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:
  • to use with Ariba
  • to create a consistent catalog list
  • Manage expenses
Less appropriate:
  • as a reporting tool, very limited;
  • cannot change report formatting
  • mobile application

Pros

  • The vast array of account segmenting allows us to break down our business in many different ways, which gets us the information we need to make sure we are doing business right.
  • We love the ability to process vendor EFT payments, which fits our green thinking and saves lots of paper.
  • Having a cloud based platform allows us to work more efficiently and not have to worry about using the most recent version or keeping up with payroll updates.

  • Deem communicates with Ariba
  • Deem template is easy to complete and upload
  • Deem allows/requests that the catalogs are reviewed/approved prior to being uploaded into the system

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.

  • Deem could be more user-friendly as far as the flow/sequence of required actions between creating a workflow and publishing the catalog.
  • When refreshing a catalog, I wish we didn't have to save the template in the computer and re-upload it. It would be better if we could edit the spreadsheet and save the subsequent versions directly into Deem, without having to save the file first.
  • It would be a plus if Deem supported pictures in their catalogs.

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.

Implementation

Based on 21 answers
I highly recommend using a business partner for implementation. The business partners have implemented this product for numerous years and have a wealth of knowledge from working with various non profits and governmental entities. Some are close by and can provide on site training.

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

Ariba Contract Management
  • Deem catalog has to be created directly into Deem and cannot be created off of Ariba Contract, which would be a nice feature if available
SAP ERP
  • Deem catalog feeds into Ariba for invoice creation; Ariba exports the information into SAP ERP and the items description, prices and general ledgers keep their consistency, which is a great feature
Ariba Procurement
  • Deem works well with Ariba and reports ran off Ariba will show catalog spend; the visibility, consistency, and compliance are great benefits.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.0
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

  • As a non-profit, our main business objectives are to stay within regulations so that we may be paid by our funders and continue to contract with them..MIP allows us to track information to assist in this objective.
  • Cash management is very important, since we are often paid in arrears. MIP helps us track cash and outstanding program balances.

  • Deem catalog allows for commercial contract terms adherence
  • Deem Catalog provides great spend visibility
  • Deem catalog provides consistency on item descriptions, material codes and prices
