Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

I believe it is well suited for a small sized company, like my previous one, that does not want any IT overhead to onboard a new tool. This tool is available online and can be accessed via the internet. It has all the necessary components to help you record your activity.But the solution in its current form is not scalable. [I've] Given few of my reasons I feel this is not well suited for a large company (like the one I currently work at).

Pros

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • 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.

  • It allowed me to fill my work time sheet. Every week I had to fill this. Based on the numbers the company keeps track of which days I worked.
  • It reminded me to fill the time sheets constantly and also notifies me when it gets approved. So I never really forgot to fill it.
  • It allowed me to see my vacation days left, and plan ahead.
  • It had a list of holiday dates which was very handy to plan my trips or vacation.
  • It had categorization by department and my view of time sheets was only limited to me. I could not see others time sheets, and except for my manager, nobody else could look into mine.
  • It had internet access, which meant I could fill my sheets anywhere. It came in handy while working from home where a VPN connection may not be present. I also guess that this service being online meant no extra effort from IT department side.

Cons

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • It would be nice to switch between databases without having to logout and login.
  • When entering codes (like for a journal entry) it doesn't auto-search/fill the account numbers...you have to hit the dropdown and scroll for the number.
  • You can't post cash receipts without first having an invoice, which can slow down your processing.

Replicon WebExpense

  • The UI in my opinion was too simple. Calendar views were pretty stale.
  • I don't believe there was a mobile app for this, or this site worked nicely when opened on small devices.
  • A better view of my time could have been shown. At the time I could only see small excel like boxes filled with numbers. Graphs, or some other visualization of remaining days would have been lucrative.
  • Very stupid login page. We had to fill "company name" at the login page and this name had to match exactly to what was set in the database. It was frustrating and I always had to refer my notes to get that right.
  • There wasn't any preselection option which made it hard to do it fast. If I can only set a few fields (because we had long list of dropdowns to choose from) then this process could be much smoother.
  • A major issue was not being able to see my team-mates schedule or calendar. E.g. when are they taking vacations. So I had to pester them offline to get this information. Many times due to inter-team miscommunication we didn't know about others vacation days during planning. A central place where I could see this information would have helped me a lot.

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

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.

Replicon WebExpense

I believe it is not in my power to select the best tool. It depends on whatever company I work for. It just happens that we use a different system (and I don't even know if this is an internal system, or another online tool). But I do like my current system. It has a better UI, and more detailed insights about my time. It also shows my pay stubs and other small neat information like tax papers to help me organize. It also has notifications when something new comes up.All these features I think I lacked in Replicon (or maybe my company didn't have access to these).

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

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

  • 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

Replicon WebExpense

  • Replicon helped me maintain a record of my time. This helped during my assessment where my manager could see my work hours.
  • Replicon was easy to use, so I didn't spend my precious time filling sheets in this site. As far as I can remember, this site only gave me problem once, but was never down.
  • Though a good tool, I actually never got the use case of recording your time sheets. I think it will be pretty hard for an employee to just fill the time sheet and not show up for work. There are so many meetings and people around you, that you cannot fake your presence. So I feel there is no need to fill time sheets. It is a functionality with no real world solution.
