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

  • Abila reporting allows for many levels of detail, from including funding, gl, taxonomy, location, or just looking at location, or by gl, or by taxonomy. It allows you to look at reports from many perspectives. Its a strength for management to have usable information.
  • I like the way you can change the dates specific types of entries are allowed. Its a strength as you are closing grants and years so that you know something you reconciled will not suddenly change. You can go back and make it available again if needed.
  • I really like the Session Manager feature. To be able to completely reverse a session is so quick and easy. But there is still the audit trail. Has saved an enormous amount of data entry when trying to correct a misposting.

  • Easy Deployment - since the infrastructure is all in place and doesn't need coordination between internal teams in installing servers or providing background support from relational database personnel.
  • Open access - users don't have to be connected to the VPN if they have to finish some work real quick.
  • Less administrative work for admins on managing and setting Essbase properties etc.. for optimization.

Cons

  • Importing doesn't always work so great. Many times our numbers add up correctly and equal out on the spreadsheet, but we can't import due to an error of debits and credits not matching.
  • While the reporting functionality is great in its expanse, sometimes having to run a report for everything or try to play with all the customization options in order to get what you need is cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Not being able to turn off the auto-fill option can cause a detriment occasionally as codes that are similar may get missed during validation.

  • More flexibility within the frameworks
  • Transparency in performance optimization
  • More flexible migration options to exclude cubes in prod.

Likelihood to Renew

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.8
Based on 35 answers
Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

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

Support

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.4
Based on 30 answers
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.

Implementation

Abila MIP Fund Accounting6.9
Based on 19 answers
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

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.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
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.

Return on Investment

  • I was not part of the decision making process. I do not know the overall business objective.
  • One must be very experienced working with integrated financial systems to get the best use of this software.
Christine Frenzel profile photo
  • It is easy to bring the app according to the needs of the users. The user community maintains the app by themselves now.
