Obviously, Benjamin Franklin was not thinking about the ramifications for modern day technology when he first coined the phrase “time is money”. But his words are just as true some 270 years later, as they were when he first wrote them in 1748.
There are several instances I can think of, where I chose the “do it yourself” approach to a project rather than paying to have it done. But unfortunately, what should have been a two-hour project ended up taking all weekend. And as a result, three other projects that were planned were left untouched.
So what does all this have to do with MIP Fund Accounting? Time is money, so look at ways to streamline your processes.
Save time & reduce data entry errors.
One key area to consider is the extra effort that is required by keying information that can be imported. And while it may seem more cost-effective to manually enter third-party payroll transactions every two weeks than invest in an Abila MIP import routine – take into consideration the additional effort that is required correcting the inevitable data entry errors.
Free up time for additional projects.
Perhaps even more importantly – what is the cost of not being able to complete the three other projects that would have provided mission-critical information to your leadership team?
DWD Technology Group can help you determine whether MIP’s Data Import/Export module can save you time, and therefore, money. And since 96% of Abila’s customers already own the module, why not put it to even better use?
