Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
It was announced today that Denver-based Une Belle Vie Memorial Urns will partner with Seattle-based iMortuary, one of the most visited online funeral home directories, to offer a more seamless funeral planning process for online consumers.
The two companies operate on separate websites; Une Belle Vie offering traditional, artistic and custom cremation urns and iMortuary providing a funeral home and cemetery directory of thousands of locations throughout the United States. The iMortuary site already offers reference resources, local funeral planning adviser connections, and the option to send flowers throughout the United States. The addition of the Une Belle Vie affiliation will allow consumers to use the site for shopping for hundreds of urns as well.
“Navigating through funeral planning is not easy; it’s an expensive process and obviously emotional. When you’re dealing with the passing of a loved one, all the details can really add to the stress of the situation,” explained Melody Jamali, president of Une Belle Vie. “This partnership creates one place to take care of all the different aspects of the funeral process – from flowers, to urns, to locating a funeral homes or crematorium.”
The partnership between iMortuary and Une Belle Vie is a strategic plan for both companies to streamline the funeral planning process and offer consumers online options.
“The way that consumers approach funeral planning has fundamentally shifted to include the Internet. We strive to create an information-rich experience with access to the essential funeral resources consumers need. Adding the option to select and purchase an urn is an extension of this strategy,” said Minda Brusse, co-owner of iMortuary.
