Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila MIP Fund Accounting is well suited for nonprofits that need to do financial reporting by cost center. It is also well suited for financial reporting that crosses fiscal years (such as foundation grants).The basic Abila Fund Accounting package does not appear well suited for electronic bill payment. The Budget module does not offer the flexibility of an Excel-based budgeting and projection system.

It is well suited for companies not willing to spend much money on an expense app and who are moving off of antiquated software or spreadsheets. However, there are far better alternatives in the market.

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.

  • It is easy to submit expenses.
  • It is easy to view past expenses and where they are in the process.
  • It is (relatively) to attach receipts and other expense verification.

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
  • It is not very intuitive how to use it at times. Fellow coworkers (less tech savvy) have had trouble submitting expenses on the desktop version.
  • The "image bin" for expenses is not intuitive/difficult to use.
  • The application could be smarter/connect to other applications such as Concur.

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.

Implementation

I highly recommend using a business partner for implementation. The business partners have implemented this product for numerous years and have a wealth of knowledge from working with various non profits and governmental entities. Some are close by and can provide on site training.

Alternatives Considered

This is the first non-profit I have worked for and I am fortunate they chose to use Abila. My previous account experience with a for-profit industry I used MAS 200. While the two systems have some of the similar appearances and functionalities, Abila is easier to use with multiple programs. I can't compare the two side by side as I use Abila in a much broader spectrum and I am unaware if MAS offers like-features.

It is not as user-friendly as these other options but is also cheaper.
