We use an external Computer Professional who is able to take care of most of our needs remotely. He does updates and troubleshooting through TeamViewer. Our Accounting and Human Resource staff are tech savvy and able to navigate the software to get any necessary Agency reporting completed accurately and efficiently. We are able to get all of our Government requirements through Abila Fund Accounting.

One needs a good grounding in general accounting and non-profit accounting. A deep knowledge of how the system works, and doesn't work.

2 - We have an IT Director who works with all our software applications. We also have an IT Systems Administrator who provides the ongoing support by implementation of all updates for all workstations, troubleshooting any system-related issues, and assists if you request help in making a call to Abila Support to be present and answer any of the technical questions that might arise as your case is resolved.

4 - We have 2 accounting clerks and 2 bookkeepers that all use MIP accounting. We use MIP to pay all of our invoices from various vendors both large and small. We also use MIP to do all of our year end audit reports. and it is really helpful to use it to quickly calculate and invoice the total cost for a specific vendor, or various vendors.

MIPS does not require any specialized skills beyond the basic accounting skills required of my staff. This ease of use is what makes MIPS so good for new staff. I have about 13 years of experience using the Fund Accounting module of MIPS and have encountered virtually every situation imaginable. So I am the primary support person. When I encounter a situation beyond my experience, the MIPS Support team is always available to help.

1 - We have an in-house contractor who deals a lot with the backend issues related to this software. I do know he's generally positive in regards to Abila's performance in this regard. He does not know a lot of the front-end report building functionality of Abila, he's not a developer in that sense, but he's stated that that kind of end user report design/creation is not easy to pick up with this software.

2 - The Technology unit supports Abila because Abila is hosted on our own server. Most of the support is fairly minimal but there are annual updates on Abila software as well as annual tax reporting software that needs to be upgraded for 1099 records distribution. There is a network administrator is provides this support as well as a network support to upgrade software on a user level.

2 - Basic installation of MIP is pretty straight forward. A small company planning to only use the basic functions should get along ok with 1 or 2 computer savvy employees. For medium or larger organizations, I'd recommend someone on staff that knows and understands Windows Server and SQL Server fairly well. Database and report setup can get complicated very quickly.

2 - Accounting experience and background are very important in using any accounting software. Our in house accountant and myself (I am the accounting assistant) are the two people who use and support the Abila accounting software on a regular daily basis.

I use the support of Abila MIP for the majority of the issues I encounter. There haven't been many. The biggest issue I have had with the software is migrating it from one computer to another when I have had an upgrade. At that time I have simply used our IT support which is outsourced.

2 - Only 2 of us in the Finance Department. Once we got going in 2012 with the software, we have been able to handle on our own with only a few support calls - when something unusual happens. We use the online hosted version

10 - We have four employees with 10+ years experience using MIP and we have three with 3+ years and 3 with less than 2 years of experience using MIP. MIP is very user-friendly when you know each tabs functionality. All of the employees using MIP have learning curves; however, once they learn to use MIP they find it easy to use.
