Integrate the smart trip tool into the obituary to make things easier for the family
Everyone that wants to come to the service has all the information at their fingertips to celebrate the life with friends, family and colleagues.
TripProximity’s smart trip tool let’s SCI and Dignity Memorial fulfill that dream. And best yet, it can be implemented into your new site in hours, not days, weeks or months and at no cost to you or your funeral home partners.
The loss of a loved one is often prompts an overnight stay. For the first time, you can help those coming to celebrate their life to easily answer the question: “Where should I stay?”
With TripProximity, without any incremental cost, Dignity Memorial funeral home sites become a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”
Make life easier for the family
After a loss, the family phone rings non-stop. Most of those calls are to ask for the logistics surrounding the service. By integrating the TripProximity widget into the obituary, the funeral home director can pass off the page location to the family at the initial meeting with them. Then when people call, they can simply share the page location by phone or they can share it via text or on social media.
You make life easier for the family during a difficult time and your team saves time answering “where should I stay?”
Make your map smarter
The TripProximity widget can replace your existing map tool or static driving directions. Those coming to the funeral can book hotel, flight or get dynamic driving directions to the service location. Those coming do not have to remember your address. The widget pre-populates your location automatically.
Make Giving Back Easy
With TripProximity, every trip can matter to the charities you support. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings made on your site are given to your charity of choice annually.
Site placement is easy.
If a service time has been set, we recommend adding an Attend the Service button, which then displays the Smart Trip tool for the service. On the Services page, we recommend changing the Google Map link under Directions to read “Plan your Visit”. Each of the links will pull up a customized page with the name and photo of the deceased and then the venue name and date/time of the particular service element selected.
Good things are in store.
It just takes minutes to configure the dynamic event widget to accept variable fields, such as the deceased’s name, photo and the location for each of the types of service, along with the date of the service.
