Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Many competing products may not offer some of the comprehensive all-in-one type solutions that are found in Abila MIP Fund. Non-profits can have particulate needs such as specialized taxation, funding, and membership support not always address in other commercial oriented products. Often non-profit organizations may piece together separate applications that can be found in Abila MIP Fund and this product can help save a great deal of time and money.

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.
