Pros
Every person, without exception, has been friendly, professional and competent. I really enjoy using the chat feature and appreciate case central's ticketing system.
One of the great pros of using blackbaud has been it's reliability and ease of use.
It is a good central location for all the important information of my classroom.
Cons
The problem with this product as well as some others by the same company is that they can be cost prohibitive.
This software can be hard to predict when it will time out.
The implementation comprised of a series of useless group sessions and one-on-one sessions implementation consultations which were really training sessions in disguise.

Very helpful for benchmarking

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

We have used blackbaud for over 15 years. We use this for tuition payments and payables. Extremely easy to use.

Cons

If there are 5 people in the system then you can't get in. Not a problem except for busy times of the month

A very capable behemoth

Reviewed 2 years ago

We had an in depth investigation process to determine we needed to replace our School Management Platform and with a very friendly and helpful sales person at Blackbaud we were convinced they were the best option for the price. While not the best option purely on features and output, they beat the top choice by being 30% less expensive. By no means inexpensive, they seemed the affordable option. The...

Pros

Through the longevity of the organization and their focus on the products as well as strategic acquisition of other products and services they have folded into the platform it is capable of being used for so many of the things we need in the operations of a school. If looking to simplify the number of organizations with whom you have to make contact for the variety of operations, aligning on a single platform can be attractive and sometimes cost saving.

Cons

Because of the comprehensiveness of the platform and the longevity of some of its parts, there are many things about the systems that are incongruous or inflexible to the adaptation needed for an organization trying to remain nimble. I've used the analogy of building a wheel from the outside toward the hub before but also feel like it can be akin to the two teams building a bridge from opposite banks only to reach the middle and realize they will not connect because they were not aligned. There are part of the system that require you to build up to the end result in such a way that you cannot see that the end result is not what you desired until you are done with a lot of work that when failing at the end you have to unpack and redo again and again until it is right.

Teachers for Teachers

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall it has been a decent experience using K-12. No software is perfect, but this software gets the job done and is functional.

Pros

I love that there are so many different options available on this software. I can see my students' information, their parents' contact information, birthdays, grades, and assignments all in the same place. It is a good central location for all the important information of my classroom.

Cons

This software can be hard to predict when it will time out. Unfortunately there were occasions when putting in grades that I would lose entire portions and have to retype the grades because the page would time out without warning, and the grades hadn't been saved. I had to be very diligent about saving the page manually after entering any grades.

Fantastic holistic program. Horrible implementation experience

Reviewed 7 years ago

In 2016, we made the decision to move from our former database (Rediker) to Blackbaud Cloud hosted products: Core, OnRecord, OnCampus, OnBoard, Raiser's Edge NXT, Financial Edge NXT and Smart Tuition. We wanted a holistic database for all of our departments to pull from and for information to move seamlessly in realtime. We are in the middle of the first year and we are very pleased with the functionality,...

Pros

Holistic, cloud-based platform which allows data to move seamlessly and in realtime.

Cons

The implementation process needs a lot of work.

I use Blackbaud to look up information on alumni and potential donors.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

I love the "recently accessed" side bar that comes up every time I sign in. This allows me to go back to a record that I was previously looking at, which makes it much easier when researching donors and alumni. I also like that their constituent ID is right there next to their name for a quick reference!

Cons

Blackbaud does pretty much everything I could want it to do. If there was something to improve on, I think it would be the constituent search screen. When I search for a constituent, Blackbaud brings up all possible matches. Sometimes, I use broad search words and the system will only show me the first 100 matches or so, limiting the number I can see. When I'm searching for someone with a very common name, this can make it difficult to go down the list and try to find the one I'm looking for.
