At the recent Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Convention, one of ASD’s longtime clients approached me to say he’d enjoyed a post he read on ASD’s blog. He then said that he wished he had more time in his day to read all of the great funera content available online, but he was normally in a rush when using the computer because of the hectic nature of his work. This is a dilemma many funeral directors understand. There is a wealth of insightful information for funeral professionals online, but directors have very limited time to explore it all.
At ASD, we are always looking for ways to help funeral directors with our custom-built technology. While our Supervisors are available 24/7 to provide assistance, we know there are times when it may not be convenient for you to call us. For this reason, we have developed tutorial videos for our clients to demonstrate how to utilize all of the features available through ASD Mobile and our website. These short tutorials have been helpful learning tools for many of our clients. To access our tutorials, login to myASD.com and click on the Tutorial Videos link at the bottom of the Options tool bar. We will be adding more tutorial videos to this page in the future.
For funeral professionals who have considered taking advantage of our Free Trial offer but just haven’t had time to chat with us, we have created videos to help you get to know our service. Whether you are curious about the solutions we offer, how our technology works or what our facility looks like, you will find the answer in one of our videos below.

Hear From Your Peers
ASD recently co-hosted a podcast series with funeral writer and media consultant, Nancy Burban, and sixth generation funeral director and popular blogger, Caleb Wilde. The podcast is part of a new series called Funeral Pro Chat which will feature directors and experts discussing the latest funeral trends, news and customs. Caleb sat down with Kevin and Nancy share his thoughts and stories about the changing face of funeral service, common pressures directors face, the healing power of writing and the importance of trust when choosing funeral vendors. During the interview, Caleb explained why his family’s funeral home uses ASD and how our company has “created a system funeral directors can trust.” Click above to hear the first Funeral Pro Chat podcast interview.
