Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

We use MIP Fund Accounting as our main accounting software for our agency. We have about 40 different funding sources so MIP allows us to accurately allocate charges according to funding source. There are very few software programs that allow the ability to charge according to funding source usage like MIP Fund Accounting does.
  • MIP Fund Accounting allows distribution codes to be updated and used often.
  • MIP Fund Accounting has several coding options to allow the agency to be as specific as necessary with expenses and revenues.
  • MIP Fund Accounting has detailed payroll information for tracking and maintaining payroll data for years to come.
  • We use MIP Fund Accounting that is housed "in the cloud." There are several days connectivity gets slow or disconnects entirely. Since we are relying on servers outside of our control, the lag time trying to wait can be troublesome.
  • It would be nice if when a check is voided that the option was available to void the invoice that was used to create the check.
  • It would also be nice to eliminate a coding option when it has been deemed unnecessary from original setup.
  • MIP has saved a lot of time. Many activities I used to calculate by hand can now be done within MIP with little effort.
We have benefited from the ability to manage multiple funding sources in this system. We can allocate each program according to expenses and according to cross program expenses. We are always working to properly allocate to the penny the exact usage/benefit each program gets from one person's time to each ream of paper. MIP allows us to split the costs more accurately than anyone else in the business.
We have been using MIP Fund Accounting for nearly 12 years. It has evolved over the years. I have only been using MIP for 3 years, but cannot find any other software that comes close to the abilities MIP offers at the level it offers it. It fits our agency perfectly.
We have about 40 programs in our agency. We have specific expenses that need to be divided by the building that each program occupies. MIP allows us to set up distribution codes by location, program level, and FTEs. We can save each distribution to be used and updated as the information changes or becomes obsolete.
