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.

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

  • Importing doesn't always work so great. Many times our numbers add up correctly and equal out on the spreadsheet, but we can't import due to an error of debits and credits not matching.
  • While the reporting functionality is great in its expanse, sometimes having to run a report for everything or try to play with all the customization options in order to get what you need is cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Not being able to turn off the auto-fill option can cause a detriment occasionally as codes that are similar may get missed during validation.
Jessica Leffler 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.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 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.

Support

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.4
Based on 30 answers
We have been financially challenged in the last few years and we have always renewed our support contract, even if it was a financial stretch. The fact that Abilia has been flexible in their renewal accommodation has been greatly appreciated. Every single time we have needed help, it has been effective and efficiently delivered. The service team has worked well with our all skill levels of our staff and I have only heard positive outcomes in our 15 years. Never a bad outcome. I would say this an achievement Abila should be very proud of.

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

Based on 19 answers
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

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.
Christine Frenzel 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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
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.
