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.

Harvest

I think that if one is trying to ascertain how much time is being spent on particular broad projects or clients, Harvest can be useful. However, I would prefer a tool that proactively asks me for information about what I'm working on, and one that allows for time tracking outside of specific projects.

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.

  • Connectors with other tools like asana and google calendar
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Sometimes pulling reports or building the reports to give you the results you want is difficult to achieve.
  • Creating budgets was a challenge at first as was updating those budgets when revisions occur.
  • We would like to see a copy and paste function added so when entering or changing descriptions you don't have to continually keep typing them over and over.

  • As a sole user there is no prompt to enter in the time, a feature only available for multiple users.
  • Better functionality for sole users.
  • Would like to view/print a live job list (maybe you can).

Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

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

As mentioned earlier, we came from Community Pearl accounting/grant-making/fundraising. It did not allow for the multiple fund tracking like MIP does. We couldn't be happier.

Basecamp, we used to have Basecamp. But Harvest+Asana made our decision making easier. We tried with Wrike but the user interface is not aseasy as is looks. Harvest has our problems resolved by now with simple steps that make this tool work for us. Other tools that could help to make this one better could be something with resources allocation.

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

  • This is a question for our accountant and president. What I do know is that it allows us to increase our "donor advised funds" and offer that as a means for individuals to contribute to our cause.
Pat Chase profile photo
  • Easier to keep track of fee/free work so better understanding of efficiency
  • It does take time/commitment to fill in though, so only useful if done regularly.
