Abila MIP Fund Accounting

I believe Abila is suited for organizations that have complex funding structures. Especially those organizations who have multiple funding sources with agencies that require different expense coding to ensure expenses are properly classified. I think Abila is not appropriate for small organizations whose chart of accounts may be less complex in addition to a lower operating budget.

This would work well for the back side of accounting...meaning after the invoice was created. If you need software to create invoices, this may not be the software for you (or at least you would have to do additional research on its capability). Other than that, it takes care of the majority of our needs.

Pros

  • Abila MIP Fund Accounting has great support, they are always quick to respond and always find a solution or at least an answer. They also have a feature to easily request product enhancements.
  • They give the user the ability to modify reports which is extremely helpful to be able to tailor reports to specific needs.
  • Help and Support! If you are unsure of a feature the system has a great diagram for how the process works, click on a picture in the diagram and it opens up that feature. Once that window is open there is a Help button on just about every screen that, once clicked, takes you to an extensive library of procedures, descriptions, tips and important information.
  • They put on a great annual training.

  • It is easy to move around in if set up properly.
  • You can changes background colors to your choice.
  • It is customizable (you can create home pages specific to the user).

Cons

  • We would like to show budget, actual expense, and encumbered expenses in the same report so that we could compare budgets to a combined total of actual costs and encumbered costs.
  • We would like the payroll module to stop allocating benefits on both salary and expenses. If you use Microix to track employee expenses, like mileage, MIP will use the expenses and the salary, from Microix, as the basis for benefit allocation. Only the salary should be used.
  • MIP does not recalculate annual leave balances when an employee's salary changes so we have to use an outside program to calculate the revisions and import it back to MIP. Our old accounting software, Fundware, was able to make this calculation.
  • The allocation module is so complex that our auditors and monitors where unable to follow the path. This had to do with the number of segments we used. We now allocate on a spreadsheet and import to MIP.

  • There is a lot of "building" when first starting up with the software.
  • Some of the data you cannot pull unless you have sequel knowledge, although capabilities are getting better.
  • There is not a good operating statement report option.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.9
Based on 37 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

Implementation

Abila MIP Fund Accounting6.9
Based on 21 answers
Again, I was not directly involved with the planning and setup of the software. However, I was involved in training my staff during the implementation phase. As with any software implementation, consistency of training is key and a willingness to seek out help from Customer Support helps tremendously to insure accuracy of information and training.

Alternatives Considered

I was not part of the selection for MIP and don't have anything to compare.
Bianca Jurczak profile photo
Unit4 Financials is definitely much more robust than Peachtree or other software. I've also used SAP in the past and this seems to have many more capabilities.

Scalability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting9.0
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
  • Because of the lack of operating statement reports, we've had to spend additional funds to use another system.
  • It does show data in real time, so no waiting for batches to update overnight.
  • You can do a lot of customizing to meet your own needs.
