The Funeral Concierge Services offering will include a comprehensive suite of integrated services featuring Solutionz Technology’s travel widget for visiting families and guests, allowing the traveler to find and reserve the hotel of their choice near the event, easing the logistics in their moment of grief.


Additional features will be rolled out over the coming weeks, including an RSVP service to help funeral homes better manage events and the ability for friends and families to purchase flowers.  Also in a future release, Frontrunner funeral homes will be given the option of identifying the hotel facilities they recommend for visitors.

FrontRunner CEO and Founder Kevin Montroy cites, “The offering will ultimately encompass all the service and convenience Funeral homes can provide.  No one needs to be managing tons of logistics to attend a funeral or service.  We want to make it easy by providing trip planning like, driving and map directions directly to the funeral home, church, cemetery and reception locations.  Our product roadmap for Funeral Concierge Services also includes integrated catering services, local restaurant information and reservations, car washes, law firm resources along with condolence messaging services, Memorial Donation fulfilments to name a few.   Frontrunner is committed to providing the best end-to-end Funeral Home platform and services so they in turn can take great care of their customers.”

This is just one more piece of the matrix we have built to help drive more families and traffic to our client’s funeral homes.” says Montroy.

Chicke Fitzgerald founder and CEO of Solutionz Technologies states: “We have been providing customer-centric solutions to the travel industry for nearly 20 years.  With the shift in power on the Internet moving to the consumer, we are putting 100% of our focus on developing technologies that ease trip planning around life events.  We know from experience that approximately 10% of all funeral home attendees come from over 50 miles away and of those, 89% of travel to funerals and memorial services by car.  Finding a hotel nearby the service is a critical part of the planning process and most current travel sites focus on hotels near airports and city centers, versus where the traveler is really going.”
