Tribute Technology, the leading provider of funeral management and website services, with cutting-edge personalization and technology solutions used by more than 70% of the funeral home businesses in the United States, has acquired AdPerfect, one of the leading obituary platforms used by media companies across North America.
The acquisition will deliver online and self-serve obituaries at no cost to local publishers, while also providing publishers of all sizes and platforms with significant revenue-driving products, such as the Tribute Store.
“We’ve had unprecedented growth in the funeral home technology space over the last several years, so acquiring a company with AdPerfect’s reputation in the media industry is a natural addition to our mission -- providing unparalleled service and technology to funeral homes and families in the communities we serve,” said Matt Frazer, CEO, Tribute Technology.
Jim McIntosh, Executive Chairman of AdPerfect, said, “We’re ecstatic to be joining the Tribute Technology team, as the devotion and admiration they enjoy from funeral home directors across the country demonstrates how committed they are to their customers. Being able to provide funeral homes and local media outlets with a fully integrated platform will mean better service for families and communities.”
A partner of the Local Media Consortium, a strategic alliance of leading local media companies, AdPerfect provides LMC members with AdPerfect Obituaries, a platform for hosting online obituaries and self-serve obituary placement for funeral homes and private party customers.
“We are excited about the merging of AdPerfect and Tribute Technology, which will bring greater cost benefits to our local media members,” said Fran Wills, CEO of the LMC. “Helping local journalism thrive in a changing media environment is our goal, and this acquisition will help local media increase their revenues, lower their costs and incorporate both print and online into one platform with one vendor.”
