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.

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
  • User friendly interface
  • Able to be extended into multiple areas of your business
  • One feature we have been using for a few years is EFT for payables - it has significantly reduced the time spent paying vendors and reduced our check printing and mailing costs. It is very easy to setup and use.

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
  • search functionality could be improved within native GP functionality - we use Rockton Smartfill to improve search capabilities.

We have had problems with MIP's ability to integrate with other software or systems. Just makes for a longer shopping time when searching for products we need to integrate with MIP

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

When we purchased Abila MIP Fund Accounting software, we had looked at several other options. However, none of the other options allowed the flexibility that Abila MIP had. It also helps that Abila MIP Fund Accounting software is designed specifically for the non-profit sector. It was an easy choice when we laid out all the options.

TechSoup had great privcing, I had experince with GP in previous companys and there are a lot of staff accountants who have relevant experience.

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

  • Hard to quantify the return on investment. Purchasing accounting software is a necessary evil and the payback is hard to measure. Basically MIP is another expense we incur each month in order to keep our books. If MIP could add some better features to its system, there could be a better ROI.
  • I think if you have MIP set up properly you could probably eliminate an FTE from your accounting department. I was able to get by with 2 people when most places would of had 3 or 4 with the same amount of work. The key though is knowing how to use the product, and setting it up correctly.
Erich Koch profile photo
  • We were running 2 separate accounting systems. One for our e-commerce platform and one for everything else. By choosing GP and integrating our e-commerce platform, we now have a clear picture of our finances that we did not have before.
