Likelihood to Recommend

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.

It is a good system with excellent audit trail for small business. Key questions to ask during the selection process are:Which modules does your business need? What is the cost for maintenance and support?What staff training is recommended and what is the cost of training?How much training is needed to do report writing?

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.

  • Financial system can be viewed in detail and summary, on screen, exported or printed.
  • System can handled multiple bank accounts.
  • System can handle multiple companies.

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
  • A key missing function is to be able to track serial numbers and lots independent of item valuation method. The system will not track serial numbers for standard cost valuation items.
  • This is a killer for manufacturing operations, which often use standard cost accounting.
  • The non-work order production process, Bill of Material Production Entry, has no way to schedule a planned production order.
  • If you could create a production order like a sales order, then light manufacturing operations would not need to implement the work order module (one of the most complex modules) in order to show planned production supply in MRP.
  • Inventory Warehouse Transfers are currently instantaneous. There is no way to schedule a planned transfer with ship and arrive dates. No transfer in process documentation.
  • This makes it difficult for MRP if you need to transfer material from one warehouse to another and need to factor in transport time.
  • Reconciling Purchase Price Variance in the GL with sub system transactions is very difficult. Critical for Standard Cost Accounting PPV analysis.
  • If the sub system transactions showed the transaction line standard cost and PPV value, then it would be much simpler to reconcile with the GL transaction data.
  • While the work order module works, it is not very user friendly. Just getting a work order to the point that you can work on it is a multi step process requiring running posting reports.
  • The work order partial completion costing logic is inadequate, requiring 100% of the WIP dollars be issued to the work order before doing a partial completion.

I would put this out to bid, if I were at the same organization. There have been a lot of improvements and changes in enterprise software and my preference would be to find a good web-based or cloud-based tool. Lower overall cost of ownership and improved efficiency would be my target criteria for a rebid of this.

It is easy, flexible, user friendly and feature laden. Out of the box or easily customized to meet our "wish" list . Sage offers a variety of modules and bolt-ons, user defined fields etc., allowing us to conduct business "our way" without forcing us into a one-size- fits- none mold or having to purchase expensive and cumbersome programming modifications

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.

We had an advantage in implementing the tool in that our director of Ops had been part of the team implementing the ERP for other users so we knew what to expect and were able to avoid a lot of the challenges people sometimes face with implementations. However, the process still took far longer than desired.

Alternatives Considered

I have not had an opportunity to compare this system to others. I had no input in selecting this system. I would have liked to have compared it to other systems in terms of ease of use/intuitiveness, flexibility and granularity of report development, and capabilities in dealing with prior year adjustments and their effect on trial balance reporting. On those counts, I do not think the system scores very high
