"MIP is so cost effective and easy to use that when the organization doubled in size in terms of personnel and budget it was no question that we would be keeping MIP as our accounting system. Because we were so confident in the product, we were able to focus more on our programs and other work and not have to worry about MIP's ability to grow as we do."
