When a funeral director contacts ASD for the first time to learn about our service, they usually describe an ongoing communication problem at their funeral home. While explaining what they would need from an answering service, their responses may vary significantly. No matter the size, location or specific needs the funeral home, most are surprised to learn about the solutions ASD can provide. With over 40 years of experience creating customizable options for funeral professionals, our clients have many answers for why they have choose to work with ASD.

Here are 10 different reasons why ASD clients say they trust us to answer their sensitive calls:

1) “ ASD has trained their employees to operate with compassion and respect and to talk to families in a way that gives them peace and comfort. We can log in and hear a recording of all of our calls and their operators speak to callers just as we would.”
-Roman Coale, Framptom Funeral Home in Federalsburg, MD. (ASD Client since 1999)

2) “We have used four other answering services during the past 10 years and none have provided the prompt (generally by 2nd ring) answering that is provided by ASD. We truly ‘tried the rest and now have the best’.”
-Mark Lange, Henry Lange Memorial Funeral Homes in Cuba and Lewistown, IL. (ASD client since 1997)

3) “ASD has allowed me a life. The service lets me maintain my finger on the pulse of the operation, and at the same time enjoy life with my family. I don’t have to sit by the phone all the time anymore. Everything can be done now with the touch of a finger.”
-Thomas Gale, Currie Funeral Home in Kilmarnock, VA. (ASD Client since 1998)

4) “ASD is always looking for ways to improve their service for funeral professionals with technology. Over the years, ASD has added features like the online service, the text-messaging, and the ASD Mobile application that have been incredibly helpful.”
-Hank Griffith, Griffith Funeral Home in Norwood, PA. (ASD client since 1972)

-William Skidd, Collins Funeral Home in Norwalk, CT. (ASD Client since 2006)

6) “ASD is the most dependable and caring answering service in the industry. I received several compliments on how understanding and courteous my ‘staff’ is, little do they know the operators at ASD are my staff!”

-Wayne Bright, Wilson Funeral Home in Tampa, FL. (ASD client since 2006)

-Eric Pasillas, All California Cremation in Palm Springs, CA. (ASD Client since 1999)
