Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Because I work in the FQHC world, I would recommend this product specifically for any business or end user within that field. This product allows people in this field to comply with federal reporting requirements, makes it easier to track grants, and allows for the slicing and dicing of financial statements in many ways which is important in this field. This product is good for most day to day accounting functions and is pretty robust as well for an FQHC. This product is probably less appropriate for large healthcare systems where you want to keep track of statistics which this product cannot currently do.

For a smaller business who isn't interested in having more than one user I think MYOB can serve them well. But if they want multiple users or are using virtual assistants there are better cloud based apps that are much more affordable and have far greater enhancements as well as integrations

Pros

  • I particularly like the copy/rename reports features. It allows the user to make slight changes to reports they may use frequently and save the report with a new name. This saves time when detailed reports are needed quickly.
  • I like the payroll function and the ability to allocate payroll between accounts rather than to calculate it manually.
  • I appreciate the recaps at the bottom of the AP & JV screens which show the accounts being referenced and whether the transaction is balance. It is a good double check.

Cons

  • You cannot put special characters into user defined fields, this will not allow payroll to process for an individual.
  • Cannot delete unused distribution codes.
  • Prompts to save a report every time there is a change, impractical.
  • HR module instruction manual is written poorly and missing steps, it's obvious this hasn't been written by the same developers, needs to be reviewed.

  • At the time there wasn't a cloud based option and it had to be hosted locally.
  • Some of the templates were harder to alter than they should have been.
  • I found the updates to be rather expensive as at times there didn't seem to be much enhancements.
  • Support was tricky and not always as responsive as I would have preferred.

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.

Support

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.

I was trained on the job by the person who implemented and had used it for 6 years prior to my employment. She was very knowledgeable, but didn't know all of the ins and outs, which is where I self taught.

MUST have a good partner to guide you through the set up steps. A seasoned organization is imperative. They can help navigate issues because they have dealt with them before.

Alternatives Considered

As mentioned earlier, we came from Community Pearl accounting/grant-making/fundraising. It did not allow for the multiple fund tracking like MIP does. We couldn't be happier.
Pat Chase profile photo
Not even close. Though I will say MYOB had a budget module where Zoho Books doesn't which is one thing severely lacking in Zoho Books. On the other hand, Zoho Books allows for payment processing integration without trying to get a cut from the process whereas MYOB allowed for payment processing but you had to go through their service only and it wasn't cheap.

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.

Return on Investment

  • Abila is generally user friendly and a reasonably priced package. From that standpoint it provides a good return on investment because it doesn't require significant additional investment (time or money) which would be diverting funds from core operational needs.
