OUR THOUGHTS ON:

Sage Nonprofit Solutions Gets a New Name

Not-for-Profit|Technology

By Tina Frysinger

Sage Nonprofit Solutions has changed its name to Abila. The group was sold in March to Accel-KKR, a private equity firm focusing on middle-market enterprise applications. Abila has rebranded its logo, website and corporate identity. The products under its control, including the lead product, Fund Accounting 100 (formally MIP), will lose the Sage name. Keep your eyes open for more product branding changes moving forward.

Previously the Vice President and General Manager of Sage Nonprofit Solutions, Krista Endsley remains at the head of the organization. Ms. Endsley claimed that the word “abila” originates from the Latin term “skilled expert.” She added, “…for us the name is also about competency, ability and inspiring possibility.”1

Compared to the Sage Group, Abila will be much smaller in size. This will allow for growth and flexibility within its organization. Plans include increasing its staff by 20% up to 150 employees. Abila has created its own finance, IT and HR departments and hired a new VP of marketing. These changes are aimed at creating an efficient business model and allowing Abila to meet the growing needs of its customers
