Overall Satisfaction with Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT

Our organization uses RENXT for fundraising, volunteer management, event management, donation processing, prospect management, reporting, and analysis.
  • Data entry is fairly straightforward.
  • Fundraisers like the web view's interface.
  • Query is a very useful tool.
  • Lately there has been a lot of lagging (we have an open case).
  • The rollout of new features is haphazard, users are not shepherded through the process.
  • Too much focus on sales of new features, not enough focus on helping users onboard and use current features.
  • Constituent Management
  • Donation Forms
  • Email Marketing Function
  • Reporting and Analysis
  • Prospect Management
  • Volunteer Management
  • Event Management
  • I am new to this organization, so I don't know about tangible results due to Raiser's Edge NXT yet, but they have been using the platform for a long time.
Our fundraisers use their work centers to manage their prospects and find it very helpful. The web view is great at providing information quickly and at a glance.
I was not yet working in this organization when they took the online trainings.
DonorPerfect worked well enough, but they were upgrading and not supporting the version the organization I worked for had so when we had a choice to go with DonorPerfect's upgraded platform or change to Blackbaud's Raiser's Edge, we chose to go with Blackbaud's Raiser's Edge. It has many more options and comprehensive solutions for data management, tracking donor relationships, and other specific details about constituents, as well as more robust query, export, and reporting tools.

Blackbaud Raiser's Edge NXT is the most comprehensive fundraising data management tool on the market and I have generally liked using it for years, but in the last few years, the company has put more effort into its sales team than its customer support team. Webinars where I am looking for useful tactical information seem like sales pitches. I need practical information on best practices using the current tools we have. Between knowledgebase, BB University, the Blackbaud Community, and other spaces that are meant to be helpful, I get lost and frustrated now when trying to find the answer to simple questions.
