Help Your Costumers Find You
The most important reason for Booth Scheduler and Cookie Locator is to make it easier for the public to find and purchase cookies. The data from the Booth Scheduler (both "chain store" sites and "troop" sites) will populate the data in the online Cookie Booth Locator and the Cookie Booth Locator App for Apple and Android - allowing the public to easily find a booth in their area by inputting their zip code.
You can review how this works by reviewing the "How will all this benefit my troop?" question in your eBUDDE Booth Scheduling Manual.
Troop Cookie Managers will be able to view and chose from a list of locations, dates and time slots available for each council-sponsored location. All "chain stores" booth locations currently utilized throughout our Council will be available on the site.
Service Unit Cookie Managers will be securing booth site permissions within their area. They will provide a list for the Council Product Sales Team to upload to the eBudde Booth Scheduler. There is also a process on the eBudde Booth Scheduler to input troop non-Council sponsored booth locations.
A benefit to having this information online is that is works in conjunction with the Cookie Booth Locator and the Cookie Booth Locator App. The booth scheduler on eBudde will help streamline the booth scheduling process throughout the council. There will be less confusion and eliminate scheduling conflicts. It's easy to do, is in real time and it only takes minutes.
Scheduling happens in 6 "rounds" to promote fairness.
