Swift Shopper to Provide Technology Solution for Boy Scouts of America’s 2017 National Jamboree

Swift Shopper has been selected to deploy the grocery shopping and payment solution at the Boy Scouts of America’s 2017 National Jamboree, marking the first year the BSA will be making technology integral to food operations at the event.

The event, which will be held July 19-28 at the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve in West Virginia, will host an estimated 40,000 visitors, Scouts, Explorers, Venturers, and volunteers for 10 days of adventure and fun.

This year, the jamboree’s six commissary tents will operate as grocery stores. Attendees will use the Swift Shopper Mobile App to plan their meals, share team shopping lists, scan items in the jamboree stores, and complete payments from the team accounts.

Swift Shopper was selected to help the jamboree better manage food choices and teach Scouts about planning and budgeting for their daily meal preparation. The Swift Shopper Mobile Platform is designed to work in retail grocery stores to enable users to share shopping lists, discover nearby deals, and skip the checkout lines.

“This is a great opportunity to teach scouts that they can share in the family meal planning process, learn budgeting and understand the effort to shop and prepare food.  When scouts return home, they can continue using the app with their families to share shopping lists and plan meals,” said Naomi Wilson, CEO of Swift Shopper.
