Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

Abila MIP is used primarily by our Finance Department. Some program directors do have access to, and use, the software. Abila MIP is our primary accounting software.
  • Reports are easily created and used.
  • Accounts payable system is extensive and friendly.
  • Entries are easy to make and Abila provides lots of references for training and use of the system.
  • Entering budgets - we have only been able to do this manually. If it is possible to import from Excel we need to know.
  • I have not done a ROI calculation for our investment in Abila but I can say that we have been able to bridge gaps with the parts of our organization that do the field work by using Abila reports so they can see the impact their work has on our financials.
Our organization manages over 80 fund accounts from donations, local, state and federal sources. Abila does have all of the functionality we need to manage the funds, organize reports and data so that we can effectively manage our programs.
The revenue and expense reports work very well for our agency, they even include functionality for analysis and comparison. We have a second party payroll program which does not import into Abila and requires an extra journal entry to process payroll.

  • Accounts Payable
  • Fund distribution
  • Accounting
  • We have provided access to some of our more fiscally minded program directors so they can assist with building and managing budgets.
  • Our hope for use in the future is ease of budgets and we are hoping to add the purchase order module to enter invoices.
We know how to use the program well and it has most of the functionality we need.
