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.

Spreadsheet Server

Being able to use the Distribution Manager function is very helpful. This allows us to pull together financial statements for multiple companies, while simultaneously removing the Spreadsheet Server function.

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.

  • The ability to pull data directly from ERP systems into a spreadsheet, allowing the data to be easily viewed and managed.
  • The ability to use the distribution manager in order to present data without Spreadsheet Server functions.

Cons

  • The interface is not very user friendly. It can be daunting or intimidating for users who may not have knowledge of accounting software.
  • I feel that if Drillpoint reports can be integrated with the Scheduler Module, it would make reporting and data manipulation even better.

  • I would like to see the ability to pull data across different fiscal years using one formula.

We will renew for the next two years, however we are in the process of becomming a subsidary of a larger company and may undergo an integration into the accounting system that it uses. Until this happens we will stay with Abila.

We have had problems with MIP's ability to integrate with other software or systems. Just makes for a longer shopping time when searching for products we need to integrate with MIP

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.

Implementation

Based on 19 answers
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

Abila offers an unmatched level of customization and flexibility for the price. Great integration with their modules as they are in house developed so things aren't tacked on from third parties. Some of the other competitors have to go outside their company to give you what Abila already has built in. Abila is a solid software suite that just works.

Spreadsheet Server is easier to get started and more user friendly. It seems to be better for our size business.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
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

  • It is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.

  • The use of spreadsheet server allows the finance/accounting staff to work much more efficiently.
