Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila MIP Fund Accounting is well suited for nonprofits that need to do financial reporting by cost center. It is also well suited for financial reporting that crosses fiscal years (such as foundation grants).The basic Abila Fund Accounting package does not appear well suited for electronic bill payment. The Budget module does not offer the flexibility of an Excel-based budgeting and projection system.

Synoptix

Synoptix is a great tool for anyone who is running the financials manually from their ERP system and then manipulating them into the proper format. This tool can take hours (if not days) of work and turn it into a 5 minute job. I have also found a lot of value from running analysis reports. The ability to drill into the system to see individual transactions is incredibly valuable. While there are occasionally bugs with the system, the customer service team at Synoptix is very responsive and always ready to help. I enjoy working with them and would buy the software again

Pros

  • Ability to run various reports based on the data available
  • Ability to import Excel data into MIP
  • Tech support is fast
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • Excellent job rolling out the product and training the key user community.
  • Integrates with our general ledger system seamlessly.
  • The report scheduler is great so that reports can run without having to manually run them all the time.

Cons

  • Reports could be more functional - have the ability to have both GLs and check numbers on reports
  • Some issues with license validation at random the software will decide not to work
  • Addition of new features more often
  • Add address verification support like ADP. ADP can verify addresses without having to google.
Luis Godoy profile photo
  • Sometimes you run into a glitch in the software that makes it seem as if the report won't run the way you think that it should. One example, is when you delete a cell and then add a different value the software seems to have some "memory" of the old data cell that was there previously. The key is to start fresh with new columns or rows.
  • There are many features within the Made2Manage ERP database that are not directly available to use in the software. However, the Synoptix techs will try to help find a work around or add some customization if needed.

Likelihood to Renew

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.8
Based on 35 answers
Since our system has been in place for almost ten years, we occasionally talk about doing a new implementation. We do not talk about moving to a different product. Abila has many options for support, including cloud support, that we can evaluate. The overall satisfaction between HR, Payroll and Accounting is high. We have taken advantage of training and have developed a good level of expertise and the program upgrade features do not require reworking our processes. We have not found the product to impede any of our process improvements and find new ways to utilize the features as time goes on.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.6
Based on 33 answers
It is a great software to use but it can still improve in some areas. Like if they could add spelling check function. Most software this day has spelling check as a standard function. Maybe if they could also expand the filters available when running custom reports would be very helpful

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 was not part of the selection for MIP and don't have anything to compare.

Synoptix is by far, much more user friendly

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

  • We are able to see the entire picture using MIP, this is very helpful for future planning.
Bianca Jurczak profile photo
  • 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.
