AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

MIP Fund Accounting

MIP is great when an organization has multiple departments. I am able to pinpoint exactly what department or event an expense was for because of the multiple options and layers to narrow down.Reports customizations are great in order to produce an understandable summary of the data for non-accounting professionals. This would be suitable for organizations who have staff with limited accounting knowledge outside the accounting team.

Pros

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • Grant level accounting. We manage well over 50 active grants at any given time. This system allows us to track revenue and expenditures at a grant level which enables our staff to accurately and effectively manage, monitor and report to funders.
  • Allocations module. The allocation module functions enable us to set various allocation methods to capture overhead costs and allocate to cost centers and grants efficiently and effectively.
  • Fixed Asset module. The fixed asset module allows us to integrate asset tracking and depreciation schedules that are easy to use and integrated for efficiency.

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • I've sat on several trainings and I feel that they are basic and broad. More real-life and in-depth examples for people that have been using the software would be great. I think the trainings are more geared to those that are just beginning to use MIP Fund Accounting.
  • I would like to see MIP Fund Accounting create a bank feed function to be used to aid the bank reconciliations.
  • For EWS, I think it would be beneficial for employees to still be able to track their hours worked in each grant per day; instead of having to break those hours up in a Cost Center on time entry for each day. This gets very daunting for some folks that have 5 or 6 splits, to record that each day. We've set these people up with a Cost Center using a distribution code; but it would still be beneficial for an auditor to see an employee document their hours worked per grant each day.

Honestly - if we had the resources to move - we would do it in a heartbeat. We have wasted so much money on this program. I am so disappointed in this product. I am so glad that I did not install it here. I just want basic functionality - and this program does not deliver.

While it does require training, and I would suggest it be on site if possible or at their corporate training offices, most users adapt to it quickly. Most parts of the program have very similar layout and functionalities and ability to have tasks/reports pre-configured.

MIP Fund Accounting has worked very well for me. It has been ten years that I have been working with the software and have never had an issue with it crashing or losing information. I would definitely recommend this software to other users based on the experience I have had.

We recently switched from the server version to the cloud version, and the first project manager did not answer any of my questions, and she was very unfriendly as well. I had a tremendous feeling of dread that we had made the wrong choice. A second project manager showed up, and she was exceptional! In fact we are still working with her and she's just amazing! PM #1 gets a 2, PM #2 gets a 10, so splitting the difference puts me at a 6.

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.

Denise O'Malley provided training for the HR module when we added it to our system. Denise also gave us a demo of the EWS module which we were able to see that it would not meet our needs. She was very kind about and understanding regarding the functions we needed with a time clock system.

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

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).

MIP Fund Accounting

I used Great Plains at a former job. It was also designed for non-profits. The payroll function/feature was much easier to maneuver than MIP Fund Accounting. The AP feature was comparable to that of MIP Fund Accounting and functioned somewhat the same. Which is nice. I do not know about the reports feature, as my reports processing was limited due to the job I had. Same with the budgeting features and A/R. We are a non-profit organization that wished to utilize a system designed specifically for this type of organization.

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

MIP Fund Accounting

  • It has fit our needs exactly.
  • It is all I've ever used at this organization. We briefly tried another setup in order to integrate with other systems and we quickly abandoned it to move back to MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP).
  • It has been a big time saver at payroll time and tax time.
