Abila MIP Fund Accounting

It is perfect for non-profit fund and grant accounting. To have the flexibility with the GL Account segments is fabulous. Abila MIP is perfect for companies with many different departments or functions or grants. It would be less appropriate in a small business setting where things are straight forward.

PaySimple

Pay Simple is great for any business that takes ACH payments - especially recurring ones. If it's for more of a membership type program, I would think this is less appropriate. It's a great product that gets the job done. While some aspects may be a little confusing to navigate when making changes, their Customer Support really brings everything together. They are very quick to respond, so if you are left wondering how to accomplish something within the portal, you aren't left wondering for long.

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.

  • Their Support is very responsive and helpful. Any time that I have had trouble understanding an email I received from Pay Simple or how to update something on an invoice, I have used the chat feature. The agents are quick and provide great step by step instructions to assist. If they did not have a solution, they assured me it would be submitted as a request to development or let me know when it would be coming.
  • I love the ease of initially beginning/charging a payment (either one time or recurring). It is not time-consuming and is very straightforward which is helpful when entering multiple new payments a day. Everything I need to enter a new payment is directly on the home screen and easy to find.
  • I appreciate the clean layout of the homepage.

Cons

  • I wish it was a little simpler to reverse a single invoice during the AP void check process.
  • In the payroll system improved reporting, being able to pull information from both the employee profile and the payroll system would be appreciated.
  • The ability to hide discontinued vendors from selection lists. As well as some way to improve vendor id conventions.

  • Recurring payments should be simpler to use

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

PaySimple feels a bit more comprehensive of a solution. The timing of invoice processing feels quicker and the bank level encryption feels more secure.

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

  • Staff time - MIP has allowed us to save a significant amount of staff hours by by changing the way we process transactions (i.e. accounts payable process, accounts receivable process, recurring entries, copying posted sessions - as previously mentioned).
  • Grant reporting - MIP has allowed us to customize reporting for all major funding sources. This has allowed us to meet deadlines set by our grantors, submit reports more timely and increase cash flow as a result of tracking accounts receivables and drawing down funds quicker.
  • Internal reporting - MIP has helped with internal reporting to senior management, other departments and the board of trustees, which has helped other departments accomplish their goals and targets.
Tamour Kousha profile photo
  • We've significantly cut down on invoice follow-up and payment times. This means better cash flow. We saw results within two months of implementing the payment system.
  • We were able to massively streamline payment collections for a low dollar service. It's taken a service that we were losing money on (in terms of follow-up time for payments) and made it profitable again within a few months.
