  • We've had some untimely database down time from server errors over the period of a few weeks.
  • The availability of attached invoices has provided some immediate information for audit questions that we would have struggled to obtain otherwise.
  • We have some slow times when it appears the servers are busy. We have to wait after each click of the mouse and have to be careful not to get ahead of the keystrokes because we don't know where we are in the sequence. This may last for a while and then go away.

Return on Investment

  • We have paid out a lot of money for the initial set up of FE (3rd party)and then more for Blackbaud to come in to help us finish set up. Then more $$ for NXT without a level of training that should have accompanied the initial set up. Many procedures, reports, etc we have had to teach ourselves which has been a struggle.
  • The Commissioners think we have thrown good money after bad.

  • General ledger accounting is a necessity so integration with existing products is convenient. However, Blackbaud could make this product more competitively priced.
  • The ability to utilize Blackbaud Merchant Services to process credit cards has reduced costs and streamlined the process.
  • Chat with support services has proved to be effective.

  • Bank Reconciliation has streamline the ability to have real time banking information available in our system without all of the manual calculations needed previously.
  • Having the ability to look up information remotely when away from the office has been a lifesaver several times for fund directors, development officers and donors.

  • It's hard to tell as we just made the switch in July 2017 (review written in Oct 2017). The hope is that we will be able to utilize some of the AP functionality to increase efficiency in the office & that we will be able to implement the cash management module to reduce redundant data processing.

  • Cleaner reporting exports have reduced time needed each month for normal reporting.
  • Easier and cleaner access for view only personnel to be able to know what the numbers are with very little training.
