Abila MIP Fund Accounting

I feel that any accounting office in a non-profit setting would benefit from MIP. I used it in a former position as senior accountant for a community action agency for over 6 years and recommended it to the VP of Finance and our COO when I came to the clinic last year. After researching, they both agreed it would better suit our needs than the software we were using. MIP really understands what non-profits need when it comes to tracking financials and all the different scenarios funders have when it comes to what they want to see and gets the job well in hand.

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

  • Number one: independent account code segments. Unlike certain other systems, with Abilia MIP Fund Accounting, you can add a new grant or fund source at any time and parent off of an existing, similar one. You don't have create cumbersome account codes for every GL you might need, as as it will work with those you have set up.
  • Running reports with un-posted items included. If you are like us and may need to enter your expenses, but perhaps not quite cut the check yet, however, need to run a statement of revenue and expenditures showing all expenses thus far, being able to include those un-posted items is tremendously helpful. It's also great if you see that you need to correct something with a journal entry. After you enter it, you can run the report to ensure it was what was actually needed BEFORE posting.
  • It is a system that becomes very intuitive to you once you dig in. There is a logic to many of the reports and functionalities that seem to be overlooked in other systems.

  • 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

  • The Budget Worksheet isn't the simplest to use and understand how the outcome will reflect. It took me some trial and error, and writing my own in-house procedures to feel comfortable with the budget worksheets.
  • There are so many modules that Abila offers that it can be frustrating to learn that in order to obtain a certain feature you have to purchase another module, which may come with way more than you need or want. For example, with the Payroll Module you can select Direct Deposit for an employee but without the Direct Deposit module I can't access the feature to email the pay stub vouchers to those employees with Direct Deposit.
  • There are so many reports available that it can be hard to remember where the report you need is located. Some reports don't include Unposted Transactions and some don't allow the same level of customization.

  • 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.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.7
Based on 34 answers
If you are not an accountant, it would be very difficult to use. As an accountant there are aspects that are so specific that if you do not understand how they work and hand off to other parts of the software, you can really mess up your reporting.

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

We looked at two other software products and they just couldn't track the separate funding sources the way we needed them too. It was going to be a lot of exporting and backtracking to get the right information (at that time). And Blackbaud just didn't seem to have enough "oomph" to be what we needed with the volume of transactions we have.

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

Scalability

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.

  • It has drastically reduced the amount of time it takes me to submit expenses.
  • It has improved the speed that my expenses get approved and I get paid back.
