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.

Job costing and more advanced accounting requirements are typically not well-suited to QB applications. Sometimes they can be handled with third-party add-ons but it just depends.

Pros

MIP Fund Accounting

  • The vast array of account segmenting allows us to break down our business in many different ways, which gets us the information we need to make sure we are doing business right.
  • We love the ability to process vendor EFT payments, which fits our green thinking and saves lots of paper.
  • Having a cloud based platform allows us to work more efficiently and not have to worry about using the most recent version or keeping up with payroll updates.

  • Integrated credit card processing - posts automatically to customer accounts, allows online payment. It uses the most current technology.
  • It maintains a good strong history of billing and collections and provides collection letters and assistance when you have past due amounts to collect.
  • It allows you to download credit card transactions and post into the software automatically. It is easy to track spending details with this process.

Cons

MIP Fund Accounting

  • The Budget Worksheet isn't the simplest to use and understand how the outcome will reflect. It took me some trial and error, and writing my own in-house procedures to feel comfortable with the budget worksheets.
  • There are so many modules that Abila offers that it can be frustrating to learn that in order to obtain a certain feature you have to purchase another module, which may come with way more than you need or want. For example, with the Payroll Module you can select Direct Deposit for an employee but without the Direct Deposit module I can't access the feature to email the pay stub vouchers to those employees with Direct Deposit.
  • There are so many reports available that it can be hard to remember where the report you need is located. Some reports don't include Unposted Transactions and some don't allow the same level of customization.

  • You can only have average cost for inventory. No last-in, last-out (LIFO) or first-in, first-out (FIFO).
  • If you are not on a hosted solution provider, you may have problems accessing your data remotely.
  • You have to keep upgrading and installing updates.

This is very reliable software, the desktop version is fast. If there is a problem, it is most likely on your own hardware!

We have been financially challenged in the last few years and we have always renewed our support contract, even if it was a financial stretch. The fact that Abilia has been flexible in their renewal accommodation has been greatly appreciated. Every single time we have needed help, it has been effective and efficiently delivered. The service team has worked well with our all skill levels of our staff and I have only heard positive outcomes in our 15 years. Never a bad outcome. I would say this an achievement Abila should be very proud of.

Alternatives Considered

MIP Fund Accounting

This is the first non-profit I have worked for and I am fortunate they chose to use Abila. My previous account experience with a for-profit industry I used MAS 200. While the two systems have some of the similar appearances and functionalities, Abila is easier to use with multiple programs. I can't compare the two side by side as I use Abila in a much broader spectrum and I am unaware if MAS offers like-features.

We have looked at Peachtree and other custom applications for an enterprise organization. Those products might be more robust - but for a small business, our needs are basic. This is easy to learn, intuitive and affordable. It's easy to install and maintain. Even non-technical business owners benefit from QuickBooks - and business owners that are not accountants!

Return on Investment

MIP Fund Accounting

  • We were using an outdated version of Great Plains previously. It was DOS based, and only one user could even use it. I can't even describe the difference that has obviously made.
  • We can produce information so much more timely and in a better format than with Great Plains.
  • We outsourced payroll for a while, but came back to Abila because we found it was just as easy.

  • QuickBooks Premier Accountant version streamlines my processing of tasks making it easy to quickly switch between windows thus reducing time it takes to perform bulk of accounting entries.
  • QuickBooks Premier is a desktop version and has to be installed on client's computer to provide access for the business owners. That can be time consuming and limits flexibility that online/cloud-based platform offers.
  • Billable time tracking is a great functionality that helps me a lot in my business.
