As one of two independent family-owned funeral homes in East Boston, the Ruggiero Family Memorial Home has been keeping up with the changing times and technology.
The Ruggiero Family recently introduced a new option to help bereaved families make funeral planning a whole lot easier–an online funeral planning and collaboration center.
To make the funeral planning process as simple as possible, the Funeral Home has partnered with Passare, Inc., a software company that is helping to improve the funeral planning experience. Families are now able to log on and start making funeral arrangements from anywhere, at any time, using any Internet-connected device.
According to owner Joseph Ruggiero, the Collaboration Center allows families to work together in an online, interactive environment. Families can select basic service preferences, submit necessary information, and work on the obituary. The family also can receive important updates in real time from the funeral home.
“The service is especially helpful when family members want to stay up-to-date and connected while traveling in from out of town,” said Ruggiero. “And families who are caring for a loved one during their final days can stay by the bedside while we work together to plan a personalized tribute.”
This new service is offered to families free of charge and is available immediately.
The Ruggiero Family Memorial home was founded in 1999 by Ruggiero and has remained a family owned and operated funeral home for close to two decades.
“When we say “personal service at a personal time” it is much more than just a motto or company slogan but rather it is our simple philosophy in everything we do, and our absolute promise from our family,” said Ruggiero.
The Ruggiero Family has a long and respected history in providing nothing less than the very best, regardless of their clients’ budget or needs.
“In most cases he will handle all of the arrangements for you personally,” said Ruggiero. “The caring and experienced professionals at Ruggiero Family Memorial Home are here to support you through this difficult time. We offer a range of personalized services to suit your family’s wishes and requirements. You can count on us to help you plan a personal, lasting tribute to your loved one. And we’ll carefully guide you through the many decisions that must be made during this challenging time.”
