Our bilingual team can provide 24/7 translation services for funeral homes that need to communicate with Spanish-speaking families. From providing pricing information to family members, to explaining America’s foreign transport requirements to directors in other countries, ASD’s bilingual team can help bridge the communication gap so that directors are better able to serve Spanish families.
ASD is pleased to announce that for the third time in five years, our company has been chosen as a finalist for the NFDA Innovation Award. To receive this year’s nomination is especially meaningful for us here at ASD because we were recognized for our Suicide Telephone Operator Patch System (STOP), a feature that was invented by ASD solely to help those in crisis.
Recently, we have seen funeral directors speaking out about the opioid epidemic with raw honesty and compassion. From creating public awareness campaigns with stirring advertisements to speaking directly to recovering addicts, funeral directors are not standing on the sidelines when it comes to this issue. Rather, they are in the combat zone, trying to do everything they can to get their message out.

ASD is pleased to share our new recruitment video that highlights many of the reasons our employees find working here rewarding. Walking in to ASD’s Operations Center, it is obvious that our company is much more than a Call Center. We are truly a family. As this video explains, the strong rapport and enduring friendships between our employees is supported by ASD’s positive workplace culture.

We hope that you enjoy a relaxing and festive 4th of July holiday! Every year, this date reminds us to pause and appreciate the freedoms we are so fortunate to have. At ASD, we believe that freedom comes in many forms. We know that many funeral directors spend a great deal of time shackled to a phone. Our mission is to provide solutions that liberate our clients to spend more time doing the things they love.
