Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

MIP Fund Accounting (Online) is used at ELAW primarily to track incoming grants from individuals and foundations and subgrants we make to international NGOs.
  • Provides detailed reports of which organizations we have made subgrants to. When we first purchased MIP it was one of the few packages on the market that could handle subgrants to international NGOs.
  • Support for Mac OS is less than ideal, requiring us to run a Terminal Server Client and connect to a Windows Server hosted by Abila. This process sometimes fails, locking up our single user license and it can be difficult to reach a support person in a timely fashion to unlock our license to allow our bookkeeper to log in again.
  • The user interface is somewhat clunky, out-dated and non-intuitive.
  • MIP Fund Accounting has freed up administrator time managing a local server that must be patched on a regular basis and monitored for attempts.
The hosted version of MIP Fund Accounting has freed us from managing the server in-house, however the Terminal Server access required for use with Mac OS computers feels like an afterthought.
