Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud Financial Edge NXT

This is our sole accounting platform; it is how we manage all our books. We do fund accounting and need to track over 200 distinct funds with multiple layers of tracking.
  • Glitches constantly - when entering invoices in particular.
  • Reports are way too clunky and cumbersome to create.
  • Should be able to click on info from a report and drill down.
  • Need default reports that auto-pull ALL data so you don't accidentally exclude accounts or projects.
  • Need an easier way to group accounts on reports, including GL reports: to roll up all account codes into one section or line on an income statement, for instance.
  • Support is often unhelpful: they just refer you to KnowledgeBase articles.
  • Reports take way too long to run. Sometimes 20+ minutes!!
  • Has made reporting take way longer than it should.
  • Time suck.
  • Added stress.
