Case Study: Girl Scouts Cookie Finder App

Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts of the USA is nationally known as an organization that strives to meet the needs of every girl in a girl-centric and girl-driven environment. The Girl Scouts inspires girls to find courage, explore new adventures, express confidence in their uniqueness, develop the strength of character to stand by their values, and create lifelong connections to peers and mentors. The annual Girl Scout Cookie sale is not only a fundraiser to support the nonprofit organization, but an opportunity for Girl Scouts across the country to learn about conducting business and sales. Since Chepri® developed the Girl Scouts Cookie Finder app, it has helped increase sales of Girl Scout Cookies at cookie booths nationwide.
