Pros

  • Data conversion from our previous system to Abila MIP Fund Accounting was made as seamlessly as possible. We were able to successfully integrate without trouble and leaving us with continuity in our data.
  • The help that we received in developing SOPs for our growing organization proved difficult prior to using the help from Abila MIP. Once we were up and running with the service we got what we needed and were able to make our organization's procedures as ordered as a larger and more established company would have.
  • The ability to see where our funds would most effectively be spent helped us utilize them so that we could make best use four our investors.

  • Makes Sending Invoices & Collecting Payment Easy, for Freelancers
  • Tracking Financial Goals (Monthly & Annual) & Projecting Future Results
  • Provides Insights On AR, Earned Income, Top Clients, and other helpful but highly relevant data points.

Cons

  • Understanding the permissions assigned to employees got confusing at times.
Brandon Adawi 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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
If you are not an accountant, it would be very difficult to use. As an accountant there are aspects that are so specific that if you do not understand how they work and hand off to other parts of the software, you can really mess up your reporting.

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

GMS was not 2000 compliant. Fundware was sold and went out of business. A number of peers in related organizations used MIP and recommended it. This is helpful when you have a problem or a desire to try something new, and can sound it off of others that are familiar with product and the programs you run.

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 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.

Return on Investment

  • As a non-profit, our main business objectives are to stay within regulations so that we may be paid by our funders and continue to contract with them..MIP allows us to track information to assist in this objective.
  • Cash management is very important, since we are often paid in arrears. MIP helps us track cash and outstanding program balances.
Kathy Dugan 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.
