Financial Edge NXT is a cloud accounting solution tailored for nonprofits that provides a general ledger, projects, grants, endowments, accounts payable and receivable, fixed assets, banking, and more. It offers real-time reporting, with one-click drill-down functionality and export capability. Edge NXTFE NXT is being used by our accounting department as we try to migrate off of the client-server version to a SaaS environment. [It's being used by the] accounting department and some in IT with dashboards. NXT helps us eliminate using a Citrix environment for some of the FE use.,Dashboards are easy to create and look professional. Learning curve from the client-server version of Financial Edge was minimal.,Missing functionality, needs missing modules from the client server version or the DB view. Ability to edit users within NXT.,7,Ability for staff to work remotely without the use of Citrix. Moving to a SaaS environment for our core applications.,Operational efficiency Reduced annual audit cost Improved data accuracy Reduced IT expenditure due to cloud deployment,We have tried some of the other applications, Raiser's Edge. We're waiting for completed web development before investigating any further.,,Salesforce App Cloud, Yardi Property Management, Tableau Server,8,2,budgeting AP AR,Dashboards,Further expand dashboards reporting,7,No,Prior Experience with the Product Existing Relationship with the Vendor,Wait a little longer for development of the software,Vendor implemented,No,Change management was minimal,user setup,7,9,Yes,We had an outage and a support rep would email me hourly on the status of the outage.,Reporting,User Maintenance,No,6If you are looking for flexibility in reporting and access FE is worth reviewingWe decided to go from FE & RE to the new NXT products for several reasons. Development officers can now access it remotely; we can log in from anywhere, we can have campus-wide reporting made available without the need to change each computer, reporting has more flexibility and auto bank reconciliation to name a few. We are new to NXT but have used Blackbaud for several years in our organization.,Remote access is easy to use and so convenient. Development members can access funds and provide the most up to date information to the constituents. Access to project reports by our fund directors campus wide is something that we are working on implementing right now since the use of reporting is so accessible. The bank reconciliation module is a time saver.,Logging into the data base view could be streamlined for faster login. Create a system that would allow groups of invitations for FE NXT all at once. We have FE NXT view only for our fund directors and development officers across campus and the need to invite each one individually and not have the ability to set them up at the same time is very time consuming and inefficient. Our fund directors change frequently so this is definitely something that I would be interested in seeing an update completed.,8,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.,Operational efficiency Improved data accuracy Improved insight into your organization's performance Better ability to report to funders and key stakeholders Faster month-end process Automation of business processes Increased scalability due to cloud deployment,We use multiple software products from Blackbaud and others that are compatible with FE NXT. One that is being currently being implemented is Omatic's Positive Pay for banking. Blackbaud set it up in our system and already had a format for our specific bank so that we can add another layer of security in our bank accounts.,,Raiser's Edge NXT,7,5,Reporting - Fund accounting specific software Ease of Access for multiple areas of campus Security is definitely a positive with this system when setting up internal controls.,We have been able to set up an import format for entering all of our scholarship payments with a spreadsheet. Without the need to enter each one individually it increases accuracy and has saved us approximately 3 days of work during each award cycle. We have also found it much easier to customize credit card entry for our monthly processing so that it can be done as the receipts come in and not wait until the end of the month. We are in the process of setting this up now.,I hope that we will be able to produce annual donor reports with graphs that include both the endowment balance, the current restricted balance and the reserve balance of each fund along with the amount of scholarships awarded since inception.,10,Yes,Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Existing Relationship with the Vendor Analyst Reports,I'm completely satisfied.,No,9,NoUnspecified

I would prefer that we have full customer support for FE NXT but there was an additional charge for the ability to call support which we felt was not cost effective. When we have used chat and online support the response has been good and issues resolved in a timely manner.
