Overall Satisfaction with Raiser's Edge NXT

Raiser's Edge Nxt really helps management and our development team. It provides an easy access and friendly interface to the most important information on a constituents record in seconds. It saves a lot of time, because minimal training is required and its saves a lot of steps to access the summary information. Now there is no need for them to request a bio from me about a person, as they can see everything themselves. They save so much time now because they don't have to go through a lot of tabs and try to gather or remember the information. It gives them a quick glimpse as to what's critically important about a constituent, including a giving summary.
  • It consolidates a constituent's record and takes all the work out of running summary reports which saves you so much time.
  • It provides a much easier interface for our development team to enter quick actions on the fly while the information is still fresh.
  • It saves your Database Manager valuable time from running reports and frees them up to concentrate more on the database itself.
  • I would like to see them add using defaults with actions and maybe a few other places.
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Increased revenue from new donors
  • Increased revenue from existing donors
  • Reduced IT expenditure due to cloud deployment
I can see that an increase in efficiency would definitely come out of using RE NXT as it saves so much time in so many ways. I think that it could help us raise more money if more users could see and appreciate the value and were willing to change.
Raiser's Edge NXT is best if you have at least two development staff that are doing direct outreach to constituents. If you are a one person shop and you enter everything yourself and you do not have a lot of users in RE than I don't think you would appreciate its value.
