Business Description

Today funeral business that serve the public do not know who most of their patrons are, and have difficulty connecting with them. This is a missed opportunity to build a deeper relationship, assess how you can help at the time of need and beyond, and use customer experience insights to create a better service. Tribute Tree helps solve these problems. Tribute Tree is the only web platform that reaches out to friends and family during funeral pre-planning, and at the time of their loss. This results in greater web traffic, more connections to those you serve, and increased revenue.
