    Pros
    The NXT online service is very easy to use and very flexible to our needs for reporting. The support is good, most reps are very responsive and I love Blackbaud University.
    The integration between Altru (our sub-ledger), BB Merchant Services and FE/NXT is superb in my opinion. You have the ability to track a transaction backwards and forwards.
    I like the ease of logging in. I also like the clean looking interface, and am looking forward to more options to come.
    Cons
    There are so many tabs and fields, and they can get very confusing. Also, there are some required fields that can be frustrating (I might not know the gender of a child with a gender neutral name).
    Once blackbaud lures you in you are trapped, then they raise the prices , sometimes by three times the original amount, and your company suffers.
    You are not able to use papersave with it just yet so the drag and drop/ upload feature is obsolete to me.

    My review of Financial Edge NXT

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    I like Financial Edge NXT and I couldn’t imagine doing my job without it!

    Pros

    I like that this software is for finance and accounting professionals. It has helped me to perform the daily functions of my job with limited interruptions.

    Cons

    I haven’t been able to understand the allocation module, and so we are still doing our investments manually. The guide that is provided seems to work more for people who have an overall understanding of how it should work.

    Great Fund Accounting Software

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    We moved from QuickBooks to BlackBaud because we needed a fund accounting program and it has performed well for our organization. Our department heads now have access to the site and can see their financials more than just once a month which is game changing for financial decisions.

    Pros

    The cost of this software verses the others in the market is very affordable. The implementation went very smooth and it has been working very well. Support is usually really quick and helpful to get problems solved.

    Cons

    The reporting functions are time consuming to set up but most reports can be built to suit your needs and work great after the initial build.

    Not what it is projected to be

    Reviewed 21 days ago

    We were not actually able to use the software. The implementation specialist was changed 3 times with the good workers being the ones moved off the development. The 4 month scheduled process turned into a 14 month with no responsibility being claimed by BB for the delays.

    Pros

    The look of the web-based interface is really good and flows well. The reporting is highly customizable and sharable through email or dashboards.

    Cons

    The receivable module is still not available in the browser view nor are the EFT payments in Canada. So you have to do this in database view which is old, cumbersome, and confusing.

    Blackbaud for Nonprofits

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Overall this is a great product. We are very pleased with Blackbaud and do not plan on changing vendors any time soon.

    Pros

    This software is perfect for our organization. It continues to implement updated features to make our jobs easier.

    Cons

    The expense tracking sometimes appears to be offline and causes our staff a good amount of time to enter their expenses.

    Good product - backward implementation

    Reviewed a year ago

    The worst part is implementation. We had to make decisions about setup that cannot be changed before we fully understood how we wanted to use the software. They should have allowed us to use our own data in a "sandbox" model to learn how things work.

    Pros

    I love the fact that you can create journal entries and invoices and include that information in reports before posting them. This helps to avoid mistakes. The web view is user friendly and fairly intuitive.

    Cons

    The database view is archaic and not user friendly. Many functions have not yet been converted to the web view and must be done in the database view.
