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.

Especially in a small team, where we trust our employees and just need a simple way to deal with a tedious process, Fetch is great

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.

  • Simplicity - employees just take a picture of a receipt and select a category - that's it, nothing more to do
  • Automation - Fetch automatically pays the employee back once an expense is approved (debits the company bank account and transfers it into the employee's bank account via ACH)
  • Real-time - employees don't need to wait until the end of the month or something like that to send an expense report in, but they do it real time, which also gives the accounting department real-time visibility into outstanding 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.

  • Multi-currency - you can only submit expenses in USD and pay them back in USD. That hasn't been a problem yet, but I guess we'll have to ask employees to do their own conversion if they submit a non-USD receipt.
  • Needs to have employees install the iPhone or Android app

The menu driven software is really user friendly. This makes training new staff the software run smoothly. Creating reports for board presentations, to do monthly reporting to funders and ease in transferring files to Excel are great

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

Support

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.4
Based on 30 answers
We have been financially challenged in the last few years and we have always renewed our support contract, even if it was a financial stretch. The fact that Abilia has been flexible in their renewal accommodation has been greatly appreciated. Every single time we have needed help, it has been effective and efficiently delivered. The service team has worked well with our all skill levels of our staff and I have only heard positive outcomes in our 15 years. Never a bad outcome. I would say this an achievement Abila should be very proud of.

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 was not part of the selection for MIP and don't have anything to compare.

In my previous role our company used Concur. Compared to Concur, Fetch is far simpler and easier to implement for a smaller organization like ours.

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

  • Although I am unable to quantify MIP's impact on our overall business objectives, I will emphasize that its ability to supply information quickly and efficiently as well as the availability of add-on modules to tailor to one's specific business makes it a huge asset. I am required to report financial information to multiple stakeholders (e.g., state/federal funding sources, private grantors, auditors, board of directors) and MIP's ability to categorize, analyze, and summarize all of our complicated and diversified financial information saves me a significant amount of time and energy.
  • We have not yet transitioned to MIP Advance from our on-premise solution. We looked into it but found the price tag to be a huge barrier.

  • The biggest I would say is the hard-to-quantify benefit for employees to be able to deal with receipts easily - plus, constantly be informed about the status of their reimbursements and the speed at which they are getting money back. People finally don't hate the experience of expensing anymore!
  • Accounting's time spent on expense reimbursements is, I would say, reduced by 1-2 hours / week.
