We are considering a move to Blackbaud’s Raiser’s Edge NXT platform. We are currently using a variety of tools, including Banner.
Our principal questions relate to the implementation. Blackbaud paints a picture of a fairly straight forward implementation requiring limited IT support and relatively light support from our advancement folks. I’m thinking about (a) potential for cost overruns and; (b) the extent to which our advancement folks might need backfilling in order to focus on this conversion.
If anyone has made the transition to NXT in the past few years, I’d love to hear from you (on list or off) about your experience with their implementation practice!
