Pros

I like the ease of logging in. I also like the clean looking interface, and am looking forward to more options to come.
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.
I like NXT for the look and feel and that I can pull reports into a good excel format. My staff love that they can see vendor history and payments.

Pros

We love how user friendly and easy to use SchoolAdmin is. The customer support is fantastic.
I love that it is absolutely user-friendly. I love how it is organized.
I appreciate the ease of use and the scope of what can be managed through the software. I am a team of one for a school of over 500 students.

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).
You are not able to use papersave with it just yet so the drag and drop/ upload feature is obsolete to me.
This was a terrible option for a company with just 2 people in the accounting department. I'm sure it may be good for a MUCH larger organization, but a bad choice here.

Cons

The search function, while logically, can be confusing, with many options that seem to overlap.
When things have gone wrong, a member of the School Admin support team has responded quickly and stuck with me until the problem could be found and resolved.
If everyone is not 'all in' then it becomes difficult to get all the data in one place.
