Tallie, from Emburse

Tallie is well suited for those that utilize Bill.com or another of its compatible integrations. Small businesses to medium-sized corporations can (fairly quickly) leverage Tallie. Tallie would be less appropriate for organizations that already lean heavily on Salesforce, NetSuite, or Workday -- Concur or Expensify might be more suitable options.

MIP Fund Accounting

Well-suited for basic accounting, I would give it an 8. Drill-down would be nice on the general ledger to be able to look at the original entry. Maintaining the year codes and distribution codes is much too involved-this needs to be streamlined. Would be nice to be able to update information on encumbrances and purchase orders prior payment. The accounts receivable module is a bit of a nightmare-we don't use the invoicing function as it is too involved for our company. While the Accounting function deserves and 8, I would only give the payroll function about a 4.5-sorry.

Pros

Tallie, from Emburse

  • Very intuitive - liked how it was convenient to use when uploading receipts and liked how it would attempt to figure out what was on it so it could pre populate the required fields.
  • The ability to add multiple categories and subcategories for where your purchase falls in the organization was super helpful when keeping organized.
  • Mobile app to upload receipts on the fly has helped increase the amount of folks remembering to submit their receipts.

MIP Fund Accounting

  • The interface and operations of Abila MIP Fund are fairly easy to utilize and learn.
  • It offers some excellent tools for managing a non-profit operation.
  • The software makes it easy to streamline operations into one system without dealing with separate departments working with different systems.
Bruce Emmerling | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Tallie, from Emburse

  • Tallie suggests it is able to read receipts and place them into the correct category, but I find myself updating these sections each time I upload a receipt. The system should be updated to read multiple receipts.
  • Tallie sometimes rejects photos if they are not specific enough. This can be frustrating since it is sometimes difficult to upload receipts quickly while on the road. However, this rejection is not a common occurrence.
  • More often then not, Tallie's emails go to my junk folder. Tallie should work on their spam count for Outlook.
Danielle Armour | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • 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.

Tallie is a functional and reliable method of reporting expenses, though it's integrations and old-looking mobile application UI are drawbacks

If you are not an accountant, it would be very difficult to use. As an accountant there are aspects that are so specific that if you do not understand how they work and hand off to other parts of the software, you can really mess up your reporting.

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.

As a user of Tallie, I have never needed any support to use it. It is simple, logical and needs no training to use. As a company, I don't think we need any ongoing support but I believe the setup process, which they guided us through a year ago went well.

They consistently provide quality, knowledgeable service to my questions and concerns. The only reason I am not giving them a 10 is because recently the hold time on the telephone has been much longer than in the past. the quality of the customer service, once I speak to a representative continues to be of a high quality, but the delays are atypical of previous encounters.

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.

Having a detailed plan helps. Understanding what your data 'means' is important so it can be correctly mapped to the new solution. Having other staff in on the early training helped as well. We had a few questions that popped up that our implementer was able to address promptly which then prompted the controller to ask even more detailed questions. In the end, we ended up with a better product. Keep in mind, you won't remember to ask all of the relevant questions and you may run into 'challenges' after the fact

Alternatives Considered

Tallie, from Emburse

Tallie stacks up well to Concur. In terms of ease of use, Tallie wins by a landslide. However, when it comes to deeper functionality and integrations into other systems within the business, Concur definitely wins there. So, Tallie is easier for more simple purposes, while Tallie works for more complex organizations.

Fund EZ is a product I found out about from a previous employment stint. It has a lot of the features MIP has but is not nearly as good. I would consider using this product if MIP continues to raise fees.

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

Tallie, from Emburse

  • Tallie has allowed us to better control and forecast our cash flow, since we can faster process expense reports
  • For our billable employees, we have more accurately billed our customers, since we have better insight into travel expenses
  • We estimate we now save 10ish hours per month on the entire expense reporting and reimbursement process
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

MIP Fund Accounting

  • Abila has streamlined and allowed more tasks to be automated maximizing the efficiency of staff so more staff is not needed.
  • The Maintenance and Support annual fee is a bit expensive and not a very good return especially for the amount of features that are updated from year to year. I don't use support a lot since our systems are pretty efficient so hence I don't think the annual M&S is justifiable.
  • Abila's importing feature allows integration to many different systems which makes Abila very flexible allowing costs to be saved if the owner of the Abila system switches between vendors.
