Getting the MOST Out of Abila MIP
for Tribes and Tribal Organizations


Date: July 24 - 26, 2017
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Tuition:   $840


Abila MIP Fund Accounting is the most used accounting software among tribes. Why? Because it can make planning and managing budgets, maximizing grants, and producing accurate audit-ready reports a breeze — if you know how to use it. Like any accounting system, what you get out of it depends on what you put in. This valuable class, taught by Raymond E. Bantum,* CPA, CITP- Abila MIP Certified Instructor and Authorized Business Partner, will assist you in assessing your tribal organization’s current use of the Abila MIP accounting system and expose you to new ways to get the most out of it.

We’ll walk you through how to understand MIP’s “segments” and set them up to optimize your results. And we’ll show you how to get more from the core modules, including the general ledger module, accounts payable module, budget module, and bank reconciliation module. Plus you’ll learn how to optimize your use of non-core modules relating to fixed assets; accounts receivable and billing; purchase orders; encumbrances; electronic requisitions, allocations, forms designer, payroll, and human resources.

Want to know how MIP can help you address new audit requirements in the Super Circular? Want to learn about enhancements to versions 14 and 15 of Abila MIP? Need a better understanding of indirect cost and cost allocation issues? This is the class for you.

Need help accounting for the administration and management of grants and contracts? Want to be audit-ready? Looking for better options for integrating payroll? You’re in the right place. Not only that, but we’ll provide you with MIP Vertical Market Modules developed for tribes, including modules for Federally Qualified Community Health Centers, Early Head Start/Head Start - Edu Care Centers, HUD Housing Authorities, GASB 34, Charter Schools, and Tribal Colleges/Universities. Plus you’ll learn how to create custom developed board reports and cash flow reports.

Whether you’re new to Abila MIP or just looking for ways to use it more effectively, this class will help you get more out of Abila MIP than you may have realized was possible. Perfect for CFO’s, CEO’s, Accounting Managers, Board Members and any current MIP Accounting Systems users in your tribal organization. Register today!
