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.

Coupa

Coupa seemed ideally suited for expense tracking/reporting, and is equally useful for tracking company purchasing.

Pros

  • The flexibility of segment reporting allows us to generate detailed cost structures for multiple federal programs in a very efficient manner. This allows for effective and efficient on time reporting to funders.
  • The importing features allow for very efficient entry of high volume journal entries that also minimize mistakes.

  • Coupa is easy to use, however, we had to teach our end users about procurement. They are not used to conducting an RFP, onboarding a supplier, or preparing a PO. This is the change management that our employees had to be prepared to understand. The Shelby Group helped us with the implementation.
  • The hardest part was the integration between NetSuite and Coupa. We wanted to have a dynamic tight integration between the two solutions. If we adjusted the chart of accounts or added a new supplier we wanted it to be able to done in both systems and be available immediately in both systems. We used a partner called SuiteSkies to accomplish this dynamic integration.
  • We’ve been able to manage the implementation and maintenance with a very lean IT group.

Cons

  • The interface is not very user friendly. It can be daunting or intimidating for users who may not have knowledge of accounting software.
  • I feel that if Drillpoint reports can be integrated with the Scheduler Module, it would make reporting and data manipulation even better.

  • Coupa supports flat file integration out of the box, but we wanted dynamic integration with NetSuite. This was not easily accomplished and we needed to hire another company called SuiteSkies to handle this real time integration.
  • Coupa was missing the ability self service supplier maintenance and onboarding. Coupa was willing to listen to me and several other customers. They asked me to join a Customer Advisory Board that helped provide feedback and ideas on how to deliver a new module called Supplier Information Management.

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

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

We have had problems with MIP's ability to integrate with other software or systems. Just makes for a longer shopping time when searching for products we need to integrate with MIP

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

I personally have used QuickBooks, Quicken, and a long-ago product by Software International. QuickBooks and Quicken are easier to use, but do not provide the reporting that Abila provides. Non-profits need an easy way to allocate expenses between grants, especially payroll. They also need to be able to provide reporting by grants. Abila seems to be able to provide this system.

Coupa fits within our desire to have best of breed systems delivering value to our organization. We generally work with true cloud providers that are available anytime, anywhere for our mobile workforce. We are pleased that Coupa is in our lineup of service solutions.

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

  • Abila has streamlined and allowed more tasks to be automated maximizing the efficiency of staff so more staff is not needed.
  • The Maintenance and Support annual fee is a bit expensive and not a very good return especially for the amount of features that are updated from year to year. I don't use support a lot since our systems are pretty efficient so hence I don't think the annual M&S is justifiable.
  • Abila's importing feature allows integration to many different systems which makes Abila very flexible allowing costs to be saved if the owner of the Abila system switches between vendors.
Donavan Lam, CPA profile photo
  • The Sourcing Module has returned our investment 23 times on an annualized basis.
  • We're now SOX compliant and as a public company, that's keeping us compliant with our corporate charter.
  • Having one central invoicing location has reduced our AP calls significantly. Our suppliers now have visibility into where their invoice is in the payment cycle. We also have a much higher invoice-to-pay cycle.
