Abila MIP Fund Accounting

With Abila MIP's versatility I think it would be well suited for any industry, but especially for any industry where you wanted to be very specific on tracking or cost accounting. The ability to segment your accounts allows you to track by just about any method you would like to be successful.

I would recommend, provided accounts payable will be running on their own system. SunSystems doesn't seem to work well for AP and/or purchasing.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Integration options are very good. We are able to import data in a number of ways and extract data as well. The use of their built in API for data validation, extraction and entry is working very well for us.

Cons

  • 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

  • Stability seems to be an issue. Installing patches almost always seem to fix some things and break others.

Usability

When MIP is not available because of computer challenges my team freezes. They rely that heavily on it on a regular basis. It is the foundation of our entire cash management, budgeting, our entire finance accountability system. It is the go to for data to track vendors, use, customers over the last 15 years. It is one of the key bricks in our business management foundation. It has never let us down.

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.

MUST have a good partner to guide you through the set up steps. A seasoned organization is imperative. They can help navigate issues because they have dealt with them before.

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.

Return on Investment

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
