For Immediate Release: November 8, 2013
Brookfield, Wis. – The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) presented funeralOne with the 2013 NFDA Innovation Award during the association's International Convention & Expo, which took place October 20-23 in Austin, Texas. The company was recognized for its f1Connect Mobile Websites.
Established in 2009, the NFDA Innovation Award recognizes and promotes creativity, innovation and excellence among funeral service suppliers and vendors.
When funeralOne set out to create mobile phone-friendly funeral home websites, they didn't simply adapt their existing website templates for smartphones. Instead, they started from scratch and developed f1Connect Mobile Websites to meet the informational needs of consumers who visit funeral home websites on their mobile phones, which are distinct from those who seek information using a desktop computer.
Earlier this year, funeral service vendors and suppliers had an opportunity to submit a product or service that became commercially available after January 1, 2012, for consideration in the 2013 NFDA Innovation Award competition. A distinguished panel of funeral directors evaluated the 17 entries and selected five finalists. The other finalists for the NFDA Innovation Award were: The Dodge Company's Capture Bead Keepsakes, DoricLink™ by Doric Products Inc., LifeArt International's Online Casket Designer and Sculpted In Serenity's 3D Laser Sculpted Memorial Portraits.
