3 Reasons to Look Forward to the NFDA Convention
Sep 21, 2012
Every year, we look forward to the NFDA's Convention & Expo and the opportunity to meet so many of our clients in one setting. However, this year we are more excited than ever before.
Here are 3 reasons why:
1) Fantastic Booth Giveaways
We value the loyalty of our clients and are grateful for the many funeral professionals that have recommended our service to their colleagues. To show our appreciation, ASD is offering an exclusive referral bonus at the NFDA 2012 convention. Bring a funeral director who is not using ASD to our booth and if he or she signs up at the show, you and the other director will both win a FREE 40 inch LCD display TV. Additionally, we will be raffling off flat screen TVs and bamboo keyboards on the last day of the show. Stop by Booth #3137 to find out how to enter.
2) LIVE demos of our Mobile apps
Last year in Chicago, many clients inquired about when we would have a mobile application available. At the time, we were putting the final touches on ASD Mobile for the iPhone and were thinking ahead about duplicating its functionality for the Android platform. Now, a year later we are pleased to be able to demo both of our apps for directors attending the 2012 NFDA convention. Our iPhone app has been downloaded by over 3,000 funeral professionals and we are just finishing the beta testing stage of our Android app. We expect to officially release ASD Mobile for Android to the Google Play Store a week before the NFDA convention, giving our clients the opportunity to preview the app before seeing our LIVE demonstration in Charlotte. If you have any questions or suggestions for ASD Mobile, be sure to stop our booth. ASD Vice President Marty Czachor, who designed our mobile applications, will be available at the booth to explain specific app features.
3) 2012 NFDA Innovation Award
ASD has always placed a strong emphasis on innovation and creativity by working to redefine the traditional role of an answering service. We are honored that the NFDA judging panel recognized the value that our Smart Phone application, ASD Mobile, can deliver to the funeral service community. As one of five companies selected for the 2012 Innovation Award , ASD is looking forward to the Opening General Session on Monday, October 8th when the official winner will be announced. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our clients and friends who voted for ASD Mobile to win the 2012 Innovation Award . From posting a positive review on iTunes to leaving a wonderful comment on our Facebook page, we truly could not have spread the word without your help. Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone in Charlotte!
