Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Because I work in the FQHC world, I would recommend this product specifically for any business or end user within that field. This product allows people in this field to comply with federal reporting requirements, makes it easier to track grants, and allows for the slicing and dicing of financial statements in many ways which is important in this field. This product is good for most day to day accounting functions and is pretty robust as well for an FQHC. This product is probably less appropriate for large healthcare systems where you want to keep track of statistics which this product cannot currently do.

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

  • It allows you to create folders in which you can scan invoices, business associate contracts, and contracts in general by vendor. This allows us to keep everything in one place digitally. The good thing about this is that it speeds up finding old invoices, and allows you to send audit selections to the auditor faster due to the items selected already being scanned in digitally.
  • MIP allows for the creation of distribution codes. These are nice as they allow you to charge out common costs to multiple departments in a quick manner. Without this feature, one has to key in manually many line items into the system each and every month. Plus this feature allows for consistency, and elimination of keying errors.
  • If you have the Chart of Accounts set up properly, this system allows you to better track items by departments, Revenue/Fund codes, Location, and by GL. This is important as it allows for better analysis, tracking and reporting.
  • As for the budgeting module, this is also nice as you have the ability to upload your budget via a CSV file or you can manually cut and paste your numbers from excel into the system as well. The key thing though is setting up your budget template to match the format in MIP when cutting and pasting.

  • 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.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
Based on 37 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.

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 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

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

Scalability

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.
