We use MIP Fund Accounting and HR component for county government. .... MIP replaced an outdated system that leaned heavily on manual work, spreadsheets, and piles of paperwork. MIP automates the manual work, organizes our information, and turned most of our paperwork to digital. It also has the latest tax and HR information helping us to be accurate and ease the burden on our employees.

MIP Fund Accounting (formerly Abila MIP) is well suited to handle both our governmental entity issues as well as our consultant work. I love the support chat option. ... The option to type back and forth is very nice. I have also received excellent service when I've needed to call for support.

MIP provides detailed customization to fit your organization rather than force you to use an out-of-the-box configuration that may not suit your needs. [It] is easy to set up and uses industry-standard SQL Server back end so backups and restores are easy.

We had limited resources in our city. Towns have limited budgets, so we had to start with the intention of finding a solution that would grow with us for the long term.
