Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Our organization uses MIP for all of our accounting needs. Various accountants and admin staff have access to to MIP through different logins. We also have the ability to use it remotely. We use it for all of our accounts payable, accounts receivable and reporting needs. We also create our annual 1099s through it.


  • Adding entries for accounts payable is very easy to do.
  • Creating distribution lists for accounts payable is easy and helpful.
  • Entering accounts receivable is also very user friendly.


  • The reporting function has room for improvement. It isn't always easy to get the information you want into a single report.
  • When entering a batch of accounts payable and posting it, you can't go back to edit or delete a single entry. You need to delete the entire batch and start over, which is annoying.
  • When entering a a deposit or some sort of accounts receivable and posting it, you can't go back to edit or delete a single entry. You need to delete the entire batch and start over, which is annoying.
  • Our organization has been on MIP since I started working here. We are able to get our business objectives done with it.
  • Though we are able to get our business objectives done with MIP, I feel like it is sometimes a struggle and we have to compromise on what we want.
  • I believe we could get a lot more use out of a different accounting platform.
Our organization does get funding from multiple sources and MIP does help us keep that straight. We are able to add funds and expense against those specific funds and create accurate reports about it all. We can keep track of different grants, contracts, individual donations, program revenue, and things like that.
Our company chose Abile MIP because a former employee (that was held in high esteem) recommended it. Since then, we have felt stuck with it due to the cost of switching over to another platform. I personally feel, as do many of my colleagues, that another platform would be better and more effective for our organization.
Honestly, anything that is good about MIP Accounting is also good about various other accounting platforms out there. Its strengths are typically strong with any software you purchase. However, its flaws are pretty obvious once you start using it. Other accounting programs are a better use of your money plus are easier to use.

MIP Fund Accounting Feature Ratings


  • Justin Morrow | TrustRadius Reviewer
    I appreciate your candid feedback about Abila MIP Fund Accounting. It's good to hear that your organization has found many areas of MIP easy to use and helpful to support your nonprofit accounting needs. You mentioned you have the ability to use MIP remotely which could be through MIP Advance. We are currently working on enhancing our MIP Advance reporting to make it simple to build and easily run reports quickly. This will include a lot of usability improvements to the report builder. On your comments related to batch entry for AP and AR, it is possible to reverse the batch then delete all but the one you want to reverse and then post that. However, editing and deleting a posted batch is not permitted in order to maintain the integrity of the audit trail. I'd appreciate any additional feedback you have about MIP and your organization's experience. Feel free to reach out to me directly at Justin.Morrow@abila.com anytime. KInd Regards, Justin Morrow Product Marketing Manager, Abila
