What Can Software do for the Funeral Industry?

Client families have been snapping pictures of their family and friends for decades.  More recently, almost everyone has access to some type of video recording device – for most; their phone is also their camera and camcorder.  The world is evolving and technology is readily available to everyone – including funeral directors. 

Advancements in technology span the globe and touch the lives of almost every conceivable industry, even the funeral industry.  Funeral software now enables families to connect in ways never thought possible, even in death.  Funeral webcasting makes this possible.  A funeral director, using a simple video set-up can broadcast a funeral or memorial service over the internet.  Guest can be invited to a password protected viewing should they not be able to attend in person.  The experience is amazing and the benefits to both client families and your funeral home are tremendous.

Another age-old funeral tradition is the poster board.  These too are being left behind as new technology to create DVD tribute videos takes their place.  Historically, the poster boards displayed photographs of the deceased and special family moments in happier times.  Created to evoke memories of the deceased and remind everyone of the place their loved one had in their lives, poster boards can’t do what a video tribute can.  A DVD tribute video is a moving tribute that combines pictures, videos, music and words to tell a loved one’s life story.  Tribute video software enables the funeral director to easily assemble these cinematic quality movies in-house.  The resulting videos are amazing – almost like watching the story of someone’s life unfolding before your eyes.

In addition to creating DVD tribute videos, funeral professionals can also utilize all-in-one funeral software for personalizing a full range of products from funeral stationery to funeral candles.  The software gives the funeral director the power to provide client families with professional quality items that are under the directors’ complete control from development to the presentation of the final product to the family. 

The funeral stationery software permits the funeral director to easily create and print custom items with a matching theme to add that personal touch.  The same theme can be used on all funeral products from the DVD tribute video holders, to guest register books, memorial bookmarks, the funeral webcast and even the thank-you cards.  No specialty pre-printed stationery is needed.  Using blank card stock for each item to be made, the custom funeral stationery can be created using the pre-formatted design templates in the software and then printed onto blank card stock from the funeral homes own printer.   With this flexibility, the funeral director can also print as many or as few as they wish.  Software of this kind includes over 500 themes to allow client families to choose an occupation, interest or hobby that exemplifies the life they’re honoring, making each item particularly meaningful.

Each day, thousands of funeral home professionals put their confidence in new technology and funeral software.  Isn’t it time you discovered the power of software built with the funeral professional in mind?
