Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

The product is really well suited for small to medium non-profit organizations and other types of operations. Its features might not be as applicable for commercial businesses or large organizations. Some organizations may want to weight its fees and costs when choosing the product. Overall its features are well integrated and quite useful for organizations that may not need a more complex accounting product.

Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite is well suited for financial planning and management reporting. The dynamic cloud based capabilities make it very useful in those instances. A scenario when it may be less appropriate is for financial reporting done by the accounting team as that requires linkage to invoicing and purchasing system.

Pros

  • The interface and operations of Abila MIP Fund are fairly easy to utilize and learn.
  • It offers some excellent tools for managing a non-profit operation.
  • The software makes it easy to streamline operations into one system without dealing with separate departments working with different systems.

  • Reporting - The dynamic reporting is easy to use and roll out. The Report Collections capability is fantastic and we use this functionality for pushing out reports to users and our own analysis. The new enhancement that allows us to schedule these jobs makes our jobs that much easier.
  • Boomi Tool - This tool allows us to load actuals from our SAP system directly to Host Analytics on a scheduled timeframe without any manual intervention from us. Currently we load actuals into Host every night, and on the hour during the first two days of our close process. This keeps Host relevant and up to date. It is a seamless process.
  • Plan consolidation - In SAP it took 4 hours just to consolidate. IF we found an error we wasted another 4 hours. In Host consolidation is within a matter of minutes. Huge benefit over SAP.

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.
Tracie Lambright profile photo
  • Business Analytics Reporting - Difficult to use and training is not sufficient for understanding how to write these types of reports. Compared to their Dynamic reporting functionality it doesn't even come close from an administration / report writer view.
  • Headcount/FTE Reporting - This is a simple and required function. Host should be able to report on this without workarounds. We don't want to sum FTE's to get number of FTE's for Qtr, Year etc. All clients use / want an easy way to report this and Host is lacking in this area.
  • Initiatives - You have the ability to enter capital into your initiative (Project) templates but this doesn't flow into the capital planning templates. So if you enter in the initiative you also have to enter into the capital module. Double work and not productive. The expenses for initiatives flow into the planning module so they should have consistency in their application with the capital piece. We have chosen not to use capital in the initiative templates due to having to enter it twice. This needs to be corrected.

We will renew. The system has lived up to its expectations. Although we want additional functionality (and they are working on it) we are 100 times better than we were on Excel.

Usability

It is a great software to use but it can still improve in some areas. Like if they could add spelling check function. Most software this day has spelling check as a standard function. Maybe if they could also expand the filters available when running custom reports would be very helpful

The software from Host Analytics is very easy to use. One of the reasons we chose this software is because it has the look and feel of Excel and we knew our users would come up to speed very quickly. The FP&A staff adapted quickly and we got the product up and running for our forecasting in very short order.

We rarely have support issues but when we do, the support team at Host Analytics responds in a very timely manner. I've never felt out of the loop and have never had any issue with getting a problem resolved. Information is continually given as to the status of a case and what is being accomplished. Their customer support is very impressive.

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.

There were no records available to indicate where accounts with balances needed reversing entries. This problem carried forward for several years until it was traced back to implementation and reversed.

We now use a partner for any needs we have with Host Analytics. I would recommend using a partner as they are able to provide a wider area of expertise accross multiple platforms and solutions.

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.

Overall we thought that Host fit our company better than Adaptive. We thought the tools that it had to offer were better. In addition, we liked the sales pitch better than Adaptive.

Return on Investment

  • I was not part of the decision making process. I do not know the overall business objective.
  • One must be very experienced working with integrated financial systems to get the best use of this software.
Christine Frenzel profile photo
  • Host has saved me a lot of time at month end. Time is something of which there is never enough.
  • Host has raised our ability to use our product margin data to a higher level.
