My overall experience with FORGE has been mostly positive as it is a powerful tool in managing trade that offers excellent reporting capabilities as well as powerful search functions that save time.

RB

Forge has been a great help to our organization. It has helps us get our arms around a very difficult to manage piece of the Foodservice business.

SM

Pros

MIP has one of the best non-profit accounting solutions out there, with its robust reporting, multiple segmentation of accounts, and ease of reviewing history in the database.

DM

Dan M.

I enjoyed the ability to get an entire University on board and working in the same direction. Additionally, the ability to coordinate accounts is very helpful.

Anonymous Reviewer

The system itself has been around for a good while. For that reason, they have built a strong product if you are in the non-profit sector looking for some flexibility.

MR

Miguel R.

Cons

Some fields are a bit confusing and more time consuming than others.

TN

Timothy N.

The amount of time for processing. The inability to delete/remove old programs.

GH

Grant H.

Putting in a new program- some features are difficult.

PH

PAMELA H.

Cons

Payroll module is difficult to obtain reports without manipulation and combinations.

BC

Becky C.

Don't purchase any Abila product without factoring in the cost of training. Our organization did a self install & configuration and to be frank made a mess of things.

JL

Jim L.

No switch to do Cash Accounting Basis-built to use Accrual Basis only. No cash forecast model built in s/w.
