Abila MIP Fund Accounting™ Success Story
The Community Action Agency of Butte County, Inc. (CAABCI) operates four major programs. Its $7.5 million budget is funded by nearly 30 different sources, including grants from federal, state, and local government entities, as well as foundations, corporations, contracts, fees for services, and donations.
Each department operates various projects and programs funded by multiple and widely varying sources, making the accounting piece of the business extremely complex. It’s an environment in which small business accounting software, such as QuickBooks, simply isn’t adequate. The agency needed a true fund accounting™ system to effectively manage its diverse programs and funding sources.
Now, CAABCI uses Abila MIP Fund Accounting™ software to financially manage its programs and finances. CFO Dana Campbell says the biggest benefit the agency gleans from MIP™ is its flexibility to adapt to exactly what’s needed in any given environment, whether it’s adding a new program or writing new code in response to ever-changing funding source demands.
“A main advantage of MIP is we’re able to adapt to each funding stream’s unique conditions. This is vital, because funding sources typically have diverse requirements, and even interpret regulations differently, sometimes within the same federal department.”
