FrontRunner Announces Kick-Off Date & Workshop Schedule for Brand New Technology Center

FrontRunner today announced the official kick-off date and complete workshop schedule for it’s new $1.6-million dollar Technology Center. The center represents Frontrunner’s ongoing commitment to set a higher standard, and provides all the tools and resources to help funeral professionals truly excel in today’s market.

Many progressive funeral professionals are realizing that their Technology Strategy is their new Business Strategy. The Technology Center will bring these funeral professionals together from all over Canada and the United States to take their technology and business to an entirely new level.

Regularly scheduled sessions will be held twice per month for FrontRunner clients, and those interested in learning more about FrontRunner technology. Attendees will learn how to unleash everything their technology solution offers and make it work as an efficient, profitable business growth tool. Sessions will include aggressive new Cremation Business Strategies and how, as a Pulse Business Division client, they can access our exclusive territory protected solutions and managed services programs for the ultimate success.


On top of the regular sessions, the Technology Center will hold quarterly two-day workshops on successful new and traditional marketing strategies as well as online marketing and diversification strategies. These are designed for any funeral professional interested in learning how to market their firms to grow their call volume and bottom line, what to watch out for in the online world, and how to position their firm to excel at serving the new future markets. No other technology company is doing more for the funeral profession or clients they serve.


“The Technology Center is a very strategic part of who FrontRunner has evolved to as a company today” says Ashley Montroy, Marketing Director of FrontRunner Professional.  “Funeral directors often do not get the technology training or education needed in their local markets to truly be able to compete and as a result they miss out on the opportunities that the proper use of technology and marketing can bring. As the technology leaders in this space for more than 20 years, opening the Technology Center to help funeral homes reach new levels, seemed like the perfect next step for FrontRunner and we cannot wait to be that partner for funeral professionals across North America.” adds Montroy.


The center is nestled in Kingston’s historic waterfront community making visits as memorable as they are educational. The adjoining Delta Hotel will act as FrontRunner’s corporate accommodations partner, making everything conveniently located. And, with Kingston’s downtown bustling with great theater, events, restaurants, bars, and nightspots, visitors will want to extend their stays. The center will even showcase the new Wyland TributeArt Gallery that will be open to visitors from around the world.


“The future will continue to bring new challenges to funeral professionals. With those challenges will come great opportunity for those who align themselves with a strategically focused technology partner that does more than just offer websites or management software. Today they need a strategic plan coupled with great technology to move past their competition and that’s what FrontRunner has become, especially with the new Technology Center” says Kevin Montroy, CEO/Founder of FrontRunner Professional.
