Community Brands has cancelled its program with resellers of its MIP nonprofit accounting effective December. The notice to surprised VARs this week, who were left puzzled.

The company said it still wants partners “and it is our intention to have a new program going into 2022.”  The letter was written by Bethany Little, managing director, education and nonprofit brands who also said the company is “looking at opportunities to heavily incent behaviors that will promote our new Cloud offering particularly given our upcoming Q1 release of both our payroll and HR modules.” Community Brands, which acquired MIP with the purchase of the former Abila in April 2017, concentrates on sales of applications to association and fund-raising.  Although MIP is part of its nonprofit segment, the company has had no separate press announcements about the line in the last two years, although it did say MIP powered its end-to-end association software suite that was introduced in April 2018. Little’s letter called the decision “a part of a larger transformation as we accelerate our MIP Cloud roadmap and a requirement to have a close relationship with our customers going forward.” The statement that Community Brands needs to cancel the program to have a closer relationship with customers seems a bit odd and the company did not respond to a request for comment.
