Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

Pros

  • The interface and operations of Abila MIP Fund are fairly easy to utilize and learn.
  • It offers some excellent tools for managing a non-profit operation.
  • The software makes it easy to streamline operations into one system without dealing with separate departments working with different systems.
Bruce Emmerling profile photo
  • Core accounting functionality is exceptional - for processing A/P, A/R, and G/L transactions, this product is the best mid-market solution available.
  • Reporting has improved significantly over the years. The product has many tools developed by Microsoft and in conjunction with accounting specific needs, such as SQL reporting services, smartlist builder, and Excel reporting.
  • The user-interface is user-friendly and easy to learn - very similar to other Microsoft products.

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 fact that the software is housed on internal servers could be seen as a "con". These days, moving to cloud-based solutions feels like the right move.
  • The reporting feature could use some updating.
  • Not sure if this is due to outside influences (our network), but the solution can run rather slow at times. It feels like it is slowed down the most when all users are currently active. Once again, this may be of no fault to MS Dynamics GP.
  • The ability to troubleshoot issues usually requires help from COSTLY independent consultants.

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

I have used QuickBooks Premier for Non-Profits in a previous job, but not at my current position. They have used MIP for several years prior to me coming on board. QuickBooks was much easier to learn, but I don't feel it has as much functionality as MIP does with the use of multiple federal and state managements and reporting
Tracie Lambright profile photo
The only product with have shopped was Sage Intacct. It is somewhat unfair to compare the two solutions, because Sage Intacct is a cloud-based solution. That said, Intacct appears to advertise better reporting/business intelligence capabilities. MS Dynamics GP should be aware that the market is filled with software that, at first glance, appears to be superior from a reporting standpoint.

Scalability

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.

The functionality that GP and related ISV solutions offer and the ease of integration of GP to other systems makes it an extremely scalable solution

Return on Investment

  • It has had a negative impact in that it remains too time consuming to get information that is needed out of the system.
  • It is not very intuitive in lending an easy way to figure out what types of reports to run and what information can be included.
  • Too many strange results are obtained when running trial balance reports. I get different results based on different date parameters.
Thomas Harty profile photo
  • Positive - consolidated financials save thousands annually
  • Negative - upgrades can be complicated and expensive. Plan for $20-$30k (or more) in time and materials from a reputable partner depending on the complexity of the upgrade and the size of your environment.
  • Positive - robust user community provides answers to many common questions, for free.
