Passare® Announces New Barcode Tracking App
April 10, 2019
Passare, Inc. is excited to announce the release of a new barcode tracking mobile app that is now integrated with Passare’s arrangement application. The barcode tracking app allows funeral home staff to scan barcodes assigned to decedents, locations, and personal effects quickly and easily using a mobile device. The app is being offered to Passare subscribers at no additional cost.
“Many of our funeral home customers were spending a lot of time manually tracking decedent transfers using a very time-consuming process,” said Passare CEO, Jay Thomas. “It’s a process that is inherently flawed, and can lead to errors, which opens up a firm to liability. Passare’s app gives funeral homes a scalable model for establishing a very reliable chain of custody system that ensures that they are offering the highest standard of care to the families they serve.”
The app allows funeral home staff to scan barcodes assigned to decedents and personal items and tie those barcodes to a person, a time, and a location using the phone’s map coordinates. Funeral homes can also assign scannable barcodes to locations such as prep rooms, viewing rooms, or refrigeration units. Unlike any other software or app in the funeral profession, Passare’s app allows funeral homes to track any disposition type and provides access to vital tracking information anytime, anywhere, using any device.
“Our customers who have tested the app are telling us that it has made their lives so much easier,” said Chris Baber, VP and Chief Product Officer. “It adds another layer of protection to an organization and gives families peace of mind about the transfer process. The best thing about this latest version of the app is that it integrates with your entire case management system in Passare. So, any time you need to know the location of a decedent or his or her personal belongings, you can go right to that case and find the information you need in the app or in the main platform.”
