Intro RE NXTBlackbaud has announced the general availability of Raiser’s Edge NXT, its cloud-based fundraising and relationship management solution, following successful customer preview programmes conducted earlier this year.

Raiser’s Edge NXT combines the foundational power of the most widely adopted not-for-profit fundraising solution, Raiser’s Edge™, with innovative fundraising and relationship management technology.

Benefits for users include mobile access to data, a user-friendly and role-based interface, intelligent analytics, built-in payment processing, strong marketing outreach and unlimited user licenses.

Raiser’s Edge NXT also gives access to support from the world’s largest philanthropic network as customers are able to share expertise with more than 30,000 organisations, as well as leverage support from Blackbaud employees around the world.

A large number of not-for-profit organisations in the UK have already signed up for Raiser’s Edge NXT, including: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)Deafblind UK, Breast Cancer Ireland, St Wilfrid’s Hospice Chichester, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Rugby School and SPANA.

“We used to have localised databases around the world, but felt it was important to invest in one system that could bring us uniformity and offer us a much better toolkit. We’ll be using Raiser’s Edge NXT in France, Germany, Netherlands, India and Australia as well as in the UK. We have many different users, some who just need access to simple data and others who have much more advanced needs, which is where the role-based interface works really well for us. The mobile access is also of great benefit for our fundraisers out in the field.”

Allan Hulse, director, International Response Fundraising of PETA

“I have to create an annual impact report for our major donors. Raiser’s Edge NXT removes the need to dig around in donor’s records and various reports to pull out details and figures, because it’s all summarised and easy to identify. This year, using Raiser’s Edge NXT to pull this report together will save me hours, if not days. Also new updates to Raiser’s Edge NXT happen automatically, which has been really time-saving for our IT team.”

Stacey Thompson, CRM data manager, Wellington College

“The arrival of Raiser’s Edge NXT brings cutting edge cloud technology to bear on the evolving challenges of the not-for-profit community.  It incorporates years of customer feedback and product development into a mobile, accessible solution with an elegant interface. We thank our early adopters for being an important part of the development process and look forward to helping these organisations use the solution to save more time, raise more money, and power their missions.”

Jerome Moisan, managing director, Blackbaud Europe.
