The major funeral industry news from 2015 was about consolidation and strategic alliances. Today CareCap and At Need Credit announced their new Simple Funeral Payment Plan which is a funeral payment plan offering similar to what is found in the dental and veterinary industries. In addition, the new Simple Funeral Payment Plan provides a solution for past due collection and accounts receivable recovery for funeral homes.
Growth and viability for success in the funeral industry is dependent on new ideas, products and services as well as collaborative efforts to serve the changing funeral consumer. The new partnership is a model for companies and funeral service providers working together to offer solutions for funeral consumer families.
Noted in the Press Release today, the issue of Americans financially struggling having limited access to funds for an emergency is once again breached. This is not an issue that is going away for funeral directors, in fact it’s expanding. At Need Credit provides training for funeral homes on how to address payment in arrangement sessions and how to become a $0.00 accounts receivable firm.
