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.

Perfect for a SME, less so for larger companies with a lot of staff. A reliable application, with few outages and easy to learn how to use for a variety of staff in different positions. Mobile phone app has been bit of a disappointment. Management reporting functionality could be improved.

Cons

  • Reports could be more functional - have the ability to have both GLs and check numbers on reports
  • Some issues with license validation at random the software will decide not to work
  • Addition of new features more often
  • Add address verification support like ADP. ADP can verify addresses without having to google.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • Can be difficult to find information within the application.
  • Some of the reporting functionality is weak.
  • Functionality for financial planning could be significantly improved upon.

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.

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.

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.
Kayla Klinger profile photo
We received an offer for a discounted license for initial use and pretty much got so used to Kashflow, that we have continued with it. There are some frustrations with it, in particular the ability to search and find information. The reporting functionality is also a bit of a disappointment. However, easy for day to day use for the staff and just about sufficient for monthly planning. Some of the integrations like Payroll are not bad.

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.
