eziFunerals, Australia’s leading online funeral platform, is piloting a new “DIY” online Death and Funeral Notice service that will help clients and funeral directors to share details about a death and funerals.
The new online service, powered by Death & Funerals will allow families and funeral directors to easily create a personal and fitting Death and Funeral Notice and share the details of when and where a funeral is taking place.
Clients will be able to personalise their Funeral Notice by adding photographs of their loved ones as well as a short obituary and the service will be a valuable addition to eziFunerals service.
eziFunerals clients will be able to share the Funeral Notice via email and social media. Family and friends will be able to add their condolences and tributes and (importantly in these current COVID times) will see if any of the funeral arrangements change.
Peter Erceg, Owner and Founder of eziFunerals, said:
“As newspaper readership declines the traditional death and funeral notice is becoming less effective at letting people know that someone has died and informing them about a funeral. At the same time more and more people are turning to the internet for help and information when someone dies.
“Our new partnership with Death & Funerals will make this process simpler, easier to use, and better value for money. It marks an important step change in improving our client experience and reflects our view that we must continually evolve to meet customer needs. This is especially important given that the internet and social media play such a central role in everyday consumer’s lives.
“eziFunerals will now allow customers to access funeral services online, including the choices and pricing options available, as well as engage directly with their local funeral director. We see this as another step in raising quality and standards and modernising services within the industry.”
Terry Laidler from Deaths & Funerals said:
"We see eziFunerals as a natural fit for our national online death and funeral notice service - we both aim to focus on best value for our clients, easy access in the digital age, and supporting them practically at a difficult time."
eziFunerals digital strategy aims to support and assist clients as the internet becomes increasingly influential in the funeral industry. The strategy will include the access to online death and funeral notices for each of eziFunerals member funeral directors. Each member will be able to display local notices and services for family and friends.
