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.

If you are handling a large client list, and are selling services, it is dead easy. If you are managing/selling a physical inventory, it seems like it has great options to do that quite well (disclaimer, I do not use those functions, but I have paid attention as that functionality was built into the software). If you want to link your bank account to a bookkeeping platform, this is not the software for you (at least so far).

Pros

  • The flexibility of segment reporting allows us to generate detailed cost structures for multiple federal programs in a very efficient manner. This allows for effective and efficient on time reporting to funders.
  • The importing features allow for very efficient entry of high volume journal entries that also minimize mistakes.

  • Job Coding - Forget having a set of books for each venture a client undertakes. Merge them all together and use the Job Coding to keep them separate.
  • Sorting - It is extremely helpful to be able to view the Bank Register window by Name, Account, Amount, etc. I can quickly sort by Name and see the last time I paid someone or by Account to see if everything looks correct.
  • Reconciling Statements - Being able to view by Debits or Credits allows you to quickly find the amount. Also, genius idea to have the items you mark instantly have a blue background which allows your eye to quickly scan the remaining numbers.

Cons

  • Understanding the permissions assigned to employees got confusing at times.
Brandon Adawi profile photo
  • There are no integration options for printing shipping labels. It would be a useful feature to provide so that small companies that are using the product for the entire order-placing process would no longer need to use a second program to print labels.
  • The user interface is simple to use, but is very outdated. AccountEdge could use a make-over.
  • As far as Inventory Control goes, the system is very basic. It would be nice to see some improvements that allow for better manageability of inventory levels for a retail company.

Overall, AccountEdge has been a great program for our small business. It allows us to bring all of our applications together into one, easy-to-use program. Our employee efficiency has increased as a result of AccountEdge's user-friendly interface, and in the long-run this has saved us money. We have been able to better create sales, monitor inventory, balance accounts, and manage our people since we began using AccountEdge and I would highly recommend this program to all other small-businesses.

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.

AccountEdge Pro & Basic is laid out in easy to use centers which compartmentalize a users needs based on departments. Along with that one can set up recurring transactions for things that repeat daily through annually and anything in between. You can set a preference for automatic posting or a user specific reminder to post the action

One of the finer advantages of desktop software, it's always available. AccountEdge doesn't suffer from outages or sluggish internet like web based applications do. It's always there when you power on your device!

I had to call support for an issue I was having to reverse a batch that was posted by mistake. The support lady was really helpful in guiding me to the correct steps in resolving my issue. I felt very confident in knowing I can call them to resolve my issues

Rarely do we get support due to it costing money. Sell us on a Monthly service, bump up your CRM and Marketing and AccountEdge could easily be getting $2k/ month from us.

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

Again, I was not directly involved with the planning and setup of the software. However, I was involved in training my staff during the implementation phase. As with any software implementation, consistency of training is key and a willingness to seek out help from Customer Support helps tremendously to insure accuracy of information and training.

Alternatives Considered

I have used QuickBooks Premier for Non-Profits in a previous job, but not at my current position. They have used MIP for several years prior to me coming on board. QuickBooks was much easier to learn, but I don't feel it has as much functionality as MIP does with the use of multiple federal and state managements and reporting

AccountEdge is a much easier product to learn, and it is also much better integrated. That being said, AccountEdge could definitely use a few updates to bring it forward into today's world of technology.

Return on Investment

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • One negative impact that AccountEdge has had on my business is the ability to have my accountant help with setup/tweaking the system as there aren't many accountants out there that are familiar with this system.
  • One positive impact that AccountEdge has had on my business is that it has provided me a more in depth, detailed understanding of my bottom line using its reports (once I figured out how to rearrange the accounts to suit my business needs).
  • Employee satisfaction will be increased once I implement AccountEdge's direct deposit feature. I've had a couple of employees say they would love to have this option but I have yet to have a chance to implement it.
