Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Reporting is leaps and bounds above Quickbooks. Additionally, having the segregation of duties and being able to define what each user is able to access is incredibly helpful.

Pros

  • The vast array of account segmenting allows us to break down our business in many different ways, which gets us the information we need to make sure we are doing business right.
  • We love the ability to process vendor EFT payments, which fits our green thinking and saves lots of paper.
  • Having a cloud based platform allows us to work more efficiently and not have to worry about using the most recent version or keeping up with payroll updates.
Eric Harvey profile photo
  • Reporting - We are able to build custom reports that drive decisions from above.
  • Project driven expenses - We are able to see the spend on a project basis and break it down by department to further determine the extent of each department's impact on each project.
  • Separation of entities - We have three entities that roll up into one for reporting. We are able to review expenses for each specific entity and track them separately.

Cons

  • It would be nice to switch between databases without having to logout and login.
  • When entering codes (like for a journal entry) it doesn't auto-search/fill the account numbers...you have to hit the dropdown and scroll for the number.
  • You can't post cash receipts without first having an invoice, which can slow down your processing.
Eric Harvey profile photo
  • The bank reconciliation feature is very outdated and cumbersome.
  • The report writer would be nice if it was a little more user-friendly.

Based on 38 answers
Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

We will continue to use Intacct internally and refer it to our clients that will mesh with their industries because it is a proven solution that works. It keeps employees efficient and uses their time to construct accurate financials with the correct level of controls.

Usability

Based on 34 answers
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.

The training is designed for implementing intacct as opposed to utilizing intacct. I think that both are necessary to learn, but wish there was continued training for using it once Intacct is in place for the users.

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

Fund EZ is a product I found out about from a previous employment stint. It has a lot of the features MIP has but is not nearly as good. I would consider using this product if MIP continues to raise fees.

Sage Intacct is far above QuickBooks with it's cloud capabilities, syncing with other apps, etc. It is a far superior product in my opinion.

Scalability

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

  • Having all the modules in one convenient place has saved our company money as well as time.
  • Our finance team is much more efficient because of the combined modules, its a one-stop shop!
  • One negative impact is how long it takes someone to be trained to use the software effectively and efficiently.
Tracie Lambright profile photo
  • Reporting is quick and easy. We have 1 person in AP processing 2,000 invoices per month.
  • The entry duplication feature is a huge time saver for large volume entries each month. Same goes for reversal entries - couldn't work without those now.
  • The majority of the implementation was done by the finance group with very little assistance from the IT group. Cloud-based is definitely the way to go for small-medium sized businesses.
