Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

MIP is used only by Finance department staff for disbursements processing (AP) and general ledger (some but not all Financial Reporting). It is not user friendly to be used by non finance staff. It has very limited and limiting business process workflows. Budgeting is only a reporting function. It is one of the reasons finance staff spends over 80% of time on transactional activities rather than analytical and added value activities.
  • MIP database structure uses independent segments (compared to Financial Edge's account strings)
  • Approval workflow should be automated
  • Session manager should allow for more than one approver
  • Importing should be simple and easy not requiring DEF file
  • Cash account data for reconciliation should be organized based on effective date not document date
  • Drill down and drill back (e.g. GL to AP to GL) for quicker analysis
  • Missed opportunities to add value to organization
  • Transparency and visibility is very low
  • Staff overworked and frustrated
Better than Financial Edge but trailing all others
[MIP is well suited for] Small businesses with very few and simple transactions.
