Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

I believe Abila is suited for organizations that have complex funding structures. Especially those organizations who have multiple funding sources with agencies that require different expense coding to ensure expenses are properly classified. I think Abila is not appropriate for small organizations whose chart of accounts may be less complex in addition to a lower operating budget.

Job costing and more advanced accounting requirements are typically not well-suited to QB applications. Sometimes they can be handled with third-party add-ons but it just depends.

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.
Donavan Lam, CPA profile photo
  • Integrated credit card processing - posts automatically to customer accounts, allows online payment. It uses the most current technology.
  • It maintains a good strong history of billing and collections and provides collection letters and assistance when you have past due amounts to collect.
  • It allows you to download credit card transactions and post into the software automatically. It is easy to track spending details with this process.

Cons

  • The Fixed Assets module is somewhat difficult to use with respect to disposals
  • In A/R posted transactions there is no dollar amount posted
  • When requesting posted transactions, all items appear, not just the one being requested
  • A/P vendor history displays in date order by clicking the tab at the top of the column. However, a printed version does not come out in date order
  • We have had problems matching the A/R aging report to the General Ledger
  • The drill-down feature should be expanded to areas other than financial statements
Robert Bowsza profile photo
  • Payroll needs to be streamlined. There are about 5 steps to creating a payroll check, 2 (the confirmations to create and print the checks) are redundant.
  • Payroll tax payment corrections are too complicated. Adjusting the balances for discounts, etc. are cumbersome.
  • Using the find for an amount could be better. There is no default, you have to choose less than, greater than or equal. The default should be equal. The others should be an option.

I am not the decision-maker, but it would be my recommendation at this point.

Because we have been extremely happy with the product and our organization tends to be creatures of habit. We rarely leave a product that works this well for the latest and greatest. Typically we follow the "if it's not broken, don't fix it rule". While QB does make changes we typically just roll with it. If we do find something we don't like we work through it until we fully understand its functionality.

This is very reliable software, the desktop version is fast. If there is a problem, it is most likely on your own hardware!

The technical support team is thorough, and understands accounting as well as technical issues. If a challenge arises, the issue is escalated. Although that has rarely happened.

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 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

I have recently started working with Deltek Vision as a consultant project for a large sized architectural company with firms across the world. Understandably, Vision is a great project for this firm because of the needs that are required for a global firm, but is much more complex and requires much more work, effort, and steps to get things done. You can customize a lot of items which is great, but is far too complex and non cost-effective for small to mid-sized firms.

Scalability

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

  • Having all the modules in one convenient place has saved our company money as well as time.
  • Our finance team is much more efficient because of the combined modules, its a one-stop shop!
  • One negative impact is how long it takes someone to be trained to use the software effectively and efficiently.
Tracie Lambright profile photo
  • QuickBooks Premier lowers staffing and out sourcing costs by allowing one person to enter and maintain your companies finances.
