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.

Great if you have a lot of interconnection between departments and need to break up invoices amoung several cost centers.

It's not helpful if you have multiple people on a team who track a budget because only one person can access the information.

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
  • Great for splitting invoices amoung multiple department cost centers
  • Good for security reasons since you can only see the invoices you have keyed in

Cons

  • I wish it was a little simpler to reverse a single invoice during the AP void check process.
  • In the payroll system improved reporting, being able to pull information from both the employee profile and the payroll system would be appreciated.
  • The ability to hide discontinued vendors from selection lists. As well as some way to improve vendor id conventions.

MIP is fairly easy to learn and to update. Whether it's transaction entry or reporting it has logical steps and maintains consistency. These are things that make usability a positive and not a negative.

Some integration and high volume ramping challenges, particularly with BizTalk and SQL Server, but getting sorted out. Outages over time appeared to be more dependent on integration complexity than AX MES.

Our reseller and the MIP technical support team has been very reactive when questions or problems have arisen. The reseller has been especially helpful in figuring what to do about entry problems.

Microsoft did a reasonably good job supporting the deployment efforts to multiple factories and ongoing stabilization. I don't think that MES was intended for the large enterprise volume and complexity levels our operations required.

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

I believe implementation went well because of the way training was setup. We started with a classroom setting to go thru all aspects of the software then practicing setup before going live.

Users in some cases were busy and not engaged, so those areas went slower. Configuration by the consultants was good, but at time complicated.

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.

Return on Investment

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • Microsoft Dynamics AX helped us to get data faster then with our old ERP
  • Microsoft Dynamics AX's ability on getting reports might need to improve
  • Getting data cross-department is not that easy, i.e., we want to exclude sales tax in the credit hold report from a Sales Department's point of view.
