Common myths debunked

We don’t need a fund accounting solution customized to schools?

As institutions that receive revenue from multiple sources — including tuition, endowments, donations, fundraising, community donations, and grants — schools must have an organized space for tracking funding and net tuition. MIP compiles and presents those funding sources in a user-friendly fashion. When managing school payroll, MIP can help you better allocate funds to your hardworking administrators and teachers.

We can document everything in Excel, why would we need a software program?

Our spreadsheet-less service makes your school ready for the future. From tracking, to forecasting, to reporting, our all-in-one solution makes your accounting process easier and streamlined, and with our robust module set, we’re ready to grow as you grow 

Fund accounting solutions don’t manage grants

MIP Fund Accounting features a robust grant management integration. With how important it is to ensure those grants are going to the appropriate places, you need a fund accounting solution that does that at the click of a button. Our robust grant reporting software will put your leadership at ease, as you ensure your school is properly allocating every grant.

The knowledge base has so many helpful articles (I even found one about why I couldn't access a report feature and it was due to it being on my secondary monitor). A great deal of information is available to look for answers for yourself. They do have a live support staff too that are always friendly and knowledgeable.
