As a funeral professional, you’ve surely heard about the magical benefits of funeral software. Instead of relying on cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all funerals, give your client families the gift of truly being able to celebrate their loved one’s life experience.


Funerals serve many purposes. In addition to the practical aspect of burying the dead, they provide a unique opportunity for friends and loved ones to gather and celebrate the life of someone who touched them all. Funerals help those left behind come to terms with the final nature of death and the fragility of life. They initiate the healing process and provide a community to reflect and mourn with. Funerals allow us to pay our respects to the dead, but are primarily to support those closest to the deceased. An event this momentous should be a true celebration of life; the life lost and the life ahead for survivors. As a funeral professional, you truly can affect the success of this event. The ability to create personalized items — be they prayer cards, funeral register books, or even memorial candles — is a gift that funeral software will enable you to give the bereaved.


Instead of the funeral services of yore, today’s funerals celebrate the individual spirit of the departed. Staid, standard funeral register books have been abandoned in favor of register books that are personalized with photographs and favorite quotes. Tribute Videos are nowadays considered the cornerstone of visitation, providing a visual story of the departed with personal photographs, videos, music, and text. Funeral webcasting is becoming more popular as families are separated by miles and may not be able to attend physically. Memorial keepsakes, such as funeral candles, bookmarks, holiday remembrance ornaments, and memorial folders include photos and other personal elements and are used for many months or even years after the service.


These items are neither difficult nor expensive to offer your client families. In fact, with easy-to-use funeral software, you can distinguish your funeral home from others by transforming the service into a touching and personal event. With 24-hour technical assistance and online tutorials, even the most technologically-intimidated funeral professional can create professional items that are sure to impress your client families. Plus, you’re never on your own as there are numerous marketing tools available to help you promote these products to your clients. Furthermore, the integration of various technologies, such as combining a Tribute Video with a funeral webcast will elevate your reputation as a provider of premier services.


With the availability of professional funeral software that you install on your funeral home’s computer, you can produce hundreds of pieces of unique funeral stationery and other keepsakes in-house with your own printers. It’s never been easier to offer customized, professional funeral products that will make a funeral service truly memorable.
