Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

We currently use Blackbaud Education Management Solutions across our entire school. We use RE NXT in our development office, FE NXT in our business office, and the tuition management and education management software for our parents and students.
  • Integrated systems making it easier to manage multiple places of data.
  • Ease of use--intuitive and quick to pick up how to use the software.
  • Great support--knowledgeable support to help when issues arise.
  • The tuition management system has room for improvement to deal with tuition discounts.
  • Better advanced training for the solutions.
  • Access for certain users (like teachers or managers) to see what parents and students see without having to grant too much access to the system.
  • Time savings.
  • Efficiency.
  • Parent satisfaction.
Generally good support personnel although occasionally you will get someone who is new and maybe not completely familiar with the software.
Blackbaud Education Management has worked very well for our school. It is easy to navigate, requires little training, and is very intuitive. The system would work great for smaller schools with employees who wear many hats because of this. I also like that Blackbaud tries to listen to their customers and bring needed updates to the software.

Integrating Blackbaud Education Management Solutions

It was easy to set up the integrations especially since we were using Blackbaud partners. They pretty much handle the set up with little involvement needed from the school
  • Magnus Health
  • BrightArrow
We have integrations with both of these Blackbaud partners and it was very easy to set up.
We do not have any planned future integrations at this point.
  • File import/export
  • Single Signon
  • API (e.g. SOAP or REST)
I think for a small school with limited staff, integrations have helped to save us time and increased our efficiency. Having one main database that integrates and feeds to other systems has allowed us the flexibility to have multiple software systems but without having to deal with multiple data entry upkeep.
