MIP by Community Brands launches several cloud-based product enhancements and separately takes home a TrustRadius Top Rated Award for 2019 Accounting & Budgeting Software

March 29, 2019—ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.— Community Brands, the leading provider of cloud-based software and payment solutions for associations, nonprofits, schools and faith-based organizations, today announced the launch of a significant set of new cloud capabilities for the industry-leading MIP Fund Accounting solution. This month, the solution also won a “Top Rated Accounting & Budgeting Software for 2019” award by TrustRadius.

Better using data and analytics is a focus for growing nonprofit organizations, and the new capabilities of MIP Cloud help nonprofit accounting professionals use insights to make more informed decisions. Included in the product release are enhanced, data-rich dashboards; a new and intuitive user interface; and extended transaction and maintenance functionality to provide a modern, user-centric experience. With MIP Cloud, nonprofits can track donations, account for complex funding requirements, and adhere to compliance and audit reporting standards.

“Cloud and mobile capabilities help nonprofit and public sector professionals make better financial decisions with anytime access to data; execute financial management with greater precision; and better track, report, and manage finances across the entire organization ,” shared Erin Shy, EVP Nonprofit Solutions & Event Technology. “Organizations value the ease of managing service-based software, and adoption of the cloud capabilities of MIP Fund Accounting have continued to grow over the last several years. Today’s product unveil adds many new features to MIP Cloud and helps a nonprofit stay ahead of a future filled with data, financial transparency, and artificial intelligence.”

The MIP Cloud capabilities are immediately available and offer the ability to collaborate across different teams through a single and common view of an organization’s finances. As a cloud-based solution, it also offers the convenience of ongoing updates that are automatically delivered to users, reducing the workload on nonprofit IT teams and ensures business users are always using the latest version and features. MIP has over 35 years of nonprofit accounting expertise and supports more than 40,000 users.

“Moving to the cloud subscription was really integral to us,” shared MIP customer Alison Rumler-Gomez, Executive Director for Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois. “If we had a catastrophic event to our building, we would still have access to everything we need by way of the cloud.”

Earlier this month, MIP also earned a spot on the list of “Top Rated Accounting & Budgeting Software for 2019” award winners by TrustRadius. Established in 2013, TrustRadius has become the most trusted site for B2B software reviews. Each month, about 400,000 B2B technology buyers use over 168,000 verified reviews and ratings on to make informed purchasing decisions.

“Similar to software in most sectors, fundraising and accounting software is heavily influenced by new technologies,” stated Melea Guilbault, SVP of Partnerships & Nonprofit Solutions. “It’s an exciting time for nonprofits. The new cloud capabilities are powerful, and we are thrilled to receive an award from TrustRadius that speaks to the confidence customers have in the solution.”
Since they launched in 2016, the TrustRadius Top Rated Awards have become the industry standard for unbiased recognition of the best B2B technology products. Based entirely on customer feedback, they have never been influenced by analyst opinion or status as a TrustRadius customer.

The award-winning capabilities of the MIP platform, together with the company’s market-leading mobile event fundraising solution, GiveSmart, will be shown in Community Brands booth #635 at AFP ICON 2019, March 31st through April 2nd in San Antonio, Texas. As a part of the product announcement, the on-premises version of MIP also received several customer-driven enhancements, which will likewise be featured during the event.
