Likelihood to Recommend

Abila MIP Fund Accounting

The product is really well suited for small to medium non-profit organizations and other types of operations. Its features might not be as applicable for commercial businesses or large organizations. Some organizations may want to weight its fees and costs when choosing the product. Overall its features are well integrated and quite useful for organizations that may not need a more complex accounting product.

Workbooks

Very well suited for lead management, the sales team can review and manage leads and opportunities through workbooks. It is also suitable for customer management, including support and linking support cases to customers. it also allows us to manage if customers have paid for support and then suspend or activate their accounts accordingly

Pros

  • The vast array of account segmenting allows us to break down our business in many different ways, which gets us the information we need to make sure we are doing business right.
  • We love the ability to process vendor EFT payments, which fits our green thinking and saves lots of paper.
  • Having a cloud based platform allows us to work more efficiently and not have to worry about using the most recent version or keeping up with payroll updates.
Eric Harvey profile photo
  • Transparency regarding the stage that each of our projects are at.
  • Excellent way of ensuring that each project has a current task against it, ensuring that someone within the team has control of the project.
  • Great data accessibility as many of the team work in the field or from home.
  • Excellent management reporting.

Cons

  • It would be nice to switch between databases without having to logout and login.
  • When entering codes (like for a journal entry) it doesn't auto-search/fill the account numbers...you have to hit the dropdown and scroll for the number.
  • You can't post cash receipts without first having an invoice, which can slow down your processing.
Eric Harvey profile photo
  • Searching for names can be slow.
  • Workbooks is a complex system and can take a little while to master.
  • Managing multiple user types can be tricky to get the right security access.

Usability

Abila MIP Fund Accounting8.8
Based on 38 answers
It does what I need it to do. Because my usage is generally confined to the reports module, I held back a bit in my rating. If I compared the report module in this package to our previous solution, I would give Abila a 10+.

In-Person Training

I was trained on the job by the person who implemented and had used it for 6 years prior to my employment. She was very knowledgeable, but didn't know all of the ins and outs, which is where I self taught.

Implementation

I believe implementation went well because of the way training was setup. We started with a classroom setting to go thru all aspects of the software then practicing setup before going live.

Alternatives Considered

I have used QuickBooks Premier for Non-Profits in a previous job, but not at my current position. They have used MIP for several years prior to me coming on board. QuickBooks was much easier to learn, but I don't feel it has as much functionality as MIP does with the use of multiple federal and state managements and reporting
Tracie Lambright profile photo
Salesforce, Pivotal and Sugar. I find Workbooks much easier to use and more efficient.

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

  • It has had a negative impact in that it remains too time consuming to get information that is needed out of the system.
  • It is not very intuitive in lending an easy way to figure out what types of reports to run and what information can be included.
  • Too many strange results are obtained when running trial balance reports. I get different results based on different date parameters.

  • Complete client profiling
  • Greater opportunity visibility acrioss the practice
  • Effective campaign management
