Flexibility & Choice with MIP Fund Accounting ®

MIP Fund Accounting® offers both on-premises and cloud solutions for fund accounting, providing the flexibility to choose what best suits your needs. Opting for hosting with MIP® enables you and your team to access your application and data from anywhere via the Internet. Additionally, this option relieves your staff of IT burdens. Furthermore, your data remains secure, backed up, and monitored, with guaranteed Service-Level Agreements (SLAs) in place. Importantly, hosting eliminates the need to deploy or maintain a server, significantly reducing your total cost of ownership while simultaneously enhancing the accessibility and flexibility of MIP Fund Accounting®. Whether you opt for on-premises or cloud solutions, Community Brands Professional Services and Certified Business Partners are readily available to assist your organization in getting up and running quickly and efficiently.

Cloud-Based Solution

Cloud-based solutions mean that your applications are hosted in a data center, professionally managed for superior server performance, scalability, and security. By outsourcing the management of your software infrastructure to a trusted service provider, you free yourself from the burden of deploying, maintaining, backing up, and upgrading hardware and software. Consequently, you are able to securely access your software and information from your mobile phone, tablet, workstation, or laptop, wherever and whenever you need.

On Premise Solution

The organization purchases the software license for the number of users needed and thus owns the software. This approach clearly minimizes long-term fees associated with a subscription model. Subsequently, you would house the software on your server, which is perfect for organizations that have IT support on-site and do not require additional technical help. Alternatively, you can purchase the software license and still opt to have it housed on Community Brands servers, known as Private Cloud/Perpetual.


Build Your Own System Based On Your Needs

The modular structure of this system allows organizations to acquire only the functional areas they need. As your organization evolves, adding specialized modules can address the requirements that accompany expansion and growth. MIP Fund Accounting® ensures the integrity of existing data whenever additional modules are installed, providing a robust foundation for financial accountability.
