Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

I believe Abila is suited for organizations that have complex funding structures. Especially those organizations who have multiple funding sources with agencies that require different expense coding to ensure expenses are properly classified. I think Abila is not appropriate for small organizations whose chart of accounts may be less complex in addition to a lower operating budget.

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.

Cons

  • Flexibility in the designing and creating of financial reports is non existent.
  • The posting of prior year entries is very non intuitive and has resulted in strange numbers when running trial balance reports.
  • It has the problem of indicating a prior logging in by a user that is still active when that user is not active requiring me to constantly log in as administrator and manually delete the log in status.
  • Too many different types of report options with different fields of information that can be reported on renders it confusing when trying to decide how to get data out of the system.
Thomas Harty profile photo
  • The automatic expense management is basic. It does sync with banks, but I've had some duplicate entry issues that are being worked out of the system.
  • I'd like to see additional reports that dive deeper into some of the dashboard widgets.

Usability

MIP is fairly easy to learn and to update. Whether it's transaction entry or reporting it has logical steps and maintains consistency. These are things that make usability a positive and not a negative.

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

Based on 21 answers
Again, I was not directly involved with the planning and setup of the software. However, I was involved in training my staff during the implementation phase. As with any software implementation, consistency of training is key and a willingness to seek out help from Customer Support helps tremendously to insure accuracy of information and training.

Alternatives Considered

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've used Less Accounting and & Quickbooks Online. After Less Accounting was acquired, its development was mostly stopped. While the tool was a simple way to manage invoices and expenses, its directional philosophy changed with the new owners. Quickbooks Online was a solid tool, but the company support was unhelpful and hard to work with at times. Harpoon provides a great tool, with a company that cares about its users.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.0
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.

Return on Investment

  • A lot of time saving on processes. With the addition of the import feature it has cut our data entry in half.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • Clear and precise visibility of my financial status.
  • Projections of how I'm doing today, this month, and this year.
  • Clarity on what needs to happen with client development to reach my goals.
  • It shrinks the amount of time I spend on getting clients to pay my invoices.
