Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting

We use MIP Fund Accounting for Accounting and Payroll. We have used this system since the 1990s. MIP Fund Accounting works great for us for non-profit accounting. We have approximately 10 - 15 grants and can use the system to track expenditures, employee time, and costs allocated to the appropriate grants. MIP Fund Accounting handles budgets operating on different grant periods and the product is easy to use with some initial training.
  • Cost allocate among multiple grants
  • Time and Attendance reporting for multiple grants
  • Accounts Payable
  • Payroll
  • Credit Card Bills and reconciliation
  • Ability to run reports on distribution codes, which get changed frequently
  • HR Manager system - not a lot of training available to learn the system
  • Time saved with automated accounting processes
  • Time saved with using HR Manager
If you have the system set up correctly, the reports work really well. Once you have a report set up for one grant, you can use this report for other grants by copying it and renaming it, and changing the fields for the new grant.
MIP Fund Accounting works well for our accounting department.

Support from Community Brands

The Knowledge Base is helpful and the Community Brands MIP Fund Accounting Discussion group is a great place to learn from others who are using the system. I've learned more from discussion group and I try to participate and help others with questions they have.
Every time we call, we get great support.
We use MIP on-premise. I don't see us transitioning to the cloud. The ability to restore the back-up at any time for the on-premise comes in really handy. Most of the time, the back-up is restored when payroll is being processed. Staff click a wrong button or put in a wrong date and instead of reversing what was done, we restore the back-up.
