Many scout troops, having been frustrated by email back-and-forth, shared document versioning and personal nagging, are looking to improve their group's productivity and coordination by bringing their interaction online. "I am a Brownie Troop Leader and have used Qlubb to post all our meeting dates for the year and other outings” says Nora Sparrow, troop leader from Georgia. “Now I don’t have parents calling or emailing wanting to know when is the next meeting. Kids and parents tend to loose paper reminders and newsletter, so this is perfect. They just go to the site and all the info is there. It is awesome."
Beyond an email list, Qlubb focuses on providing event planning and task assignment functionality that facilitate the coordination of people and activities, all within a simple and intuitive interface. "I was thinking of signing up with Yahoogroups but Qlubb has so much more to offer. I use it for our service unit that includes several troops in our area. This allows us to be in touch as we plan events and spread the word quickly. One feature that stood out over Yahoo was the ability to assign tasks. I love it!" says Tracy Austin, troop leader from Texas.
“I like that it is a one stop place for all kinds of information, love the tasking and the invite. Qlubb is a great way to see what is being done, who is doing what. It is a wonderful website” says Raelynn Kelly, a Minnesota scout leader.
"As a former girl scout and the parent of a Daisy girl scout, I understand and appreciate the extraordinary efforts and leadership required of scout leaders and parents, to create rewarding experiences that benefit their children and their communities"
