ASD Launches New Android Application

MEDIA, Pa. – Answering Service for Directors has announced the official release of its full-featured mobile application for Android phones and tablets, according to a news release.

This revolutionary app allows funeral professionals to manage every aspect of their ASD account. The app's intuitive interface, rapid push messaging and unrivaled functionality make “ASD Mobile for Android” the complete mobilized solution for funeral directors on-the-go.

ASD Mobile took home the 2012 Innovation Award at the NFDA convention in October. The company has now duplicated the functionality of their app for the Android platform with the help of over 200 beta testers. The feedback and suggestions received from the test group helped ASD's technical team enhance the app's performance and ensure that it was fully functional on all Android devices. Using the app, clients have one-touch access to hear and read all aspects of their message, with an option to share the data via email or text. Funeral directors can update service information, change on-call details, and provide feedback in seconds using “ASD Mobile for Android.”

Funeral director Bryan Chandler of Chandler Funeral Home in Caldwell, Ohio was one of the first to beta test the ASD Mobile for Android. “Just received the latest Beta Version of the ASD App for Android and wow has this made my life easier!” Bryan wrote on ASD's Facebook page. “I can't wait until the final release. I think everyone will be very satisfied.”

“ASD Mobile for Android” harnesses the power of push notification technology, allowing clients to customize how, when and why they are contacted for their messages. These rapid notifications make communication with ASD simple and seamless: new messages appear on the screen with incredible speed. For first calls, clients can be notified via push notification the moment an ASD call specialist begins to gather information.

“Rather than settling for a very generic app, we created our own custom interactive mobile solution ,” said ASD vice president and family member owner Marty Czachor, who designed the app with ASD's technical team. “ASD clients have come to expect a higher standard and our Android app is another example of the ways ASD has worked to improve our clients' lives with the most advanced technology. With our call in-progress push alerts and intuitive systems, clients keep a finger on the pulse of their operation at all times and can respond immediately if a call requires their immediate attention.”

“ASD Mobile for Android” joins the company's five-star rated iPhone app. With over 3,000 downloads and 40 positive reviews, the ASD Mobile iPhone app has revolutionized how ASD's clients conduct business. The company expects the Android version of the app will deliver the same value and efficiency for Android users.
