Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting

We use MIP Fund Accounting for Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll, Cash Receipts, Cash Disbursements, Journal Entries, and Financial Reporting. Some of the problems I have is being able to create invoices. I currently create them in Word and then manually enter them into MIP. I also have numerous logs I have to keep manually to track check numbers, voucher numbers, journal entry numbers, etc. It would be great if/when everything moves to the Cloud (I think). I currently do not use the Cloud because I cannot perform all functions there and I don't want to switch back and forth between classic and cloud. The only other problem I have is that all of the training moves so fast and I am still learning the system. I often get lost and can't catch up. Very frustrating. Also, we have to pay for classes for training and I feel it should have been included in the price of the program. Not for a limited time. When I look at the manuals I have downloaded and printed there are often steps missing. I think they are not written for "first-time" users. There were numerous problems in our initial training.

Pros

  • Processes are clear and concise
  • Ease of use once you understand the flow

Cons

  • Creating reports
  • Being able to change what you view on display report functions
  • Remembering check or voucher number in A/P and Payroll
  • Training
  • It does seem to have saved me some time
  • It has reduced the IT costs
I feel there are times when I am not exactly sure what criteria to enter to get the result I am trying to capture. More free training would be great.
I definitely do not want to go through another conversion. Mine was a nightmare.
They did not have NXT when we began with Blackbaud. While it also had its problems, it had some things that I liked better and some not so much. I think that is true with all integrated systems.
