Reviews of Abila MIP Fund Accounting

An anonymous Abila MIP Fund Accounting user from ERBM Parks & Recreation District says...

Fund Accounting Software including; Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Payroll/HR, Budgeting, and Inventory Modules

The good: User friendly system; able to accomodate all levels of users from basic accounting clerks to payroll specialists.

The bad: Printed Tech Support Guides difficult to understand; instructions not clear and icons are not intuitive. Tech support and training online is excellent.

Linda says...

This software has all of the features we were looking for - payroll, fixed assets, general ledger etc. It has the ability to automatically post benefit expenses as it posts payroll. Will definitely cut down on tracking through individual spreadsheets. Streamlined over our current software

The good: We are still implementing the software, working with a CPA firm. We have found that going through a CPA firm is much easier as they understand your questions from an accountants perspective. The software can be customized in many ways to make it tailored to our needs.

The bad: We haven’t worked in it enough to know its quirks.

Mary from Youth Service Bureau says...

The good: It appears very user friendly and during our due diligence we discovered many satisfied users.
