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.

Power BI For Office 365

Well-suited: In small-to-medium size businesses (SMB), Power BI is a wonderful solution. The speed to design and deploy a highly valuable solution makes it a fantastic selection for these businesses. Also, individual or small teams, even in large corporations, can benefit from it. Finally, accounting, finance, and business analysts are the "sweet-spot audience" for Power BI. Also, Power BI is great for designing prototypes or mockups of future enterprise capabilities.Less Appropriate: Information Technology team developing an enterprise analytics solution. Power BI is not intended to be an enterprise solution. Power BI is fully capable of handling millions of rows of data for analysis. However, in more complex analytical scenarios, where complex rules are incorporated into the data model over VERY LARGE sets of data (in particular, dimensional/structural data), the PowerPivot solution is not as strong. It is generally recommended that you upgrade to SQL Server Analysis Services for these scenarios.

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.

  • Beautiful visuals
  • Ease of use
  • Powerful data manipulation language

Cons

  • They need to better explain how to create definition files so end users can learn how to upload large amounts of data into the system. As of right now, most end users have to contact a consultant to create the definition file and pay literally thousands of dollars in order to do uploads.
  • The financial statement reports could be better. When I created the income statement, the profit is shown as a credit, while a loss is shown as a debit which makes it look funny for presentation purposes. I now have to key everything into Excel so it doesn't do this. The reports could be better if it allowed a way to add statistics to the report. Most FQHCs present stats like visits, Days Cash on Hand and so on. It would be nice to be able to have these stats shown in the financial statements.
  • MIP needs to allow for easier copying and pasting items into the fields. In the Budget module, you can't right click and paste. You need to select the "Edit" and then paste from the drop down menu.
Erich Koch profile photo
  • Well in general Microsoft support needs CPR.
  • There are bugs such as some items you'd think were allowed on the dashboard are not options however from reading they are continuing to improve these concerns/features.
  • Implementation can be finicky depending on how the current environment is configured.

It is a cheap way of exploring data and comes with the whole Office 2013 experience, including Sharepoint. For a new company, it is hard to find a better deal.

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 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.

Oracle was nice, super expensive to implement if it's not in use already. JobDiva is choppy and heavy on the system while does not give great reports. Salesforce is good; remote access is good however their support is terrible

With mobile integration and web access it's extremely convenient for mobile users and remote offices to utilize the tools. Again it is a cloud based product so the huge leverage here is being able to access it anywhere on any device. So sharing data to keep everyone knowledgeable is great. My clients haven't complained and are continuing to learn about the first roll out as they continue to learn the software.

Once the information is in the database updating is pretty smooth. I haven't heard of many complaints. Pulling for external sources appears to be working well with no serious issue. Again information is only as good as the source itself. I may get the occasional squeaky wheel on the data updates and accuracy. However overall the information is solid.

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

  • It has had a negative impact in that it remains too time consuming to get information that is needed out of the system.
  • It is not very intuitive in lending an easy way to figure out what types of reports to run and what information can be included.
  • Too many strange results are obtained when running trial balance reports. I get different results based on different date parameters.
Thomas Harty profile photo
  • 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.
