It’s hard to lose a loved one; it’s even more challenging when you’re in charge of all the funeral arrangements while still trying to process grief. Calling up funeral homes, playing phone tag with florists, selecting a coffin, and everything else about planning a funeral is unnecessarily stressful and costly. The team at PLOT came to us with the idea that committed to creating a new way to plan funerals.
It was our first task to plan and design a web application for PLOT. A family member can enter in their religious preferences, budget, date, and additional requirements to generate a packaged list of local recommendations. Users can either proceed with suggested packages or make any specific adjustments if necessary. No having to shop around for pricing endlessly, it’s all listed. No having to confirm dates or availability. One-time check out, and in less than five minutes, family members can plan a funeral.
The result? We designed a web app that has a calming and functional design that helps those who need quick and vetted recommendations that are within budget find them quickly. Our product flow for PLOT was designed to encourage customers to make quick and convenient transactions, which in turns helps funeral businesses dramatically lower their sales cycles.
While PLOT needs to get paid, so do all of its participating vendors. As a result, we built the platform to make instant payouts, which allows all parties involved in a single transaction be paid automatically in real-time without requiring any manual effort. To be able to serve many customers on day one, PLOT would need to have built-in automation capabilities.
PLOT is also meant to help the loved ones raise money for funerals as well, so we built the web app to be able to accept online donations to contribute to funeral costs directly.
"They were pretty much spot on and I have no complaints. They were more on top of things than I was at times. I needed that since I’m doing this on the side. Everything was done over Gmail and they kept a sense of open door communication. If I was in the product phase and I’m working with the product manager, I had their cell phone and I could call them anytime. It was awesome!"

We built PLOT as a responsive website application using PHP with Laravel, MySQL, HTML5, and CSS3. For the administrator and server-side, we also used PHP with Laravel. The frontend website was created using WordPress, HTML5, and CSS3.
We're a full stack design & development agency that is as hands-on as a CTO+Team out of the box. It is much harder to find a team with great chemistry that has the shared talent to back it up, and we take pride in our effort to achieve both.Schedule a consultation with us
