The National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) and official partner Appitized are working together to create apps for the funeral profession.
The app-developing company has already released more 50 funeral industry apps in conjunction with the NAFD, which typically feature to-do lists, a help and advice page, an obituary and map and directions to the funeral home.
Many funeral professionals are adopting this trend as a convenient and efficient way to plan a funeral directly with the assistance of their mobile device.
Andrew Meadwell, head of business development at Appitized, said: “Having worked in the funeral sector for many years, I believe the adoption of mobile to be one of the biggest steps forward the industry has made.
“Mobile needs to be a key part of the marketing mix for businesses today and Appitized are proud to be preferred suppliers of NAFD members.”
