ASD is pleased to share this Guest Blog Post from Kim Sykes of CRäKN. In this post, Kim explains how Cloud technology works, the impact it has had on business, and different reasons why directors may or may not want to adopt cloud-based solutions at their funeral home. For funeral professionals who are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with cloud technology, this guest blog post does an excellent job at weighing the pros and cons to help funeral directors make an informed decision.
At ASD, we see firsthand the dedication and commitment that funeral professionals exhibit 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For this reason, we are passionate about providing directors with seamless and unsurpassed protection for their sensitive calls, especially during holidays.

Last week, we had the opportunity to attend the Cremation Association of North America’s (CANA) 98th Annual Convention in Chicago. CANA’s convention was very unique because this conference offered an opportunity to hear session speakers in the same room as the convention exhibits. This allowed us to sit in on CANA’s full line up of impressive experts who weighed in on many topics while keeping a strong focus on the effect cremation has had on the funeral profession. If you could not attend the conference, but want to benefit from the wealth of information shared, we have you covered!

Being a funeral professional can be a very demanding job and athletics provides a healthy release and outlet. We were highly impressed by the range of different athletic activities that funeral professionals engage in. Many of the directors drew a direct correlation between their career as a funeral professional and their love for a particular sport or athletic pursuit. But for these directors, it is not just about being a participant. Many have won competitions or received acclaim because they take that same discipline they have honed as a funeral director and apply it to their athletic goals. This list proves that when funeral professionals devote themselves to something, they devote themselves 100%.
