James Bradford Evans founded Bradford Consulting Group in 2001. As Principal Consultant for Bradford Consulting Group, “Jim” is dedicated to cultivating a personalized relationship with each client to offer a superior level of service to his or her organization. Working exclusively with the nonprofit community for the past twenty-one years, Jim has helped thousands of individuals improve their Raiser’s Edge and overall database efficiency through both training and consultation.

Blackbaud is a supplier of software and services specifically designed for nonprofit organizations and the Raiser’s Edge is their popular CRM database software. Blackbaud, who reported $788.3 million in revenue in 2017, describe themselves as the world’s leading cloud software company powering social good.

In 1997, Jim joined Blackbaud as a Raiser’s Edge Product Specialist and has continually supported and consulted on the database software beginning with The Raiser’s Edge for MS-DOS through its latest version NXT. His first year was spent almost exclusively taking calls and resolving Raiser’s Edge client issues on the Customer Support Hotline. Jim went on to become an instructor for Blackbaud University and helped pioneer the Raiser’s Edge training program for the company. Traveling extensively throughout North America, performing regional and onsite trainings, hosting user groups and rolling out major products, Jim became acutely aware of the challenges his clients face. Throughout his career with Blackbaud he received many individual honors for leadership, hard work, dedication and client satisfaction.

As an independent company, Bradford Consulting Group is able to offer the Raiser’s Edge client a superior level of service.
