Nine months ago, Everdays launched the first and only turnkey service designed to replace newspaper obituaries. Now, more than 1,000 funeral homes are actively using the company’s fully digital, cloud-based platform to create memorial announcements as a complimentary service for their client families. Those families then easily and securely broadcast the announcements to their community using the free Everdays mobile app.
“We couldn’t be happier with the feedback we’ve received from funeral directors and client families,” said Mark Alhermizi, founder and CEO of Everdays. “On one hand, the growth we’ve seen is staggering. But really, it reflects the overwhelming need for a modern update to the unnecessary expense of buying newspaper obituaries. Everdays provides that alternative, and it does all this for free — not just for funeral homes, but for their families as well.”
Everdays leverages the power of mobile technology to send important updates to a family’s contacts and ensure the news of a passing goes viral. And because each announcement carries a funeral home’s information and direct link back to their website, each share leads to greater brand awareness, increased web traffic, and improved event attendance. Furthermore, Everdays has been instrumental in reinforcing the client-director relationship.
“By bringing more people into our network of fourteen homes, Everdays has elevated the value of our funeral service to our current and prospective clients,” said Randy Schoedinger, CEO of Schoedinger Funeral & Cremation Services. “Every one of our forty-two staff members has been trained to use Everdays for their client families, and we’ve heard nothing but good things from our clients about their experience using Everdays.”
At the core of Everdays is the Partner Dashboard, a robust platform that gives funeral directors the power to create, manage, and update announcements on behalf of their client families. According to Antonio Green, president and CEO of James H. Cole Home for Funerals, “Everdays is clean, simple, and easy to navigate. It only takes a few minutes to create an announcement on the Partner Dashboard, and we do it for every family on every case.”
By providing funeral homes with a smarter model for building their business and fostering better relationships with their clients, Everdays is poised to become the new standard for how the world communicates around death. “No other notification method provides peace of mind to homes and their families,” said Alhermizi. “But we’re also the only company creating a natural space for the profession to connect with a larger community receptive to their message — and I believe that this is why you will see Everdays continue to grow.”
