A retail organization that provides funeral services needed a better way to represent its services to potential customers across North America. After making several acquisitions, the company greatly expanded its capabilities to not only offer traditional services, but also provide tasteful finishing touches.
Unfortunately, not all customers were offered the wide variety of options available. At many locations, funeral directors verbally explained funeral packages to their customers.
In an effort to stay as tactful as possible during these delicate conversations, many employees didn’t tell customers about the additional services, such as a dove release and jewelry keepsakes.
The organization needed a way to represent its many capabilities to potential customers without its funeral directors coming across as being too pushy during difficult moments.
Leveraging modern technology
The answer to this unique conundrum? Implement a modern, technology-driven solution to the sales process by upgrading the arrangement rooms. These rooms are private spaces the customer and funeral director use to plan the details of a funeral.
Insight recommended outfitting the arrangement rooms with a large display and an easy-to-use software program. This would allow employees to walk customers through funeral planning while also showing that location’s available services.
