Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

MIP Fund Accounting is used by our accounting department. The main problem is the compatibility with other softwares. It is user friendly to an extent. We would like for it to automatically upload information from other softwares without having to enter and spend time working on an enormous query.
  • Purchase Orders - Easy to create and easy to bypass certain codes that do not need to be used.
  • Budgeting - Easy to enter the budget. However, to manipulate reports to fit our criteria has taken some time to figure out. Overall, the budget reports are exactly what we need.
  • Invoices - invoices are detailed and easy to enter and generate to aged payables quickly.
  • Bank Reconciliation is important and MIP's set up is easy to understand.
  • Reporting - It is difficult to pull information out of MIP without spending hours setting up formulas, titles, and content for reports.
  • Attachments - this process is very unclear in the tables and contents. It is difficult to understand and figure out where the attachment is going and how it is useful in MIP because it does not pull the information into MIP itself. It's basically just in there to say it's on file.
  • Organization setup is hard to maneuver.
Yes, we have achieved this benefit. However, we do not use MIP to track endowments and investments. We only enter the date from a spreadsheet.
MIP is strong in purchase orders and invoicing. These functions are easy to use and easy to extract information. Being able to reverse documents/sessions is important when dealing with over 1000 vendors.

It is hard for me to discuss less appropriate scenarios because there are functions of MIP we do not use. For example, the purchase requisition module is not used because we have too many employees within Bethel who have to be approved signers. It wold be more chaotic for us to use it right now.
