Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

MIP is being used by the accounting staff at multiple client locations. Payments and checks are tracked. Mortgages are processed. As the main client deals heavily in mortgage processing...Sage is critical to their daily work. It ensures that a non-profit is accountable for all revenue flow and allows several accountants with varying work methods to meet in the middle.
  • Prompts you to back up your data when logging out.
  • When using SQL Express...it is easy to get a new copy of MIP running if need be. Backups are a cinch.
  • Shows audit information and has easy to use custom templates for odd check formats and the like.
  • It could use more wizards so that an end user might make better use of optional features.
  • It has come a long way performance wise. This can always be worked on of course.
  • Publishing a clear "what has changed from the last version" document to hand to end users post-upgrade would be handy.
  • It can be pricey for small non-profits but certainly pays off in the long run when compared to competitor products.
The main client who uses MIP processes loads of payments from varying customers, tracks mortgages, and handles revenue flow to vendors with ease. Our other MIP client is a local government utility office and they work with both public and private sources in a highly fluctuating market with almost no issues.
QuickBooks and Peachtree just didn't have the multi-user environment depth that MIP has. As such, our clients transitioned over the years. From the Sage days onwards we have used MIP to great effect. Sure there have been bumps in the road but it is an intuitive product. With an up to date support contract and regular backups, there's rarely an issue that causes much downtime. It runs well on SQL Express but you can run it on SQL with more resources if your environment requires it.

MIP will work with both large and small environments as long as you have a hierarchy of who the admins/users are. I deal with a large range of personalities and they always seem to agree on MIP's layouts and output. It certainly does what it says on the package.

I would not run the database on a server with a large task load however. It runs best on its own. A pro level OS workstation virtual works great.
