Overall Satisfaction with MIP Fund Accounting

We use it in our Business Office - 3 users. We used it for GL and AP and create reports, export them to excel. We also do all budgeting using MIP.
  • Easy to use and has great functionality.
  • I had used other accounting programs which were great, but this one is particularly good for nonprofits.
  • Grant tracking is a great tool.
  • I wish there was a manual sometimes, so that I could look up how to do something.
  • Windows 10 upgrade and MIP seemed to have a few printing issues, at least for our organization. Our tech support spent an hour with MIP customer support trying to resolve the issue.
  • We don't use all the add-ons, but for the basic accounting that we need it for it is an excellent product. We have been using it since 2001. There are other products on the market, but this suits our needs completely.
  • It is easy to learn, with a lot of online support.
  • New staff learn to use the system quite easily.

Over the 20 years, we have been using it, we have always had the support we needed when we needed it. Even with switching to new computers or servers, even though there might have been issues, they were resolved.
I don't know what it would be like in the for-profit arena, but for the non-profit arena, it is an excellent product. I love how you don't actually have to close years and are able to get information that spans over the year-end. And the grant tracking is excellent too. It is just an excellent accounting system.
I don't recall the exact name of the product, but it was basic Blackboard accounting and it was pre-online stuff. And it was hideous. Worst account product I ever used and it was exorbitantly expensive. I had used ACCPAC years before that in the FOR-profit world and that had been great. Moving to a NON-profit organization, they had Blackboard which was terrible. We soon switched to MIP and have been with MIP ever since.
As mentioned, for a non-profit, it is fantastic. I know there are other products out there for non-profits, many of which are exorbitantly expensive. I love how MIP gets better and better. When we were first with MIP some 18 or 19 years ago, it was great but did not do nearly what it does today. I wish I had had the time over the years to learn all the new features, but I did not. Still, I love it.
