Welcome to our first blog on digital mapping as part of your cemetery software solution.
With the contemporary cemetery, mapping forms an integral part of both the cemetery operations and customer service delivery.
Cemetery mapping is used to optimize the utilization of space, manage inventory, streamline ground works and to provide easy cemetery navigation.
There are numerous mapping solutions and features available to enable cost effective mapping capabilities from leading mapping services such as Google Maps and ESRI.
Digital mapping is changing the way cemeteries do business; with a never ending need to improve service delivery and to manage profits and costs, every instrument available to a cemetery should be embraced to achieve great results. Mapping is quickly becoming an expected requirement.
What you may not having considered is how mapping can help your cemetery or gardens do better business beyond providing a customer kiosk experience.
Planning the optimal layout of a cemetery will ensure that land is used effectively to provide as many resting and memorial spaces as possible. This assists in leveraging good revenues per area while also providing the much-needed space in an industry which is under continual pressure to have more available spaces.
Visibility of Inventory
Graphically view and manage your inventory across the entire cemetery or for selected areas. This allows you to provide your sales teams with the ability to view stock availability from their desks or while walking the cemetery and provide customers with a personalized showcase of your inventory to match their specific needs and requests.
Make your grounds teams more efficient using the cemetery maps by being able to find and identify locations quickly and accurately. Meaning you can also ensure that the space dimensions are available to the grounds teams so that they can plan the service without risk of a surprise at the time of excavating.
Also, easily identify flora growth, age and root movement to protect against damage to graves and cemetery infrastructure.
A digital mapping solution can help your cemetery or gardens do business more efficiently. Whether you have an existing mapping solution or are looking for a solution – the data behind digital mapping is for the most part the same; what varies is the interface and functionality provided. Mapping solutions can utilize Google Maps and ESRI technology providing comprehensive functionality for your business.
