Overall Satisfaction with The Raisers Edge

The Raiser's Edge is currently being used by the Advancement and Alumni office and the Student Awards team at my organization. The software acts as our alumni, donor and prospect database, and is the official subledger to our accounting system.
  • Raiser's Edge captures and analyzes a wide range of supporter data to report on current activities and predict trends for future opportunities.
  • Online Express has allowed us to unlock a whole new way of getting our message out to the community, giving us a chance to compete for scarce resources.
  • The Raiser's Edge software is intuitive and reasonably easy to use by even the least technologically-savvy fundraiser.
  • The Alumni module could use some enhancement to better enable the recording/reporting of multiple credentials from the same institution.
  • For a smaller organization, the price point of this solution may present a challenge.
  • This user is patiently awaiting the roll out of additional the functionality in Raiser's Edge: NXT that was promised at bbcon2015 that will see the Executive Director and Gift Processor roles brought to the user base.
  • The all-inclusive pricing model of Raiser's Edge: NXT has allowed our organization to more accurately budget for annual expenditures related to fundraising data management.
  • The ability to access and analyze data on the go has made our fundraising team more effective and efficient.
The Raiser's Edge is well suited to teams both small and large. Its functionality can enhance even the most efficient and effective fundraising office, and can empower users from gift entry through management to make better decisions about their operation.
