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.

SAP ERP

SAP ERP adapts very well to organizations that have a complex and difficult to control operation to address, because it has the work tools that allow the modules to integrate each of the processes present across production, facilitating planning, execution, and immediate follow-up of each of the actions. SAP ERP is not recommended to be implemented in simple organizations with simple work operations. A simple organization does not require investing a significant amount of money in the implementation of an ERP system, which SAP ERP requires (with input from several professionals, due to the number of variables that compose it and because of its complexity).

Cons

  • Understanding the permissions assigned to employees got confusing at times.
Brandon Adawi profile photo
  • In our case, the support department is a little slow to meet important requests.
  • When the user does not remember the password, our recovery option is only the technical support department. Some recovery option by E-mail would be excellent.
  • Transactions to generate monthly reports over time have become slower. We need debugging of this. Customers are growing and transactions equal, there should be some way to optimize the process and for these reports to not take so long to generate.
  • The data export formats are of old software. They should consider updating the current formats to the new ones.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

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.

I highly recommend using a business partner for implementation. The business partners have implemented this product for numerous years and have a wealth of knowledge from working with various non profits and governmental entities. Some are close by and can provide on site 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
