Mobile Accounting – Psst, we have an app for that!
I traveled to Austin last week to attend the Abila Spring Partners’ Conference, which offered an abundance of content about MIP Fund Accounting and fundraising software, as well as an opportunity to renew relationships.
One great takeaway of interest to accountants is that MIP Fund Accounting now has full functionality on a mobile device (iPad, smart phone, etc.). The capability is not much different than accessing MIP remotely through a computer using Remote Desktop. The MS RDP technology has been adapted to make the application a true mobile app. You launch it by tapping an icon on your phone or tablet and all the screen-sizing, navigation and other mobile features behave the same as any other application on your devise. This app is immediately available to users who have MIP hosted by Abila or NFP Partners’ private cloud hosting services described in another article. Organizations hosting MIP on-premises will require some IT assistance with implementation.
Many of our subscribers use QuickBooks for their accounting. Is there a similar capability? There is with QuickBooks Online.
