable and non-billable expenses is critical for a project-driven organization like ours. Concur handles this and this is a huge plus.
  • Concur increases the productivity of employees and finance teams.
