Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud Education Management Solutions (formerly Blackbaud K–12 ON Solutions)

We use Blackbaud across all divisions in our school. The education management solution, in particular, is used by both the Middle and Upper Schools for SIS and LMS purposes, and in the admissions division for student enrollment.
  • LMS works well. It's easy to manage classrooms and curriculum with Blackbaud.
  • We like the ability to use the Blackbaud ID to SSO with third-party providers and integrate with Azure AD.
  • Blackbaud Enrollment management allows for paperless student enrollment at school.
  • We'd like to have better integration options, especially with the Microsoft EDU suite and OneNote.
  • Blackbaud still uses an old podium interface in many places. It needs to be aligned with more modern web design elements.
  • The query tools are not as robust as we'd like them to be.
  • It's great to have a single database between admissions and SIS.
  • Raisers Edge, Financial Edge, and Blackbaud Education solutions are still separate products, and I wish it was a single back-end database.
  • I can't add anything else at this point.
It works most of the time.
Blackbaud is great as an LMS and works very well. It's more cumbersome when trying to build queries and retrieve data.
