We appreciate having analytics integrated into our NXT contract, so we get an annual refresh on wealth ratings. Our organization doesn't rely heavily on it, but it is an additional tool for us.

We are able to continuously review our donor database and adjust portfolios as needed. There are also a number of reports to "catch" donors who are lapsing or are in danger of falling out of sight. Through action tracking, fundraisers are able to enter daily activity. This is useful for all …

Honestly, the mapping tool is a favorite. If I know I am going to visit a donor I can easily see who else is in the area for me to stop by. It can also help identify prospects. If I have a major donor in one neighborhood then what other constituents are in that area? And the insights are helpful …

Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT is useful for identifying donor prospects and their giving capabilities. Being able to manually make edits when information changes, such as an employer or preferred contact information, is also a useful feature.

I don’t think I have used any analytics features and therefore don’t feel confident that I can give a proper answer. I can say that without this tool I would be flying blindly when planning events. This serves as the foundation for all events I plan from strategy to execution.

One of my coworkers uses ResearchPoint and we've all gone through training and the yearly meetings. It all sounds good but I'm not sure how much we actually use it or how much new information it really gives us that is accurate. Even with all the trainings I am still overwhelmed by it and not that …

Ultimately, the data and database itself is only as clean as the individuals operating it internally at the institution, which drives successful fundraising, However, Blackbaud’s capabilities do provide further insight into our constituents and assist in us more easily keeping data clean …

I find that this insights are not really relevant to my type of work (for instance it tells me donors "without a meeting" but they are not a type of donor that needs a meeting as a competitive research foundation).

During our capital campaign we were able to develop invaluable insight into our donors via analytics and Research Point. We were able to see where our donors were already engaged, what motivated their giving elsewhere and to honor them by making the most appropriate ask. The donor experience was …

NXT helps to categorize donors into giving groups (lapsing, renewed, etc.) that is especially helpful when making decisions around our annual giving calendar and activities.

The Reporting function is a great idea, but too rigid and not customizable enough. We still have to rely on reports pulled from database view (and are purchasing Fundraiser Performance Management.) If Reporting was a little more robust, we could probably avoid that and the fundraisers wouldn't…

We are a small shop (2 people ), so we likely aren't using Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT to its full capacity. It certainly is helpful to retrieve info on our donors and be able to track their giving over the years and likewise identify those who have lapsed.

We have utilized the Address Finder and found that to be very helpful in keeping our records up-to-date before we get to the point of sending a bulk mailing. As previously mentioned, we primarily solicit through specific appeals and events, so analytics and data intelligence is under-utilized in …

I have been able to use the gift ratings from ResearchPoint to help me identify prospects for cultivation. In one example, a volunteer for our organization turned out to have a very high net worth. We decided to include all volunteers in an appeal, and she sent a substantial gift without any …

It is very easy to use analytics. I love how when you are looking at a specific constituent, you can see if they have higher giving potential or if they are about to lapse. I also enjoy looking at the benchmarking tab, where we can see how we compare to other organizations our size. The retention …

A Review of RE NXT

Cameron Dunkin | TrustRadius Reviewer

It's fine. It's not the fastest, but not the slowest either. The real limitations come in how difficult it is to pull reports, or how to segment parts of information. This isn't an issue of not knowing how to do something - we've followed up with staff and there are actual limitations that make work harder.

I think RE NXT provides a wealth of knowledge that was previously unavailable or much harder to access. I also think the Blackbaud support team has been great helping me navigate any issues or questions I encountered when my organization switched over to NXT.

I think Raiser's Edge NXT performs very well and is quite functional. I have experienced some lag in loading constituent search results, but overall it loads pages much faster than the Raiser's Edge database view. Reports complete in a reasonable time, but I wish they offered more in-depth filters that are easily pulled in the database version.

It is very easy to use and cuts down on so many steps that were needed in the classic view. The information can be accessed anywhere and the panels can be arranged so each person sees what is most important to them first. It is a great product!

RE NXT for everyone!

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

NXT itself is a pretty simple interface, and is great for front-line fundraisers to be able to look up info and run some simple "reports"/analysis. It's very quick and intuitive, but the back-end attached to it (RE 7.96) may have connectivity issues from time to time. NXT itself, though, is simple enough that issues are rare.

The user interface is amazing. All of our major gift officers have a short cut on there mobile phone and use it. RENXT being easy to access, view and, update has made the user adoption rate much better then the old database view. Specifically for fundraisers. Reports also load quickly. I do not know about its performance with other software expecept for outlook (you could add an action/reminder with in RENXT and have it also added to your calendar. That's works great.
