MIP Implementation & Setup
Organizations can spend several months researching and selecting a new accounting software system which will enhance their financial reporting capabilities. An area that should receive just as much attention is the planning and implementation of the new system.
DWD has been implementing MIP Fund Accounting™ software since 1995 and can guide you through the implementation process from conception to completion.
We understand nonprofit business practices and how to implement software to meet those unique needs. Whether or not you’ve purchased your MIP software through DWD, our nonprofit consultants will provide you with a sound implementation plan.
Our MIP System Implementation & Setup Services Include:
Consulting with your team as you plan for the system implementation – Our proven methodology will allow your implementation to be completed on time and on budget.
Implementing and customizing your software to meet your needs – Part of this includes advising your staff regarding setup procedures, as well as mapping and converting data from your existing system into your new software.
Another part is to create custom applications to help create workable solutions that fill your unique requirements. Examples include:
Your department managers and board members may find it very confusing and/or intimidating to be confronted by pages of numbers that would normally thrill any accountant. So why not provide them with the information in a language they can more easily understand – charts and graphs.
Through a variety of software tools, DWD can provide information in this user-friendly format and make it available to interested parties – whether by direct connection to your server or over an Internet link. Financial information? Of course! Time keeping records? You bet! Key performance indicators? At the click of a button.
While MIP provides a very robust reporting engine as part of the software, there are situations when the available tools will not produce the desired result. If you find yourself in this situation, contact DWD to determine what other options are available. We can use third-party tools such as Crystal Reports, Excel, MIP’s HR/EWS report writer, or a number of other software products.
Providing assistance to your staff throughout the installation process
Including MIP software training that covers setup, transaction entry, reporting, monthly closing and periodic backup procedures.

MIP Software Upgrades
Are You Running the Latest Version of MIP Fund Accounting?
The Advisor Update tool which was introduced in MIP Fund Accounting version 11.0 enables users to keep their software up to date with the latest releases and updates.
Advisor Update recognizes the MIP products you have locally installed and lists the updates available for those products. If you have a current MIP maintenance and support plan, you can download and install the updates available.
DWD can provide assistance with software updates and upgrades which can be helpful if your organization is running several versions behind. Often times you cannot go directly to the most recent release, but instead must install a series of intermediate versions.
MIP System Review
Are You Fully Utilizing Your MIP Fund Accounting Software?
Too many times organizations that have invested in state-of-the-art accounting software packages are not able to fully utilize it. There can be a number of reasons why, but it quite often relates to staff turnover and the minimal amount of training they receive.
DWD has developed an assessment program to help assure that our non-profit clients gain the maximum benefit from their MIP software.
For clients who request this complimentary service, we will conduct a telephone interview that focuses primarily on the Administration, General Ledger, and Accounts Payable portions of the program. We will also touch on budgeting and reporting capabilities within MIP Fund Accounting. At the conclusion of the assessment, we will offer recommendations for possible areas of improvement.
