Pros

The support has always been outstanding -- every individual I've worked with is friendly and super helpful. And the crowdsourced support (online) gets good answers to your questions too.

VW

Virginia W.

This is still a good software for the church wanting to connect with its members more frequently. We love the ability to track leadership encounters with our membership.

KL

Karif L.

We previously used Shelby V. Both products have a great deal of advantages in our congregational needs. ShelbyNext seems to be more user friendly that Shelby V.

Pros

Financial Edge has been a great experience; we have streamlined data processes and improved our reporting cabability more than 10 fold. We love the project and grant data management pieces as well.

ET

Elaine T.

So many ways in which FE is the best solution out there. I love how it integrates and makes each task seamless.

NM

Nancy M.

I like the ease of logging in. I also like the clean looking interface, and am looking forward to more options to come.

JB

Jennifer B.

Cons

There is no alert given if there is a problem on a background check. There is no way to indicate family relationships such as grandmother, siblings, nieces, nephew, etc.

PR

Pam R.

We've had several instances where when problems arose, customer service reps were just as perplexed with the issue.

BS

Brittni S.

No back arrow to look at the previous transaction entered. If you are entering a list of manual checks and need to add a vendor all of the previous info entered (date, check number etc) is lost.

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).

SS

Samantha S.

Once blackbaud lures you in you are trapped, then they raise the prices , sometimes by three times the original amount, and your company suffers.

DB

DLynae B.

You are not able to use papersave with it just yet so the drag and drop/ upload feature is obsolete to me.
