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.

FE-NXT is well suited for batching processes, but I would prefer doing financial activities in "real time" so the financial reports result in "real time". A good comparison is the accounting software titled Red Wing Controller. The FE-NXT software could be more user friendly, especially when it comes to creating financial statements. It is very tricky to remember which template to use when creating a financial report.

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.

  • Produce numerous statements for management
  • Tracks projects/programs within each fund restriction
  • Tracks Budget-to-Actual by general ledger and projects
  • Produces visual dashboards for use by our board
  • Fixed Asset module reduces time creating monthly depreciation schedules
  • A/P keeps us on-time with vendor payments and the new quick flash feature allows all vendors to be entered on one screen

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.

  • At this time it doesn’t distribute negative entries to the correct project when there are multiple projects. This becomes a problem when you are trying to use a credit for one project but expenses invoice to a different project.
  • The edit feature for imported journal entries is more difficult than in Financial Edge.
  • The timeout feature logs you out too quickly.

There aren't too many non-profit specific financial/accounting software solutions available. Even so, Financial Edge NXT meets the needs of our staff and allows us to operate efficiently.

Usability

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.

Implementation

There were no records available to indicate where accounts with balances needed reversing entries. This problem carried forward for several years until it was traced back to implementation and reversed.

Alternatives Considered

I have not had an opportunity to compare this system to others. I had no input in selecting this system. I would have liked to have compared it to other systems in terms of ease of use/intuitiveness, flexibility and granularity of report development, and capabilities in dealing with prior year adjustments and their effect on trial balance reporting. On those counts, I do not think the system scores very high
Thomas Harty profile photo
We did not evaluate other comparable products, we were hosted with FE 9, so beginning to explore the features and uses of Financial Edge NXT was a logical next step.

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

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • It's helped us speed up month-end closing.
  • It's provided good internal control features.
  • It's improved our Accounts Payable invoice processing.
