Integrated Platform Simplifies Print Obituary Placement for Tributes.com Funeral Home Partners

Evanston, IL – Oct. 20, 2016 – Legacy.com, the undisputed leader in the digital obituary and memorialization space, today announced a partnership with AdPerfect, the most trusted provider of self-service advertising solutions, that streamlines the placing of print obituaries in newspapers for funeral directors. The partnership integrates AdPerfect’s technology platform with Legacy.com’s Tributes platform and allows funeral homes to leverage the content they input into their online memorials to purchase corresponding print placements in one or more newspapers across the U.S. and Canada with as little as a single click. The integrated platform includes support for over 6,000 newspapers in North America.

"We’re excited to partner with AdPerfect and believe that this integration will benefit all of our channel partners. We want to simplify and streamline the process of placing an obituary with the newspaper and reduce redundancy so our funeral home partners can spend more time with the families in their care," says Elaine Haney, Chief Operating Officer at Legacy.com.

Jim McIntosh, Executive Chairman of AdPerfect states, "Our companies have similar goals – to share life stories and communicate service information via print and online obituaries. Our technology simplifies the process of placing a print obituary in one or many newspapers and is a perfect fit for Legacy.com’s newspaper and funeral home partners."

The integration will be made available to Tributes.com funeral home partners at no additional charge in January 2017. To see the integration at NFDA, visit the Legacy.com booth (No. 4338), just inside the entrance of the expo hall. To learn more, contact media@legacy.com.
