An empty living room with a TV on the wall

The funeral profession has been challenged by consumers to make memorial services more personal and reflective of the essence of the individual. With the help of Frazer Consultants, a funeral home can deliver to a family the personal experience they are asking for.

 

Tribute Videos, picture collages, and online memorials are an integral part of the 21st-century bereavement ritual,” said Matt Frazer, president of Frazer Consultants. “Face it. Images are a powerful facet of our culture. Just look at the visuals on CNN coming from Haiti, the photos in magazines after 9/11, the pictures in tabloids and the popularity of Facebook, YouTube, and digital cameras. They’re all image-based. That phenomenon has carried over to the funeral profession, too.”

 

That’s why we’ve decided to launch Tribute Center. The all-in-one tool offers varied technical services and products, including its newly-launched Tribute Video software.

 

“I think a Tribute Video is one of the most compelling tools a funeral home can use to help their families in the grieving process. The combination of music and images helps evoke emotion that offers healing. The process of going home to gather, sort and select photos one by one can play an integral part in the healing process. It comforts the living, and honors the memory of the person who has passed,” said Frazer.

 

However, relying on companies not in the funeral profession is always a little risky, cautioned Frazer.

 

“Delayed delivery and mistakes are a constant worry, and it’s expensive to use those second-tier services,” he said. “Trying to do a memorial video yourself under pressure isn’t such a good idea either. Outdated, off-the-shelf video tools can be frustrating and stressful, and there’s no technical help available if you run into glitches. That’s why my company decided to do something about this problem. Our software has been six years in the making, but we think we’ve got a winner.”
