Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Because I work in the FQHC world, I would recommend this product specifically for any business or end user within that field. This product allows people in this field to comply with federal reporting requirements, makes it easier to track grants, and allows for the slicing and dicing of financial statements in many ways which is important in this field. This product is good for most day to day accounting functions and is pretty robust as well for an FQHC. This product is probably less appropriate for large healthcare systems where you want to keep track of statistics which this product cannot currently do.

If you work on a project by project basis and need to evaluate the profitability of projects that are billed cost plus, time and materials, retainer, hourly, or whatever, it's great.

Pros

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • It allows you to create folders in which you can scan invoices, business associate contracts, and contracts in general by vendor. This allows us to keep everything in one place digitally. The good thing about this is that it speeds up finding old invoices, and allows you to send audit selections to the auditor faster due to the items selected already being scanned in digitally.
  • MIP allows for the creation of distribution codes. These are nice as they allow you to charge out common costs to multiple departments in a quick manner. Without this feature, one has to key in manually many line items into the system each and every month. Plus this feature allows for consistency, and elimination of keying errors.
  • If you have the Chart of Accounts set up properly, this system allows you to better track items by departments, Revenue/Fund codes, Location, and by GL. This is important as it allows for better analysis, tracking and reporting.
  • As for the budgeting module, this is also nice as you have the ability to upload your budget via a CSV file or you can manually cut and paste your numbers from excel into the system as well. The key thing though is setting up your budget template to match the format in MIP when cutting and pasting.

  • Harvest is great for tracking time and putting a certain amount of time into a certain project or task.
  • Having the desktop app to Harvest makes it easy to start and stop projects without having to log in to the website.

Cons

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • 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

Harvest

  • Their pricing is pretty expensive.
  • It doesn't integrate with many products (outside of Basecamp from what we know of).
  • They don't allow for people to be admins for specific clients, it's all or nothing.

Usability

Based on 39 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.

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 MIP Fund Accounting

Fund EZ is a product I found out about from a previous employment stint. It has a lot of the features MIP has but is not nearly as good. I would consider using this product if MIP continues to raise fees.

I looked at many different products at the time, but I liked the way the timesheet and job list worked best on Harvest, the others were trying to be too cool, or too complex.

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • 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

Harvest

  • Big ROI with no changes in people or time spent. Just good tracking
  • Hard to adopt for IT individuals who work in cycles that are not based around 'time'
  • Super easy to have a consultant build API connectors and custom integrations.
