Smart Cemetery © is a completely new digital concept by Absentus Oy, which covers the entire cemetery ecosystem. Product development of Smart Cemetery © began in 2016. Smart Cemetery is a digital platform based on open interfaces that genuinely scales to the needs of different operators. The project received an innovation commercialisation grant from the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centre) and Tempo funding from Tekes (now Business Finland) for international growth.
Funerals involve a number of actors, logistics, regulations, contracts, communications and services, which cannot yet be digitally managed from a single place. However, digitalisation is also changing practices in traditional sectors, by accelerating and streamlining processes and communications. In the future, consumers will demand features like these from actors in the funeral industry. Our digital platform enables the more efficient use of resources, more flexible communication between parties, the modelling of future cemetery development, and the development of new services for the needs of consumers and professionals.
The Smart Cemetery project is in the pilot phase. Contact us for further information on the project, or if you would like to participate in the pilot!
