MIP Fund Accounting

I honestly believe MIP Fund Accounting is a decent accounting program. I was familiar with it in a former job setting, where I was reviewing the records of sub-contractors who utilized the MIP system. It provided the information we needed, as well as it seemed very easy to use. Our subs who had MIP Fund Accounting and utilized it were very happy. When I left that position, the majority of our subs had switched over to MIP accounting. That spoke mountains to me. When I came on board at aging best, I was excited to learn they utilized MIP Fund Accounting. After being there a few months, I soon learned that MIP Fund Accounting wasn't utilized to its full capacity. I sought advice from former colleagues, as well as new colleagues who also utilized MIP Fund Accounting. Much to my dismay, they were only able to provide minimal assistance. The customer service we've received has been very disheartening, and the training has been spotty, at best. This is why I rank it at a 3.

Pros

MIP Fund Accounting

  • Allocation feature is great. You can make changes to percentages and programs as needed.
  • The budgeting portion works great, and makes it simple the first time you set up your company's annual budgets.
  • The Financial Reporting is wonderful. You can save and automate reports, and it helps eliminate run time at month end.

  • They keep up with government standards and needs

Cons

MIP Fund Accounting

  • I [wish] being able to export to excel was a bit easier. I now have to save it and then open it as opposed to the spreadsheet just populating.
  • I'd like for un-posting to be a little more automated as opposed. Basically like an "un-do" button.
  • I don't like forced password changes but I understand the requirement.

  • Sometimes I feel they move too quickly on product development

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.

Usability

It is a pretty easy software to learn and retain the knowledge of how to use. We are a work program school, and as such have student workers that we train each semester and the students are able to quickly learn to use the system. Even with several months of not using the software the students are able to pick it back up quickly with little to no refreshers.

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.

Our firm transferred from Quickbooks to Abila, and the transition was quite painless. Abila has continued to support us where possible. The system's features and modules are customizable, so one using it should be aware of what they do/do not have rights to.

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

MIP Fund Accounting

I have only used QuickBooks (both desktop and online) and MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP) has better functionality in most areas. The only downside to MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP) is that you cannot click into line items in reports like you can with QuickBooks. However, I think MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP) is better at catching certain errors before they're posted, as I found something things could get lost in QuickBooks more easily. I also think having a software specifically designed for Non-profiting accounting makes MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP) the preferred product.

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

  • The software really helps save money if implemented correctly. If an organization needs extensive training then its costs might be too high.
  • Centralizing the flow of information into one system can help reduce errors.
  • The reporting tools can either be quite timesaving or sometimes too simplistic. An organization will need to do a good requirement's analysis when looking at this product.
