Little Brownie Bakers joins Digital Cookie™ platform, Girl Scouts’ first national rollout of online cookie sales
Baker aligns cookie-ordering system with Girl Scout Cookie Program’s web-based platform
LOUISVILLE, KY –Girl Scout Cookie baker, Little Brownie Bakers, is fully integrating their cookie management technology with the new Digital Cookie initiative recently announced by Girl Scouts of the USA.
The Digital Cookie platform is a groundbreaking new addition to the Girl Scout Cookie Program that allows Girl Scouts to set up their own
personalized sales pages, take credit card payments and ship directly to their customers. This revolutionary enhancement adds a digital layer that expands and strengthens the ways girls learn the essential 5 Skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
As the Girl Scout organization developed this exciting new component of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Little Brownie Bakers collaborated
and invested in reconfiguring its own eBudde software, the digital-ordering system used by the Girl Scout councils it serves.
When a customer buys cookies from a Girl Scout using the Digital Cookie web-based platform (or opts to donate cookies), that order seamlessly passes into the eBudde system. From there, it’s easy for Girl Scout councils to manage the sale, and simple for volunteers to track, and help girls fulfill orders placed online. If a customer opts for direct shipping, the cookies are automatically shipped from the baker and tracked for the girl and council.
“The Digital Cookie platform is revolutionizing the Girl Scout Cookie Program, and adding this digital layer will create a great modern
business educational experience for girls,” said Denise Mitchell, Senior Director of Marketing and Innovation at Little Brownie Bakers. “And now, girls can reach family and friends all across the country with just the click of a button!”
Most Girl Scout councils served by Little Brownie nationwide are participating in a Digital Cookie platform in the 2014–2015 cookie season.
More girls are expected to join as the program continues to grow over time.
The Digital Cookie platform strengthens, expands, and enhances the Girl Scout Cookie Program by combining the values and lessons of
door-to-door and booth sales with crucial 21st century business and entrepreneurial skills, continuing Girl Scouts’ long tradition of preparing
today’s girls to be the female leaders of tomorrow. For more information and to see if Digital Cookie is available in your area, visit www.girlscouts.org/digitalcookie.
