What do you like best?
The ease of reporting and finding information about payments, vendors, accounts, etc. in FE NXT is almost worth the price alone.
What do you dislike?
FE NXT is still in the process of adding functionality, so there are a number of accounting tasks that still need to be completed in the old interface, which is clunky and outdated.
Recommendations to others considering the product
The integration with Raiser's Edge is a huge timesaver for us - it avoids a lot of double-entry and allows for easy reconciliation of contribution revenues. I don't know that we would have chosen this product if we weren't also using Raiser's Edge, but it's a very full-featured software package, with the ability to scale and customize to some extent through the addition of other modules.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Upgrading to RE NXT was really our primary motivation, and since we use both RE and FE, it was cheaper to upgrade both than just one. Even though we thought the old FE interface was just fine, there are some very nice advantages to FE NXT. One of my favorites is reports with active links to the underlying journal entries and accounts, so it's easy to drill down and find more information when needed.
