Abila MIP Fund Accounting

I feel that any accounting office in a non-profit setting would benefit from MIP. I used it in a former position as senior accountant for a community action agency for over 6 years and recommended it to the VP of Finance and our COO when I came to the clinic last year. After researching, they both agreed it would better suit our needs than the software we were using. MIP really understands what non-profits need when it comes to tracking financials and all the different scenarios funders have when it comes to what they want to see and gets the job well in hand.

Tipalti

Tipalti is well suited for companies that have to pay out hundreds of partners in multiple currencies in different formats (e.g. Paypal, ACH, wires, eChecks.) They provide a very intuitive portal that has a simple yet effective UI to process payments. If your company has minimal payment needs, Tipalti could be helpful but I think it's best suited for companies that have many payment streams. That would allow your company to fully tap the potential of this tool

Pros

  • I particularly like the copy/rename reports features. It allows the user to make slight changes to reports they may use frequently and save the report with a new name. This saves time when detailed reports are needed quickly.
  • I like the payroll function and the ability to allocate payroll between accounts rather than to calculate it manually.
  • I appreciate the recaps at the bottom of the AP & JV screens which show the accounts being referenced and whether the transaction is balance. It is a good double check.

  • Whenever I have a payment related questions, I have reached out to the Support team and received a near instant response from a customer service representative. They have managed to resolve all of my issues.
  • Tipalti has a very clean user interface. Payment file uploads are easy.
  • Detailed reports are very easily exported which I directly upload into my accounting software for easy bookkeeping and reconciliations.

Cons

  • The print on the screen is so small (probably an 8 font), it is hard to read for older users.
  • I would like to be able to change the name of a vendor without deleting it and then re-adding it which loses the history. Sometimes company names change but other aspects remain the same. Or you may mistype a name and need to correct it.
  • There is no easy way to change the chart of accounts if you need to do renumbering. If the person establishing the chart of accounts isn't experienced with it, there is no way to correct the mistakes. This is true especially for the numbering order and leaving enough space between numbers.
  • I wish there was a hard copy manual that clarifies what happens when specific information is typed or requested. For example: What happens in the system when you are writing a reversing journal entry. It allows for 4 different types of reversing entries, but doesn't identify the difference so one would know which one to select.
  • I would like to be able to refer back to other reports when using the "drill-down". The system doesn't allow for that.

  • We pay numerous photographers around the world on a weekly basis. Tipalti helps coordinate these payments and helps resolve coordinating queries from individual financial institutions. The main benefit we realized with Tipalti over other payment services is the breadth of coverage on a global scale.

It is fairly easy to get a hold of support with Abila MIP Fund Accounting. I also like how we get frequent updates on the status of our support request so that we know exactly what is going on and so we do not feel forgotten about. This is more than a lot of companies do.

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.

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.

When we implemented Tipalti, PayPal was not supported for mass payments in India. The fees for PayPal transfers are generally higher than some of the Tipalti payment methods especially for larger payment amounts. We felt the additional payment options and the option to subsidize fees was a value add for our research community.
