This was so easy to use. We hired one of their recommended deveopers, they built the website and truly it was flawless.

Pros

Overall Blackbaud is a great software program for donor management. I would highly recommend to all fundraising professionals.

JK

Jacob K.

Now we have the best of both worlds. Most of our office now works exclusively in the web view and with it, they can now get immediate information by themselves that assists them in their work.

The ease of use which makes training co-workers much quicker and more easily understandable. The various modules make database management more effective (specifically EVENTS).

Cons

System is in serious need of a user experience upgrade - badly. It was extremely frustrating to figure out and some of the services required code-knowledge.

JB

James B.

Ultimately, between the odd culture and the mess of the social profiles, we ended up switching to a different software.

JP

Janae P.

It's also very, very expensive. The "newsfeed" type feature showing people who subscribed/unsubscribed/interacted in social media was strange and useless.

Cons

While the tools at your disposal are copious, new users will be at a complete loss. We transferred over from another system and we still required a lot of training.

My biggest complaint with Blackbaud is customer service. Prior to the new procedures, I was able to call and speak to a human being and explain my issue.

PS

Phyllis S.

Taking a training class can be quite costly and I missed a week of work because I was taught by a live in-person instructor.
