Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Zoho Books

zoho books is great for a majority of companies who want an alternative to the status quo bookkeeping solution. There may not be many people around who can help you with it though. Also working with a CPA on taxes, they may not be able to assist with you getting them the numbers required to do their job

Cons

  • The Fixed Assets module is somewhat difficult to use with respect to disposals
  • In A/R posted transactions there is no dollar amount posted
  • When requesting posted transactions, all items appear, not just the one being requested
  • A/P vendor history displays in date order by clicking the tab at the top of the column. However, a printed version does not come out in date order
  • We have had problems matching the A/R aging report to the General Ledger
  • The drill-down feature should be expanded to areas other than financial statements
Robert Bowsza profile photo
  • Sometimes I cannot use it or login to Zoho books
  • Tax sales is so difficult
  • Users should have more control over the snail mail fields

We have had problems with MIP's ability to integrate with other software or systems. Just makes for a longer shopping time when searching for products we need to integrate with MIP

The technical support team is thorough, and understands accounting as well as technical issues. If a challenge arises, the issue is escalated. Although that has rarely happened.

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

Zoho Books was an easy choice for us because of the features and smaller learning curve. Most of our staff have been able to come in and learn how to use it within hours versus the days it used to take to learn QuickBooks. Also being online, we are able to have real-time stats and analysis within Zoho Books from anywhere anytime.

Scalability

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

  • Reduced errors in payroll and accounting.
  • Solidified a workflow from one department to the next. In government you may have different departments handling different aspects of the accounting process and Abila can be customized it so that there is seamless integration from beginning to end.
  • Saved us money from having to hire additional part time employees during tax season.
Wesley Bond profile photo
  • Zoho Books has streamlined our workflow between departments and accounts as we are able to enter and see accounts receivable and payable in real time. This has helped us spend less time following payments and focusing on improving our service delivery.
  • Zoho Books has also helped us cut costs and have more people in the know about sales and accounts.
  • We have been able to reduce invoicing time by half as it is easy to log in and create an invoice using a standard template and follow-ups can be made to payments. All the while accounts and sales, as well as marketing departments, can follow at what stage a potential sale has reached.
