Upgrade to PackMaster 2008
July 11th, 2008
Rochester, NY
SOAR, a premier provider of quality online services to Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Girl Scout Troops announces enhanced integration with PackMaster 2008 to its hosted website service myPack.

Keeping scout records up-to-date and communicating information to unit members continues to be a time consuming task for Troops. SOAR's latest upgrade to the PackMaster Import feature will greatly reduce the time required to synchronize data between PackMaster software and a Pack's website.

The new upgrade also makes Individual Progress Reports (example) available online for the first time. This allows scouts and parents to view a scout's achievement record and progress towards their next rank, including a list of necessary requirements to complete. This will significantly reduce the burdon on the Advancement Chair allowing them to focus on working with scouts to help them advance instead of spending time on paperwork.

The latest update to SOAR's PackMaster Import feature includes:

  • Single click export from PackMaster 2008
  • Single file import into SOAR myPack
  • Encryption of the PackMaster export file to protect sensitive information
  • Support for short website usernames using the first intial and last name of the member
  • Individual Progress Report for Scouts including
    • Scout Ranks and dates achieved
    • Completed Webelos Badges and and date of completion
    • Requirements completed towards next rank
    • Requirements necessary to complete next rank

SOAR continues to provide its customers new and upgraded features for the same yearly cost.
