eziFunerals is calling on independent funeral directors to join their collaboration platform and form a co-operative alliance that will challenge the funeral industry.
Founder and Owner of eziFunerals, Peter Erceg, said the funeral industry is too fragmented with more than eight different national and state associations in competition with each other. ‘Most of the independents are not members of any association’, he said.
With a strong industry background, eziFunerals pitch to independent funeral directors is that we need to join together to form a strong alliance.
Since launching in 2017, eziFunerals continues to grow from strength to strength with more independent funeral directors signing up with Australia’s #1 funeral planning platform.
‘eziFunerals has been developed by independent funeral directors for independent funeral directors’. Unlike other funeral comparison sites, we don’t charge commissions and funeral brands owned by the ASX listed companies, are not permitted to use our platform’, he says.
‘We believe that independent funeral directors need a strong and independent voice to represent the interests of both our member funeral directors and Australian families.
‘Our member funeral directors have made it very clear to us that they require a platform that provides a level playing field in order to compete with the big funeral chains, said Erceg.
In addition to lead generation and growth in market share, we are negotiating deals with some of the best providers Australia-wide to enable our members to:
- get a better deal.
- benefit from economies of scale.
- provide competitive pricing.
- and lower operational costs.
Peter Erceg said ‘unless independent funeral directors can operate as a co-operative funeral alliance, they will continue to lose market share to the big funeral chains and new direct cremation players in the marketplace. This is not in the interests of family owned funeral homes or consumers.’
eziFunerals supports individuals and families cope with end of life decisions, death and funerals. We are an independent, Australian-owned and operated company, and are not a subsidiary of any other corporation. We are not part of any other funeral company.
