Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting

We use MIP Fund Accounting to account for our foundation. It is only used in the foundation and not the entire university. The business problem it addresses is managing accounts for our more than 400 endowments. Without this software, they would be impossible to track.
  • Easily spreads investment returns to all endowments
  • Creating and formatting reports is simple
  • Navigating the software is very intuitive
  • Report writing could be easier; it is not user friendly
  • Standard reports should be more accessible (e.g., SOA, SFP, individual endowment reports that are reader friendly downloadable into different formats)
  • The original implementation was very difficult and cumbersome
  • The impact on our organization was that it produced an inefficiency in our accounting processes. Financials were behind by months and the amount of error fixing was significant.
  • After implementation and fixing all the errors, the monthly process goes pretty smooth and the year-end process is relatively easy now.

We really don't get much support from MIP, and when we have reached out, it was difficult to get any resolution. This was a long time ago and perhaps it has gotten better.
Once you get used to the functionalities, it is pretty easy to use.
I liked the financial reporting functionality of Sage Intacct, but MIP Fund Accounting is definitely the better product for tracking many different funds.
Well suited for basic accounting and tracking funds

Not well suited for budget to actual reports or other financial statements that allow for financial analysis
