User Reviews of MIP Fund Accounting

Submitted on March 14th, 2023 by Anonymous

After reviewing several options, we found MIP Fund Accounting offered the best “bang for our buck”. They not only offered the accounting and budgeting but also had added functionality such as purchasing/requistion and payroll that were terrific. The cost benefit analysis we did, had them as the stand out choice.

It’s extremely antiquated. If you need this for multiple entities and funds, forget it. No clarity. There’s not ability to consolidate and run elimination entries. Reporting is very difficult. The ability to drill down on a balance from your financial statements is almost nonexistent. Weak audit logs. We’re leaving MIP for good.

The Good…


The Bad…

No multi-entity reporting capabilities. No auto eliminations.

The program is clunky, confusing and not user friendly whatsoever.

Submitted on February 22nd, 2018 by Anonymous

After using this program for quite some time, the reporting capabilities are on the weak side as they are unable to calculate cost of customer acquisition and the deployment is outdated as our IT staff has a very difficult time integrating it with other industry specific solutions that we use.

It’s my favorite fund accounting software package.

The Good…

A person can run reports by any segment or combination of segments, which is VERY helpful!

The Bad…

Changing PO amounts once the PO is printed.

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.

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.

Submitted on December 9th, 2013 by Mary

Our vendor was very professional and accommodating to our search. They were very helpful at demonstrating the product functionality with our specific examples and came across from knowledge and confident in their solution for us.

The Good…

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

The Bad…
