2018 Award

Co-op Funeralcare

The judges said

It is a testament to Co-op’s digital vision that they chose to focus on this part of the business and chose to transform clients’ experience at one of the most difficult times of people’s lives

Entrant's description

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult events we have to face. At this stressful time you must then organise a funeral. Our Funeralcare colleagues are professional, caring and capable, but the old methods of organising funerals too often left them without time to spend with their clients. Arranging a funeral is far more complex than it may initially appear and errors simply cannot happen. Until now this industry has been untouched by digital technology so we’ve worked with funeral directors to build this bespoke digital service. In this very traditional industry, Co-op Guardian is truly transformational.
