Raiser's Edge NXT has an advantage because it is configured to be used by fundraisers out of the box, with no developer required. Integrated solutions reduce the need to export/import data.

RE NXT is Raiser's Edge on steroids and with more web base options Little Green Light offers a lot of similar options for a smaller shop with a smaller budget Donor Perfect - used too long ago to fairly compare One Cause - is more helpful for our auction/gala events than events module in RE but not as many tools Network for Good - we have been using until we are up and running with the online giving tools of RE NXT.

The advancement module of Ellucian Banner seems to have been created as an afterthought to the other modules (registration, finance, etc.), and therefore, it was weak in its ability to handle the needs of a robust fundraising operation. This is true of many similar systems, which is why [Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT] stands out, as it was designed for fundraising, and the integration to other systems works fine.

I've used Salesforce in the past however Raiser's NXT to me is more updated, visually appealing and user-friendly. Also, Blackbaud just has a large array of tools we use on a daily basis so we have a contract and package with them. We currently have a Blackbaud hosted website, donation page, target analytics to analyze and track donor giving capacity.

The first two are solutions offered by Blackbaud as well and integrate sort of. There is a lot of work there that could help get these products to talk to each other much better. Veracross is a competitor that offers a large amount of alternatives, but their package is an all in one solution, which means you need to have all of your company convert to their products

Raiser's Edge NXT is a much better product than the standard RE that we had in the past. The function of RE7 was very bulky, cumbersome to operate, didn't have an ease of use, and overall was something I didn't look forward to using. Raiser's Edge NXT looks better, works, better and overall is easier to use.

We previously used Exceed Beyond and found it to be too basic for our needs. It lacked the analysis tools, in particular, and did not offer integrated solutions that allow us to keep everything in one system, ie. all our fundraising and accounting functions. We explored numerous alternatives, including Salesforce, and found the purpose-built, ready-to-use, one-stop-shop approach at Blackbaud (Raiser's Edge NXT provider) was by far our best option when considering cost and time to transition systems.

We began with a customized Microsoft Access database and grew out of it pretty quickly as we discovered there were more ways we wanted to use our donor information. As we grew, we recognized the need to have a more robust database to follow up, monitor, and organized our gifts.

This is the only database I have used that is web-based connected to a classic database version. You must have Raisers Edge classic to have RENXT so it is an investment and commitment to your fundraising efforts. The interface is very helpful for prospect/portfolio management and has really streamlined our process.

It is nice that all our data lives in one software. We also have a child sponsorship program and we were able to include that data in the NXT as well. It also goes along with other Blackbaud products like the FE NXT and our website. All the other software we had to do double data entry or have multiple open to find the data needed.

Companies that built their products with a user-end web-view experience in mind, as opposed to re-imagining the database in the cloud, seem to have a slight advantage with more intuitive interaction for the user. Raiser's Edge, though, has been the gold standard in fundraising constituent management software for decades. NXT has a lot of potential and some seriously powerful features you won't find anywhere else. I love that you get the database view and the web-view experience, so you can really know your data is accurate and doing its job. Your ability to customize your experience is greater, and no one else does this better.

I recently started a new position that uses Raiser's Edge 7, as opposed to my previous position that had NXT. I miss a lot of the functionality of NXT, particularly the Analytics. Of the other Blackbaud products I've used (Luminate, NetCommunity), I think NXT is the most user-friendly, and has the easiest integration with RE7 (particularly as regards Online Express, the email tool that comes with NXT, which is much easier to use than Lumiante and NetCommunity, despite not having as much functionality).

The only other similar product I have used is Education Edge in a non-profit secondary school setting. We also used Financial Edge and Raiser's Edge there where all systems were operating simultaneously. It was a great way to approach the different arenas of the organization while utilizing the same system platforms. We are currently implementing AcademicWorks and I will soon be able to comment on its functionality and usage.
