It is a challenge for many funeral homes to stay up to date and informed on the latest IT solutions. Many funeral directors will say they have IT systems “that work”, even though employees, customers and relatives may have a different opinion.
Many IT systems are becoming old-fashioned and difficult to replace.Becoming trapped with an old and outdated solution can be very dangerous for your funeral business.
Modern technology can provide great competitive advantages through automation, streamlining, simplification and enhanced overview.
Good solutions help you have more effective processes, so you can focus on running the funeral business. They should be a business driver for growth, better results, and satisfied clients and employees.
There are still, unfortunately, many examples in the industry of funeral homes that still use old-fashioned and ineffective solutions. Are you one of them?
Signs that your funeral home needs new IT solutions:
- Your current IT solution is not cloud based. You need to have special software running locally or physically in your office to do your work.
- You use Excel sheets and word templates for everything from staff planning to customer registrations.
- Your funeral home office is full of papers and documents.
- Clients and relatives are complaining that response time is too long.
- Clients and relatives must physically go to your funeral home office, or call to do even the smallest tasks.
If you answered yes to at least one of the questions, we recommend that you continue reading.
Your funeral home should have a cloud-based system which can be accessed via a web browser on any device (PC/tablet/mobile) connected to the internet. It is also possible to directly interact with customers.
A cloud-based system does not require installation, and you do not need to consider either data retention (own servers), updates or upgrades. Instead of purchasing software licenses, you pay for the access to the software, and you may pay regular prices per month per user.
It's about getting IT delivered to your funeral home as a service, dynamic and flexible.
