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.

It is great for a small company or sole proprietorship. It is simple and easy and allows you to do your bookkeeping without taking too much of your time. It would not be ideal for a company that needs to track inventory.

Pros

  • The flexibility of segment reporting allows us to generate detailed cost structures for multiple federal programs in a very efficient manner. This allows for effective and efficient on time reporting to funders.
  • The importing features allow for very efficient entry of high volume journal entries that also minimize mistakes.

  • Invoicing - I can create an invoice and email it directly from within Kashoo. When a payment is received, it is simple to enter the transaction and mark it as paid.
  • Projects - I can assign a Project to a transaction. This way I can get a detailed picture of a specific project on which we are working. I can run a P&L report of just that project or the whole company.
  • Reconcile - Reconciling is a snap when you connect the account to the bank online.
  • If you are doing bookkeeping for more than one company, Kashoo has support for that. You can easily switch between companies as needed.

Cons

  • The interface is not very user friendly. It can be daunting or intimidating for users who may not have knowledge of accounting software.
  • I feel that if Drillpoint reports can be integrated with the Scheduler Module, it would make reporting and data manipulation even better.
Donavan Lam, CPA profile photo
  • If a credit card has multiple cards associated with it, for example, several employees have cards that link to the main account, Kashoo does not have a way to track those cards individually yet still associate it to the main parent account. To be fair, I have not found a bookkeeping software that does this properly.
  • The transaction search is a little funky. Sometimes I have to type in the complete word to find something, otherwise, it won't display the results I expect. I have only had this issue a few times, but it consistently happens for those specific searches.
  • Kashoo does not track inventory.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
It is a great software to use but it can still improve in some areas. Like if they could add spelling check function. Most software this day has spelling check as a standard function. Maybe if they could also expand the filters available when running custom reports would be very helpful

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

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.

Kashoo works well and has all the features I need. Wave does not allow for reconciliation and does not do reporting. QuickBooks Online is very expensive and does not have all the features that Kashoo has.

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.
