Introducing ASD Mobile: A Powerful New iPhone App for Funeral Homes
Dec 13, 2011
ASD is excited to bring your funeral home a sophisticated iPhone application to help you conduct more business on-the-go. The app was created as a mobilized one-stop solution for clients to manage their ASD account. With ASD Mobile, you can now use your iPhone to access messages, update service/obituary information, change your on-call status and more, all with the touch of a button!
At the recent NFDA/CANA convention in Chicago, many of you gathered at ASD's booth to see a live demonstration of the iPhone application. A lot of clients were excited about the convenience and speed that the app would bring to their funeral home's daily operations. After several months of careful planning and testing, ASD Mobile went live on Monday, December 12th. You can now download the app at no cost on Apple's iPhone app store.
The versatile application allows you to hear and read all aspects of every call handled by ASD and respond to messages with your iPhone to reduce the funeral home's billable calls. Clients with more than one account have the ability to seamlessly manage multiple accounts with ease. ASD Mobile streamlines funeral home operations by providing you with one-click access to update service/obituary information, change your on-call details and retrieve the contact information of other employees.
Within 24 hours of the application's launch, it was reviewed by a funeral professional on Apple's online app store: “In a matter of two minutes I was able to download and log in to this awesome app. ASD Mobile is a very quick, simple way to manage everything that our on-call attendants would ever need. From changing on call order to managing obituaries to checking incoming calls, this app even offers caller ID. It's a real light app that doesn't take up a whole lot of phone memory. It doesn't make the phone drag. I've tried it on a both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3 and it works great across the board. This is a great addition to ASD's already easy-to-use web interface. It deserves 10 stars.”
The 24/7 demands of the funeral profession require that directors embrace the latest technology and mobile tools to run their businesses efficiently. ASD's iPhone App joins the company's other cutting-edge features, including Smart Text, First Call Connect®, First Call Alert® and Email Messaging. These advanced technical options were designed with the lifestyle of the 21st century funeral professional in mind and help directors that regularly use web-capable phones to maintain better control over their business.
According to Family Member Owner Kevin Czachor, “We built everything from the ground up with perfection as our goal. The iPhone application is just another example ASD's commitment to excellence that our clients have come to expect.”
By creating this virtual hub, ASD has made it simpler than ever for funeral professionals to manage their business at any hour of day or night. ASD anticipates an Android application will be released in the coming months.
