Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting

I am the only person in my organization who uses MIP, as the only accountant on the team. I use MIP for accounts payable, accounting reports and monthly bank reconciliation. Our donations and payroll are imported into MIP from other software, which saves time and maintains accuracy.

MIP allows me to customize reports to share with my team. It allows me to quickly adjust a report to the detail level I may need depending on who I share the information with. The PDF report downloads are professional when sending out data and the Excel report allows me to search through large data.
  • MIP offers many features that can automate work. One of my favorite ways to automate is assigning a GL code to a specific vendor. It makes cutting checks faster and more accurate.
  • I appreciate the warnings that can be set up. It is helpful especially at year end to be warned if I am entering for the previous fiscal year and forbidden to adjust earlier in the year.
  • I like that MIP shows each change to the GL. Yes, the data looks clunky but it provides the full story to changed JV's both for the auditors and for myself.
  • MIP Cloud took away the ability to have multiple things open simultaneously. Now if I need to add a vendor in the middle of a check run, I need to completely exit the batch. The desktop version offered ways to have both open simultaneously.
  • The Cloud version is picky about checking duplicate document numbers during a bank reconciliation. If I select avoided check and there are two document 15's, it will only save one document. I have to go to the desktop version to lock it.
  • The Cloud version does not allow me to do my Recurring Entries. They automatically appear with a warning that they are due when I enter the desktop version.
  • The transition to MIP Cloud allows for flexibility when working. I can access it anytime and from any location. Previously, I had it only on my work desktop.
  • It provides one login and an easy way to switch between organizations. It also saves us time and money by not having two different accounting software for the two companies.

I have not reached out to MIP for technical support; however, their website offers great help resources so I can solve an issue on my own.

Another team member reached out to MIP for support and was helped quickly.

The transition process took longer than expected due to a lag in communication.
The desktop MIP was very user friendly. There were two or three ways to get somewhere. The side and top panels had different ways of getting you to the same place. This allowed for different navigational and thinking patterns for different people.

The Cloud version is still great. It eliminated one of the navigational ways and removed the option to have multiple screens and reports open side by side simultaneously.
MIP is great when an organization has multiple departments. I am able to pinpoint exactly what department or event an expense was for because of the multiple options and layers to narrow down.

Reports customizations are great in order to produce an understandable summary of the data for non-accounting professionals. This would be suitable for organizations who have staff with limited accounting knowledge outside the accounting team.
