Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

The product is really well suited for small to medium non-profit organizations and other types of operations. Its features might not be as applicable for commercial businesses or large organizations. Some organizations may want to weight its fees and costs when choosing the product. Overall its features are well integrated and quite useful for organizations that may not need a more complex accounting product.

We used Freshbooks as an alternate source of invoicing (we use Stripe for recurring billing) and it works well in this setup. It is not meant for invoicing for Software-as-a-Service products.

Cons

FreshBooks

  • Having bank feeds imported straight into the system like Xero does
  • Balance sheet is a bit cumbersome as it doesn't update figures automatically based on sales activity
  • Templated emails should have a quick warning before they are applied to the invoices

FreshBooks is very easy to use even for novices. If you're looking for an online accounting software that is full of features, has great aesthetics and is user-friendly, then this is definitely the software for you. I've been using it for several years now and despite being tempted to switch by other vendors, I like the feel of FreshBooks and it's mobile features.

I think that their online tools and resources are great and concise but would like it more if you knew what improvements were in the pipeline. There are a number of features or tweaks that I've seen suggested but I don't really know if anyone from FreshBooks is listening to them or if they're being worked on.

I was trained on the job by the person who implemented and had used it for 6 years prior to my employment. She was very knowledgeable, but didn't know all of the ins and outs, which is where I self taught.

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila offers an unmatched level of customization and flexibility for the price. Great integration with their modules as they are in house developed so things aren't tacked on from third parties. Some of the other competitors have to go outside their company to give you what Abila already has built in. Abila is a solid software suite that just works.

I'm still a little on the fence about whether or not I'll migrate over to Nutcache. It is very similar to FreshBooks but is completely and fully free. Plus there are no limits on the number of clients you can have or the number of companies. You really have to decide if you need the extra features of FreshBooks like recurring payments and importing expenses from your bank account because at present, Nutcache doesn't have those features.

Return on Investment

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • Staff time - MIP has allowed us to save a significant amount of staff hours by by changing the way we process transactions (i.e. accounts payable process, accounts receivable process, recurring entries, copying posted sessions - as previously mentioned).
  • Grant reporting - MIP has allowed us to customize reporting for all major funding sources. This has allowed us to meet deadlines set by our grantors, submit reports more timely and increase cash flow as a result of tracking accounts receivables and drawing down funds quicker.
  • Internal reporting - MIP has helped with internal reporting to senior management, other departments and the board of trustees, which has helped other departments accomplish their goals and targets.

  • Easy billing.
  • Overall increased efficiency with bookkeeping.
  • Great tool for creating estimates and tracking receipts.
