Media, PA (March 25, 2011)?In today?s economic climate, it is not uncommon for families to contact several funeral homes looking for price and other relevant information before choosing a provider that best suits their needs. The loss of a funeral service opportunity has a negative effect on all funeral homes? bottom line. ASD – Answering Service for Directors has responded to this ?price shopping? phenomenon with a customizable ?patching? option to ensure that funeral home clients never miss an opportunity to work with a family.

Family members frequently contact several funeral homes in search of one that meets their financial, religious and personal needs. Most do not have time to wait for answers to their pressing questions. Patching through these urgent calls gives family members peace of mind knowing they will be able to speak to a funeral director.

ASD?s ?patching? feature is completely customizable, allowing funeral homes to decide which calls are to be ?patched? through to them. Based on the criteria selected, ASD will patch the call directly through to the funeral home or appropriate cell phone. ?ASD is always working to increase our clients? ability to make the most of their business opportunities. Patching lets us protect these opportunities while meeting the needs of callers who want answers quickly at a stressful, difficult time?, says Kevin Czachor, ASD Vice President and Family Member Owner. ?ASD will continue to expand our portfolio of features to embrace emerging technology and the needs of our funeral clients.?

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
