FrontRunner Professional Named NFDA Innovation Award Finalist for the Third Consecutive Year
FrontRunner Professional is proud to again be named an Innovation Award finalist from the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) for the third year in a row.
After being named the Innovator of the Year in 2014 for their intuitive Total Business Solution, FrontRunner accelerated their commitment to being the leader in technology solutions for the funeral profession. With more technology providers than ever before, FrontRunner couldn’t be more proud to receive such distinguished recognition in the funeral profession.
“Our first time receiving the Innovation Award was for a product that gives funeral homes a completely integrated, all-encompassing software with one point of data entry to help them run more efficiently, reduce the number of software vendors needed, and eliminate unnecessary expenses and pressure on their bottom line” says Ashley Montroy, President at FrontRunner Professional.
The solution FrontRunner has been nominated for this year is an industry first. MemorialFX Live integrates real time condolence messages and so much more from the deceased’s memorial tribute page right into the DVD presentation, taking integration to a whole new level, saving the funeral director time and sign off on the memorial video, and giving them the best in DVD generation capabilities.
Today, FrontRunner’s innovation continues not only with the recent nomination but also with the new direction of their company. “The new Exclusive Client Program was built for firms that no longer want to work with a website and technology company that sells everyone, competitors or not, the same product” says Montroy. “Progressive firms need exclusive tools, services, and strategies to give them true differentiation within their communities; not wake up to find the guy up the street has the same thing. This new path continues to position us as the FrontRunner in innovation, no pun intended, and the future for not only us, but our clients is very exciting” adds Montroy.
It is clear that companies like FrontRunner are going to help shape the future of how funeral professionals tackle the real issues facing them and help provide a clear path to the continued success and respect of our great profession.
With over two decades as a licensed funeral director, FrontRunner Founder Kevin Montroy intimately understood the day-to-day challenges of owning and operating a funeral home. This experience, coupled with a keen insightfulness to listen and respond to client’s needs and suggestions, has allowed the company to continue to rise to these accolades. “We strive to create technology that not only solves a problem for funeral directors, but creates unique experiences for families. We believe that if we create technology that attracts the interest of consumers, inherently it will attract new families to those firms that offer it.” concludes Montroy.
