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.

Financial Edge

Mostly I deal with student tuition tracking and reporting on donations imported from other products, such as the Blackbaud development software: The Raiser's Edge. Financial Edge is fairly good at tracking the complexities of fees and financial aid, but it can't email invoices to the parents and does not allow for payments to be processed automatically according to a payment plan.

Pros

  • Abila reporting allows for many levels of detail, from including funding, gl, taxonomy, location, or just looking at location, or by gl, or by taxonomy. It allows you to look at reports from many perspectives. Its a strength for management to have usable information.
  • I like the way you can change the dates specific types of entries are allowed. Its a strength as you are closing grants and years so that you know something you reconciled will not suddenly change. You can go back and make it available again if needed.
  • I really like the Session Manager feature. To be able to completely reverse a session is so quick and easy. But there is still the audit trail. Has saved an enormous amount of data entry when trying to correct a misposting.

  • Grant Management - nothing is more harrowing than grant reporting, and FE does it best. It allows for layered budgets and limitless division of expenses among grants, overhead, or other projects/programs.
  • Reporting - Most financial software tries to adapt for-profit accounting into a non-profit mode without addressing the unique needs of a nonprofit for reporting and auditing.
  • Multiple projects and/or cost centers within a budget and system - nothing is more challenging than trying to manage expenses over several cost centers and FE is a champ at allowing that complexity.

Cons

  • I wish it was a little simpler to reverse a single invoice during the AP void check process.
  • In the payroll system improved reporting, being able to pull information from both the employee profile and the payroll system would be appreciated.
  • The ability to hide discontinued vendors from selection lists. As well as some way to improve vendor id conventions.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • While the program is highly customizable, it would be helpful if there was more direction on best practices of how to set everything up.
  • Expand on reporting.
  • Ability to report on "open" years.

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.
Christine Frenzel profile photo
Most FE installations I have participated in were from QuickBooks Pro. QuickBooks, if set up well, is a great alternative for the smaller association or nonprofit, but it has challenges handling some of the unique aspects of nonprofit accounting. Recent editions of QuickBooks Pro have included a new nonprofit component, but it can be difficult to use.

Return on Investment

  • It has had a negative impact in that it remains too time consuming to get information that is needed out of the system.
  • It is not very intuitive in lending an easy way to figure out what types of reports to run and what information can be included.
  • Too many strange results are obtained when running trial balance reports. I get different results based on different date parameters.
Thomas Harty profile photo
  • Like any enterprise software, there are costs/investments ahead of return. It isn't something you would implement without support.
  • During the significant financial downturn, we were able to use FE to forecast trends and make budget adjustments easily. It transformed communication about forecasting and cuts with assurance.
