MIP Fund Accounting™ is a configurable fund accounting solution. The solution includes functionality for fund accounting, procurement, budgeting, payroll, human resources, timekeeping, fixed asset management, grant management, and dashboards for nonprofits and government agencies.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/vJ/iG/BC1772P0KCTC.PNGGreat for Non-Profits!We utilize MIP Fund accounting for all of our accounting needs. We are a program based company, so we track revenue and expenses per program and general funds. All of the accounting/finance department currently utilizes the entire program and we are starting to make limited access budgeting available to program managers. . Upper level management utilizes the financial statements. We use the budgets, encumbrances, expanded GL reports, and monthly financials to prepare monthly reports for each of the program managers. This packet enables them to track their progress on fund spending, expense tracking, and available funds after encumbrances. Extremely useful for them. As we are a non-profit functioning on grants and contracts, the ability to track by fund is extremely useful. We definitely utilize the budgets to track progress on each fund, and to compare incoming expenses to fund availability. This helps keep the funds on track and to keep them within their budget limits. Cannot overemphasize the benefits of the budget comparison availability and ease of tracking. We also use the payroll function, and web time sheets. While we really like the Accounting modules, the payroll is not our favorite. While it links well to the accounting module, the payroll system truly needs streamlined and simplified.,Tracks budget amounts and availability very smoothly and the reports are easy to read and utilize. The encumbrance tracking is excellent and makes staying on budget much easier. The general ledgers are easy to access and read. Information by funding source is easy to track and access. Like the 1099 coding functions.,Payroll module is too complex and requires too much duplication of information input. This is the most confusing system I have ever utilized. It needs to be streamlined and duplications removed. Some information has to be entered in 2-3 locations, much too time consuming and easy to overlook. The payroll tax reporting is very much outdated-have worked with much cheaper software that did a much better job of processing tax returns and W-2/W-3's. While we like the accounting, we would certainly like to switch the payroll system for something better. Drill-down ability on the GL would be nice.,8,Like the ability to closely monitor how we are performing to budget-excellent!

All general accounting and financial reporting is performed via MIP. In addition, the purchasing department uses MIP to enter encumbrances to track open purchase orders. Use of MIP has fostered collaboration amongst various departments whose responsibilities impact financial reporting and monitoring of budgets. MIP makes producing financial reports very easy and the ability to quickly modify any report is very helpful.,MIP export to MS Excel functionality is so easy to use and helps us to quickly begin research and/or analysis. The reporting features allow us to pick and choose which columns/fields we would like to see on reports. The option to include or exclude unposted transactions provides a good mechanism for what-if scenarios as it relates to financial statement amounts. The year-end adjustment feature is new for us however it saves valuable time when reviewing transactions/reporting in preparation for our annual audit.,I'd like a better way to forecast expense that allows me to use a different multiplier or factors to augment individual line items. I would like the ability to develop the budget within the software so it would be easier for variance analysis between current budget and new budget or current actuals vs proposed budget,10,The most positive impact MIP had on our overall business objectives was to reduce the amount of time to produce useful reports. We no longer need to convert text files to MS Excel. Being able to add and delete columnar/field data prior to generating the reports has made staff members more productive. Common chart of accounts to use for any center and/or grant,We have definitely achieved the benefit from MIP's design for managing multiple funds from multiple sources as well as across fiscal years. We have two grants currently and one contract that all have different grant budget/contract periods. Comparisons to budget can be performed for each independently and by our agency's fiscal year for audit purposes. This helps us to comply with grant or contract regulations,,Prosoft Solutions,,Adaptive Insights,2,Financial Accounting and Reporting Budget to Actual Reporting Cash Management and Bank Reconciliation,We are still exploring ways to reduce the effort to forecast annual expenses and create financials for our annual report,Direct Budgeting in MIP rather than using another software for the budgeting modeling we require,10,11,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,I would spend more time on understanding our existing challenges to get a better idea of how those could be met by the software.,Third-party professional services,No,Change management was minimal,Training staff to use the software Working with consultant to structure software for the agency's needs,9,No,9,No,Not at this time.,Generating Financial Reports Bank Reconciliations,Getting Budget Amounts into the software,10Abila MIP just worksAbila MIP is used by the finance, procurement, and payroll departments. It is used to track all company expenditures and grant - both public and private - reconciliation.,Abila MIP provides detailed customization to fit your organization rather than force you to use an out of the box configuration that may not suit your needs. Abila MIP is easy to set up and uses industry standard SQL Server back-end so backups and restores are easy. Abila MIP has good reporting options with simple customizations. Abila MIP support is always available.,More customized reporting so data exports to products like GrantVantage could be accomplished by the end-user rather than Database administrator. Official support for application virtualization like Microsoft App-V or VMware Thin-App so deployment is easier. MSI packaging for installation and updates through group policy. No local administrator access to install or configure application. Integration with Active Directory.,9,We have passed all our audits and that is what matters most.,We have achieved this goal by using MIP to keep track of rack grant and the expenditures against it.,Yes,10,No,Each year, creating 1099's are a difficult hurdle for our environment. It's complex and utilizes some of Microsoft's enterprise level products. Last year's (2017) 1099's were especially difficult, however, once technical support was called and our environment explained with the assistance of our internal IT department we were able to resolve the issue. The 1099's were printed without any data loss or requirement to start over.We're OK with MIP; it was our only option.MIP is our accounting and scholarship system. We keep track of all donations, scholarship distributions, and write all invoices and checks from MIP as well. Our accountant then uses it for reconciliation and adjustments/Journal Entries.,The Interface is easy to understand. It is a typical accounting system. Not as intuitive as I would want, but the accountant loves it better than Quickbooks. As far as accounting software, it appears to be a powerful solution. Yes, it does. Again, the accountant loves it. In our area, it is widely used. Lots of MIP users, yes.,Creating reports is not easy. Not the best with reports. Not intuitive. Integration with sister product FR50 is horrible. They may be owned by the same company, but the interfaces, reports, etc. are not at all similar. How we use it for scholarship management is less than desirable. We had to "make it work".,8,It took a long learning curve to get up and running. We hope after another year we will see a good ROI. We are "used to it" and it is working.,We have 50 sub-funds. Data is pushed over from FR50.

We use the Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Budgeting and Fixed Assets modules. It addresses all of our business needs and it is very user friendly in terms of use and ability to learn the tasks. The Report Manager feature is also very intuitive and customization is easy and efficient.,Budgeting - provides the ability to work across fiscal years as we have many federal, state and local grants that require different time periods. Once it is set up, then it works seamlessly. Fixed Assets - This module tracks assets and depreciation based on your input and ties this information to the GL in an effective and efficient manner. Report Manager - reporting is very easy as you have many canned reports that can be easily customized to your preferences. You also have the ability to segregate your reports, by name, and store in a file for your easy retrieval and use.,Inputting the budget information can be cumbersome and difficult to understand. It took me a while to get the functionality correct. Understanding which input module to use for what purpose can be a little confusing. For instance Accounts Receivable has areas to input credits, receipts or manual invoices. This can be confusing at first. Setting up codes for new employees or clients can be confusing also as you must input this information into two different setup screens.,9,It's been a positive impact in terms of time saved, personnel, and functionality for the accounting staff. My entire staff enjoys the product and are pleased with the ease of use and reporting capabilities.,Yes, we have multiple sources of funds within our organization and the benefit is tremendous and now we are able to track these funds. The reporting by fund is intuitive and creates a very seamless process.

Three support specialist went through a few steps to get me connected again very quickly. They are very polite, patient and professional!Abila MIP - Not my first choiceAbila MIP is the accounting software we use for our organization's general financial needs. We maintain all accounting, for both operating finances and charitable endeavors, with this system. It's use is restricted to the Finance Department in our relatively small organization, but the reports we produce using this software is used by all members of our extended staff. All reporting to our Board of Directors is also used with Abila reports that we have developed ourselves over time.,Abila MIP Fund accounting is functional and robust. In terms of it's efficiency, it can provide the flexibility you'd want in regards to customizing it's functionality. But I do admit that I sometimes find it unwieldy to learn, and perhaps not the most intuitive software that I've ever come across. We found the pricing to be competitive when compared to other softwares, and it has improved over the years we've used it, but at times the support could be better. I've noticed a big difference in ability between customer reps in the times I've called them.,I find that Abila MIP is not at all robust when compared to its competitors. I find a lot of the functionality limited when compared to other similar software suites, like Microsoft AX for example. There are glitches with Abila MIP. Our auditors noticed that the bank reconciliation reports did not match the financial statements. When I called Abila customer support to find out why this was, he was evasive when I asked him whether this was a glitch or not. He finally admitted this was "a problem that had to be remedied".,6,Abila have been strict about their pricing. We did not use their customer service option for 11 months out of a 12 month period. We tried to negotiate a better service price based on this (we are a cost sensitive non-profit) but were refused. I would've expected better flexibility considering what we paid to Abila. Abila enabled us to easily update our accounting system with minimal issues. It was easy enough to change the chart of accounts, and there were no glitches afterwards.This was much appreciated, as we realized this could've presented us with a big learning curve we'd rather not waste our resources on. We completely upgraded versions of Abila this year and their work with our own IT team was good, although we did pay a premium for this service.,I suppose so. There is a lot of functionality of Abila that we do not use...I don't find the interface particularly intuitive to be honest. We do use Abila to keep track of our financial assets in terms of the grants and scholarships we award on an annual basis, but perhaps not to the extent that we could. I do think we could do a lot more, and I think that perhaps Abila's support could've helped us better use the software's functionality in this regard.,Microsoft,Microsoft Dynamics AX, ADP ezLaborManager,1,Financial reporting for the organization, most notably to upper management. Documentation of the financial operations of the organization (general accounting, record & information storage, etc...),None really.,Better reporting and related functionality. Better integration with our interrelated peripheral management information systems. For example our Paypal account, website, etc...,10,2,No,Price Product Features Prior Experience with the Product,If I had to do it again, I would've paid much more attention at fleshing out what functionality we would like to get out of the new software system, rather than how well it integrated to the current system. Admittedly we were happy that our upgrade went smoothly, conversely I don't think we improved our use of the software as perhaps we could've. As a smaller organization, we were sensitive to these kind of costs to consider.,4,Yes,Once of their product reps is very knowledgeable, so I was happy when I got him because the issue was 'resolved' quiclyNon Profit accounting solutionsWe use Abila MIP to do the process on most of our checks. It is an easy software to use, and it allows our organization to keep track of all of our expense records. We can check our records at all times, and verify dates and totals paid. We also find it to be very helpful for our year end audits. We can run a variety of reports sorted by GL accounts, by dates, and other. The only thing I don't like is that some reports are buggy. For example I cannot run a report that includes both check numbers, and GL numbers on the same report. The tech support is excellent. I have called them up for some issues and they usually resolve my issues the same day.,Ability to run various reports based on the data available Ability to import Excel data into MIP Tech support is fast,Reports could be more functional - have the ability to have both GLs and check numbers on reports Some issues with license validation at random the software will decide not to work Addition of new features more often Add address verification support like ADP. ADP can verify addresses without having to google.,8,A lot of time saving on processes. With the addition of the import feature it has cut our data entry in half.,It is very effective in keeping track of our different funds, locations, and GL accounts. By entering data and recording location codes and fund accounts in our transactions with MIP, we can later create custom reports that can arrange this date into multiple informational reports that can be extracted in seconds.,4,Cutting checks Running reports creating vendors,Running custom reports based on data entered during use. Importing excel files directly into MIP software.,We are expanding to various states, MIP software will be a must accounting tool in future offices.,10,4,No,Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Vendor Reputation Analyst Reports,We would probably search for the same features that we currently use. Maybe take a recommendation from another labor union or non profit organization.,No,8,No,I had to call Abila to sort out a glitch I had while importing excel files. I only had to wait on the phone line for a brief period before I was helped. The technician knew exactly what the issue was and was able to give me a resolution in less than 5 minutes.,setting up vendors is really easy. It takes no more than 5 minutes to create a new vendor and have the ability to pay this vendor in less than 5 minutes. looking up past vendor payments is also real easy and can be modified to have a selected date range for particular queries. During audits it is really easy to run custom reports , with filters ranging from Vendor id's to GL's to specific date ranges.,some reports are still flawed. I still can't understand why I cant have a report that has both check numbers and GL's on the same report. the occasional glitch at start that causes error while logging in can be annoying.,No,8You Won't Go Wrong, if You Choose MIPS Fund AccountingWe use only the Fund Accounting module of MIPS and it is only used by the five members of the Accounting Department. It has been a very effective tool for accurately stating our organization's financial position at any time. Its Fund capability allows us to track and report on Restricted Funds (i.e. Donations and Grants designated for specific purposes). My staff and I have been using MIPS for 10+ years at my current organization and it has been very reliable and generally required a short learning curve for new staff.,Tracking Restricted Funds - It is very easy to see at a glance where we stand with the receipt and use of specific project funding. The Ability to Keep Fiscal Years Open - Some program force you to close out your year within a relatively short period of time. MIPS can be kept open for as long as I need to complete my annual Audit preparation. This relieves pressure. Allows me to easily review my staff's entries, invoices, etc. before they are posted. This eliminates potential errors and corrections.,MIPS needs the ability to drill down. There is currently too much need to write down invoice numbers, JE numbers, etc. in order to cross-reference (view) related documents. MIPS needs to expand the availability of certain data fields. I would like to see more fields available under the Contents Tab when designing reports. Too many times, I will be able to choose a certain field under one report but be unable to access the same field in another report. This requires me to design two or more reports to get what I need. Improve the Historical Invoices Function. Currently it allows you to print the original invoice. If a correction was made afterwards (using the same invoice number), it creates two entries with identical invoice numbers and if you select and print the wrong one, it will not reflect the change. I realize that the Statement capability can address this, but to me Statements should be used to reflect billing amounts and payments received.,10,Though MIPS has not had an easily measurable, tangible impact on our ROI, our ability to satisfy our Funders' reporting requirements has had the intangible benefits of demonstrating Professionalism and Compliance. This makes it easier for us to get renewal funding each year. The accuracy and simplicity of tracking our results by fund also makes annual budgeting process much easier. Likewise, the ease of use of MIPS allows us to get by with less staff than might have been required with a "harder" software package.,Absolutely! This may be the single best feature of MIPS. Separating Funds is an absolute requirement for a nonprofit organization that receives Restricted funds from different sources. This process is easy with MIPS.,,DonorPerfect, Interact,,Billing General Ledger Reporting Accounting for Restricted Funds,We have set up individuals' Liability accounts to track the client checking accounts we manage for our Residential and Supported Living Clients as their Rep Payees. We chose this approach in lieu of setting up separate funds for each client because it provided simplicity and accuracy, at the same time.,If we ever choose to utilize additional modules, it will allow us a smooth link.,10,,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Prior Experience with the Product,I might ask about the product's ability to drill down.,Implemented in-house,This software was implemented by my predecessor immediately before I arrived 12 years ago. I know that there was a lot of upfront planning to determine the desired structure of accounts/reports etc. But I did not here of any significant concerns, because Customer support assisted every step of them way. I have had minimal problems with utilizing the software. I believe this is because it was set up properly.,9,Yes,9,Yes,Frankly, I cannot recall a time when Abila support did not provide me with exceptional support. They stand 100% behind their product, are very knowledgeable about how their product works and are not afraid to acknowledge known problems or issues with their products. Regardless they always do their best to resolve my problems in a timely and courteous manner.,All aspects of Accounts Receivable are smooth and intuitive. All aspects of Accounts Payable are smooth and intuitive. Abila Fund Accounting makes it very easy to analyze historical data for trends and input errors. The Bank Reconciliation capabilities make the reconciliation process smooth and accurate for my staff.,There is no easy "drill down" capability Though the "Data Integrity Check" capabilities are excellent at identified problems with the data, you must call Customer Support to resolve the problems. The add formula's capability is not always intuitive.,9Abila Accounting for Non-Profits-Awesome!I along with our CFO use Abila for non-profits for accounting and fundraising needs. I have been doing bookkeeping for 20+ years and have used other accounting software in the past but feel that Abila is much more user friendly and far superior to them. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking at accounting software for no-profit or business purposes.,Reports are flexible in the choices of information you want to get. They can be easily customized to your specific needs. Corrections to unposted and posted entries are easily made. I like that the accounting and payroll are now together on the same application instead of two separate ones. Before they were combined I had to open two separate apps, one for accounting and one for payroll and keep switching back and forth between them. Now it is just the one and it is so much easier and convenient for them to be combined.,We have employees that work different shifts and get a pay differential depending on what shift they are working. I need to do two separate paychecks for the different pay rates for those employees. It would be easier if there was a way to do a single check with the split rates on it. Although the reports are easy to customize there are some instances when you want certain information on a report and the choice for that information is not available for you to choose. You can easily reverse and copy a posted accounts payable entry, but that option is not available for checks issued in a write checks session. You would either have to do a journal entry or void the check and re-write it with the same check no. and print it on plain paper. Kind of a pain.,10,Abila has been a great tool for tracking donors and their donations as well as grants, both private and government and putting them in the proper general ledger accounts, departments and divisions. It has also been a great way to distribute employees salaries to restricted funds from grants and unrestricted funds from other sources.,We are able to track and manage donors and their donations and grants form private and government sources, whether it is to our organization or our Endowment Foundation.,,Microsoft Office 365,2,Payroll Financial reports Grant tracking Accounts payable Cash donation entries and tracking,employee hours various wage earning codes number of employees that were employed at specific date ranges.,I don't have anything specific at this time,10,2,No,Product Features Product Usability,I wasn't involved in the selection process as I wasn't here at that time.,Implemented in-house,I don't know as I wasn't employed here when the implementation was made.,1,In-person training Self-taught,8,Yes.

The ability to structure the chart of accounts to make this possible is available thru Abila and has proven to be invaluable. For example we receive funds from the state unit on aging - Older Americans Act funding; state funding, department of labor funding, etc. The Older Americans Act funding is broken down by Title i.e., IIIB, IIIC,IIID,IIE. The state unit requires that we track and report out on all of these separately. Structuring of the chart account makes this possible.,,Microsoft Office 2016,1,Payroll Reporting Financial Management,Create reports to drop directly into our annual report Provide all necessary schedules to do annual 990 Preparing annual audited financial statement worksheets,human resources benefit tracking,10,3,Yes,Price Product Usability Product Reputation Third-party Reviews,Do not believe I would change.,Professional services company,Yes,Change management was minimal,Employee attitude to change purchasing necessary hardware to meet specifications cost,9,No,9,No,It was before they perfected upgrades. I was having a SQL Server issue. I allowed the tech support person to control my computer and my issues were resolved. I thought I would be late running payroll, which caused much anxiety for me. I was amazed at how quickly the issue could be resolved.,Data Input Reporting Electronic Fund Transfer,Using budget worksheet Selecting items when transferring payroll to general ledger Correcting payroll distribution errors,Yes, but I don't use it,9Honest opinion of MIPMIP is used by the entire organization. We currently use the accounts payable, general ledger and budgeting modules. MIP is excellent for allocating costs across all programs. It allows us to easily run reports based on project codes as well as program codes. It saves time and key stroke errors by being able to save allocations used frequently.,Cost allocation. It's easy to set up distribution codes to easily allocate costs. The Budget module is easy to use. It's easy to distribute the budget across all 12 months. Ability to save general ledger entries. Saves time when entering monthly recurring transactions.,Reporting. If you select the wrong option in the drop down box, you need to go back to the start. Still no change in this. Credits in A/P. If I need to use a distribution code for a credit, I need to enter the invoice total as a positive number and then change it to negative after the allocation. I would like to be able to pay vendors without creating a vendor record, e.g., one-time vendors. We often have vendors that we pay one time and they have to have a record created for them.,9,I cannot think of an impact MIP has had on our business. It is the only computer based system the agency has used and has been using it for 18 years. There have been no instances that have not had a solution using the software.,Blackbaud CRM,Microsoft Office 2016, Adobe Acrobat DC,,Ability to track multiple projects Run the necessary reports for funders Track the issuance of 1099s.,I do not know of any innovative or unexpected ways we use the software other than the purpose it was intended for.,I do not know of any additional ways MIP will be used in the future.,9,1,No,Price Product Features,I would definitely speak to other users of the software as well as visiting some companies that use the software. It would be good to be able to see it in action in a real setting as well as talk to the users who deal with the software every day and understand how it really works.,Don't know,I am unaware how implementation went as I was not employed by the agency at the time.,5,Self-taught,Yes, the software is easy to use. The only training I received was from the previous user who was not using it to its full potential. The ability to export files to excel had never been explored by the previous user. When I first tried to use it, I was unable. I then discovered it was due to the software not being set to export.,9,I do not have any specific recommendations.,No - we have not done any custom code,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,There are none I can mention.,9,No,I do not recall anytime that I received exceptional support for this product. I probably only call support one or two times per year and do not have many issues with the software. I cannot even recall the issue I last contacted them for. Any time I have called, I have been completely satisfied with the support staff.,General ledger entries are easy to enter. Very straight forward entry. Accounts Payable is also easy to work with.,Budgets. It would be helpful to be able to take the prior year budget and edit and save as the new year budget. That would make things much easier. It isn't straight forward on how to print the budget once you have the entry ready.,Yes, but I don't use it,9,9,10,10,None,5,No,File import/export,As far as the usage with Adobe and Excel, it has been wonderful to be able to run a report and export it to Adobe for ease of sharing the information.,5,5,I am unaware of what was negotiated during the sale of the software.,I have no comment on the vendor as I have had no contact with them.,Yes,I cannot recall what the most recent upgrades were for.,I hope to see better reporting as far as ease of navigating within the report area of the software.,No,NoWe Have Been With Abila MIP for 4 years!We are using Abila MIP in the Finance Department. It is our only accounting software. We use the Accounts Payable, Cash Disbursements, Cash Receipts and Accounts Receivable Billings [modules].The one thing I like which is of great importance; I do not call often, but their support department has always solved my problem. They can log in to your system using Citrix. When you call in for an issue you are on hold for a while - but you can leave your phone number for a call back and they have always called me back!We were able to customize our general ledger coding and departments and do department level financials and reports as well as organizational financials and reports. It has a drill down feature in several places (there could be more). We are required to have a yearly audit and Abila MIP has been able to produce the reports and financials required.I just wish they would include the customer's address when you are posting in cash receipts,When you use the support Line, they call you back if you leave a callback number. Easy to use and learn for data entry and basic, daily use, and frequently used programs. General Ledger, department and program coding can be customized. They have enhanced the bank reconciliation process and voiding checks in accounts payable - both are important to me. They do improve the software - they do not let it go stagnant.,For 1099s the program is user unfriendly. The program could exclude YTD payments under $600 automatically. In accounts payable entries, vendor addresses come up automatically. Need to add that functionality to Accounts Receivable Receipts module and Cash Receipts module. Cash Receipts module needs to be integrated with Accounts Receivable. Donors in cash receipts need to be fully credited with donation (Revenue) even if processing fees are deducted. Rather than recording the full donation to the donor's account, the amount of the deposit (less processing fees) is recorded in the donor record. A serious problem in my mind; forces you to use full Accounts Receivable module which I only use for billings to largest donors. I would still like them to show the address of the customer when you are entering receipts in the cash receipts module.,9,It has allowed us to record revenue and expenses with relative ease of use which helps us more closely track expenses by program and provide accurate financial statements. It provides the options to break out revenues and programs in great detail - great for tracking individual programs,We are able to track a number of revenue sources. We are able to report them at the program level as well as department level and organization level. Abila MIP provides for unrestricted,temporarily restricted and restricted funds. We are able to produce reports that record Federal, State, and municipal monies as well as grants and individual & business donations. We are able to produce reports that are necessary for 990 requirements. Still happy with breakout of multiple funds. Works well,,2,Writing checks cash receipts module financial statements,customizing revenue & expense tracking of small programs,interface with development software - SalesForce,9,4,No,9,I was locked up - don't remember the problem or what application I was in -couldn't use the software. They were swift at getting me back running again,Entering invoices writing checks,managing recurring entries was difficult to understand when we first started out,9Ideal for Head Start with Multiple funding streamsIt is used by the finance and accounting department. Our reports are shared with the entire organization - particularly the Board of Directors and Policy Council.We are a multi-funded small non profit ($8million) and it definitely makes accounting easier with a package than can cost allocate multiple streams of funding.,Multiple funding stream cost allocations Ease of setting up customized reports Relatively easy to learn,Encumbrance package is a bit more confusing Personalization of reports is sometimes limited Local training is limited,8,Employee efficiency Better reporting Encumbrance model caused alot of unnecessary problems,Mas 90,Microsoft Access, Microsoft Exchange,,Minimal support needed Ease of use Multiple funding sources Ease of developing reports,Combined funding report,Better use of encumbrances,9,3,Yes,Product Features Product Usability,We are pleased with our selection and vendor selection for install and training.,Professional services company,Yes,Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled,no significant issues. We were well prepared. Wessell Consulting did excellent job.,10,Yes,10,Yes,Our third party vendor (reseller) Wessell Accounting always respons within 24 hours - usually within 1 hour! Had a serious issue with payrolla nd they "fixed" it wihin 1 hour - saving the day.,Reporting Cost allocation Reoccuring bills,Encumbrances,8MIP is a great fund-accounting software program.We use Abila MIP Fund Accounting, not only for our daily operations, but for payroll and human resources. We utilize most of the functions offered with the software and find that they are user friendly. MIP Fund Accounting is easy for even our newest employees to understand. This software is a huge assist to our company. When an issue arises we contact MIP support and have an answer in a short amount of time. The staff is very friendly and professional.,Allowing reports to be exported into a PDF or Excel worksheet is very beneficial when presenting to our board. Emailing a report to a funding source without having to print it out and scan is very smooth and helps when you are in a hurry. The ability to filter for the exact item(s) that you need help when auditors need verification of those exact details. This is valuable for helping our department locate those areas that need explanation as well.,It would be helpful to locate an item when we are given a check number rather than the name on the check. When we process our payroll we have to manually remove extra coding so that our salaries are not all over the general ledger. It would be nice if there were a better way for this function to be eliminated. It would be great if the process for using Atrix was smoother. We have issues almost every year for one reason or another.,10,MIP helps us produce information quickly.,We have approximately 25 funds that we utilize with MIP. We receive revenue from over 9 different funding sources. We are able to keep each fund separate by year and source. MIP helps us track multiple funds by numbering each fund by year. This process allows us to close out a certain year and start a new one seamlessly.,,Upsafe Free Office 365 Cloud Backup, Adobe Acrobat DC,10,MIP is used primarily by the accounting department to assist in preparing monthly reports, payroll, and accounts payable. MIP is essential in helping us with our daily activities, monthly and quarterly reports, and annual audit. We use MIP to process our 1099's and W-2's every year making this process quicker and easier, considering we process over 240 W-2's and around a thousand 1099's. The only drawback in the past has been the communication of MIP with Aatrix when uploading our files. We have worked through those situations with the help of MIP support, but in a couple of those years, we had to start over. We have the HR module and use it for our employees; however, we were not able to use the EWS module because it lacked functionality that we needed for our employees.,We use MIP to help with our profit sharing reporting. We have found ways to put most of the information into one report and email to our administrator. We have found ways to track missing TIN's by printing out reports and then exporting into Word to print out letters in the mail merger.,Would love to use MIP for employees timekeeping, if some of the needed functions were added in the future we might consider switching to EWS. Would love to see if there are ways to produce charts and graphs to use in board reports.,10,10,Not Sure,Product Features Product Reputation,I think that MIP would be the choice regardless of the evaluation or selection process. I receive calls about our accounting software and if we would consider looking at their product, but we are happy with MIP and are not considering a switch.,Online training,10,9,They helped us set up our direct deposit function years ago and also helped us with the ACH process to pay some of our vendors. In both cases, they were very patient even when having to repeat or restate the steps we needed to complete. I appreciate the understanding and willingness to help that each technician offers when we call.FunctionalAbila MIP is used across the organization. It is able to bifurcate expenses by numerous categories. I can gather information such as staff hours that come from payroll as well.,Allows for multiple distribution codes. Allows user defined fields. Good telephone support. Fairly user friendly.,The fixed asset module is very weak. There are numerous glitches. You cannot modify a distribution code during the lifetime of the asset once set up. Help screens could be improved significantly. Better integration with drillpoint report writer. Budgeting ability is nonexistent. Budgeting needs to be done outside of the G/L and essentially we need to manually input thousands of fields for the budget. Lack of support for integration for positive pay.,7,Payroll data information information is much better than with previous system. Audits are clean. Information can be provided easily although the trial balance reports are very clunky. We can find information easily.,It hasn't made that much of an impact [on our ability to manage multiple funds from multiple sources.],,2,Can break down expenses well good for cost reporting can import allocations,can collect staff hours,If reporting was easier we could get more information. I wish budgeting was easier,7,7,No,7,Yes,Once we had to close a year and it did not close properly. The support team wrote a patch repair program specifically for us.Great Accounting System for All Non-ProfitsWe use Abila MIP Fund Accounting as our accounting software for the entire organization. It is being used by the accounting department of approximately 5 people, including myself. Since we are solely funded by grants and contributions, it keeps all our sources of funds segregated. It is very easy to use for this purpose.,Segregation of different types of funds. Reporting module very versatile. We have been able to create all different types of reports that our old system could not do. Accounts receivable system easy to use and track what's owed to the organization. Allocation module is a great tool for allocating out costs across the board.,The allocation module works off of one account code. If that account does not have activity for the period of the allocation, it will not run and we have to go back in and change it to an account that does have activity for the period. Another problem with the allocation module is in one that we have set up for fringe benefits. There is no way to set the fringe benefit rate. The allocation automatically pulls the rate that is entered for our overhead allocation and we need to manually change it to the correct rate.,10,There has been a very positive impact of MIP on our organization. We have been able to do more than we could with any other system. We can create and provide reports to management that we would not have been able to in the past.,Yes, we have completely achieved that benefit. We have many different sources of funding as previously noted. We transitioned to this system 9 years ago for this exact purpose.,fundware,QuickBooks Pro,2,Yes,9,No,Most of our support comes from an outside consulting firm.,Financial Reporting- you can customize most reports to your need Accounts receivable Journal Entries,Set up of 1099 vendors has some issues because we have vendors with expenses that require a 1099 and also expenses that don't. Imports- these are great, but they are not pre-set. You need to have a support person help you set them up. User Set up- You have to set up each and every aspect of the users tasks and sometimes tasks are in areas you wouldn't even think to look at. It would be easier if you could say, yes, give the person all rights to Accounts Payable, rather than having to check each task off. A copy function would also be helpful where you can copy from a previous user.,No,9Abila MIP great toolAbila allows for a much quicker way to produce financials statements than using Excel. Abila address unique needs that NFPs have. Abila also makes data entry extremely easy. MIP does a great job of balancing flexibility with ease of use.,Reporting Data entry Ease of use,More customization Statistical reporting Works much better as an on premise software than hosted,7,We cannot measure it but it made us more efficient,We only had one fund,,Sage Intacct, Nexonia Expenses,2,Tracking expenses by grants Tracking expenses by programs Tracking net assets by restriction,Use the purchasing module for check requests,allowing grant managers to track budget to actuals,1,10,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation,We would plan for a software that could grow with us.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Just the time to clean up old data,10,No,8,No,They helped with a data corruption and did not charge.,Reporting AP Invoices,Purchasing,Yes, but I don't use it,8One-Stop Shop for all your needs!We use Abila as our main accounting system to manage our federal and state grants. It is primarily used by our finance staff and CFO only.,Abila's functionality for our office includes fund accounting, grants managements, payroll, human resources, and timekeeping. It allows us to report on multiple cost centers for multiple organizations and programs across all grants on the federal and state level. The imbedded reports writer provides extensive reports and you can customize them anyway you want them or your board wants them.,Sometimes pulling reports or building the reports to give you the results you want is difficult to achieve. Creating budgets was a challenge at first as was updating those budgets when revisions occur. We would like to see a copy and paste function added so when entering or changing descriptions you don't have to continually keep typing them over and over.,9,Having all the modules in one convenient place has saved our company money as well as time. Our finance team is much more efficient because of the combined modules, its a one-stop shop! One negative impact is how long it takes someone to be trained to use the software effectively and efficiently.,Our company does use MIP to manage multiple funds from multiple funding sources, both federal and state, and it has the functionality to do this efficiently and effectively. Once you have a good training background, it is easier to convey the data the way management wants it and MIP makes it easy to do so.,,QuickBooks Premier,Not Sure,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Prior Experience with the Product,I wouldn't change anything.,No,10,No,We always get exceptional support, they have excellent customer service and the trainers are always available to answer any questions or assist you with any issues you may have. We even have a favorite trainer!,I love the fact that you can pull in data from Excel spreadsheets and vice versa.,Reporting and budget have been difficult and time consuming at first, but once you get the hang of it you are okay.,9Abilia - Take It or Leave It.It is being used by the whole organization. It is being used to track income and expenses by grant funding source, generate payroll and related reports, record and pay A/P, and record journal vouchers. It has given us the room to grow our reporting. As a grantee that receives a majority funds from the government, it allows us to provide more detailed reporting.,I particularly like the copy/rename reports features. It allows the user to make slight changes to reports they may use frequently and save the report with a new name. This saves time when detailed reports are needed quickly. I like the payroll function and the ability to allocate payroll between accounts rather than to calculate it manually. I appreciate the recaps at the bottom of the AP & JV screens which show the accounts being referenced and whether the transaction is balance. It is a good double check.,The print on the screen is so small (probably an 8 font), it is hard to read for older users. I would like to be able to change the name of a vendor without deleting it and then re-adding it which loses the history. Sometimes company names change but other aspects remain the same. Or you may mistype a name and need to correct it. There is no easy way to change the chart of accounts if you need to do renumbering. If the person establishing the chart of accounts isn't experienced with it, there is no way to correct the mistakes. This is true especially for the numbering order and leaving enough space between numbers. I wish there was a hard copy manual that clarifies what happens when specific information is typed or requested. For example: What happens in the system when you are writing a reversing journal entry. It allows for 4 different types of reversing entries, but doesn't identify the difference so one would know which one to select. I would like to be able to refer back to other reports when using the "drill-down". The system doesn't allow for that.,8,I was not part of the decision making process. I do not know the overall business objective. One must be very experienced working with integrated financial systems to get the best use of this software.,We are starting to use this feature more each month as I become more familiar with all that the software can do. We are still in the process of fully benefiting from this feature.,,2,1,Payroll Accounts Payable Financial Statement & reports by grant Ability to integrate with W-2s and year-end payroll reporting.,9,QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions,Yes,Product Features,I would have documentation on how and why this product was chosen, how it was implemented, etc.,Professional services company Don't know,9,In-person training,8,Again I know nothing about it.,8,No,Our vendor has provided us with excellent support.,The payroll tax system is particularly nice.,Learning the recurring entries has been tricky. I haven't been able to fully use the system the way I would like because it is hard to get all the information I need to make decisions.,8,8,8,9,The payroll system is integrated with Payroll taxes and Atrix.,No, not at this time.,File import/export,Really know what you are doing before trying to do integration.,9,10,If you need an immediate response or help, you may not be able to reach them. They are very good about answering e-mails and will call you back when they get a message.,I know there is probably an upgrade coming before the end of the year, but it has not been implemented yet. I would hope upgrades remove some of the difficulties in using the system. The integration with Atrix upgrades any tax law or payroll report form changes.,NoMIP Fund Accounting is So SoMIP is used for accounting, payroll and HR. It allows us to track expenses, payroll costs and manage employee data with the HR module.,Allows us to access the sql database which allows extensive reporting options. Track payroll and accounting expenses in one GL,You cannot put special characters into user defined fields, this will not allow payroll to process for an individual. Cannot delete unused distribution codes. Prompts to save a report every time there is a change, impractical. HR module instruction manual is written poorly and missing steps, it's obvious this hasn't been written by the same developers, needs to be reviewed.,4,We are able to see the entire picture using MIP, this is very helpful for future planning.,Yes, because we can allocate and track multiple sources we can plan appropriately.,,Microsoft Access,Yes,7,No,We had an issue with workers comp codes not refreshing. In a matter of minutes the tech trouble shot the issue and fixed it.I love MIP!MIP is being used to track revenue and expenses for UW Advancement, UW Alumni Association, and the UW Foundation. It allows us to cut data into many different slices or combine specific data with ease. It also allows us to upload data from the university financial system electronically which cuts down on time and entry errors.,It has a relational data base so the same segments can be used for several areas but still allow for specification in reporting. The review seats let us give access to people outside the finance department while maintaining the integrity of the data. Easily manipulate reporting selections to quickly make changes and be able to analyze data in several different ways - by segment, by date, by columns.,I would like to be able to post annual budget figures by cutting and pasting from Excel. We used to be able to do that but the feature disappeared a few years ago. The email feature does not work for us because of the configuration of the university servers. It would be great if you could explore the compatibility with large systems with several layers of security. The adding reports to the Favorites section does not always work. Several times I have not been able to find the report I want to add in the drop down list. This happens regardless of adding the report and shutting down the system and restarting it.,10,MIP has had a positive impact on ROI for us. The savings in staff hours has more than paid for the software and the annual maintenance fee. MIP has enabled us to provide accurate data in a variety of report types. MIP has given the report users access to timely data.,I believe we have achieved this benefit by being able to track revenues and expenses from different funding sources. We can run reports on the data by a specific source or in combination. The system also allows reporting across fiscal years which is great if the funding sources runs on a different reporting timeline than we do.,Microsoft Dynamics GP,Trello,14,1,Accurate and timely revenue and expense reporting to managers. Reporting transactions to managers and administrative staff.,We are able to record the same transactions in two legal entities.,Possibly use it for charts.,10,Yes,Product Features Product Usability Prior Experience with the Product Vendor Reputation,I would not do anything different.,Vendor implemented,No,Change management was minimal,Figuring out what segments to use. Trying to match the university legacy system with MIP so that transactions could be imported instead of entered manually.,10,9,No,Thankfully we have not had any problems that have required exceptional support.,Financial Reporting Budget Entry Transaction Entry,Maintaining system security Adding or deleting users Chart of accounts report,Yes, but I don't use it,10Abila is excellent product especially for experienced ones!!!Abila MIP Fund Accounting software is used by the Finance Director and AP/Payroll Technician. We have executive view users that can access the software to pull up information. Our finance director does the financial reports. Together, we process accounts payable, receivable, payroll, HR, [and provide] financial reports to board of directors, and various agencies for grant reporting. We are primarily a federally funded agency and this software keeps us in compliance. Abila MIP Fund Accounting was purchased for that reason.,There are several options for pulling posted general ledger reports based on how the user would like to extract information. Exporting in Excel in order to manually double check your work. HR and Payroll module work together well and makes less work for me.,For first time users this product can be overwhelming. May take a user about six months in order to feel comfortable using. Not being able to insert rows working in an entry. More default reports that are easier to find.,8,With experience this software is only as smart as the user. This software can do many things. The time to train staff on the software can be overwhelming. Financial reporting is a great tool.,We manage over twenty different funds and this software accommodates us. With the different segments we have endless ways of tracking our government funds.,,QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions,9,Yes,I had set up the wrong pay period dates and the gentleman made sure to stay on the line to help me correct and advised me of other concerns that I might encounter.,I use the HR and Payroll module and enjoy the features that streamline my work. Memorized transactions are great for journal vouchers and account payable. Auditing tracking is a great tool!,A new user may find this software overwhelming. This software requires a lot of setups in order to process AP or payroll. Reports may have YTD instead of PTD.,9

The call in support is terrific-they are friendly, know the product and aren't afraid to escalate if it is beyond their knowledge scope. They respond quickly. The online information is often confusing and doesn't answer the question.

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.

We usually have our issues resolved in the same call. There have been a few times that the technician was unable to help us and had to send to someone else. The next person has resolved our issue even if we had to submit our database for them to review.
