Abila MIP Fund Accounting

It is perfect for non-profit fund and grant accounting. To have the flexibility with the GL Account segments is fabulous. Abila MIP is perfect for companies with many different departments or functions or grants. It would be less appropriate in a small business setting where things are straight forward.

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.

  • Easy report building interface with an query interface that allows financial users the ability to conduct complex queries without difficulty.
  • The ability to create reporting that allows us to review in-depth financial review by drilling down into accounts to find transnational data easily.
  • Easily maintained and monitored with simple upgrade installations and end point installation.
  • Great knowledge base for review and trouble-shooting.
  • Highly knowledgeable and easy to work with staff.

Cons

  • Importing doesn't always work so great. Many times our numbers add up correctly and equal out on the spreadsheet, but we can't import due to an error of debits and credits not matching.
  • While the reporting functionality is great in its expanse, sometimes having to run a report for everything or try to play with all the customization options in order to get what you need is cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Not being able to turn off the auto-fill option can cause a detriment occasionally as codes that are similar may get missed during validation.

  • I would like to see the report builder of Advanced Reporting have more of the capabilities of Microsoft Excel.

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.

Return on Investment

  • Abila MIP Fund Accounting's budgeting and financial statement capabilities permit keeping tabs on spending trends and keeping grant costs within budget constraints, forecasting and advising management in good business decisions.
  • The GL module provides ability to distribute shared-costs according to grant approved methods to ensure a practice of meeting allowable costs for each grant and a fair distribution.

  • It has allowed me to gather historical labor data in a form that allowed for analysis. Without this software, I would not have been able to develop standard router times for our custom product lines.
