Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

RE requires Windows, and in some cases, can be slow. The browser-based version (NXT) is expensive and still limited in functionality. RE is a powerful fundraising database, but doesn't integrate well with other independent school solutions. I would highly recommend RE for any organization who needs a powerful fundraising database, but doesn't have any other major database needs that aren't fulfilled by RE.

There are many CRM tools on the market however Raisers Edge especially with NXT offers everything you need in one database. It’s a little pricey however Blackbaud support is super helpful and they offer so many tools and add ins.

Truthfully it would be just too much to try to switch. We are happy with the product and its functionality. We are slightly unhappy with the value because as I mentioned before, whenever you want to add functionality that seems quite basic, it costs more money.

I believe that we would be very likely to renew our use of The Raiser's Edge. The software seems to meet our business needs. It's very flexible and easy to use. The abundance of resources that Blackbaud provides via their website make training a breeze. In conclusion, I believe it to be a great product!

It is the best product available, so there is no doubt we will continue to use it. However, we have had some frustrations with the software and some glitches that were not fully explained to us so if something else were to come available that were better, I can see our organization considering making a change.

I think we will always use Raiser's Edge. Our staff have become experts and have learned the best ways to use it. Since we have such a history with Raiser's Edge, it would be more a burden than anything to change to a new system and learn it all over again. It hasn't caused problems where we feel we should explore other opportunites.

I only wish that Raisers Edge would sync better with Mac products. It's still mostly for Windows, and requires a lot of maintenance in order to make it easier for Mac. The search engines can be a little easier to navigate as well. There should also be some information already in place, when searching for records.

If I were still in my previous job, we would continue using it and the wonderful training we purchased to help staff better use it. I would highly recommend signing up for a training contract so staff can leverage all of its power.

I haven't used any other membership database program - from what I experienced of Rasier's Edge, it's complicated to learn but once you get the hang of it, it becomes a very efficient and advantageous tool.

I am choosing to not "renew" this product because I'm at a different organization. The prior organization is still using Raiser's Edge and is very happy with it. It was a good choice for an organization with 4 gift officers and a budget of over $50 million. For an organization with a smaller fundraising goal it doesn't make sense.
