ASD Wants to Send You A FREE ASD Mobile Powerbank!
Has your cell phone battery ever died while you were away from your charger or an outlet? ASD wants to give you a FREE ASD Mobile Powerbank to give you the freedom to charge up your smartphone when you’re on the go. For the next 3 weeks, anytime you refer another funeral home who is not using our service, we’ll send both you and the other director a FREE backup battery charger after they make contact with ASD. It’s that simple! (This special offer is valid for the first 50 referrals we receive.)
We appreciate the loyalty of our clients and this is one way we wanted to show our appreciation for your support. To learn more, contact us at 800-868-9950.
ASD’S APP SPOTLIGHT OF THE MONTH: iCamViewer
For funeral directors concerned about security risks in their building, the iCamViewer app for iPhone and Android can provide a great deal of peace of mind. The app can be synced to the funeral home’s CCTV cameras and Network IP cameras, allowing directors to view surveillance video from their smartphone 24/7. This allows funeral home owners to maintain complete oversight of their business without sacrificing personal convenience.
ASD Raises $1,000 for the For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation
ASD employees have just reached our goal of exercising for 1,000 hours on the Treadmill and Recumbent bike stations. As part of ASD’s “Exercise for a Cause” program, $1000 will be donated to the organization For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation which provides unforgettable vacations to cancer patients and their loved ones. ASD designed this unique workplace perk to help our employees stay active at work. The Treadmill and Recumbent Bike stations allow Call Specialists to move at a controlled rate while simultaneously answering calls. Many doctors have found that sitting for hours during the day can lead to stiff and dehydrated muscles making injuries and fractures more common. By staying active and moving around during their scheduled shifts, employees are less likely to hurt themselves due to idleness. Additionally, every mile walked or biked on ASD’s exercise station contributes towards an important cause. When a total of 1,000 hours have been logged on ASD’s recumbent bike or treadmill, ASD will donate $1,000 to a charitable organization. This extra incentive allows employees to work together toward a common, greater good.

Every week, ASD will be sharing #FuneralDirectorFacts that most people don’t know to help educate others about dedication of funeral professionals.
