Likelihood to Recommend

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.

QuickBooks for Mac

It's easy and fun to use QuickBooks for Mac when it is set up right. It works well for the most part and has only a few bugs. I would rate it a 9 if it was able to do job costing for wages, and if there were more programs/apps that integrate with it.But if you are choosing accounting technology QuickBooks for Mac might be a poor choice because an online accounting program, instead of premise-based software, will make it easier to collaborate with your bookkeeper, CPA, Advisor, etc.. The exception is running QuickBooks for Mac in a hosted environment which allows multiple users to access it. Of course if your internet connection is unreliable, you are not ready for online accounting software! In that case, QuickBooks for Mac is easy to use, just be sure it's set up right first.

Pros

  • The interface and operations of Abila MIP Fund are fairly easy to utilize and learn.
  • It offers some excellent tools for managing a non-profit operation.
  • The software makes it easy to streamline operations into one system without dealing with separate departments working with different systems.

  • Online banking is easy and fun to learn, and saves data-entry for those little debits/ATM's on your bank statement.
  • Invoices can be designed to look nice and emailed with a "Pay link which speeds up cash flow; a #1 concern for new businesses.
  • Save money by using the online payroll that syncs in data so you don't have to enter complicated paychecks at all.

Cons

  • The Budget Worksheet isn't the simplest to use and understand how the outcome will reflect. It took me some trial and error, and writing my own in-house procedures to feel comfortable with the budget worksheets.
  • There are so many modules that Abila offers that it can be frustrating to learn that in order to obtain a certain feature you have to purchase another module, which may come with way more than you need or want. For example, with the Payroll Module you can select Direct Deposit for an employee but without the Direct Deposit module I can't access the feature to email the pay stub vouchers to those employees with Direct Deposit.
  • There are so many reports available that it can be hard to remember where the report you need is located. Some reports don't include Unposted Transactions and some don't allow the same level of customization.

  • Any concerns I have would be with QuickBooks Online and its functionality and not the app. The web version is the same as the app so when I do need to use the web version on a PC, the familiarity is there to not miss a beat.

We are fully invested in the product at this time. Unless Abila fails to keep up with the times, I don't see a need to migrate to another solution unless a substantial cost savings can be made.

Usability

Very easy to use. It does help if you have prior database knowledge. It was easy to create reports to get the information out of the system. The canned reports are a great place to start to work on customizing for your own use

The Mac version is OK overall. I find the Windows versions to be much more robust but Mac is quite good for Mac users. Though I think die hard Mac users should consider QuickBooks Online instead as there is a new QB for Mac app that makes using QBO much better!

I've been using the QuickBooks online version for a little over 6 months now (upgraded from Mac desktop) and I haven't had any access issues. There have been times when it was down for service/upgrade however there is always plenty of notification time given by the Quick Books Online Support team. These upgrade maintenance time frames are always over night hours and on the weekends so everything can be worked around very easily.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at two other software products and they just couldn't track the separate funding sources the way we needed them too. It was going to be a lot of exporting and backtracking to get the right information (at that time). And Blackbaud just didn't seem to have enough "oomph" to be what we needed with the volume of transactions we have.

Return on Investment

  • With budgets getting tighter, we had to be able to track expenses and revenues down to a very detailed level and extract that information in various ways. Abila MIP Fund Accounting gives us that capability.

  • Having familiarity with the product and Mac OS has provided me access to clients who use the Mac version.
