Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

We use MIP Fund Accounting for keeping track of revenues and expenses for our grants, some end at 12/31 each year and some end at June 30. We use to it to keep up with donations and other funding not related to grants. We also use it for payroll and all payroll related reports.
  • We use revenue and expense reports to keep track of grants, different grants have different year end dates and the reports help to keep up. Some of our grants just ended on June 30, others will end December 31. We have another that ends in October, so it would be hard to keep up without a good program.
  • The payroll system also helps keep track of which employees are funded to the different grants.
  • I would like to use budget and forecasting, but we have not really had time to learn that part of MIP.
  • Not sure about the ROI- it is costly to upgrade every year. I have called before and asked about a payment plan and was quickly advised that it was not possible. It can be hard to come up with the $1000. every year.
Yes, we are able to track many funds and multiple funding sources. We use the fund codes to help keep track of each of the grants and their beginning and ending dates.
We actually did not choose the MIP programs. The Department of Elder Affairs and the local Lead agency chose the product for all of the senior centers in our region.
Keeping track of the different funds and the services is helpful. We report our information to the Department of Elder Affairs and it would be great if we could set up MIP to match their reporting format. We have to take our information and input it into the DOEA reports and it can be time consuming.
