Abila Millenium is a hybrid fundraising solution that helps nonprofit organizations and agencies to manage their fundraising programs and related activities. It can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud.
Abila Millenium helps organizations to maintain information about each donor, constituent, corporation or foundation and their relationships to both the organization and each other via engaging visual relationship trees. The solution also provides special event planning and tracking, membership tracking structures, multiple ready-to-use reports and optional built-in payment processing.
Constituent profiles can be created that include biographical and contact data, history and prospect information such as planned giving, media and financial data and custom fields. The giving history includes graphical trends and giving tree displays.
Organizations can also use Abila Millenium to track memberships, which automatically creates multiple classifications, which can be both dues and non-dues paying. The data can be sorted, filtered published using built-in report templates that include integration with Crystal Reports.
Support is available via phone and email.

The software has good standard features and it is not very difficult to use. Just a bit of training required.
The software is not complex enough and the customer service experience could improve more so they meet customers requirements

The interface is nicely divided and navigable, yet allows users to create their own displays of their preferred data views. Screen customization and reporting are fully open and the SQL tables are easy to learn for those behind the curtain in database maintenance.
Millennium Drive (their new front end designed for major gift fundraisers) was released before it was truly completed, without the ability to customize it for each institution's needs.
Abila is working hard to reach their goal of 0% Java, but they got a late start compared to other products. Reporting will need to be overhauled before the Java goal can be reached.
Know how each piece of each product is dependent on other pieces of the product. For example, if we don't know how Correspondence, Solicitations, and Gifts play together in Millennium, we're cheating ourselves when it comes to reporting. It's one thing to know the bullet list of a product's high and low points, and quite another to understand how you must use pieces A and B together to achieve G.

It's very easy to navigate from the dashboard. We especially like the seat assignment tool for planning large dinners.
I have no complaints at this time. We have had better performance since using the product on a virtual machine.
Be sure to consult all users when evaluating. Good training is essential to get the most out of the software.
