Bloomerang vs. Raiser’s Edge NXT

Raiser’s Edge NXT is a cloud-based option added onto the original Raiser’s Edge CRM solution. If you look into the solution, you’ll find that it lacks the user-friendly interface and functionality that most organizations need. Raiser’s Edge NXT pricing starts at $4,000 per year for 1,000 records, and that doesn’t include the cost of event, prospect, or volunteer tracking modules—or the training you’ll need to learn how to use NXT. 

In comparison between Bloomerang vs. Raiser’s Edge NXT, our starting Standard package for up to 1,000 records is just $1,428 a year, with special deals available for small shops. Every pricing plan includes unlimited users, full functionality, free email and chat support, and free access to Bloomerang Academy training classes, with no extra charges or modules necessary.

Katy Walsh explains why she believes Bloomerang is an excellent Raiser’s Edge NXT alternative.

“NRS had been using Raiser’s Edge for over a decade. The system was never a good fit for us. In addition, we subscribed to RE’s new product NXT. We paid the large fee for two years and still couldn’t utilize the functionality promised. Bloomerang works perfectly for us. It’s user-friendly, inexpensive, and continues to evolve with new features. And the support team and tutorials are a valuable resource.”
