Created by the ICCFA Personalization Committee, the KIP program honors recipients in four categories. TribuCast™, received Honorable Mention in the Most Innovative Personalized Product category.
The ICCFA’s 2019 KIP Awards contest attracted 47 entries from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Guatemala, and the United States. Communications and marketing professionals from outside the cemetery and funeral service profession performed the judging.
The TribuCast™ Remote Attendance System™ creates a private online environment that closely matches the in-person experience of attending a funeral. Using TribuCast™ helps all loved ones grieve more effectively by including those who can’t be there in person and by creating a highly personalized enduring tribute to the life that was lost. Through its easy-to-use live stream technology and interactive touchpoints, TribuCast™ helps share family history and fond memories and put the life that was lost into greater context for both in-person and remote attendees. There are six interactive touchpoints that surround the livestream of the funeral providing photos, videos, and more to create a life-affirming narrative about the deceased that adds to and amplifies the message of the funeral service to the loved ones watching from afar.
All KIP Awards recipients will be featured in future issues of the ICCFA Magazine, and on display at the ICCFA 2020 Annual Convention & Exposition, March 30 – April 2 at the Henry B. González Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. The ICCFA congratulates this year’s winners for their commitment to honoring the life stories of the families they serve.
