Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP)

It is being used by our accounting department exclusively. It helps us track all of our deposits and payables for our organization. It also is very helpful for importing entries from our different third party apps.
  • Export to Excel - MIP handles this better than our previous accounting programs.
  • Chart of Accounts - MIP uses a segment based chart of accounts which was much better than our previous system that used a liner based chart of accounts.
  • There have been a few occasions where an update to the MIP software has created a few new issues that do affect our day to day operations. I don't receive any notifications regarding any current known issues for the products that we use and I think that would be helpful to know on a timely basis. Often times I don't know about the new issues until I call support and find out.
  • We would love an online based, cloud solution version of our MIP program.
  • Overall we have been able to better manage our accounting data through MIP because of its ability to handle our multiple locations and importing of data better than our previous system.
  • MIP has also had a positive impact on our reporting compared to previous accounting databases. With its exporting to Excel function that doesn't majorly impair the formatting, we have saved time.
Ultimately the choice to move to MIP was for the amount of features we were able to get for the price. We also were able to use Microix, a third party purchase order software tool, that integrated directly into the budget in MIP for our employees to see live real time updates for their departmental budgets and spending. No other system offered this capability that we were looking for and needed.

Using MIP Fund Accounting

So far this is the easiest to use accounting system our organization has used, but it does have some room to improve. Overall though it is a great accounting system.
  • Managing roles for user permissions is very easy to update and maintain.
  • Finding the appropriate report for information you need can sometimes be time consuming since you have to guess and check to understand which reports contain which information.
