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.

Cost of the product is primarily subscription based, which is better for being able to budget for. Add a new administrator user? No extra cost.It is web based, and accessible to grant applicants, students, counselors and committee members.The vendor provides competent support and implementation specialists. Data is able to be uploaded to the enterprise system to create checks for the awardees.

Pros

  • The flexibility of segment reporting allows us to generate detailed cost structures for multiple federal programs in a very efficient manner. This allows for effective and efficient on time reporting to funders.
  • The importing features allow for very efficient entry of high volume journal entries that also minimize mistakes.

  • Single Point of Entry for Grantees looking for grant opportunities

Cons

  • The Fixed Assets module is somewhat difficult to use with respect to disposals
  • In A/R posted transactions there is no dollar amount posted
  • When requesting posted transactions, all items appear, not just the one being requested
  • A/P vendor history displays in date order by clicking the tab at the top of the column. However, a printed version does not come out in date order
  • We have had problems matching the A/R aging report to the General Ledger
  • The drill-down feature should be expanded to areas other than financial statements
Robert Bowsza profile photo
  • Allowing duplicate email addresses for both grantee and reviewers
  • Grants for Individuals - allowing us to manipulate the create profile template so it's not just based on nonprofits.

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.

The decision to choose Grant Lifecycle Manager was made before I began in this position, but we have renewed our license because we were so happy with the service

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
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.
