Salsa CRM vs. The Raiser's Edge/NXT

Salsa is a more user-friendly Raiser's Edge CRM alternative.
Here’s why you should consider switching from Raiser's Edge software.

1) Easy to Use

98% of nonprofits are small to mid-size organizations, who can’t afford or manage complicated, robust platforms that require a team of tech-savvy experts to manage the systems and their integrations.

Your time is precious, and you’re competing for attention and dollars against larger nonprofits with sophisticated marketing techniques. You need the best tools and the ability to execute campaigns quickly.

Salsa‘s easy to use interface offers built-in automation, reporting, drag and drop form builders and industry best practice content layout. These are just a few examples of how intuitive the Salsa system is for nonprofits, even for non-technical users.

2) Fully-Integrated Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage

With Salsa, your organization get’s a single sign-on integration between Salsa CRM and Salsa Engage, giving you all the tools you need for successful online and offline fundraising.

The toolkit includes Salsa Engage for online marketing automation, fundraising, advocacy, event registration, and peer to peer fundraising and seamlessly integrates all of that online activity with a Salsa CRM solution offering donor management, volunteer management, event management, direct mail fundraising, payment processing, and robust reporting.

Now, nonprofits can easily scale as their needs grow WITHOUT having to pay exhorbatant software fees or hire a team of tech-savvy experts to manage the system.

We converted from The Raiser’s Edge to Salsa in mid-2016, and the transition is going well. The Raiser’s Edge NXT upgrade would have been 3x as expensive as Salsa.
