Abila MIP Fund Accounting

With Abila MIP's versatility I think it would be well suited for any industry, but especially for any industry where you wanted to be very specific on tracking or cost accounting. The ability to segment your accounts allows you to track by just about any method you would like to be successful.

ZipBooks

ZipBooks is really strong for small businesses (and non-profits like the ones I help manage). It may not yet be ready to handle medium or large businesses given the deep, niche functionality that is sometimes required in those cases.

Pros

  • Data conversion from our previous system to Abila MIP Fund Accounting was made as seamlessly as possible. We were able to successfully integrate without trouble and leaving us with continuity in our data.
  • The help that we received in developing SOPs for our growing organization proved difficult prior to using the help from Abila MIP. Once we were up and running with the service we got what we needed and were able to make our organization's procedures as ordered as a larger and more established company would have.
  • The ability to see where our funds would most effectively be spent helped us utilize them so that we could make best use four our investors.

  • The user experience is easily the best I have seen with any invoicing software.
  • They create clean, professional invoice templates.
  • They make setting up and managing projects easy.

Cons

  • Understanding the permissions assigned to employees got confusing at times.

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.

Implementation

Based on 19 answers
There were no records available to indicate where accounts with balances needed reversing entries. This problem carried forward for several years until it was traced back to implementation and reversed.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at two other software products and they just couldn't track the separate funding sources the way we needed them too. It was going to be a lot of exporting and backtracking to get the right information (at that time). And Blackbaud just didn't seem to have enough "oomph" to be what we needed with the volume of transactions we have.

ZipBooks is a much cleaner, easier to use software.

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 is positive when I can create reports that are easily utilized month after month for grant reporting. Each of our grants requires a little different format of data and MIP allows me to customize reports to easily pull information I need to satisfy grantors.
LaShawna Simonsen profile photo
  • I don't have a ROI for the use of Zipbooks though it has helped greatly with organizing for taxes. Our economy here has been so volatile for three years with deep dips down, that no software can aid in support the financial health other than to track the expenses and income and watch the balance to observe.
