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.

SlickPie

In my opinion, SlickPie is best suited for small business owners and freelancers, especially service-based ones. If that's your case, then it's a no-brainer. However, if you are a bigger enterprise or if you are not a service-based business, then it might not be the best choice for you. Still, the software is free to use, so you might just give it a try anyway.

Pros

  • Abila reporting allows for many levels of detail, from including funding, gl, taxonomy, location, or just looking at location, or by gl, or by taxonomy. It allows you to look at reports from many perspectives. Its a strength for management to have usable information.
  • I like the way you can change the dates specific types of entries are allowed. Its a strength as you are closing grants and years so that you know something you reconciled will not suddenly change. You can go back and make it available again if needed.
  • I really like the Session Manager feature. To be able to completely reverse a session is so quick and easy. But there is still the audit trail. Has saved an enormous amount of data entry when trying to correct a misposting.

  • Great handy automation tools that save me quite some time.
  • Support was always helpful when I needed it.
  • Beautiful and intuitive design.
  • It's free to use.

Cons

  • I wish it was a little simpler to reverse a single invoice during the AP void check process.
  • In the payroll system improved reporting, being able to pull information from both the employee profile and the payroll system would be appreciated.
  • The ability to hide discontinued vendors from selection lists. As well as some way to improve vendor id conventions.

  • Some more invoice templates would be nice.
  • Some more charts would be good too.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
If you are not an accountant, it would be very difficult to use. As an accountant there are aspects that are so specific that if you do not understand how they work and hand off to other parts of the software, you can really mess up your reporting.

I have a hard time using the online help features and can seldom find answers to the questions I have. When I call, I want to be able to get the answer, not be told I can go "online" to find the answer.

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 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

Before shifting to SlickPie I was using QBO, so I guess I'll list it as a competitor. However, since SlickPie offers me 80-90% of QBO's features for free I can't really say QBO is a relevant contender.

Return on Investment

  • Reduced errors in payroll and accounting.
  • Solidified a workflow from one department to the next. In government you may have different departments handling different aspects of the accounting process and Abila can be customized it so that there is seamless integration from beginning to end.
  • Saved us money from having to hire additional part time employees during tax season.
Wesley Bond profile photo
  • It saves me around $500 in accounting software subscription per year.
  • It saves me around 4-5 hours a week in manual data entry (thanks to MagicBot).
  • It reduced the average time customers take to pay for my invoices.
