Abila MIP Fund Accounting

The product is really well suited for small to medium non-profit organizations and other types of operations. Its features might not be as applicable for commercial businesses or large organizations. Some organizations may want to weight its fees and costs when choosing the product. Overall its features are well integrated and quite useful for organizations that may not need a more complex accounting product.

Power BI For Office 365

If you're already using Office 365, Power BI for O365 is an easy choice. Start playing around with the free version and then easily add individual Pro licenses with little risk. However, if you anticipate using this with many users, it can get expensive quickly.

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
  • Data visualization - it's easy for users to visualize data using many built-in controls.
  • Distributing reports and dashboards and delivering in real time on the web. Reports can be updated in real-time and display updated results automatically to decision makers.
  • Pulling data from diverse data sources. Data can be pulled from a wide variety of databases, even flat-file text.

Cons

  • Flexibility in the designing and creating of financial reports is non existent.
  • The posting of prior year entries is very non intuitive and has resulted in strange numbers when running trial balance reports.
  • It has the problem of indicating a prior logging in by a user that is still active when that user is not active requiring me to constantly log in as administrator and manually delete the log in status.
  • Too many different types of report options with different fields of information that can be reported on renders it confusing when trying to decide how to get data out of the system.
Thomas Harty profile photo
  • Once a report uses a Pro feature, it needs a Pro license, but a lot of these are just basic features and the users are just viewing and not using any of the advanced features. It would be nice to have a Pro / Viewing license and Pro / Interacting license.
  • Limited amount of refreshes per 24 hours period. 5 refreshes as of Dec 2018.
  • The emailing of reports is there but kind of basic. It will do a screen grab of a report, which doesn't turn out very well.

If I were a small business owner, I would likely use Power BI for Office 365 for the sheer fact that I would get the Office licensing I need, along with powerful capabilities. As a Microsoft Partner, we continue to see Microsoft invest heavily in the Power BI capabilities, and will continue to implement and support BI solutions around this product, as we believe this is in the best interest of our clients.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.4
Based on 39 answers
Overall, the software has many useful features and is generally east to use, however, when the Data Integrity Check function identifies a problem, it is not clear what caused the problem (so we can avoid making the same error in the future) and it requires us to call Customer Support to resolve the problem. This last step is unnecessarily time consuming.

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

Tableau Desktop is a more mature product with more features but the price is what has stopped me going down this path.

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

  • Reduced errors in payroll and accounting.
  • Solidified a workflow from one department to the next. In government you may have different departments handling different aspects of the accounting process and Abila can be customized it so that there is seamless integration from beginning to end.
  • Saved us money from having to hire additional part time employees during tax season.

  • It's allowed us to better visualize large amounts of data.
  • It's an easy way to tie into an existing SQL database for users that don't know SQL.
