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.

OSAS

I honestly think that it's extremely outdated and don't understand why anyone would still use it. Especially in a non-profit setting. In our field we have to be able to track revenue and expenses by funds, and with the way those funding streams tend to cross an agency or company's fiscal year, the fact that it is virtually impossible to pull the information in that manner restricts a finance department more than anything.

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.

  • No confusing reporting.
  • Easy to follow interface.
  • Simplified experience.

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.
Jessica Leffler profile photo
  • Not user-friendly or intuitive in the least. Even with the instruction manual, it's like part of it is missing or you are expected to know certain items before even looking.
  • Reporting is very basic and impossible to customize on the user's end. You must have tech support build them for you. Also, no cross fiscal year reporting.
  • Can't cut only one check if you have other invoices already entered in the batch.
  • The chart of account codes are not independent. You must build your whole GL for each fund source or program, which leaves you with an unwieldy chart of accounts.

Usability

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.

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 not had an opportunity to compare this system to others. I had no input in selecting this system. I would have liked to have compared it to other systems in terms of ease of use/intuitiveness, flexibility and granularity of report development, and capabilities in dealing with prior year adjustments and their effect on trial balance reporting. On those counts, I do not think the system scores very high

If you've used CYMA, you'll be familiar with the way OSAS builds the GL, however CYMA is light years ahead of OSAS. If you've used anything like Abila MIP, you'll understand the comparison when I say "Abila is like using power tools to build your bookcase, CYMA is like using a hand saw and hammer, and OSAS is using a chisel to carve one out of wood." They all will get the job done and at the end of the day, you have a book case. But depending on which tools you use will either be ready for a library or a couple of small tomes. I didn't select OSAS, and never would it have been given consideration to be used as my accounting software

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.0
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

  • A lot of time saving on processes. With the addition of the import feature it has cut our data entry in half.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • We have to do so much tracking of expenses by hand, that using OSAS doesn't save us any money in that respect.
  • I believe my predecessor used OSAS for over 15 years so she obviously felt comfortable with it. I can make do with it and at least track my bottom line.
  • No real reporting other than basic balance sheets.
