Abila MIP Fund Accounting

It is perfect for non-profit fund and grant accounting. To have the flexibility with the GL Account segments is fabulous. Abila MIP is perfect for companies with many different departments or functions or grants. It would be less appropriate in a small business setting where things are straight forward.

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

  • Reporting - MIP is particularly strong in reporting. We have been able to create custom reports for all major funding sources, strong internal reports for senior management and the board of trustees, and detailed general ledger reports to ensure data is being accurately entered into the accounting system.
  • Accounts Payable/Receivable processing & reporting - MIP has allowed us to add efficiency to these 2 key areas of our department. The entering and reviewing of accounts payable has become easier, and we have significantly reduced the time it takes to file accounts payable invoices (invoices are now being filed by batch, previously they were being filed alphabetically, which took a significant amount of time). The accounts receivable process has been streamlined through MIP. Invoicing tenants, pledges and grants are setup as recurring invoices, which makes this process very easy on a monthly basis. Also, internal monitoring of outstanding accounts receivable has been improved due to MIP's ability to generate custom accounts receivable reports.
  • Copying sessions/setting up recurring entries - MIP allows you to copy previous sessions that have been posted into the accounting system. Being a non-profit, some of our allocation journal entries and other entries can be quite large. The ability to copy a session that has been previously posted saves us a significant amount of time. MIP also allows you to setup weekly/monthly recurring entries. Again, not having to manually enter these entries on a weekly/month basis saves us a significant amount of time.

  • Support for an Application server (file share) on a different server than the database server.

The technical support team is thorough, and understands accounting as well as technical issues. If a challenge arises, the issue is escalated. Although that has rarely happened.

Everyone is very responsive and is willing to jump on a call to help. We set up weekly calls with our CFL representative during the first month of Go-Live. This really helped us solve problems before they got out of hand. When using the Community, I also see representatives on there answering questions

I believe implementation went well because of the way training was setup. We started with a classroom setting to go thru all aspects of the software then practicing setup before going live.

Be sure you understand all the language in the initial contract as to what is included and what is not. The BRDD document although more detailed and also a signed document is not a contract and Host will not necessarily honor that document.Be sure your solutions architect has been with Host awhile and done numerous other implementations. The better qualified they are the better your implementation will go.Do you own homework, and be ready with your own documentation on process, what your proposed dimensions are and fields with the data to populate them.

Alternatives Considered

Abila MIP Fund Accounting was selected because of the reporting features.
Bob Jones profile photo
The cloud based aspect of Host makes it easier for multiple team members to be in the system at one time and see changes in real time without a lag. in prior experience with Oracle there has been a lag in the system to view changes made my other team members

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

  • We have been using the software for many years and it allows for full support of our business objectives.
  • QuickBooks is a joke when compared to a true accounting software solution like Abila MIP Fund Accounting.
Julie Johnston profile photo
  • Allows for more analysis of the data as opposed to preparation of the data, and allows us to see trends in data across all of our businesses at the touch of a couple of buttons.
  • Allows us to quantify our foreign exchange exposure which was not readily available before.
