With eFuneral, funeral planners can make quick, informed decisions that ensure their loved ones get the care they deserve.
Cleveland, Ohio-based eFuneral (www.efuneral.com), a comprehensive online end-of-life planning resource, has developed a website that puts families in control of the funeral planning process. The technology company, co-founded by Mike Belsito and Bryan Chaikin, is the only online platform that enables individuals in need of funeral services – both burial and cremation – to quickly find and compare local funeral homes that meet their requirements. The service is free for individuals to use, and within minutes individuals can choose the local funeral home that best meets their needs.
“Relationships play an important role in the funeral planning process. But for those families who don’t have a direct connection to a specific funeral home, finding the right funeral home can be difficult,” says Mike Belsito, Co-founder of eFuneral. “We want to make it easier for those individuals to connect with the funeral home that best meets their needs.”
Individuals simply submit their burial or cremation service requests, and then local funeral providers quickly and personally respond with their service prices and options. Very quickly, individuals are able to compare funeral home prices along with ratings and reviews verified by eFuneral.
eFuneral is not only a great resource for individuals making funeral preparations – it’s also helpful to funeral directors, who often have a difficult time reaching undecided individuals and differentiating their funeral homes from their neighbors. “With funeral home marketing costs averaging more than $400 per service performed, we hope to help funeral directors more effectively and efficiently connect with individuals in need of burial or cremation services,” explains Belsito.
eFuneral is launching its website, eFuneral.com for individuals and funeral homes in the Cleveland, Akron, and Canton areas. The company has plans to expand to other cities in the near future.
