Overall Satisfaction with Abila MIP Fund Accounting

MIP Fund Accounting is being used by Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona for the accounting and finance functions. It is used by many other Girl Scout Councils across the United States as well as by the national organization Girl Scouts of the United States.
  • Has a multi level chart of accounts structure that enables you to track transactional data to a source and specific activity level beyond the fund and departmental levels.
  • Has an easily modifiable reporting function that enables you to easily drill down to the detail level of data as well as summary level of data.
  • Is user friendly and fairly easy for staff level personnel to learn to use
  • Development of integration with other systems that many of the councils are using, like the salesforce application used for membership transactional activity, and also the retail point of sales systems.
  • Transition was prior to my time on board. It is efficient and is working well for us.
Yes we have achieved this benefit - We track dollars as follows:
By fund then by GL code, then by department, then by activity, then by who sourced from, then by location. We can then report out at any one of these levels or any combination of these levels.
[MIP Fund Accounting is] much more geared to specific accounting needs of not for profits, used across the U.S. by Girl Scout councils.
If you have multiple entities you essentially need to set them up as multiple funds, you can however break out data to get back out the entity level data that you need. It is a solid fund accounting system.
